There was a time when the purchase of a new album resulted in yours truly spending an insane amount of time locked into his bedroom, pouring over liner notes while rattling the walls with that most recent vinyl object of my affection. It’s records like this one that remind me of those days. Anderson plays straight ahead rock and roll that deserves to be played loud and proud. Anderson has a long list of instrumental and vocal credits on his resume, my favorite being the work he did on Dan Baird’s Love Songs For The Hearing Impaired — anybody remember “I Love You Period”? That was Anderson.

Besides, I just can’t resist a band called the Olympic Ass-Kickin Team.
