Keene, Tommy

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Keene, Tommy - Based On Happy Times Based On Happy Times
Pop Used - LP GHS 24221 Geffen
Hard To Find 1989 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Sadly Under Appreciated On A Commercial Level (Maybe A Dozen Releases On At Least Ten Different Labels), Keene Has Spent A Career Crafting Supremely Catchy Pop Records That Lyrically Rise Above Much Of The Throwaway Fluff In The Genre And This Record Is No Exception. REM's Peter Buck Guests On A Pair Of Tracks. Recommended.... more details
 
Keene, Tommy - Run Now Run Now
Pop New - LP GHS 24128 Geffen
Sealed 1986 6 Track EP With Clean COH. “Containing The Song "Run Now," Produced By Bob Clearmountain, And Included In The Madonna Film Out Of Bounds, Four Of The Other Five Tracks Here Were Culled From The T-Bone Burnett And Don Dixon Sessions Cut In 1984 For The Original Version Of Songs From The Film. In Contrast To The Album Geffen Ended Up Releasing, The Burnett/Dixon Tracks Reveal An Effort To Capture The Subtle Nuances And Characteristics Of Keene's Unique Guitar Sound And Style. Thankfully, The Drum Sound In These Recordings Belies The Typical Bigger-Than-Life Studio Reverberation Found On Commercial Recordings Of The Day; Burnett And Dixon Opted To Keep The Foundation For These Tracks Simple And Nature. The Title Cut -- Produced By Bob Clearmountain -- Is Okay, But It Pales Next To Songs Like "They're In Their Own World" And "Back Again," Which Appeared In 1984 As A 12" Single. A Plus Is The Killer Live Version Of Lou Reed's "Kill Your Sons," Which Is Much Better Than The Studio Rendition Released On Songs From The Film.” - Jack Leaver, AMG... more details
 
Keene, Tommy - Ten Years After Ten Years After
Pop New - LP OLE 177-1 Matador
Sealed 1996 Original. Saw Cut. “The First Full-Length Album Since 1989's Based On Happy Times, Ten Years After Comes Closer To Capturing The Raw Energy Of A Tommy Keene Live Show Than Any Of His Previous Studio Recordings. Kicking Off With A Hard Guitar Assault In "Going Out Again," The Intensity And Emotion Is Sustained Throughout The Rest Of This Superb 12-Song Collection. Keene's Voice Has Never Sounded Better, And His Guitar Lines Are Fluid And Inspired. The Strength Of Lyric And Melody In Songs Such As "We Started Over Again" And "Turning On Blue" Assure That Keene's Songwriting Craft Is Still In Top Form. Ten Years After Contains A Memorable Hook At Every Turn, Whether It's In The Drive Of The Delicate Acoustic Guitar In The Folky "Silent Town" Or The Thunderous Eloquence Of "Your Heart Beats Alone." And Keene's Band Is Particularly Impressive; Bassist/ Vocalist Brad Quinn And Drummer John Richardson Rock Hard, Yet Still Provide The Right Rhythmic Footing For Each Of The Guitarists' Musical Detours -- For Example, The Country Flavoring Of "You Can't Wait For Time." A Must For Longtime Fans, As Well As Anyone Who Appreciates Intelligent And Well-Crafted Pop/Rock That Maintains A Sharp Edge.” Jack Leaver, AMG.... more details
