BoDeans “Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams”
Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#90 in the Series) is Bodeans.”Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams.”
The BoDeans are still huge in Chicago. I’m not sure how big they’re ever gotten outside of this area. It’s hard to tell from the inside.
This was their debut release. I personally like the 2nd album, “Outside, Looking In” better, but I’m featuring this one.
This one has many of their concert favorites to this day. “She’s a Runaway, Fadeaway, Still The Night” jump out at you at the top of the disc. Nice opening to a career boys!
BoDeans are basically Sammy Llanas and Kurt Neumann. They’ve gone thru numerous band members. A little birdy told me that they’re not the easiest guys to work with.
This 1985 release was produced by T-Bone Burnett.
The title comes from the Rolling Stones ‘Shattered.’
