Today’s Cool Album the Day (#273 in the Series) is The dB’s, Like This.

Here’s a band that deserved a better fate. They released some of the best pop music of the 80s. They’re still playing music as well.

The dB’s are led by its two front men, Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple.

This was one of their more popular releases. It featured two songs that did receive some decent recognition.  They were ‘Love is for Lovers’ and ‘Spy in the House of Love’

I wasn’t able to find as many videos that I was hoping to find.  But have no fear, you can listen to the album in its entirety via the ‘Cool Album of the Day’ MySpace page.
