Slade- Keep Your Hands Off My Power Supply

23 Oct

This was Slade’s most popular album in the US. For some reason, this album has been out of print for years now. If you can find it used for under $20, go for it. Most should remember their hit Run Runaway, but the stand out track is My Oh My. Such a great song that is still ignored to this day. Keep Your Hands Off My Power Supply spent 18 weeks on the Billboard top 200 albums chart in 1984.

The Rolling Stones – Dirty Work

20 Oct

ESPN has been playing old, odd Rolling Stones songs on Monday Night Football this season. Recently, they played One Hit To The Body off of Dirty Work. This has always been one of my favorite Stones albums, probably because of the album cover, but really for their cover of Harlem Shuffle.

I’m not sure why Stones fans hate this album. The Stones themselves probably hate it. They probably don’t even remember it. 80’s Stones > 70’s Stones. Yeah, I said it. The 2012 Stones are off to a good start. Doom and Gloom is a damn good song.
