Avatar 1:23pm Juke Joint Jonny:

So can we deduce from that sample that the lion's share of tunes on Only the Ugly are novelty songs? I'm in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm DJ Guin:

@Mailman..it is a scientific fact that Rex and Fool's Paradise is a gateway drug. One that should be prescribed to other foolish bastards.

I met Edie in Detroit in 1981-82 when she was touring. It was a magical night.

Hey Suzy, I'm still looking for any anecdotes of, "Fatty Forbes" of the San Francisco Bay Bombers. She had such passion. I saw the team at a sold out MSG ~ circa 1972.
