I had a similar response when Black and Blue first came out , as a big Mick Taylor fan, but these days enjoy Hand of Fate, Memory Motel, Crazy Mama and yes even Fool to Cry. Some Girls was somewhat of a return to form , but Emotional Rescue was where I got off the bus.
i'm all about hand of fate and memory motel, in some kinda weird mix.
actually, now i SERIOUSLY wanna hear hatz's one and a half. mwhahaha.some girl
s is a strange thing with me. goat's
and it's only rock and roll
only managed to rise in my screwy estimation. some girls,
an album i loved on release, has only gone downnn. not sure why. but there it is.
i never once liked emotional rescue.
i mean, i would rate it higher than black and blue
, but only under duress. part of the prob: folk i totally love and respect and listen to.. whatever... love the actual title track. i try. the *track* "emotional rescue" makes me long for the days when i shattered my left wrist and drove my own ass to the ER. (just for the record, they shot me full of morphine, wheelin me out, and the only person who could be designated driver was my ma.. the very ma who was born in 29. so people, just as a notion of honor: picture my ma, driving me home, in a silver 77 firebird with red leather seats.
okay. sounds over the top. it isn't.
