:: What Is This Thing Called Love ::
:: Footprints On The Dashboard ::
:: Blackeyed Suzy ::
Don't even bother to download the mp3s this time. This one's all about the cover "art". Look at it. Drink it in. Cherish it. As Peggy Lee once asked, "Is That All There Is?", and the answer is yes. If Joe Mondo were a hilariously shitty guitar player, or if his singing voice was not so good, then the music might be a little more interesting. But as it is, he's not too bad, and that sucks. It goes in one ear and out the other. If he looks like a guy you might find hanging out by the beach, playing these songs with his open guitar case lying on the ground nearby inviting passersby to throw a dollar into it, that's probably exactly who he is, or was.
Oh well, go ahead and listen to this shit if you must. I included "What Is This Thing Called Love" because it's the one song on the album credited to Mr. Mondo himself. For some reason none of the songs on side 2 have any songwritting credits. I imagine someone must have written "Footprints On The Dashboard", but I can understand why they wouldn't want to admit it. "Blackeyed Suzy" ain't that bad, and is mercifully short. Of course Joe can't help getting into the sexually suggestive lyrics. He knows what the ladies like.
Thanks to our buddy Trags for sending this one my way. I will be forever in his debt. Go Joe.
