Quick Artist Appreciation

The Feelies
South Jersey, 1976-1992, reunited in 2008.

Debut: Crazy Rhythms, 1980 (Allmusic Five Stars, Fortnightly ****1/2, Village Voice: Best Album of 1980, Rolling Stone: #49 Best Album of the 80's, Pitchfork: #69 Best Album of the 80's.)

My Favorite of their albums: Only Life, 1988; features their best songs (Higher Ground, Deep Fascination, Away, The Undertow). Like early REM sounds better on Vinyl.

As far as I know none of their albums are in print.

Crazy Rhythms

Deep Fascination, From Only Life
