i Love this album...and i was just listening to some vintage who, so - perfect...

oh, i meant "who came first"...the versions are similar though.
  Mon. 6/20/16 12:34am Carmichael:

I was stationed in Korea when this album came out.
  Mon. 6/20/16 12:35am Carmichael:

Petty, I mean.
  Mon. 6/20/16 12:35am SeanG:

love it
  Mon. 6/20/16 12:40am Carmichael:

I saw Petty's album in the BX while shopping, not hearing anything "western". The Wall also came out then, and The Records 1st (and only?) album. Quite an era. Oh, also Alan Parsons' "Eve".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/20/16 12:41am DJ PB:

@Carmichael - The Records have 3 LPs, I believe. The first two are both great! (Don't have the third.)
  Mon. 6/20/16 12:45am Carmichael:

The "Starry Eyes" one came out back then, 79-80. I loved it. And being Irish, I hold a place in my heart for Horslips.

A lot of Thin Lizzy on playlists this week on WFMU it seems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/20/16 12:52am DJ PB:

@JakeGould The other DJs all knew I was doing this show and were seeking to undermine me! (Not really)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 12:52am coelacanth:

i haven't noticed that, but thin lizzy is a frequent play on the jukebox at the pub.
  Mon. 6/20/16 12:58am Aileen:

their undermining is our gain

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 1:12am coelacanth:

this band is criminally overlooked.
  Mon. 6/20/16 1:13am Todd:

So I think I'm the target demographic DAD you are aiming at. When I was in middle school, 1972 there was a teen hard rock band that played an after school gig at my school-they played Fire and Water-I heard this cover version before i even heard free doing it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 1:16am coelacanth:

re: steppenwolf live - most of it's legit, but that track and 1-2 others were added by the label to make up a double album. i don't think they added audience sounds; but arranged the studio cuts in-between live ones, effectively dubbing in crowd sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/20/16 1:16am DJ PB:

@coelacanth - Aerosmith, probably not quite as overlooked

@Todd - I don't know if you're quite in the boomer demo. Gen X forever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 1:24am coelacanth:

well, i guess i'm the dadrock demographic; but as far as i know i'm not a dad.

That would be so cute!

I have a name for this kind of rock: “Mansplaining Rock!”

@JakeGould - Lindsay Buckingham definitely doing some mansplaining on this track!

Your facts about the Move's Split Ends (US) was Message in the Country (UK) was correct.
  Mon. 6/20/16 2:12am Violet in Cali:

WFMU: We get the facts right
  Mon. 6/20/16 2:14am Clay Pigeon:

Iron City Houserockers! One of Stephen King's favorite bands. Browsville Station, too. Great stuff, Paul.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 2:15am coelacanth:

(well, if we need more useless information - "Love it to Death" was technically on "straight" records - a subdivision of warner created by Frank Zappa.)
  Mon. 6/20/16 2:15am Violet in Cali:

(I love your "useless" information)

Garth Brooks did a nice version of Hard Luck Woman. Here he is with Kiss live. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JinITWtW06U
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/20/16 2:19am DJ PB:

@coelacanth - Hmmm... didn't see Straight on the LP sleeve. Are you sure it wasn't the first two Alice LPs on Straight before the switched to WB?
  Mon. 6/20/16 2:21am Clay Pigeon:

Concerning Love It To Death ---- Wiki sez: "The original album cover featured Cooper posed with his thumb protruding so it appeared to be his penis; Warner Bros. soon replaced it with a censored version."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 2:22am coelacanth:

the way i remember it (and i don't have the record here or i'd look) is it's a green warner bros. label on the record with "straight" in a "thought bubble" coming from where it says "warner"...and something like that on the cover as well. (?)
  Mon. 6/20/16 2:23am Violet in Cali:

I wish I was in a van listening to this

Reprise was Sinatra's --- Straight was Zappas label. They were on Straight through Love It To Death.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 2:24am coelacanth:

Clay, i think i have my older brother's copy, which he bought soon after it's release. i have to check for that protrusion!
  Mon. 6/20/16 2:25am Violet in Cali:

Always check for protrusions
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/20/16 2:26am DJ PB:

@Violet I think we can change "Dad Rock" to the non-sexist "Van Rock."
  Mon. 6/20/16 2:26am Violet in Cali:

@PB I agree!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/20/16 2:29am coelacanth:

here's another oft-overlooked excellent album. Crosby's still good too...slightly bland maybe, but not like most of his contemporaries.
Avatar Mon. 6/20/16 2:29am newberry:

Loving these tracks; thanks Paul!

okay i'm off, hopefully to something like sleep.
Thanks Paul. 'twas Lovely! (...and yes - "van rock" will do!)
