Here we go again....new site, more stuff for me to throw your way!
For this week it's going to be 1984's "Akimbo Alogo" from Kim Mitchell.
To be perfectly honest, I had never heard of tis guy before seeing the "Go For Soda" video so, as I always seem to do, I trekked over to the music store and picked up this album, all for that one song. That's the correct way to buy music that you've no real clue about.
I got sucked in to Kim Mitchell after listening to this album and found tht he was in a band I hd also never heard of before, Max Webster. Maybe because they weren't known that well in the US, or maybe I led a sheltered life and was late to the party. Whatever, I learned who Max Webster and Kim Mitchell were and that was that.
So we've got some hard rock, funk and melow stuff on this album. To me, a nice summer album, something to crank up when you've cruising around or sitting on your back porch wondering why your neighbors never invite you to their parties. I mean, you're a pretty cool guy, right? Why the constant snubs?
