Album Cover

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#280 in the Series) is Dave Edmunds,  Get it.

This was Dave Edmunds third album.  It was originally released on Peter Grant’s Swan Song label. You remember that label and classic logo from the Led Zeppelin albums. Bad Company was on it as well.

Like all of Dave albums, you get a ton of songs. There are thirteen on Get it. The longest being 3:23. Get in and Get off!

He picked some interesting covers here. Bob Seger’s “Get Out Of Denver.”  Graham Parker’s “Back to School Days” and others.

Like many Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe albums from this era, this is almost a Rockpile album. Three quarters or Rockpile appear on the disc, with drummer Terry Williams being the third member.

I couldn’t find many videos from this album, so after a few I added some Edmunds’ classics. The last being Robert Plant singing ‘Little Sister’ with Dave and the rest of Rockpile.
