Today was a big day in releases. A lot of things came out. Let’s run through some…
Love To Love You Baby from Donna Summer (with the title track, her first big hit) turns 45. The Roaring Silence from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band (with “Blinded By The Light”) and No Reason To Cry from Eric Clapton each turn 44. Alan Parsons Project’s Eve turns 41 as does Pat Benatar’s In The Heat Of The Night. Wild Planet from B-52s is 40. Garth Brooks’ second and breakthrough album, No Fences, is 30. Pearl Jam’s debut, Ten is 29 as is Hoodoo from Alison Moyet, The Prodigal Stranger from Procol Harum, Bad English’s second and final album, Backlash, and Bob Seger’s The Fire Inside. No Code from Pearl Jam is 24. Uncle Kracker’s No Stranger To Shame which had his cover of “Drift Away” is 18, as is Corporate America, the last Boston album to feature Brad Delp before his suicide.
So, that’s a lot! I had to pick one to do and that was hard. This is the easy out, I think, but such a great rendition. That guy’s voice dips deep in the low baritone, high bass range. I dig it. Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Blame it all on my roots. I showed up in boots. And ruined your black-tie affair. The last one to know, the last one to show, I was the last one you thought you’d see there. And I saw the surprise and the fear in his eyes when I took his glass of champagne. And I toasted you, said, honey, we may be through, but you’ll never hear me complain.” – “Friends In Low Places” (Blackwell/Lee)
