Recently enjoyed. Happy birthday Joey! I forget where I got this, but it’s a Spanish import, so it was not too expensive. I know I got in the early 90s in Wisconsin. No lee than $15 bucks. Maybe 12! If I inly had one Ramones album it would be this one. Breezing through 28 songs on 4 sides. The best of their initial strike. The vice is driving, fun, and perfect. I saw them in the 90s with CJ and it was too fast and chaotic. This is fast, but together. Also, one of my favorite live albums of all time.

Sad. And strange to think they are all gone.

Recently acquired. I bought this at a flea market in my neighborhood for $2. He had a table with wooden bins, well marked prices and everything was in plastic sleeves. Even the $2 bin. Class act. This is a late BÖC album, but it’s solid. Sinister riffs, theatrical arrangements, and the odd pop hook as a payoff. Less cheesy than some of their heavily 80s offerings like Club Ninja… (which I love) and more dramatic and dastardly like The Red And The Black (which I love). I still haven’t seen these guys, after a few botched attempts from Milwaukee to Jones Beach. One day…

Recently enjoyed. I picked this up at Resale Records in Madison, Wi. for $3.25 shortly after Portastatic covered St. Elmo’s Fire. (1995). Pretty sweet deal for an Eno album. I was reminded to pull this one out again after a reference to the John Parr song of the same name on the wonderful TV show, Raising Hope. Great show, but I had to cleanse my palette from the John Parr version.

Recently acquired. Finally picked this up at my local, Music Matters for the going rate of $20. Bob does it again. Almost as good as Silver Age, which was awesome. The single has the typical bubblegum greatness ant the rest of the album is populated with all the other great moods found on every Bob album from the Hüskers to Sugar. I feel so blessed to live in world where I can drop the needle on a track like Mister Grey that’s firey, passionate, tuneful, and exhibits the fine craftsmanship Bob has been honing since 1980! Bob forever.

Recently enjoyed. I finally found this about 6-7 years ago. I think it was in the Other Music dollar bin. That or Academy. Years after it first came out and I fell in love with the single, Live It Up. It’s got some other nice little songs on it too. A friend recently posted the video for Nips Are Getting Bigger. Now I need to get that album.

Recently acquired. $2 at 5th Avenue Records And Tapes. My local second hand vinyl store is closing. Maybe because they raised the price on their dollar bin to a two dollar bin. Wrong as that may be, I picked a few up, because I won’t be able to later. 

I’m really filling out my late Rod collection. This one has that cheesy Love Touch from the presumably awful movie, Legal Eagles. I admit, I like when Rod sings the line “I wanna be good for you, I didn’t me to be bad”. Rod had always delivered colloquialisms in song well. 

A lot of heavy hitters were involved in this album. Mike Chapman of ChinnChap cowrote Love Touch and Bob Ezrin produced the rest. There are a couple good songs on here and Rod can always sing great. He does a dramatic rendition of In My Life with strings. The arrangement is a little heavy handed, but a great song done by a great singer.

Recently enjoyed. Previously owned by my stepmother. Before I even put the needle down I started getting excited and even almost moved to tears just reading the track list for this one. So many amazing songs packed into this one. 
I mean really: 

Side One 
1.    “Green River” 
2.	“Commotion” 
3.	“Tombstone Shadow” 
4.	“Wrote a Song for Everyone” 
Side Two:
1.	“Bad Moon Rising”  
2.	“Lodi” 
3.	“Cross-Tie Walker”
4.	“Sinister Purpose” 5. “The Night Time Is the Right Time 

Wrote A Song For Everyone is a tear jerker to listen to too. Tombstone Shadow is awesome and has a sweet one-note solo. And Lodi may be my favorite CCR song of all. In fact, after singing my 2 year old to sleep with it as a lullaby for the last few months I decided I finally needed to listen to it, which is why I pulled it out.




I would like to add that Credence seem to be highly underrated to me. They had a huge string of hits and are still ubiquitous on the radio, yet I seldom hear them mentioned in the beloved echelons of the “classic” “best band of all time” ranks of the 60s. The Who, The Beatles, The. Stones, Zep, Beach Boys, etc.. Personally, I’d wedge them in over The Stones and Zeppelin, at least. The Stones had more albums (even if you cut them off after Goats Head Soup (which I do)) and Zep had Bonham, but Creedence had string of albums where every song is good, and Doug Clifford is an awesome drummer in his own, perfect, simple way. Oh, and Fogerty can sing circles around Jagger and Plant. They weren’t as diverse or as expansive, but they were consistent and earnest and their cultural legacy stands shoulder to shoulder with those other bands (except the Beatles). Why don’t more people talk about CCR? 

P.S. John Frusciante pops up when I type “John F” to tag John Fogerty!if that’s not a messed up priority, I don’t know what is.

Recently acquired. I found this in a pile if leftover stoop sale items. $00.00. It is half of a 2-record set. Some of the artists listed are on the missing record, which would be more disappointing if I had actually paid for it. Some goods songs on here and nice versions of other good songs. The Hagers do a nice Your Render Loving Care. Charlie Louvin’s Will You Visit Me On Sundays, and Johnnie & Jonie Mosby’s One Has My Name are great too. Despite the disappointment that “Merle Haggard’s Strangers” do an instrumental without Merle Haggard, it’s a good listen all the way through.

Recently acquired. I found this in the garbage around the corner from my house. The first thee songs are good. There is a very sweet Rhodes piano vibe in the title track that, alone makes me glad I rescued it. After that, the entertainment value begins to tank. Some randy blues jams, a bluegrass instrumental and other nonsense ensue. Also, I now have What A Fool Believes, which is not on my Best Of. Another bonus is there’s a big picture of a roach in the inside cover. Hur hur.
