Welcome, 2008 (belated)

Twas nice to be back in the studio last night after a longer than usual break from my Music is My Girlfriend duties. I had plenty of time to prepare and had a number of new songs to play as well as some favorite older tracks. No calls and no drop-ins equalled a quiet and peaceful radio show.

The Edgar Winter Group was the first selection of 2008 into the Bad Albums Covers collection. Their cover for 1972's "They Only Come Out At Night" is somewhat similar in repulsiveness to Herbie Mann's "Push Push," but Edgar decided to add a strange vampiric theme to the mix. His muttonchops are not to be missed either.
