    DIAMOND STATUS
    • Jan 2004
    • 16518

    1) SENSIBLE SHOES - I remember many, many years ago explaining to POJO why this is Dave's shining moment...I explained it so well...so much better than I could now. And...he got it. There was no debate necessary.
    2) DAMN GOOD - Gives me goosebumps. Still.
    3) SHYBOY - It rocks harder than even a lot of prime VH stuff. It's intense. It is primal.
    4) LITTLE TEXAS - The highlight of the excellent DLR BAND album. This album represents my summer of 1998.
    5) YANKEE ROSE - This is Dave's JUMP. It's one of the catchiest things ever written.
    6) LOSE THE DRESS (KEEP THE SHOES) - This is just classic. Love the riff. And Dave is struttin' 'n' swaggerin'.
    7) IT'S SHOWTIME! - I remember discovering this and thinking it was like an outtake from FAIR WARNING or something. It solidifies the Jason Becker tragedy like nothing else could.
    8) JUST LIKE PARADISE - I know some people can't stand it. The arpeggio'd keyboard bit on the chorus is pure pop songwriting magic. The a capalla part...
    9) BIG TRAIN - It's Dave...but with horns...in a good way. It's Dave's James Brown moment.
    10) BLACK SAND - DLR BAND. Again, MY summer of '98. This song is the ultimate recreational drug song. I just realized...I'm not sure if I ever listened to this on a beach. I should. (I've listened to it on a boat with a drink in my hand.)

      You know...it's been so long since I've heard SENSIBLE SHOES...am slightly embarrassed to say I had forgotten about it.

        #1 is maybe a bit of a stretch but out of the half dozen Roth solo songs with that vibe it's the best.

        I used to think I would go for Damn Good at the climax of my funeral but over the years I've changed that to On Fire.

          So you have opted for cremation.

              Some things like an amoeba, Neal Young or the this forum, never change.

                I see Lady Luck here and there but that song doesn't get enough run IMO. I think it is one of the best songs on ALAE. Where is the love?
