Okay, I swear to god that I a) really had planned to do a Weekend Listomania tomorrow and b) I was only kidding yesterday about this being Terry Reid Week. Honest.
But it looks like, uh, it is.
By which I mean -- from his 1979 album Rogue Waves, please enjoy old Superlungs and his absolutely astounding cover version of The Ronettes classic "Baby I Love You."
And if that doesn't give you goosebumps, please consult your physician.
I should add, BTW, that I was gonna wonder why this wasn't the hit that finally put Reid on the map until I saw the Rogue Waves album cover.
Seriously -- I was gonna link to it, but it's so fricking hideous I won't inflict it on you; Google it if you're stout of heart. Talk about art direction career
UPDATE: The Rogue Waves cover.
Yeah, yeah...I know, I said I wouldn't. But I lied.
Jeebus fuck, is that the ugliest and most clueless piece of sub-Spinal Tap shlock you've ever seen in your life?
I should also add that it was issued in 1979. When let's just say that there, uh, were other sorts of things taking place in rock.
