About this album

It’s Great When You’re Straight… Yeah is the first album by British band Black Grape. It was released in 1995. The album was seen as somewhat of a triumphant comeback for both Shaun Ryder and Bez (both formerly of Happy Mondays). The album represented what some considered an evolution of the Happy Mondays sound on their 1990 album Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches, with more of a hip hop influence, down mostly to the rapping of Kermit, formerly of the band The Ruthless Rap Assassins. The album was a surprise critical and commercial success. It immediately charted at number one in the UK Albums Chart upon it’s release and spawned three Top Twenty singles.

    Pretty sure it means straight as in drug-free, given the singer's history.
