This Time
Private Mind (

REM, Elvis Costello, the DBs, Nick Lowe, the Pretenders, Marshall Crenshaw, the Smithereens.  If any of these artists are in your collection then, chances are good, you’ll enjoy this CD.  10 well written songs pumped full of jangly guitars, witty lyrics and steady backbeats.  “She’ll Come Around” and “This Time” are the two radio friendly tracks that immediately pop to mind.
