Classic Rock Orgy II

1 Reply

We return with the second half of our end-of-summer AOR celebration. These are artists the mainstream swears by but generally doesn’t dig much deeper than their best known singles. It’s a pity that familiarity has such a grip on programmers because there’s so damn much great music inside the often vast catalogues of these establishment acts.

In round two we give ya double shots from The Kinks and Macca, a Dr. John tune from 1968 that’s eerily prescient for today’s social climate, more AC/DC and Thin Lizzy because it’s good for you, something besides Garden Party from Rick Nelson’s under-appreciated early 70s final hurrah, and we conclude with a song cool enough for Pavement to cover but not for FM radio to slot in. As always, we hope you dig the archival spelunking we’ve done and hope you pass this along to anyone you think might appreciate it and the Impound in general. Thanks, y’all!

If you experience playback problems, pop over to the 8tracks mix page and it should play fine.
