This is a cool record to start this trek off with. Good thing I got rid of that Abba record before I started this!

I actually had this on cd a long time ago when I was going through a phase in my life where I pretty much only listened to "alt-country", so I was pretty stoked when I found it for a buck at Musicmania. I've had it for a few months now, but have only listened to Side 1 before tonight.

I really can't say there is a bad song on this record. Good, fun country rock that was a little before it's time. A little fun fact, Brad Rice was in this band. For those who don't know who he is, he later played with The Backsliders, Son Volt, Ryan Adams, and currently with Tift Merritt.

Favorite tracks are "Two Girls in Love", "Under Your Wing", and "What is Real". The album ends with a cover of The Box Tops "The Letter" which is a little unnecessary.

Alright, record's over and so is this post. One down and a shitload more to go!



  1. I don't get it. What's wrong with Abba? Good luck on the new blog! I look forward to listening to some of the records with you.

  2. Still think this is a crazy experiment. Too robotic for humans. Seems like the reason to have a vast record collection is to always find what fits your mood or what can adjust your mood.

    That being said, your blog's a good read. I just read it in reverse chronological order from Day 10.

    Wishing you patience. I hope you will be able to preserve your sanity & humanity through this process. (This is Patrick)
