I don't know very much about this album, but I wanted to feature it here because I feel like I've never given it a fair shake. You see, when I would visit my dad and stepmom in Boston, I would occasionally want to listen to "You Can Call Me Al" from Graceland, but they didn't have that album. They HAD had it on vinyl, but I was seeking it in the mid- to late-90's when their vinyl was gone (It took up a LOT of space). What they did have, was a copy of this album on cassette. And so this album has always reminded me of disappointment and second-bestness. But from what I've heard, it sounds pretty fantastic. Maybe it is second best to Graceland, but that's still pretty great.
