Shame they never officially released Steve Albini's production of In Color.

...Jersey *is* southern to us up here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Sid:

...cause this is great but the muffled Werman production holds it back a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Said it before but - used to shy away from CheapTrick vinyl cause of the mastering or something - in my little head...As such a perfect blend of Beatles / Who (via the Move) it was always catnip to me - but
...Like the Demo!

Great set today. I haven’t heard The Merton Parkas since what seems like the nineteenth century. Great curveball.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Sid:

You've been staring at those flying records too long... as have I. The audio fits as a soundtrack though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Sid:

Nah, sounds good.
Avatar 3:34pm James in ATL:

Terrific start - Good afternoon Mike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Bob Slee:

Sid knows these things
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Sid:

55 cents at Caldor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Sid:

I think Cheap Trick's Budokan was their breakthrough due to the tougher production, despite the material on the early albums being better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Bob Slee:

I heard Tarzan wrote it....
Avatar 3:41pm CentralScrutinizer:

Info on that track was great. I did not know that. Thanx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...then again - my rekerd players were sometimes so bad that Sabbath for example might not even play...Digital ain't all bad...
Avatar 3:46pm CentralScrutinizer:

Normally,I'd be thinking "I miss Todd" about now, but not today.
That's something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Sid:

Yeah, Mike is rockin'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Bob Slee:

So true! Mike, ever noticed Kim Kix with his band 'POWERSOLO' ? Think he's got something for you you like...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Mike Sin:

Thanks for all the comments, folks! Wish I could jump in and get in on some of the convos, but I'm just not nimble enough when I've got to cue these records!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Sid:

Mike, you cue, we'll spew.

Avatar 4:08pm Mailman Tom:

I got to meet Blue Cheer before they went onstage at the Fillmore East back in April of 1968. What a thrill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm TomDash:

Hey Mike - great show! 4th or 5th time I've heard these mind melting Blue Cheer demos since they hit the new arrivals bins at the station - not complaining in the least!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Met Dickie Peterson not long before he died. Man - did I think he was KEWL.

The Chesterfield Kings had a way of sounding like they were contemporaries of their '60s role models rather than some sort of distorted funhouse mirror version like way too many of their actual peers.

Hello Gaylord!
  4:40pm debt collector:

The end is very confident. Hilarious
