About this Episode

Palace Live
a side: "For the Mekons, et al"
b side: "Stable Will"
Palace Records PR13 1996

Neil Diamond
a side: "Forever in Blue Jeans"
b side: "Remember Me"
Columbia Records 3-10897 1978
Peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Ugh, that B-side soo 70s adult contemporary (ಠ_ಠ)

God Is My Co-Pilot
a side: "4 Steps Down the Road to Trouble"/"I Pulled Up to Park"
b side: "Iko"/"Better Get In Your Soul"
The Making of Americans 1991
Whoops! Forgot to mention this excellent single in the mic break. Fun fact: Every copy of this single is 1 of 500.

The Sweet
a side: "Fox on the Run"
b side: "Burn on the Flame"
Capitol Records 4157 1975
Now this is how you incorporate synths into a song, unlike say... "Forever in Blue Jeans". Fun fact: The Scorpions covered this song?! (and "Action" too?!) Also the more recent version by The Regrettes is pretty rad too.

Edgar Winter Group
a side: "Free Ride"
b side: "When It Comes"
Epic Records 5-111025
Sounding a little like Dr. Teeth on the b-side. 1972

The J Geils Band
a side: "Freezeframe"
b side: "Flamethrower"
EMI America B-8108 1981
Funk-y b-side!

Lipps, Inc.
a side: "Funkyotwn"
b side: "All Night Dancing"
Casablanca Records NB 2233 1979
Kind of a weird feel on the b-side. I'm supposed to dance all night to that?

Wayne Fontana & the Mindbenders
a side: "Game of Love"
b side: "Since You've Been Gone"
Fontana Records F-1503
A little on the hetero-normative side, but pretty catch. And the b-side is even catchier!
