Crate Digger’s Gold: Lloyd Cole and the Commotions – Rattlesnakes

October 8, 2011

This is one of my favorite albums from the mid 8o’s.  I had the European CD edition.  I have no idea how I came across it.  The other day I found a US vinyl US edition (in great condition for a buck).  I was fascinated that it one had a different cover, but more importantly a few songs were remixed by Ric Ocasek ( the Cars). I guess the American label must have felt it some songs need to dust the British off. I honestly could barely tell the difference.

This was kind of folk new wave – a sort of British REM. Anyway I highly recommend the album.
