Editorial Reviews

Even the musical wasteland that was the '80s did offer up a few beacons of hope, and LA power-poppers the Plimsouls were one of them. Granted, they're primarily known for one song, "A Million Miles Away," one of the decade's musical highlights, but they had a lot more good material up their sleeve. "Shaky City," the title track, and "Play the Breaks," also stand out, and the quality never dips below wonderful. Led by Peter Case, they coulda been contenders; certainly their wiry pop music was appealing enough. For one reason or another, it never happened. But time has finally caught up with them (and that perfect song), and the world is finally ready for the Plimsouls. --Chris Nickson

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY UNDERRATED POP GEM! December 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I ran across this album by chance one day when I borrowed my sister's car. She had the tape of this in the cassette player. It didn't take long before I was out on the road rocking out to this band that I had never heard of before. Then "A Million Miles Away" came on, and I was sold. I had to have this one. I don't usually discover great music this way, but sometimes even my little sister has a musical jewel or two hidden up her sleeve. This album is really a pop classic, which makes it that much more surprising I hadn't heard it before. But this band, who was huge on the west coast in the early 80's, disappeard just about as fast as they came in. That was the story of a lot of good pop bands I liked from the late 70's early 80's period. This was an especially talented band though. The bigtime production and the big guitar sounds off of this are something you didn't hear on very many pop albums back then. There's much more to be found here than just a one hit wonder album. There's some other great songs like "Oldest Story In The World", "Play The Breaks", "How Long Will It Take", and "Everywhere At Once" to round out a very solid album all the way through, with no weak filler tunes to be found. I'm surprised when I see this in the cut-out bins, and at such a bargain price. About all I can say about that is "if they only knew". I'd rank this one in my top 3 pop albums of the 80's, and if that shipwreck ever happens, I'd probably have to tote this along to the desert island. Because I've never gone long without listening to this cd since that first chance encounter in my sister's car. It's the best driving music you'll ever hear....Promise

This is one of the best power pop albums ever made, with great songs like "Oldest Story in the World", "Inch By Inch", and of course the classic "A Million Miles Away". A little history: in 1976 a band called the Nerves, made up of Peter Case (later of the Plimsouls), Paul Collins (later of the Beat, a.k.a. Paul Collins' Beat), and Jack Lee, recorded a 4 song EP. One of the songs was Jack Lee's "Hanging On The Telephone", which became famous in 1978 when a cover version by Blondie became a hit. By this time the Nerves had broken up, with the various members each gone their separate ways. Jack Lee released a solo album, "Greatest Hits Vol. 1", in 1981 on an obscure label, Maiden America records. Paul Collins' band, the Beat, made 2 albums and 1 EP. Peter Case's band, the Plimsouls, made an EP followed by 2 LPs, the best of which is this album, "Everywhere At Once". Both Case and Collins had subsequent solo albums, and the Plimsouls reformed for a later album in the late '90s, "Kool Trash". So there is a wealth of material for fans to track down for their collections. Much of it has never been issued on CD, and some of it is very hard to find. Now for the good news: in 2001 a Spanish label, Penniman Records, reissued the original Nerves 4-song EP, combined with 2 other Nerves studio tracks, on a 10" vinyl-only collection called "25th Anniversary". Only 2000 copies were issued, I don't know if it is still available but if you can find it, I highly recommend it - great stuff. There was also a French reissue in the late '80s, now long since out of print, of the same 6 Nerves songs, plus 4 more live tracks. Anyway, I had been searching for those Nerves songs for years before finally finding the Penniman Records release just a few weeks ago. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time Top 10 October 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If I were stranded on a desert island and yadda, yadda, yadda... Everywhere At Once would definetly be on my short list of MUST HAVES. My brother bought this on cassette back in the mid 80's and made a fan out of me. Finally, a few years back I picked it up on CD... and it's still a regular in my rotation. It's a great sunny day driving album, from Oldest Story In The World to How Long Will It Take to the title track. And, of course, A Million Miles Away is one of the greatest almost-hits of all time. It's too bad The Plimsouls never reached the star status they deserved, but it's also kind of nice to have one of those hidden gems no one else seems to know about. So now you're in on the secret. Buy this CD. I bet you won't be sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunningly great power pop album February 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Plimsouls second album was very nearly as great as the first. Not since Big Star cranked out #1 RECORD and RADIO CITY a decade earlier had American pop seen music that was so edgy and melodic at the same time. The prime mover behind The Plimsouls was the great songwriter/guitarist/singer Peter Case. He enjoyed a find solo career after leaving The Plimsouls, but he never wrote as many spectacular songs as he did for their two albums together.
I'd love to share my favorite cuts on the album, but I would simply end up reduplicating the contents. But the best of the best stand comparison with any of the great power pop singles of the entire decade, or indeed of any decade. While I have some personal favorites like "The Oldest Story in the World," I would like to see anyone who isn't moved by the power of a song like the title track or the amazing "A Million Miles Away," which just might be the Plimsouls single greatest song. But there aren't any weak cuts on this album. Every song is distinguished by good lyrics, taut playing, stellar guitar lines (though very little in the way of solos-the guitar work consisted primarily in countering the vocal melodies and in brilliant texturing), and superb melodies that will hook you and keep you hooked.
Over the course of time, I have encountered one amazing band after another-Big Star above all, but also bands like Thin White Rope, Eleventh Dream Day, the Rave Ups-that should have been huge, but weren't. I hate to turn this into a diatribe against the music industry, but with downloading and file sharing threatening the existence of the record companies, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be a good thing if they went by the board.
