John Otway - Deep Thought. Nobody liked my Otway posts yesterday. That means I have to post another one. There is not enough Otway on Tumblr. This record is still in the (opened) shrink wrap with price tag from Pittsburgh’s legendary Jerry’s Records.
From Urgh! A Music War. Proof that sheer enthusiasm can be very exciting regardless of talent (or the lack thereof).
John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett - Deep & Meaningless. Contains a song with one of my favorite titles of all time: Beware Of The Flowers (‘Cos I’m Sure They’re Going To Get You Yeah). Otway always manages to make me smile.
