Part of the Furniture Now

Boston, Massachusetts
1) Forget All About It (Nazz - Nazz Nazz)
2) The Song Remains The Same (Led Zeppelin - Houses Of The Holy)
3) The Changeling (Doors - LA Woman)
4) Sunshine Of Your Love (Cream - Disraeli Gears)
5) Glad (Traffic - John Barleycorn Must Die)
Forget all about it by Nazz is a great rock record. A hidden gem with particularly terrific drum. The rest of the album is good too. Todd Rundgreon's early band. As i recall, the album was red vinyl.

1. Rock & Roll Damnation (AC/DC - Powerage)
2. Thunder Road (Springsteen - Born to Run
3. Wichita Lineman (Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman)
4. Detroit Rock City (Kiss - Destroyer)

Wichita Lineman is both a great record and a truly beautiful song. It has been called the first existential love song. " And I need you more than want you and I want you for all time."

Agreed...and I feel the same way about Wichita Skyline, Shawn Colvin's homage to Wichita Lineman (even inserts the WL guitar riff) although not really a love song, but certainly existential.

Thanks for posting this. Colvin's song " Sunny Came Home" is one of the really great songs of the 90s and incredibly deceptive in its lovely melody juxtaposed with its searing meaning. I wonder if you have ever listened to any of Ellis Paul's music. He has worked with Colvin and a number of others.

Agree about Sunny Came Home...and that whole album is exceptional. Wichita Skyline is probably my favorite from it, but some real gems on there like 84,000 Different Delusions, Suicide Alley.

No, I'm not familiar with him...will have to look him up.
