Another radio station prize from WMMS.  1979 was a good year for me.

Played once and put away for 50 years.  As Fripp might say, I wasn't ready.

I am now.  Damn.

Good stuff.

Radio station prize from WMMS.  Ground zero for the Cleveland Rocks part.  Same with the Neil Young album.  I was caller # for a whole bunch of things.  Speed dial was brand new back then.  Cleveland Rocks got real hard to take as it was airplayed to death.  There is a London Rocks version out there somewhere.  Haven't found it yet.
You Tube's got it...

This is an album that you can listen to all the way through, both sides.  Bastard and When The Daylight Comes are my two favorites as stand alone songs.

The only reason I know what pressings these albums are is because I've got to be 100% correct about listing these puppies for sale.  Down to the font on the labels sometimes.  What is amazing is how many 1st pressings I have.  Didn't know WTF you were getting back then and didn't really care that much as long as it was scratch free.  Going deep into what's left and pulling out stuff that has sat for 30 to 40 years.  The cherry picked good stuff is pretty much gone.  Right now I've got to fill my store up with as much as I can to hopefully catch some of those impulsively spent tax refund dollars.

Music is a strange mistress.  There is a reason a hook is called a hook. Just got to Evil Woman, played Side B first for some reason.  The ha ha song, never would'a thought about it that way until I heard it again and read the lyrics.  Yeah, ok.  Music is one thing that is so many things to so many different people all at the same time.  Inspired by memories of the composer, creating new ones in the listener that are more often about something else than the music itself.  Like events. Or be the inspiration for events. To mention a few. And created from the universal harmonics that run this plane of existence.

I saw your comment about the synthesizer.  That was pretty revealing about how some of us are really into music while others just have it in the background as nothing more than some static.  

I just reversed the first 30 seconds of Side A to play back the backward masked bit.  It says clear as a bell, "the music is reversable, but time ... turn back ... turn back ... turn back ... "

Someday I'll get around to reversing some of The Beatles stuff and listening to what they actually said.

Haven't played this in 40 years.  Saw them for the Out Of The Blue tour complete with the flying saucer set.  Amazing how Jeff Lynne has been so much in and out of my musical life from The Move through The Wilbury's.  Got Eldorado and Out Of The Blue to do yet.  They have all sat this long.

and so it goes ...

A college buddy drove from Baton Rouge to Atlanta to catch a show on this tour. Mind blown.
 
He got lucky, real lucky.  You never know what he's gonna do.  I saw him solo around the time of the Unplugged stuff hoping for something like this.  Nope, he was in a mood and played stuff that made you wish you were somewhere else listening to one of his albums instead.
 
I've seen him with CSNY quite a few times and that was fun.

I gotta disagree. :)  This is one of my regular go to's.   It's like Invisible Touch Part 2 or something like that.  Home By The Sea is comfort food.



and this one ain't too shabby either ...
