||Waited a long time for this on CD|
It has been over 20 years since I listened to this-then album. To finally find this on CD has been a real treat for me. I'm Gonna Be a Wheel Someday,Dead Man and Choo Choo Ch' Boogie are terrific. The whole album is terrific but my favorite is Bloodshot Eyes which I find as humorous as it is well played. So good to hear this again!
