Looking through Discogs, not only was "Street Party" on #18, it was also on #17.
A local record store used to have some of the A&M promos (such as 4-track album samplers), and I bet they would have had something like this for only a couple of dollars each, back in the day. They've been gone for decades--the owner sucked the profits out to start a music club/theater that has since changed hands every few years.nowadays they would have been "Interesting collectibles "
Great Choice I have the 2001 CD reissue with bonus tracks from "Return of the Pink Panther " which happen to be my favorite tracks from that sequel" and Peter sellers liner notes on the album are Hilarious ( Sellers was with the Goon Show long before his International Fame )Breaking in some tubes in the recent desktop amp switch, and spinning this one tonight:
And they make a lot more sense now than when I was reading them at 7 or 8 years old.... and Peter sellers liner notes on the album are Hilarious ...
Our local dance station (??) used to play the instrumental version from what was probably a promo 12" single. They were also the ones that introduced me to The Police (via "Voices Inside My Head").That’s a good one to blast at traffic lights if you’re in kind of a mood.
It appears that you're not much younger than me, Rudy. I was a college sophomore when Combat Rock was released.I think it's time for some "Radio Clash," doncha think?
Yep, we're about the same age. "Rock The Casbah" came out the month before graduation (June 1982), and I remember Ghost In The Machine (The Police) made some waves among a few of us at school, with Prince's Controversyi being an underground favorite (many listened but wouldn't admit it ) and MTV being the new fascination for those who had cable TV at the time.It appears that you're not much younger than me, Rudy. I was a college sophomore when Combat Rock was released.
I still blast "Should I Stay or Should I Go" from time to time. I've even been known to sing along (badly).
Shhh... don't tell the gang in the Carpenters forum!
