Smithereens – Green Thoughts

a link from peter at c-60 Low Noise

Smithereens – Green Thoughts

The Smithereens were responsible for some of the most lyrically rich and stirring music that emerged from the 80's. I recommend this CD for any forty something year old that wants to take a trip back to College.

The Smithereens: Pat DiNizio (vocals, guitar); Jim Babjak (guitar, vocals); Mike Mesaros (bass, vocals); Dennis Diken (drums, vocals).

Additional personnel: Del Shannon, Marti Jones (vocals); Don Dixon (guitar, piano, vocals); Steve Berlin (saxophone); Kenny Margolis (piano, harpsichord, accordion).

Recorded at Capitol Tower, Studio B, Hollywood.

Marked as a bar band or Britrock-inspired American college band, The Smithereens released GREEN THOUGHTS in 1988 to some critical respect. In 2003 this album was remastered and reissued with Lemon Recordings.

Ahhh, "Green Thoughts" by the Smithereens. Back then all I had was a cassette tape walkman and my bicycle...

Thank you for taking me back to the north side of Chicago in the late 80s, specifically along that stretch of Sheridan Avenue that runs through Loyola University.
