Great NJ Band for sure
  Wed. 12/13/17 10:08pm Ajax:

Last night I was looking through my records and found one that I don't remember buying : Roadmaster. "What is this?" I wondered, and played it to my '70s AOR delight. Today at work I tried to find out who this band was and found very little info.

Then I tuned into EFD, who somehow played Roadmaster ! What the what? How? Who? Huh? Why?

In conclusion, Godspeed EFD and all the world's coincidences.

One of my favorite parts is that he chooses Black Sabbath's Behind the Wall of Sleep as one of his songs to play :)

thanks for The Smithereens set, Evan. Was lucky to see them a couple of times at The Court Tavern — R.I.P. and thanks, Pat
  Wed. 12/13/17 10:23pm Ajax:

It wasn't Fortress, the Roadmaster LP I have is their aptly named 2nd LP "Sweet Music".

I still think it's plenty weird that we both played Roadmaster within a day of each other though.

@Ajax, yes, 100% agree!

Nice Belbury Circle track. I wonder if the title has anything to do with Cloudburst Flight from Tangerine Dream.
