Random Shuffle

30 years later, still memorable…

For some reason, this album has been on my mind lately. I remember the second half being particularly strong. (from Gear Jammin’ Hero to Black Death on a White Horse.)

I suppose the provocative band name is what made me pull the cassette off the shelf. It was probably one of the last pre-recorded cassettes I ever bought. By that time, most of my music was on CD. Of course, I can’t find it streaming anywhere now. Thank god for Discogs.

This is a great example of how great packaging can stop you in your tracks, and a better example of how what’s inside should surpass what’s on the outside.
