ROUND 1 - Elgin Avenue Breakdown Revisited: The Studio Tracks, Pt. 1

Post by Flex » 24 Jun 2019, 11:42am

None of the vinyl pressings Elgen Avenue Breakdown include the full tracklisting of the CD version of Elgin Avenue Breakdown - Revisted so I'm going to divide this record into three parts: Studio Tracks Part 1, Studio Tracks Part 2, and the Live Tracks. We'll vote on Studio Tracks Part 1 and then Studio Tracks Part 2, and then have a three-way standoff between all three heats.

Silent Telephone never really did much for me.

Whay are people voting for Rabies? Ok, a few questionable lyrics but a great tune with a superb guitar solo.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I know the lyrics are a bit un-PC but some of the lines are hilarious...

Spend your life in quarantine
But sooner or later...you'll bump into Jean
And she'll give you those rabies from Venus
We'll all have that love disease between us

Rabies is great. This board continues to baffle me.
