A great version from the Frost.
5Hey Pocky Way
not a beat missed
1Just A Little Light
Pretty good musically, even if Brent forgets almost a whole verse!
1West L.A. Fadeaway
Very good version.
2Let The Good Times Roll
Great vocals on this, as usual.
2Playin' In The Band
Short but sweet, like many versions in the late 80s.
Overlooked GEM! Swift yet deeply felt. Jerry CRUSHES it.
1Not Fade Away
NFA as a Jerry tune? Yup, here it is! "But you drive me back -- huh!" Hell yes!
1Ship of Fools
Jerry modifies the intro and delivers a riveting solo later on.
