Lets Go Bowling - Stay Tuned (CD, Album)
But to put aside the negatitives, there are some good songs on the track, Saving Sorries, Electric Bread, and The Middle Although there new sound is different to get used to, it is a must for any LGB fan. These once kings of ska are still the best, even though they have decided to go in a new direction. Over all an ok CD with some good songs. Album), their best relase to date.
One person found this helpful. Hailing from my hometown of Fresno, CA, Let's Go Bowling was one of the first ska bands I was exposed to in the early nineties, and have remained a sentimental favorite of mine.
I bought this album expecting an evolution of the same band that produced "Music to Bowl By" and "Mr. Twist," but was shocked and sadly disappointed to discover their sound had drifted VERY far away from their roots. Maybe I was expecting too much, but if you are looking Album) good Third Wave ska with a First Wave mentality, steer clear of this album.
These guys are just great. Their lyrics are sarcastic, amusing, and clever. Their music is different -- every track is a new sound. Some bands have only one sound, but LGB has tons of tricks up their sleeves. Sampling from all sorts of sources, combined with talented synthesizer, horns, drums, and electric guitar makes for a sound that makes you just want to turn your radio up.
This CD was weak The only two good songs were the instrumental songs. They only shadow the sound that they used to have. I'm a ska fan and I wouldn't consider this a ska record Its too difficult to explain. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries.
Verified Purchase. Awesome album. Report abuse. Back to top. Along with the Toasters, Let's Go Bowling was then dubbed, on national television, one of the flagship bands of the genre. The energy at Album) shows, from the audience and the band itself, was at Album) all-time high. The band was touring the US as a headliner, whose national prominence had given them greater control over their live shows and opening acts.
Let's Go Bowling was the original West Coast ska band, and enjoyed the laurels bestowed upon them by these bands, who had cited Let's Go Bowling as an influence in interviews, and also in record releases No Doubt thanked LGB in the liner notes of "Tragic Kingdom".
It was at this time, that the Ska explosion had opened the door for the Swing Scene, which included the Daddies, who recruited M. This captured the band at its most innovative, with the band performing freely, and capturing golden moments of interaction between the band, and its beloved scene.
It is at this time that the band started to become more free form, and detached with the rigidness of its structure, and would routinely stretch out its Skatalite covers into 15 minute episodic affairs. Rey's solos over "Man In The Street" and "The Reburial of Marcus Garvey" were highly innovative in its use of delay to create a ricochet of brass, inspired by Dub music. These solos would extend, and lend themselves to Gilbert Lopez's Tenor Saxophone innuendoes, forming huge, parallel, harmonic ideas, completely improvised, and helped break down the barriers of what could be done within a previously stale, formulatic ska medium.
The album also contains a composition by 20 year old M. Rey DeLeon, entitled "Sock Monkey March", a blistering and ominous march, intended to be a send up of old Esquivel compositions, and an ode to their then manager, Richard "Cord" Burk, who some say resembles a sock monkey in flight. In AugustLincoln Barr left the band to pursue other efforts closer to home. Starting in Januaryafter three years of constant and successful touring across America, Let's Go Bowling took a year off the road to record a studio album for its new label Liberation Records.
Under imminent pressure to release a follow up to "Mr Twist" and amidst the great success of their "ska" contemporaries, the band recruited music producer Stoker and, for the first time, turned the artistic reins over to a music pro looking for the commercial success that had eluded the band.
Not to forget Darren Fletcher's classic "Bone Dry", which is considered one of the best tunes the band has ever recorded. But due to polar artistic choices and divergent influences, "Stay Tuned" was far different than the previous two studio efforts, confusing many at the time, and within that confusion, Stay Tuned was released in spring of The album was met with mixed reviews, and faced harsh criticism from their original "True Tone" fan base.
