I sent the funny Pink Floyd post to my young gay neighbors who have a giant stain glass of the classic Storm Thorgerson cover art in their front window.

They had no idea it was an album cover; you guessed it, they bought it for the rainbow.

Lol

The 3 LP deluxe KISS Creatures of the Night was also in the box of nonsense.
Triple gatefold.
Great booklet included.
The Vinyl ended up being dark blue semi transparent.

Nice. I have not bought any KISS vinyl in 10 years (have given them enough $ throughout the years), but I may have to pick this one up with those demos - can't believe they put KILLER tracks on this album.

A tiny record shop just opened up nearby and I snagged this for $6. Been listening to it for many years but this is the first time on vinyl. Great timing with the anniversary.

I just finished spinning my old well-worn copy. Did the album you snagged still have the posters?

A birthday present to myself. I picked up an old Thorens with a String Theory Woody tonearm and 80lb slate plinth.
I needed a new toy to play with.

Crazy that the last couple of posts are about The Dark Side of the Moon. I actually just bought a copy (2016 reissue) earlier today. I had a Target gift card, so it wound up costing me a whopping $0.17.

Some other records I've picked up over the last couple of weeks:

Oingo Boingo - Dead Man's Party (2018 Lmt Ed orange vinyl)
John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies - Halloween Ends OST (Ltd Ed red version)
Van Halen - S/T (2020)
Bell Biv Devoe - Poison (original)
Nirvana - In Utero (original)
Beastie Boys - B-Boys in the Cut (Remixes) (12" Lmt Ed orange vinyl)
Led Zeppelin - II (2020)
Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti (2015)
Portishead - Dummy (2017)
Offspring - Smash (2021)

HSAS Through the Fire, Japan press still in shrink.
Neil Shron finally gets to rock out, Sammy is in Top form, its unfortunate that they only recorded this one album.

Do you shop at The In Groove? I watch all of Mike's YouTube videos.
He buys tons of great collections, so the store is always stocked with gems.
Pricey though....

Found a new spot today, Purchase St Records in New Bedford, MA. Prices were on the higher side, but the selection was amazing if you are into metal/hard rock. My kids saw a Judas Priest 45 and asked if Rob Halford was Walter White. I wish I took a pic, it looked just like him. If you weren't into local (MA) hardcore in the 90's you probably have no idea who Slapshot is, great album.

People never give Pat Travers enough credit for having his only hit song about beating his ex-girlfriend into unconsciousness.

BOOM BOOM OUT GO THE LIGHTS
No kiddin'
I'm ready to fight
I been lookin' for my baby all night
I get her in my sights
Boom boom, out go the lights

No kiddin'
I'm ready to go
If I find her, boy don't you know
I get her in my sights
Boom boom, out go the lights

Ooh yea
Well I thought I treated my baby fair
I just found out she don't want me here
If I get her in my sights
Boom boom, out go the lights

Oh yeah, play the guitar boy

I never felt this mad before
I just found out she don't want me no more
If I get her in my sights
Boom boom, out go the lights
That's right

Thanks, I had no idea. I always assumed that he was speaking of knockin boots, not bashin heads.

#9879 1 year ago

the song boom boom is older than traverse, the traverse band played a lot of cover music and radio stations liked his live album and this song, but likely not for its lyrics they just liked the start stop and crowd participation the things that made a concert more memorable another artist created this song and he is inducted into the rock & roll hall of fame little walter

#9880 1 year ago

this was traverse biggest hit crash and burn and also snortn whiskey and drinking cocaine was his I don't think they wrote many original songs, but they have their own sound

#9881 1 year ago

Songfacts®:
Studio and live versions of "Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights)" were recorded by Pat Travers, both uptempo with some fine axework, and, one might think, this was a happy sort of song. In fact it has a somewhat dark origin. Written by harmonica player Stan Lewis, it was recorded by another harmonica player, Little Walter, on Chess Records in 1957. Little Walter (real name Marion Walter Jacobs, 1930-'68) was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2008.

Listening to the song with a bit of nous reveals that it is actually about a taboo subject: spousal abuse. The boom is the punch, and out go the young lady's lights. Oops! >>
Pat Travers, a Canadian guitar slinger, first released this song on his debut album in 1976, replacing Little Walter's harmonica-heavy arrangement with guitar and piano. It became a favorite in his live repertoire as Travers would summon up a call-and-response, with the crowd answering "Out go the lights!" after his "Boom boom."

He released a 5-minute-long live recording (two minutes longer than the studio version) on his 1979 album Live! Go for What You Know in 1979, where he distances himself from the lyric by introducing it as a "party song." This version got some airplay on Rock radio and survived as a deep cut years later on some Classic Rock stations.

This could be an interesting debate. I've sang dozens if not hundreds of different cover songs for anything from large venues and high end weddings to backyard parties over the last 30 years. I know the lyrics, but just as a string of words. I couldn't tell you what most of the songs are about, because half the time I don't even like the song, or just don't care. I could see a fun cover that turned into a hit without knowing what the song was about. Granted, this wouldn't fly today because people are much more in tune to this sort of thing, but the 70's? Are we as artists and listeners not able to interpret the song how it talks to us as an individual? Sure, there is a limit, and this probably crosses it. There are songs I performed 15 years ago that I wouldn't touch today.

I saw Pat Travers a few years ago and he was still doing this song.

If he wanted, he could change the lyrics with about 10 minutes of songwriting and make it about a boxing match, punching nazis, or just about anything other than beating women unconscious.

No government actions force smart bands to change lame lyrics, they just do it because they realize they'd look like idiots otherwise.
