    I reordered the 1991 "Walsh" cd to match the original track list, before they excised The Lady Is A Tramp. Man.... it's a different record!!

    Actually, to be more precise, the edge or bite of the album is more pronounced with this running order and the record becomes a lot bluer. Bluesier.

    This is one of my favorite albums of all time (maybe THE most favorite) and I always loved that exciting, out-on-the-town "bite" it has. But it was never full-on bitter or bluesy. There were undertones of that, but it was just one of its many shades, that lay deep down in the grooves. Now, in this order, I feel like that story is more forward. More in the spotlight.

    I'm surprised A) that I've never done this before, and B) how much it changed the show and made some of my best musical pals sound completely different. I'm not saying it's better, this is one of my all-time favorite albums mind you -- but this is cool. It's like discovering you're wife is really a blond. Or maybe not. I don't know!

    Quoted for truth, laughing my head off. Norberg NR turkey being compared to Night Train/MD 20/20/Thunderbird the SHF forum quotable of the week. Truer words have never been spoken.

    I slammed this together as a playlist way back when I first figured it out when I posted the photo. You are right, it is a completely different feel
