Dave Edmunds ‘D.E. 7th’

Posted 06 Mar 2018 in Albums of 1982, Albums of the 80s, Bubby Lewis

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#962 in the Series) is Dave Edmunds, D.E. 7th Welsh rocker, Dave Edmunds released the fabulously rich album, “D.E. 7th,,” in the spring of 1982 after the turmoil of seeing the band he had been with for most of the past decade dissolve and changing record labels. It was his first project for the Columbia label after spending five creatively productive years with Led Zeppelin’s “Swan Song” label and the first in nearly a decade without his old Rockpile cohorts, with whom he recorded and produced as a solo artist, band and on Nick Lowe’s solo projects. Being the talent magnet that he is, he never missed a step by reuniting with...

Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe “Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe Sing The Everly Brothers”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#469 in the Series)  is Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe Sing The Everly Brothers. We’re going to go in a completely different direction today. Today’s Cool Album of the Day wasn’t really an official album.  It was actually a bonus EP released in 1980.  However, it’s so good and so special that I wanted people to know about it. So for those reasons, we’re going to feature it. There are only four songs on this EP.  It is just the two men and their guitars.  You’ll hear a little banter with a DJ in between songs as well at times. This is very hard to find.  I see...

Dave Edmunds “Get It”

Posted 08 Feb 2011 in 70s, Albums of 1977, Albums of the 70s, Rock + Roll

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...

Rockpile ‘Live at Montreux 1980’

Sure we know there were about four or five more albums that could have been called Rockpile, except Dave Edmunds was contracted to one label and Nick Lowe to another, so we never had a second Rockpile album. This one is a live album and features 16 tracks. You’ll find some goodies from all three “franchises, “there are some Rockpile tunes, some songs that were...

Nick Lowe ‘Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family’

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#985 in the Series) is Nick Lowe,  Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family. I love Christmas albums. I have a pretty good collection of them and I usually find something old every year that I add to it. It is rare that I find something new as I am very picky and traditional about my Christmas music. Let’s face it. We have the traditional carols and then about a dozen or so once original pop Holiday songs penned from the 1930’s through the 60’s that get redone over and over again. It is rare that an artist is brave enough to mess with that and if there is anything...

The Flaming Groovies ‘Teenage Head’

Today’s Cool album of the Day (#870 in the Series) is The Flamin Groovies, Teenage Head If the Whigs, The Black Keys, Parquet Courts, Black Angels, or any of the rest of the present day bands  that are making that electric, salty, psychedelic, garage rock music today were a crime scene, the DNA would lead all the way back to the 1965 San Francisco Rock scene, and The Flamin Groovies would be found guilty as charged. While their influence might not quite be considered beatlesque, and the pairing of guitarist Cyril Jordan and singer Roy A. Loney might not exactly be Lennon and McCartney, their impact on the flowers in your hair Grateful Dead, and the trip happy Jefferson...

World Famous Headliners “World Famous Headliners”

  Today’s Cool album of the day(#770 in the Series) is the new self-titled release by The World Famous Headliners. (Big Yellow Dog Publishing) Out of the blue comes an album that I think will be in so many top 10 lists at the end of the year and no one even saw it coming. I think most reviews are going to start with who are these guys? That’s a good question and it’s a great answer but I wanted to start with what really matters, the music. The album’s 15 tracks slip effortlessly from rock and roll to funk, with bits of power pop, country, and 60’s style rock thrown into the mix. It’s a fun from the...

NRBQ “God Bless Us All”

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#682 in the Series) is NRBQ, God Bless Us All I have always felt that God Bless Us All was NRBQ at their absolute peak. In fact, if someone wanted to know an album to start their Q catalog, this was the one I’d always suggest. This was the one that I’d always play at parties and would always get the the Q fans  boppin’.  If you weren’t a Q fan when I put this one on, well you would be soon. “Who’s this?” was a question that was asked more than once when I’d put needle to vinyl. Not only did it catch the band at their peak, but it also...
