Welcome back to Love That Album podcast.

 

For episode 65, I am really happy to welcome Scott Clickers to the music discussion table. Scott and his wife Kat host an excellent film podcast called Married Witch Clickers. Their films are diverse and the show always makes for fascinating and enjoyable listening.

 

Scott and I do a dissection on Neil Young's 1989 album Freedom. Neil had spent most of the eighties recording albums for Geffen Records that many fans found unsatisfactory or avoided all together. Geffen attempted to sue Neil for making "untypical" Neil Young albums. On"Freedom", Neil's second album after returning to Reprise, he puts paid to the ridiculous notion that there is such a thing as a "typical" Neil Young album. Diversity and songwriting are its strengths. Neil gives us the feedback laden rock and gorgeous acoustic numbers. I make the case that this is a concept album. Why? Tune in and find out.

Eric Reanimator continues to show his love for Drivin’ and Cryin’ by bringing them back to his Album I Love segment with a discussion on their 1988 album Whisper tames The Lion.

NOTE: Slight reversal in Love That Album podcast schedule. Normally the Compilation Series episodes come out later in the month with the regular episode coming out mid-month. From this month, it’s the Compilation episode first with the regular coming out late in the month.

For episode 8 of LTA: Compilation Series, Eric Reanimator has picked two covers albums to give some love to. First of all he discusses The Ramones’  1993 album “Acid Eaters” where they pay homage to the bands they grew up listening to (The Who, The Stones, CCR, Love) but still give them the Ramones treatment.  The other record is from Eric’s beloved Hellacopters - their final album “Head Off”. Their inspiration was bands that didn’t achieve the success The Hellacopters believed they deserved (Demons, The Robots, The Bellrays). Nobly, they brought these tunes to their own audience’s attention in the hope their fans would search the originals out.

Another great episode from Eric you should all dig with some exciting songs and performances.
