From 1969, and their eponymous debut album, please enjoy the incomparable NRBQ and their high octane revival of Eddie Cochran's 1958 classic "C'mon Everybody."
That song is so simple, infectious and beautifully put together that it can almost make you giddy, which I guess is what a lot of great rock-and-roll does (or should). But what I particularly like about this version -- which, obviously, ups the energy level considerably from Cochran's original -- is the way it seems to be falling apart (but ultimately doesn't) in the long intro section. It's a trick the Q did a lot, come to think of it.
In any event, just a great, actually kind of perfect record.
And hey, you know -- this is fun. I think we'll do the whole Rock 'n' Roll thing for all of next week.
