Talk on Corners is the second album by Irish band The Corrs, released on 20 October 1997 in Ireland and 16 April 1998 in the United States. The name of the album is derived from a line from the album's song "Queen of Hollywood". "And her friends they talk on corners, they could never comprehend" After its release, songs from this album were to dominate their live set for a long time to come and through the biggest growth period of the band's career. During this album's long reign, they worked solidly with very little time off and gained a lot of exposure with TV appearances and tours. Their next studio album took nearly 3 years to materialise. In between was a live 'unplugged' album which introduced only a handful of new songs. Hence their continuing reliance on existing material, some of which became subject to rearranging or remixing along the way. Talk on Corners was The Corrs' breakthrough album in the UK, but not initially. The first 3 single releases from the album ("Only When I Sleep", "I Never Loved You Anyway" and "What Can I Do") all failed to reach the top 40. Meanwhile they had contributed to the album Legacy: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac's Rumours with their version of the song "Dreams". They had incorporated the song into their live set and eventually decided to release it as a single. Its release followed a live concert at the Albert Hall on 17 March 1998 (St Patrick's Day), televised by the BBC, coupled with a day-long TV special devoted to The Corrs on VH-1 as a preamble to the event. In concert, they were joined byFleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood (who was also producer of theLegacy album) on 3 songs, including "Dreams". The event did much to raise the band's profile. The single 'Dreams' was released a few weeks later and theTalk on Corners album was reissued with the track 'Dreams' added. A remixed version of the single became their first UK top 10 hit, partly helped by BBCRadio One's decision to include a Corrs single on their playlist for the first time (they had previously regarded them as a folk band).
