A lovely soul has contributed to my Girl problem...and now I own several of the albums in a digital format -- the quest for vinyl continues!
To celebrate this massive gift, I hereby declare this "Girl Week." Starting today and through Friday, I'll review the various Girl albums and talk about legendary performances and perhaps even venture into post-Girl spinoffs like Man Raze, Sheer Greed, L.A. Guns, and Def Leppard.
Albums that will be reviewed include Sheer Greed, Wasted Youth, Killing Time, and Live at the Marquee.
Not surprising, there are several good Girl clips on YouTube. Many are taken from the BBC program The Old Grey Whistle Test.
Let's kick off our week with some of these videos. Here's Girl performing "Take Me Dancing."
Now, Girl performing "Strawberries." While I was listening to this clip last night, Eric remarked that is sounded just like L.A. Guns. True, Phil Lewis' voice is incredibly unique and definitely a major part of the charm that is Girl.
Our final video on this Monday, a clip of "Do Ya Love Me."
Tomorrow, I'll review Sheer Greed.
