Upstairs at Eric's is the debut album by British synthpop duo Yazoo (known in the US and Canada as Yaz), released in the UK on Mute Records on 20 August 1982. It was produced by the band and . Radcliffe, with assistance from Mute label boss Daniel Miller on some of the tracks.

Yazoo were a duo from Basildon, comprising of synth-king Vince Clarke and singer Alison Moyet. They quickly followed 'Only You' with a storming second single – 'Don't Go' was a belting synth-pop anthem which showcased a bouncing Clarke melody and Moyet's rich and glorious voice. Then, in August of 1982, the pair released their debut album Upstairs At Eric's; a record that married a number of strikingly simple melodies to dark lyrics and Moyet's extraordinary vocal range. In 1982, we already knew about Vince Clarke

Reviews about Yazoo - Upstairs At Eric's (1):
Its always interesting to see if an alternative track-listing works or falls flat on its face. In this case I feel it works pretty well, as the changes mean the vocal sample heavy "In My Room" and "I Before E..." are further apart (and on different sides). Whilst not what the artists intended, this also means the tape is a similar length both sides, as the 2 longest tracks are now both on Side B.
