I do still wonder how almost all WoV fans are only fans of the Ridgway era. I mean "Far side of Crazy", "mona", "room with a view", "blackboard sky", "museums", Tragic Vaudeville", "hollywood the second time", "chains of luck", "country of man", "grass is greener", "ain't my day". These are masterpieces
Finally gave "Sammystown" and "Happy Planet" a listen after consciously ignoring them for so long (since the Ridgway albums are so divine), and they weren't too bad. I liked Sammystown for the most part, but Happy Planet didn't stick out so much save for a couple tracks here and there. I have yet to give the live album a listen.
saw the vid on eMpTy Vee back in the 80s. thought it was cool as a young 'un. moved to Bullhead City, Arizona... couple years later found out they recorded at least a chunk of the follow-up there. went back this spring for the first time in 20 years... "Call Of The West" truly hits home even moreso now, realizing I somehow miss a spec of a town in the middle of nowhere. loved the roadtrip through desert areas...
Big love for Wall of Voodoo...and they lead me to Stans solo work as well. Unfortunately, most of my stuff is on old school records which, while retro cool, is not so playable from the source. (And, yes, I have made audio file backups, but still....)
