In any case, there's a brand new video for the album's first track below.
My notes open thusly.
Let's make one thing perfectly clear right from the start -- there are cult albums, there are Cult Albums, and then there's Marc Jonson's 1972 Vanguard LP Years.
I mean, if you're a power pop aficionado, you may be aware of the songs Jonson gave to other more celebrated recording artists (The Roches, Dave Edmunds), and you are almost certainly aware of his power pop masterpiece 12 in a Room (from 2000) -- still available over at Amazon, and if you don't already own it get over there and purchase it pronto. But otherwise, unless you're either one of Marc's personal friends or one of the handful of folks who stumbled across a vinyl rip of Years from an illegal download site sometime in the current century, then chances are the CD you are now holding in your hands is going to feel like it just bopped in from an alternate universe.
And therein, as you might suspect, lies a tale...
To read the rest of them -- and hear some other very interesting songs -- you'll have to buy the CD, which I believe will be unleashed sometime later this year.
