In honor of last night's concert, one of Bob Seger's most popular songs which never hit the top 40, Turn The Page.
Tres cool. But did he do "2 + 2 Is On My Mind" one of his great songs from the psychedelic psyixties as The Bob Seger System.
I became aware of "2 + 2" on a 'KB "Champion/Challenger" weekend. Only heard it a couple times...and IIRC it was Berns playing it and worked into the backsell that the flip side was "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man".
It's been decades since I heard it...what a flashback.
Speaking of ABC-FM's syndicated "Brother Love"...on Jeff Roteman's KQV/Pittsburgh tribute site are a couple pages, complete w/jingles, devoted to the ABC Corporate "Love" format. http://www.14kqv.andmuchmore.com/
Jeff doesn't provide a link directly to the "Love" page, so when you get to the home page and enter the main KQV site thru the ITC Triple-Decker, (which I'm sure, JimPastrick, has played more than its share of grey Fidelipacs!), there's a site listing on the left, look for "KQV-FM - Love FM" and click to see ABC's promo print ad ("LOVE combines progressive rock music with honest, meaningful talk.") along with other artifacts, you can even hear jingles (for a progressive rock format?!).
It all lasted a year...and I completely missed it. I was a child of AM back then.
Annnnd now, we need a stiff...in 1984, Toto tried to repeat their lightning-in-a-bottle success of "Toto IV" with "Isolation", but to no avail. Leadoff single "Stragner In Town" was the album's biggest hit, peaking at #30.
Follow-up "Holyanna" (trying to repeat the success of "Rosanna"?!) didn't even do that well...and did you know in '87 they had an insipid little ballad called...wait for it... "Anna"?
Can you say "out of fresh ideas"? Or at least fresh songtitles.
