Music For Grown-Ups

My last trip before the lockdown was to Athens in early March. I was there for work but managed to sneak in a visit to my favourite record shop. I don't know the name, the sign outside is in Greek only, but I always find something interesting there.

This time round I picked up two Garland Jeffreys' albums from the early 1980s. "Guts for Love" (1982) has its moments but you wouldn't call it a career highlight. The 1981 live album "Rock & Roll Adult", on the other hand, is splendid from start to finish. Here's the evidence.

"35 Millimeter Dreams" - Garland Jeffreys

"Cool Down Boy" - Garland Jeffreys
