Chris and Tim will provide their commentary about songs that weren’t hits. Each episode examines just one studio album, and they’ll give you their top 3 non hits from that album. Chris has been a huge Rush fan for most of his life, and Tim could say the same about Phish. They’re both motivated to learn more about bands/artists by listening more closely to deeper cuts from albums they’ve either overlooked or are familiar with but dismissed for whatever reason. “This evolved from a music club ...

Yes, it's the first album with "Sultans of Swing". We felt this 1978 debut was a good transition from JJ Cale's Troubadour ('76), and before that Eric Clapton's 461 Ocean Boulevard ('74). The music is remarkable, beautiful and clever. So much that, given their Scottish Heritage, we had to weave in a lot of Groundskeeper Willie soundbytes just to ev…
 
This guy is a legend. He wrote Cocaine, After midnight, and a few others performed by famous 70's artists not named Eric Clapton. If you've never heard this album, you should. You can hear a little Clapton, Zeppelin, Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Buffet, Dire Straits, the list goes on. His musical depth is vast, and he plays with horn sections, harps, a…
 
What could be more fun than hanging out with Eric Clapton in Miami Beach, circa 1974? This is one of his best solo efforts of all time. It's the Album that has his "I Shot the Sheriff" remake that we all know. We didn't know how creative he was at bending notes and using the slide guitar before hearing some of the deep tracks. We also have moments …
 
Dusty Hill, bass player and Vocals for ZZTop is no longer with us, which is why we should pay tribute and give this gem of an album our full attention. They're THE quintessential Texas Rock/Blues band. After listening to this album, we almost had to re evaluate life priorities. Here's an example: You're in a time machine and you can go to one place…
 
We think the music in this episode is for two groups: The Die Hard Bob Dylan Fan and anyone going through a bad breakup or a divorce. For the rest, we tell an interesting human story. At 19, he leaves his hometown and moves to New York to be a songwriter. Nobody knows him when he first arrives and, after knocking on doors, he has a record deal six …
 
Sultry, sabers, seals, and so longs.....Chris and Tim get into the nuts and bolts of this OPUS of Mastery! We cover the background of Elton John and his band with lyricist rip roar into the ether of stardom and are received by fans on both sides of the pond. Rock, blues, reggae, orchestral....and more... the flowing sound and dynamic performance bl…
 
There isn't a bad song on this album and probably the toughest for us to name our top three non hits. Ian Anderson, the front-man, lead singer and Flute player for Jethro Tull, demonstrates his diverse talents and his endless supply of energy into Tulls biggest album, and one of Rocks best albums of all time, no joke. There are so many songs on thi…
 
Chris and Tim introduce "Murph", the Spicoli of Chris's high school back in day. Murph reminds children from the 80's about how this album was a staple on MTV. We're also reminded by how clever the lyrics were written and how they can be interpreted as love songs, rallying cries for unity, pleas to stop war among factions/nations/religions, and so …
 
Happy Birthday, Jerry! The Hippies are moving in.... and guess what? They are hard working! The lyrical prowess of Robert Hunter fused with the psychedelic folk musical composition from Jerry and the gang make for the Dead's most significant leap into superstardom, whether intended or not. The lyrical musings of Hunter allow the fans to toil in the…
 
Chris and Tim have a special mystery guest who joins them to celebrate one hell of an album about cars, girls, dreams, and life for the working man. "Darkness on the Edge of Town" gives us a window in time to see the bosses point of view and creative energy right after his magnum opus of Born to Run. You feel like you’re in Candys Room, or you’re d…
 
This is the 2nd of 5 Police Studio Albums written between the late '70's and early '80's. Their musical talent is undeniable. They fuse reggae with punk, jazz, rock and everything in between. They add in quirky lyrics and, on rare occasions, frantic melodies that are just too much. While the last song isn't really our cup of tea, the rest of the al…
 
How did we get here? Tim discovers the sound clip panel in this week's episode discussing a CLASSIC AMONG CLASSICS! X 1 million! This album opens the door for so much experimentation and further discovery sponsored by none other than Brian Eno himself. With the band coming off of Fear of Music (previous album), you see that the band infuses Nigeria…
 
As Meddle was the necessary stepping stone for Pink Floyd's making of The Dark Side of the Moon, Sheer Heart Attack was the necessary stepping stone for Queen's making of A Night at the Opera. We work in a Bob Felder/Queen Elizabeth reference, a Chris Farley Heart Attack reference, a heart attack fries reference from Curb your enthusiasm, and Mr. B…
 
In 1973, Stevie Wonder enters into his creative peak and leaves behind the boy genius, Little Stevie Wonder phase. Eugene Brown joins us as a Motown subject matter expert and owner of Eugeradio. He provides important context around the the tracks that reflect the changing times and social struggles of the day in what is arguably one of his best alb…
 
At the height of Disco's popularity in 1978, Marvin writes this album about his divorce to Anna Gaye, who is also Barry Gordy's oldest sister. It's a commercial failure and it's criticized for its "embryonic melodies", which we think is a nice way of saying the writing is lazy, too literal, unoriginal or unpoetic. However, there are tons of great n…
