Nouvelle Vague does nice covers.

Jack Bruce is one of my heroes.
Avatar 11:19am Juke Joint Jonny:

I liked the laid back piano against the going-for-it drums on that Nouvelle Vague track.

Back in the day, I remember that this tune and Ballroom Blitz hit the radio at about the same time. I could be a little fuzzy about that, but twas a good time for radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Barkevious Shabazz:

These Raspberries tracks battle it for supremacy HARD.
  11:41am egould310:

Raspberries to go with my pancakes for breakfast. Thanks Mike!
Avatar 11:42am David Shortell:

Peter Quill probably considers "Go All The Way" a Number One Hit. It's on his mother's Awesome Mix tape.
Avatar 11:44am Juke Joint Jonny:

Counterpoint: nope.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Listener Baby:

The fact is, I missed that by 15 months. Go All The Way July 1972, Ballroom September 1973. I always remember them as a pair whenever I hear one of them.

and immediately after recording this, the sunshine boys went out drinkin' and carousin'

A little late on this, but today's trivia fact is that Bobby Goldsboro's brother was once Alabama's banking commissioner. That is all.

well, alabama. they're kinda crazy.

It's so maddening. Huntsville is the Rocket City, it's literally full of rocket scientists. Really, really nice place. Yet all the strange voters seem to come out of the woods at voting time.

Wow! This Cornershop tune sounds so solid! Amazing. I remember liking it when it was new, but it didn't make a big impression. Good one.
