5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds Great 20 Years Later ..., December 14, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stands for DeciBels / Repercussion (Audio CD)
The 2nd album has been one of my favorites since it was released in the early 80s. Great quirky pop music. The two primary songwriters are Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple. They tend to compliment each other in a Lennon/McCartney or Difford/Tillbrook sort of way.
If you like this, there are other CDs by the dB's and later work by Holsapple and Stamey that you should check out:
1. Like This - dB's after Stamey left - hard to find on CD. While I miss Stamey, this still pretty good.
2. Sound of Music - again, post-Stamey and again, hard to find on CD. I like it a little better than Like This - there is a little more richness in the songwrtiing.
3. Ride the Wild Tom Tom - full band, this is their earliest material. There are some throwaways, but most of it is very solid - great Stamey/Holsapple tunes you can't find elsewhere.
4. Fireworks and It's Alright - two post-dB's Stamey solo albums. I prefer the first one, which is a little more introspective, but both are excellent.
5. Sneakers - Racket - very hard to find, this is a pre-Wild Tom Tom CD with Stamey and Mitch Easter. Sounds like ... the dB's and Let's Active ... very cool. Includes an early dB's song or two. Similar in feel to the Tom Tom CD.
6. Mavericks - post-dB's reunion of Stamey and Holsapple. A little less poppy than the dB's, but great stuff.
All this stuff is out-of-print, but you can find it over time on ebay, Gemm or your local used record store. Great band - enjoy!
