Just A Question. Maybe 2.

Posted by Al Pastor

Is the Jenny Lewis album, Rabbit Fur Coat, the last album I am ever going to love? I read something interesting from "Miami""Little Steven""Silvio" Van Zandt (no relation). He says we are back in this sort of pre-Beatles (pre-Dylan/Stones is more accurate, but your Gambling Poet takes the point) pop environment, as opposed to the "rock" environment that prevailed during the so-called album era. That right there is a lot of parentheses and quotation marks.

Here is another question: could Sinatra have God whacked? And who has more Jersey juice, today, post-Sopranos "Miami" Steve or reborn lefty/folkie Bruce Springsteen?

No disrespect to Van Zandt, but I think Springsteen has always had (and will always have) more Jersey juice than Steve Van Zandt. The exception might have been while recording the horns for "Tenth Ave. Freeze-Out." Watch the documentary that comes with the 30th-anniversary re-release of Born To Run to see what I mean.

Check the refrigerator aisle at the WaWa. You can find it right next to the Yeungling Black & Tan. Once I went into a beer store in Central Pennsylvania and aske for a case of "Eu-ing-ling." The woman at the counter replied "New England?" So I treid again: "You Eng Leng", at which she looked confused until I said "You Eng Leng Balck & Tan." At which she said "You mean Yinglin?" Which, of course, I did.
