Yellow Pills Keep You Regular!!!

[Maintenance Note: Divshare is currently in one of its occasional "fuck you and this freebie shit -- either sign up or you can't embed stuff for another two weeks" phases. So player widgets are currently unavailable. And that includes all the player widgets on every post I've put up here for the last several years.

Fear not, though; they will magically reappear on July 14, and I will still be posting easily accessible download links until business as usual resumes.

We now return to our regular posting already in progress.]

And speaking as we were last week of the invaluable (and, alas, now out of print) Yellow Pills series of power pop compilations, from Volume III, in 1995, please enjoy my chums The Rock Club and their definitively winsome/chimey "Time Will Tell on You."

Authored by lead singer Ronnie D'Addario, and a snappy little number which drummer Glen Bob Allen rightly refers to as "quite possibly the greatest song ever written."

And he should know.

Download it HERE.

I should add that Glen Bob is also the percussive force behind the fabulous Floor Models, the twelve-string jangle gods with whom I toiled for many years, and whose 2012 album is being reissued by the incredibly perceptive Australian folks at Zero Hour Records later this year.

You're welcome.

Wait a minute. How can this be the greatest song ever written? There's no involvement of Steven M. Krikorian.

Gotta admit I thought the same "greatest song" thing when I first heard this on Yellow Pills. And I don't even know these guys or anything about them. What a shame there was no follow up.
