Georgia Satellites - In The Land Of Salvation And Sin In The Land Of Salvation And Sin
Pop Used - LP 60887 Elektra
1989 Original In Custom Inner Sleeve. Very Small Stain On Bottom Front Jacket. “In The Land Of Salvation And Sin Was An Attempt By Georgia Satellites' Songwriter And Frontman Dan Baird To Reinvent His Band While Not Changing The Formula Too Drastically. The Band's Third And Final Outing, It Followed The Disappointing Sales Of Open All Night With An Even Harder Approach That Kept Its Focus On American Roots Music. The Sound May Never Have Strayed Far From The Raucous, Garagey Style That Gave The Band Its Hit With 1986's "Keep Your Hands To Yourself," But It Also Took Deeper Consideration Of Pop Radio As Well, As Evidenced By The Power Ballad "It's All Over But The Crying." "Shake That Thing" Is A Tribute To Lowell George And Evokes The Late Songwriter's Sense Of Humor And, Of Course, Wrangling Slide Guitar, As Well As Little Feat's Funky Backbeat And Chorus Line Refrains. The Stomp And Drunken Roll Of "Six Years Gone" Sounds Like A Great Lost Faces Track — And As Evidence, "Another Chance" (Written By Baird) Emulates The Interplay Between Faces' Ronnie Lane's Songwriting Style And Ron Wood's Slide Guitar Playing On "Ooh La La," To The Degree He Includes A "Hats Off To Woody And Ronnie Lane" In The Songwriting Credits. The Platitudes Don't Stop There, Though; The Cover Of Joe South's "Games People Play" Is A Barnburning Slide Guitar Rocker Sung By Guitarist Rick Richards, And "Stellazine Blues" Emulates Both "Hand Of Fate" And "Undercover Of The Night" By The Rolling Stones. And As A Recording Of Tribute To Their Influences, This Record Works Like A Charm. Baird Is A Savvy Enough Songwriter To Do Anything He Wants, And That He Can Make Something New From Something Old Is To His Credit. In The Land Of Salvation And Sin Might Have Been A Strange Career Move And It Went Nowhere, But It Stands As The Band's Most Consistent And Innovative Recording.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details
 
Georgia Satellites - Open All Night Open All Night
Pop Used - LP 60793 Elektra
1988 Original In Custom Inner Sleeve. “Open All Night Had The Unwieldy Pressure Of Being The Follow-Up Album To A Surprise Hit. The Georgia Satellites' Self-Titled Offering, Issued In 1986, Yielded The Smash Single "Keep Your Hands To Yourself," Which Was Also An MTV Staple For Six Months. The Track And Its Accompanying Video Were Viewed As Novelties By Radio And MTV, So When Open All Night Appeared, The "Joke" Was Over. Too Bad. If Ever A Band Was Miscast As Class Clown, It Was These Guys. Songwriter And Frontman Dan Baird Wrote Another Slew Of Tough Rootsy Rockers That Evoked Everyone From Chuck Berry To AC/DC. Boogie, Biker Bluesy Rock, Faces-Style Garagey Rawness, And The Swagger Of The Rolling Stones Along With The Overdriven Razored Guitar Of Rick Richards Powered Baird's Songs. And The Man Could Write A Hook, As Evidenced By "Sheila," Which Sounds Like A Punk Del Shannon Backed By .38 Special At Their Best. The Cover Of "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" Takes The Jerry Lee Lewis Arrangement And Rips It Wide Open With A Honky Tonk Piano Shoved Into The '80s By Stomping Guitars. Likewise, The Satellites' Cover Of Ringo Starr's "Don't Pass Me By" Makes It A Bona Fide Saturday Night Barroom Country-Rock Number. Once Again, Though, It's Baird's Own Material That Separates Them From Their Peers — Not That There Were Many In The Mid-'80s. "Mon Cheri" Feels Like A Remake Of "Keep Your Hands To Yourself," But Its Storyline Is Amusing And The Guitar Crunch Is Irresistible. "Down Down" Is A Balls-Out Rocker With Open Ringing Riffs Like "Highway To Hell." The Set Closes With A Fine Rick Richards Tune Called "Hand To Mouth." It's True That He's Not Much Of A Singer, But He Can Write A Power Ballad And He Loves Ron Wood And Ronnie Lane. If This Recording Had Been Issued In Another Era, It Would Have Been Truly Appreciated For What It Was: A Solid And Punchy, Loud And Proud Rock & Roll Album.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details
