Want You Around (Baby Blue Vinyl)

(Featuring Dan Vapid And Rev. Norb, Leftovers)

Jolly Ronnie 6

Released on August 28, 2012

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Want You Around is the latest offering from rock/punk/pop savant KURT BAKER, and want it around you shall! Sashaying forth five-hundred-strong in an initial pressing on stunning baby blue vinyl, Want You Around features all the power, harmony, and friggin’ savoir faire one’s come to expect from this Maine-based tunesmith. Leading off with a title track dating back to Kurt’s days with the LEFTOVERS, Want You Around ((the record)) wastes little time in titillating the user’s privates with “Want You Around” ((the song)), a power pop epistle of the morse-code-guitars-and-harmonies tenor that sounds like it coulda been someone’s breakout FM hit in 1981, if God were thirty years younger and wore Converse All-Stars instead of sandals. An additional value-add comes in the form of guest vocals by Dan Vapid, who apparently wants you around as well. None can ask fairer than that! The platter is rounded out by lights-out covers of the new wave/power pop classic “News At Ten” by THE VAPORS, the slightly less-classic “Sleeping With The Television On” by BILLY JOEL, and the not-so-much-classic-as-epic “Hollywood” by THIN LIZZY. The digital download also includes the original demo version of “Want You Around” by the LEFTOVERS; the vinyl comes with the digital download AND a sticker AND a poster AND inter-song narration by the ever-nattering Rev. Nørb. Trust us: You’ll want this around!

Really great Pop inspired punk, More catchier than the Leftovers in a good way. Love it. Defiantly worth buying.
