TVD's Daily Wax | Echo and the Bunnymen "Songs To Learn & Sing"

Despite the absence of a traditional TVD theme...this week and for the foreseeable future (although I have a roots reggae week in the works as the weather warms...) I am sensing a theme I think. If Freddie were here, he'd be singing, " Those were the days of our lives/The bad things in life were so few..."

Echo and the Bunnymen - Do It Clean (Mp3)
Echo and the Bunnymen - Never Stop (Mp3)
Echo and the Bunnymen - Silver (Mp3)
Echo and the Bunnymen - The Back Of Love (Mp3)
Echo and the Bunnymen - The Cutter (Mp3)

TVD - you are certainly on a roll with the nostalgia. It was bad enough that, after an earlier posting, I had to pull out my old copy of Aztec Camera's HIGH LAND, HARD RAIN. Later, it was the English Beat (WHAT IS...) and another record to dust off.

Now you've gone and added perhaps my most played vinyl from the mid-80s. SONGS TO LEARN AND SING was an incredible collection of early to (then) recent top cuts, including the shimmering "Bring on the Dancing Horses."

Later on, I picked up the CD format and was dismayed that version of NEVER STOP contained a different intro from the vinyl release. After so many plays from the vinyl, I couldn't really embrace the alternate take.

If it weren't for you, I couldn't say how long it would have taken to revisit these gems in my collection. Prefab Sprout. INXS. Yes. Beatles. (OK... I've never retired my Beatles collection)

Yours is a wonderful contribution to the blogging world.

Just when I thought I was becoming way too ...predictable. Many thanks, epota...
