It’s time for episode 71 of Love That Album, the first in 2015 of the regular series.

I am joined by first-time co-presenter David Daskal, (frequent co-host of All Time Top Ten and vocalist for Best Of My Love, an L.A. based Eagles tribute band) to talk about Joe Jackson’s second album I’m The Man (1979). He’d released his first album, Look Sharp! earlier the same year to strong public interest. Jackson has always put together great bands across his career, but this one was indeed a force of nature featuring the exciting and frenetic  playing of Dave Houghton, Gary Sanford, and career-long bassist for Jackson, Graham Maby. David and I discuss our thoughts on Jackson, the influence these musicians had on his sound, his career diversity, and of course, the songs on I’m The Man.

Eric Reanimator brings his first Album I Love segment for the year with Ball Hog Or Tug Boat by ex Minutemen bass player Mike Watt.

I introduce a new segment to play a song each show from any musicians in the Love That Album / Feed My Ears community. Please feel free to send me a song of any genre that you’ve recorded with a little information how folks can hear more of your work or see you live. This episode around, I am playing a song from excellent Melbourne power pop band The Wellingtons. Dig it.

…..and I received not one but TWO pieces of feedback!!!!!!

Happy New Year everyone. Love That Album podcast is back again for 2015. We here at LTA headquarters will strive to continue to bring you great music discussion.

We start the year off with an episode of LTA: The Compilation Series hosted by Eric Reanimator…..and he’s bringing you a high dose of energetic punk and garage sounds via two fantastic compilations.

First of all, Eric discusses an Australian compilation Do The Pop!: The Australian Garage Rock Sound 1976-1987. Eric’s passion for Radio Birdman was the starting point for him picking up on this brilliant 2 CD set, but there’s a treasure trove of material here from the likes of the Hoodoo Gurus, The Eastern Dark, The Saints, The Sunnyboys and a plethora of other bands, mixing and influenced by the punk, garage and pop sounds of the 60s and 70s. This corner of the world was making essential music all northern hemisphere music fans of these genres need to pick up on. [As an adjunct, I’m hoping to get an interview for a future LTA with the man who put this anthology together – stay tuned].

Then, Eric goes to Sweden to tells us about the virtues of A Real Cool Time Revisited: Swedish Punk, Pop and garage Rock 1982-1989. Essentially, the Swedish equivalent of Do The Pop, it features bands like The Nomads, The Crimson Shadows, The Bottle Ups, and The Creeps. Like the Australian bands, the Swedes put out excellent material in a scene worked independently of the Americans and the British. This is another terrific compilation worthy of your attention.

Once again, Eric delivers the goods with intelligent music discussion about music you truly need to hear. Listen to the podcast and be convinced.

You can download the show by searching for Love That Album in the iTunes store or downloading streaming directly from http://lovethatalbum.blogspot.com
