Love Beach

If you're not familiar with the album mentioned in the video, just believe me that it is really bad. I could encourage you to look it up on iTunes and check it out for yourself, but I know you have better things to do with your time. I'm absolutely certain you have better things to do with your time.

I was actually a big ELP fan back in the day, until they released Love Beach. It seemed like a betrayal of their fans. I was baffled by how these guys could put out such dreck. Then I noticed they recorded the album in Jamaica. There you go. I'm sure they spent the day on the beach sipping rum drinks with topless groupies before stumbling into the studio in the evening after stuffing themselves on jerk chicken. That's how you lose your edge, my friend.

Unless you're in a reggae band, you shouldn't record in Jamaica. For that matter, you shouldn't record anywhere where you'd rather be outside than in the studio. Maybe that's why so much good music came out of Abbey Road Studios.

Hey Deadpan me choose a tag line by responding to the poll in the right-side column. It just takes two little clicks. The poll ends Monday evening. Thanks.
