    Nope, can't imagine it today, ETG, but my first Eagle concert in 1975 was $5.50. My last in 1980 was $12.50. The prices were cheap but had still more than doubled!

    Yes, definitely doable! I would have loved to see them in the 70's!!

    Thank you, NMB and ETG. I was wondering the same about Marx!

    Better late than never so here goes -

    Happy belated anniversary to One More Song!!

    This is a really nice effort by Randy with some fun pop/adult contemporary tunes and an Eagles vibe. From wiki, hereís a brief review of the album:

    Retrospectively reviewing for AllMusic, critic Mike DeGagne wrote of the album "One More Song highlights Meisner's knack for writing honest, heartfelt love songs with a countrified rock candor that reveals his rustic, down-home roots." and he added that, "One More Song ends up being a pleasurable set of modest songs from a musician who was glad to be home."

    I like this phrase: "honest, heartfelt love songs with a countrified rock candor" - it describes Randy's songs well!

    That is nice, thanks for sharing Soda! When you say Wiki, is that the same as Wikipedia? Because I didnít see it there.

    The review snippet is from the album's Wikipedia page. It's under the heading "Critical reception"

    Thanks, Delilah! Good for him! I enjoyed reading the whole list, as I had just graduated from high school the year before. Very nostalgic!

    Youíre welcome, FreyFollower. It was nostalgic for me too, I had just started high school. It was a good year for Pat Benatar with 3 albums on the list!
