ALBUMS

Joe Walsh - You Bought It, You Name It.jpg

  • JOE WALSH: YOU BOUGHT IT- YOU NAMED IT: 1983: ROCK: GRADE: C. VINYL: I really liked But Seriously Folks and There Goes The Neighborhood was decent so when this came out I bought it- a big disappointment. A couple songs are alright- I Can Play That Rock and Roll and maybe Class of ’65. The rest is Joe trying to be funny- it falls flat.

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Cosmo's Factory.jpg

  • CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL: COSMOS FACTORY: 1970: ROCK: GRADE: A+. VINYL: Travelin’ Band, Lookin’ Out My Back Door, Run Through The Jungle, Up Around The Bend, Who’ll Stop The Rain, Long As I Can See The Light- essential CCR. At  11:05 their cover of “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” is about 9 minutes too long.

  • NICK LOWE: NICK THE KNIFE: 1982: ROCK: GRADE: B. VINYL: Nick’s third album- his first two were brilliant- so this one has always seemed like a disappointment to me- Heart is a great song but I like the earlier Rockpile version more. “Stick It Were The Sun Don’t Shine”, “Burning”, “Queen Of Sheba”,”Too Many Teardrops” are songs to hear- not a bad album just not up to the standards he set earlier.

  1. ‘Cosmos’ is a real good one. “9 min too long”. Love the ways songs hit people differently. Ears like diff things. I like the long jam and would have missed John’s solos. I love his guitar.
    Anyone that gives Lowe any love has my attention. I have some catching up to do on your takes. Man are you prolific!

  2. I love these conversations back and forth. It’s a little bit like trying to follow someone speaking Latin, lol….
    But I learn a few things.
