Love That Album episode 59 - Ross Wilson "Dark Side of the Man" and The Saints "All Fools Day"

Welcome to episode 59 of Love That Album. Joining me at LTA Headquarters is show regular, Michael Pursche (of Sitting In A Bar In Adelaide podcast). We discuss a couple of fine Australian pop albums from the eighties.
Firstly, we talk about a surprisingly neglected album of a major artist – Ross ‘The Boss’ Wilson’s “Dark Side of the Man” from 1989. We follow up with The Saints’ 1986 album “All Saints Day” – a long way from their “I’m Stranded” debut. Both albums are from artists who’d been on the music scene for a while and had changed direction. Echoes of LTA episode 58’s discussion on Bruce Springsteen’s album "High Hopes" hang over both these records. Tune into the show and discover why.

As usual, Eric Reanimator contributes another wonderful Album I Love segment, discussing The Damned’s “Black Album” from 1980. Like The Saints, they were a punk band looking for different directions to travel.
…and I received some real honest to goodness feedback to read to you…..YAY!!!!!

Love That Album Bonus Episode - The Comp Series Ep:1 - Songs The Cramps Taught Us

Hey folks,

Here’s an exciting new development at LTA headquarters. As you know, Eric “Reanimator” Peterson has been doing his Album I Love segment for the show for quite a large part of its history. I asked Eric if he was interested in doing an ongoing series of bonus episodes for the show, and I am thrilled to present to you the first episode of these bonus shows – Love That Album: The Compilation Series.  These shows will concentrate on great compilations, be they movie soundtracks, stylistic compilations, artist box sets..whatever takes Eric’s fancy.

….and what a corker of a start.  First episode around he discusses the three brilliant albums under the name “Songs The Cramps Taught Us”. This is a great collection of rockabilly, rock and roll, surf…all the things that influenced The Cramps’ own recordings. This is a fascinating show. Please listen to these bonus shows and give Eric your support. I look forward to hearing more from him. The AIL segment for the main shows will continue.

The bonus episodes run off the same RSS Feed as the regular episodes.
