I didn't know Brownsville Station had followed up "Smokin' in the Boys Room" - I thought they were a OHW.

A bit long in the intro, no?

wow, I'm in a sugar coma with ABBA's Honey Honey.  Not their best, kinda blah for me.  But what a formula they hit on!
I see you've been visiting the Worst Album Covers site!
Your'e no fun!  That cover is great!
(Hey, someone wanna give Mike a wake-up call?  He's missing all the fun.)
But that Swede LP cover and Tinka's avatar are from the Worst Album Covers website!  Yes, hit Mike with a joy-buzzer wake-up alarm in time for the Steppenwolf track!

so the raspberries' aroma-enhanced sticker affixed to the album cover caused a woman to faint?  Makes you wonder what kinds of toxic chemicals they used back then to create that smell....     :-\

OMGWTFLOL: Jim Weatherly fulfills the need to be at #28.

(I really dug that Steppenwolf song!  Honkin' sax!)

I only know the Weatherly b/c it's on the Buddah Box.  (I probably had more fun writing that review than any other I did for AMG.)

That is indeed my real name.  I used to write for AMG pretty regularly, but barely in the past two years.  I haven't made the time to seek out stuff I know that's still unreviewed (not a lot of incentive as I've moved away from rock journalism and AMG pays poorly).

PS: BOS to Bobby Vinton - Pittsburgh pride!  We heard a lot of polkas at my grandmother's growing up.

Ladies and gentlemen ... the L-O-N-G version!  (I hadn't known "Beach Baby" was a fall hit.)

You can take the nice Polish boy out of the Nation's steel belt, but you can't take the polka out of him!

Polka is forever.
