Day 320

Tommy Keene- Places That Are Gone

Finally! Back to an album that I thoroughly love and was more than happy to listen to again. Maybe it's just me, but can you think of a more criminally underrated artist in the last 30 years than Tommy Keene? That is, if you even know who he is. Which is the point I'm making. But if you like power pop, then you aren't going to find anyone better at it than Mr. Keene.

This is a 6 song EP he released back in 1984 and every song is outstanding. Two of my all time Tommy Keene faves are on this record. The title track and his cover of Alex Chilton's "Hey! Little Child". Call me crazy, but I like Tommy's version better.

Here's a clip:
