I have always particularly liked "Just A Man And His Perm". It's a very moving song about being a quiet, introspective person amidst three party animals.

Onre of my favourites was always "If You Can't Beat Them Ignore Them - Revisited" - really prophetic when you think about it..


I do not want any google ads here.

My least favorite track is "Can't Do It Without Him"
It's too depressing.

Aw heck, you guys are obviously making the song titles up since none of you wannabe's have CLEARLY never heard or even touched the album. How pathetic :-P

Now perhaps some TRUE experts like Niek and Pim could post the ACTUAL tracklisting for the less educated fans... :-)

The best song is still "Red Dirt" btw.
But the mindblowing cover of "Sugar Baby Love" is a close second, can't get enough of that falsetto.
Mmm mmm mmm.

Similar to Brian on BTTL having a profile pic for the UK version but with him playing a guitar for the USA, my USA 'Shadows' has a pic of John playing bass in jeans and blue tee with a black background. I hope this isn't a bootleg.

You have clearly been ripped off. The so called USA version (indeed a bootleg) contains mostly unreleased songs that John later disapproved of because they were a bit too emotional. You can easily tell which is the official version, it's the only one that contains "What's Wrong With A Volvo".

The 'bass extravaganza' at the end is a bit much. Was Brian not chucking peanuts at him when he guested on one of dates of 'The Immortals' on tour

The best song has gotta be 'The cheques keep rolling in'

I did not expect a new topic to be created just because of my mentioning of the 'Man in the Shadows' track as my fav Deacon song.

I would prefer not to go into too much detail about this album, as to my knoledge less than 20 people througout the world have copies of the real album (as opposed to the bootleg copy performed by an unknown band, and sold at the Edmonton convention a few years back).

The vast majority of people who have the REAL album, obtained it through, shall we say, 'unconventional' means. So for legal reasons, I will have to limit myself in terms of what I say about the album.

John's falsetto is nothing short of amazing, you have my guarantee.

What are the odds of someone recording a song called "What's Wrong With A Volvo"?
You do the math.....

We're just having a bit of fun, at no one's expense in particular I hope.
