It’s time for episode 71 of Love That Album podcast, the first in 2015 of the regular series.
I am joined by first-time co-presenter David Daskal, (frequent co-host of All Time Top Ten and vocalist for Best Of My Love, an L.A. based Eagles tribute band) to talk about Joe Jackson’s second album I’m The Man (1979). He’d released his first album, Look Sharp! earlier the same year to strong public interest. Jackson has always put together great bands across his career, but this one was indeed a force of nature featuring the exciting and frenetic playing of Dave Houghton, Gary Sanford, and career-long bassist bass player for Jackson, Graham Maby. David and I discuss our thoughts on Jackson, the influence these musicians had on his sound, his career diversity, and of course, the songs on I’m The Man.
Eric Reanimator brings his first Album I Love segment for the year with Ball Hog Or Tug Boat by ex Minutemen bass player Mike Watt.
I introduce a new segment to play a song each show from any musicians in the Love That Album / Feed My Ears community. Please feel free to send me a song of any genre that you’ve recorded with a little information how folks can hear more of your work or see you live. This episode around, I am playing a song from excellent Melbourne power pop band The Wellingtons. Dig it.
…..and I received not one but TWO pieces of feedback!!!!!!
