Can anything be this freakin' good, and yet practically unknown? This whole album just makes me smile.
Those opening chords on "Waiting for the Sun" pull me in every time.
I wouldn't say practically unknown...that album (CD) sold over 400,000 copies worldwide.
They should have been so much more than a Musician's Band. The songs themselves are top-notch and incredibly hooky, these guys should be in the public consciousness as much as R.E.M. ever was.And made tons of Best Of lists.
And they are a Musician's Band.
So yeah, pretty well known. Especially if you lived in MPLS at the time.
It's interesting because Louris was pretty old when they first hit--like almost 40 if memory serves. Wait, so he's like 60 now? What?
Googled it--57 now!
