#TBT #Vinyl The Kings Are Here, 1980

4 Jan

Switchin' to Glide

The Kings
This Beat Goes On / Switchin’ To Glide
The Kings Are Here
Elektra Records
1980

 

One of my all-time favorites is the 2-in-1 song “This Beat Goes On / Switchin’ To Glide” from 1980. This was a huge regional hit in Toronto, Vancouver, and Chicago (all the rock stations here played it!) but not as well known outside of these cities.

Billy Joel‘s best album – skip the hits and check out Beatle-esque “Laura” and Christmas song (kind of) “She’s Right on Time.” Liberty DeVito never sounded better on the drums!

A very cool and strange live album. This is the actual Joe Cocker, not John Belushi‘s spot-on impersonation!
