When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Bobby & The Midnites “Bobby & The Midnites”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day is the self titled album by ‘Bobby and The Midnites.”

Are you familiar with this one? You should be.
Talk about a great grouping of musicians.

Bobby is Bob Weir ( guitar, vocals) of the Grateful Dead.
This was one of his many side projects.

Released in 1981, the rest of the band features one of the greatest drummers that ever put wood to skin, Billy Cobham. Bass duties were held by another heavy weight, Alphonso Johnson. Bobby Cochran on guitar and vocals. Keyboards? Brent Mydland of the Dead.

Even with the jazz influences, this was still a rock and roll record.
Tons of great tracks, including ‘Too Many Losers, Book of Rules’ and ‘Haze.’
