54-40 – Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret (replacement)
The Taranna Was Hot Series: Part 23/25 (3-for-$10 bin, BMV)
I’ve already written about this record a couple of years ago, but my copy got hacked up (long story) so I was happy to find another one to replace it. This record is a total classic, full of 54-40’s inimitable, trademark rock pop genius. I still get one hell of a lift out of Ocean Pearl. Blame Your Parents, Radio Luv Song, Assoholic… and all the other songs that should have been hits. It’s crazy good. You need this album!
