Love That Album episode 61 - Richard and Linda Thompson "Shoot out The Lights"

What do Lamb of God, REM, Weddings Parties Anything, Neko Case, Gerry Rafferty and Iron Maiden have to do with Richard and Linda Thompson and their 1982 masterpiece “Shoot Out The Lights”? Some of the links are actually very tenuous, but they’re brought up nevertheless in episode 61 of Love That Album, which is devoted to discussing said masterpiece. I am joined by the Knife Licker himself, Mr John Ross co-host of the wonderful Feed My Ears podcast to talk about just happy subjects as infidelity, death, marriage woes, and amusement park rides. Join us!!! We had a lot to talk about including the back story behind the recording of the record.

Eric Reanimator is back on board for his Album I Love segment to talk some more excellent Swedish rock. This time he brings us some Hellacopters action with their EP Strike Like Lightning.

Love That Album Bonus Episode – The Compilation Series Ep:3 - A Fistful of Country

Eric Reanimator presents episode number 3 in the Love That Album Compilation Album series of podcasts. Once again, Eric truly sets a high benchmark for informative music discussion.

First up, Eric discusses Volume 3 of the Columbia Country Classics set. This set is heavy on telling stories – something country music does so well and features tunes from the likes of Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins.

Then, he talks about the first volume of a high energy punk / garage series of albums called A Fistful of Rock and Roll with songs from groups like The Bell Rays, El Diablo, and Rocket City Riot

Once again, Eric takes you on a fascinating journey through two very stylistically different compilations. Tune into what he has to say.
