All Hopped Up
New - LP - 3029
1980's Reissue. Unable To Confirm Exact Label/Press Variant. "Nrbq's Fourth Album (And First With Drummer Tom Ardolino, Solidifying A Lineup That Would Last For Close To 20 Years) Plays Down The Band's Goofier Tendencies In Favor Of A Set That Shows Off Their Considerable Chops As Both Players And Songwriters. The More Introspective Side Of The Band's Jazz Leanings Come To The Forefront On "Doctor's Wind" And "Queen Talk"; Terry Adams Contributes A Strong, Vaguely Beatlesque Tune Called "It Feels Good" And The Lovely "Things To You," Joey Spampinato Turns In A Pair Of Subtle Pop Gems, "That's Alright" And "Still In School"; And Can Anyone Explain Why Al Anderson's Wonderful And Engagingly Heart-tugging "Riding In My Car" Wasn't A Hit Single? All Hopped Up Also Features A Handful Of Stellar Covers, Including A Jumped-up Take On "I Got A Rocket In My Pocket" (Adams' Barrelhouse Piano Truly Shines), A Swinging Version Of "Cecilia," And A Rollicking Ride Through Big Joe Turner's "Honey Hush," And The Band's Loosely Tight Communication Is A Fine Thing To Hear On All Cuts. And Even The Album's Token Weird One From Adams, "Call Him Off, Rogers" Could Pass For A Serious Pop Tune If You Didn't Pay Too Much Attention To The Lyrics (About A Dog With Designs On Adams' Arm). Just In Case You Thought Nrbq Had Gotten All Normal On Us, Though, The Album Closes With The Most Extraordinary Version Of The Theme From "Bonanza" You Will Ever Hear. It's Hard To Say Why Anyone Would Want An Entirely Serious Album From Nrbq, But All Hopped Up Is Closer Than Most, And Proves Their Charm And Their Talent Is What Makes Them Great, Not Their Idiosyncratic Sense Of Humor."

Atsa My Band
Used - LP - LP 5162
Hard To Find 2002 Limited Edition 180gm Stereo Pressing From Sundazed. Hype Sticker On Shrink. "Nrbq Makes Its Studio Debut On Its Own Record Label With A Set Of Infectious, At Times Giddy, Originals And Covers. Sue Thompson's "Norman" Gets Transgendered Treatment As "Norma" With A Raved-up Dixieland Polka Feel. "Kingston Town" Retains Its Commercial Calypso Groove, But Drummer Tom Ardolino Overlays Some Square Dancing Calls For The Lyrics. And The Bubblegum Trifle "Beautiful Sunday" (Originally By Daniel Boone) Is Treated Lovingly Without Being Either Overblown Or Pricked By Satire. "Wand'rin Star," By Those Riders From The Upper West Side, Lerner And Loewe, Gets A Clip-clop Cowboy Ballad Setting. Keyboardist And Musical Wit Terry Adams Contributes Some Off-beat Drollery -- The Faux Cop-show Theme "21-50 To Headquarters" And "Terry Got A Muffin," Which Sounds Like It Would Fit On Nrbq's Album For Kids. Still, This Track -- As Well As The Cover Of "Rip It Up" And Joey Spampinato's "You Are The One" -- Rocks, Thanks, In Large Part, To Ardolino's Relentless Beat. Spampinato Also Provides A Couple First Class Rock Ballads: "Come Softly To Me," With Jangling Beatlesque Overtones, And "Goodbye." On These And The Closer "See You Soon," The Band Really Wears Its Collective Heart On Its Sleeve, Fitting For A Musical Valentine To Tuneful And Loopy Pop." AMG - David Dupont. more
Christmas Wish
Used - LP - EP2501
1986 Original EP in shrink. The album is a perfect blend of holiday classics and original tracks, all infused with the band's signature quirky and fun sound. Their take on "Jingle Bells" with the added saxophone solo is absolutely amazing. The album also features a heartfelt rendition of "Silent Night" that brought a tear to my eye. Overall, NRBQ's Christmas Wish is a must-have for any holiday music lover, and it's sure to put you in the festive spirit!" more

Grooves In Orbit
New - LP - 23817
Sealed 1983 Original, Saw-Cut. "Between The Rollicking And Self-Descriptive "12 Bar Blues," The Glorious Pop Perfection Of "Rain At The Drive-In" And "How Can I Make You Love Me," The Honky Tonk Thunder Of "Get Rhythm" (A Johnny Cash Cover That Out-Rocks The Great Version They Recorded For At Yankee Stadium), And The Guitar-Powered Relationship Advice Of "A Girl Like That," Grooves In Orbit Finds NRBQ Firing On All Cylinders And Playing With Earth-Shaking Joy. When It Connects, Grooves In Orbit Is A Great Album, And Even When It Misses, It's Solid Fun And Worth A Few Spins." - AMG more
Grooves In Orbit
Used - LP - 9 23817-1
1983 US Original, Allied Pressing. Light Seam Rubs And Light Fading At Spine & Mouth Edge. "After NRBQ's At Yankee Stadium Failed To Become A Hit, Mercury Records Dropped Them, And It Would Be Five Years Before The Band Would Have Another Chance To Record For A Major Label. While At Yankee Stadium Was By Their Standards A Tight And Consistent Set That Gracefully Balanced Commercial Appeal With Their Taste For The Offbeat, NRBQ Seemed Content To Follow Their Own Path Under Bearsville's Sponsorship, And Grooves In Orbit Sounds More Like One Of The Band's Red Rooster Sessions Than A Bid For A Wider Audience. The Opening Track, "Smackaroo," Is An Irresistible Rocker Once You Get Past The Fact That The Lyrics Are Almost Completely Unintelligible, And The Decision To Close Out The Sides With "Daddy-'O" (A Frantic Polka Number Recorded In Front Of A Well-Oiled Audience) And "Hit The Hay" (An Ode To Sleep) Suggests NRBQ Were Happily Resigned To Life As A Cult Item. However, If You Want Evidence To Back Up The Old Saw That NRBQ Are The Greatest Bar Band On Earth, Grooves In Orbit Will Do Just Fine -- Between The Rollicking And Self-descriptive "12 Bar Blues," The Glorious Pop Perfection Of "Rain At The Drive-in" And "How Can I Make You Love Me," The Honky Tonk Thunder Of "Get Rhythm" (A Johnny Cash Cover That Out-rocks The Great Version They Recorded For At Yankee Stadium), And The Guitar-powered Relationship Advice Of "A Girl Like That," Grooves In Orbit Finds NRBQ Firing On All Cylinders And Playing With Earth-Shaking Joy.

Kick Me Hard
Used - LP - 3030
1979 US Original Vinyl Pressing Still In Shrink. Cut Corner. "BONDO BORREEGAN" In Deadwax. "NRBQ's Short-lived Alliance With Mercury Records Resulted In One Of The Tightest And Most Consistently Rockin' Albums Of Their Career, At Yankee Stadium, But A Year Later They Found Themselves Back On Their Own Red Rooster Label, Where The Band Relaxed And Let Their Characteristic Wit Come To The Forefront On 1979's Kick Me Hard. Opening With A Musical Look At America's Drug Laws As Only NRBQ Could Interpret Them ("Wacky Tobacky"), Kick Me Hard Finds The Q Indulging Their Fondness For Goofiness On Tunes Like "It Was An Accident" (Romance Is Complicated By Unplanned Pregnancy), "Things We Like To Do" (A Rewrite Of An Old Ross Bagdasarian Number In Which The Guys Declare Their Fondness For Miniskirts And The TV Show Chips), And "Chores" (In Which Someone Seems To Enjoy Doing Their Pig Imitation Just A Bit Too Much). But As Always, Nrbq Also Provides An Equal Amount Of Evidence That They're One Of The Most Solid, Soulful, And Eclectic Bands On The Planet, Running From Barrelhouse R&B ("All Night Long"), Rootsy Rockabilly ("This Old House"), Cool Jazz ("Tenderly"), And Other Stuff That Simply Exists In A World All Its Own ("Electric Train"), With The Band Displaying Sharp Chops And Tremendous Charm Throughout (Especially Guitarist Al Anderson And Keyboard Wizard Terry Adams). And As A Bonus, You Get Perhaps The Most Remarkable Version Of "North To Alaska" Ever Captured By Modern Recording Equipment! How Can You Go Wrong?" AMG - Mark Deming. more

Scraps
New - LP - KSBS 2045
Sealed 1972 Original. "Scraps" is the second studio album by the American rock band NRBQ, released in 1972. The album was produced & engineered by Eddie Kramer (Of Jimi Hendrix Fame). NRBQ, which stands for "New Rhythm and Blues Quartet," was formed in 1967 in Tampa, Florida. The band's original lineup consisted of Terry Adams on keyboards, Steve Ferguson on guitar, Joey Spampinato on bass, and Tom Staley on drums. The band's early sound was a mix of rock, R&B, and jazz, and they quickly gained a reputation as a formidable live act. The album received positive reviews upon its release, with critics praising the band's musicianship and eclectic sound. However, it did not achieve commercial success, and the band continued to tour extensively and release albums throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Today, "Scraps" is considered a classic of the rock and roll genre, and NRBQ is regarded as one of the most influential and innovative bands of their era. The band continues to perform and record to this day, with Adams and Spampinato as the only remaining original members. more
