Bodeans- Outside Looking In
Ok, this is my favorite Bodeans record. It's where they came into their own and really developed the Bodeans "sound". I know most people prefer the first because it was produced by T-Bone, but I like the Jerry Harrison production better. The Bodeans got T-Bone to produce the album before last, but I wished they would have gotten Harrison again.
It's weird to me that they don't play a lot of these songs live anymore. Every time I see them, I keep hoping for "Dreams" or "Only Love", but they never do. Maybe if I had the balls to talk to them before a show I could talk them into it. I've literally seen these guys 18 times and have never met them. Plenty of opportunites, but just can't bring myself to do it. I'm 37 now and when they are within 10 feet of me offstage I feel like that 16 year old that first discovered and then worshiped them. I know, I'm an idiot.
