Warren Zevon “Warren Zevon”
I don’t usually pick an artist’s most popular release. But this one is just too darn good.
Yes, it contains ‘Warewolves Of London.’ That track still sounds good. But song after song are just timeless pieces. ‘Lawyer’s, Guns and Money (How many times did you play air drums to those Rick Marotta fills?), Johnny Strikes Up The Band, Rolland The Headless Thompson Gunner, Tenderness on the Block’ and ‘Veracruz.’
Years ago, WXRT here in Chicago ran a Sunday Night hour ‘UnConcert’ of Warren recorded some time back. It was funny to hear a spot they ran right before the tape. It follows, “And You can see Warren Zevon this weekend at the Crown Point, Indiana Fair Grounds for just $9. Appearing with Zevon will be Poi Dog Pondering.”
Crown Point Fairgrounds? Yikes! How did I miss that one!
Go back and take a new listen to Excitable Boy. Today’s Cool Album of the Day!
