Snowpocalypse Now!

The snow is coming -- run for your lives!!!



Me, I'm holing up with a case of elitist chardonnay, lotsa food stuffs and the box set of the complete Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes series at the casa of a certain Shady Dame of my acquaintance. In other words, taking it easy till it all blows over.

Regular posting resumes on Monday; in fact, next week will be a theme week of sorts -- hint: it involves the 40th anniversary of a particular album. A coveted No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who guesses which one.

Frampton Comes Alive!!

Well, maybe not.

Blue Ash Fan said...

Station to Station?

Hint: It's a compilation of sorts.

Wouldn't be the Nuggets reissue on Sire, would it? That came out in 76 (though the original release came out earlier...) I have the Sire reissue.

Faithful by Todd Rundgren might fit your criteria ("of sorts")

Monty Python Live at City Center?

Live Bullet?

The Sun Sessions.

The EAGLES GREATEST HITS 1971-75?
That's a good guess, but probably not what you're looking for.

I don't have an exact title in mind, but maybe a comp of novelty or punk stuff on RHINO RECORDS?
Am I getting warm?

1- I'm thinking maybe this is a Jersey thing... how about SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY & THE ASBURY JUKES "I DON'T WANNA GO HOME" ? But that's not a compilation, unless there's something I don't know.

2- Failing that, any more hints, Mr. Simels ?

Sometimes the most obvious answer is the best: how about THE BEATLES "ROCK & ROLL MUSIC" double-LP set. CAPITOL released "Got To Get You Into My Life" from this comp and got the Beatles back into the Top 40 Singles Chart on BILLBOARD back in 1976.
