    Stories - About Us (1973)

    Surprisingly strong album, with or without "Brother Louie" in tow. There's a Left Banke connection and you can tell it in the songwriting and performances on this. Also, if you like this album, be sure to track down The Beckies' LP from 1976, which is very similar.

    Review The Cars - The Cars (1978)

    It's definitely diminishing returns for me and these guys. I love this debut album, like Candy-O and can take or leave most of the rest of their output.

    Review Heart - Heart (1985)

    This album has not aged well. Musically, it has that mid-1980s gloss that's dated terribly. Even the cover photo is embarrassing.

    Yard Trauma

    Thanks, I have lots of 80's and 90's era garage rock sitting around. I found that Yard Trauma album just a couple of years ago, when we were in Boston.

    Looking for a song with Roxanne in the lyrics.

    I caught the point. I know you were making a joke.

    Looking for a song with Roxanne in the lyrics.

    The Jim Capaldi song is from 1983, so it's not that one.

    The great 180 gram vinyl rock n roll swindle

    Vinyl has become a viable niche market again, thus all of the $30 vanity pressings. This includes thicker vinyl, limited quantities, colored vinyl, etc. A label like Norton releases new vinyl LP's for $12, if that tells you anything about how pumped up the price has gotten on this other stuff.

    Most Overrated Artists/Bands of 70s?

    I agree it can come off as too brash or whatever for some people's taste. I know a few folks who's taste otherwise lines up pretty well with mine that don't like it at all. That aside, it's also more rock and roll than about 98% of what gets discussed here.

    Most Overrated Artists/Bands of 70s?

    Nonetheless, it's a great record. Side one just rips from start to finish. The idea these guys couldn't play well enough to make a great rock and roll record is a well worn cliche and a completely silly argument.

    Most Overrated Artists/Bands of 70s?

    I don't know, I hadn't listened to this album in a few years and bought a used copy in a record store this week. Despite all the naysayers, it's pretty freaking great . I just don't get why people who profess to love rock and roll don't like this record. It's pure rock and roll, loud, trashy...
