For today’s episode of Take Your Vinyl To A Concert; Eddie Money and Huey Lewis and the News:
Another Summer Concert Series event at our favorite local venue. This time, taking a record out on a date actually paid off… I managed to snag an autograph from Mr. Edward Joseph Mahoney (AKA Eddie Money)! Here’s a better look:
“Mark, Best, Eddie Money”… in silver sharpie across the cover of my well loved copy of 1983s Where’s The Party?
The other album featured was purchased at the venue’s merch table, HL&TNs 2010s Soulsville.
I hadn’t heard of Soulsville, but it’s an interesting mix of semi-obscure (to me, anyway) Stax numbers. The thing was recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis as an homage to Stax and radio station WOIA where the young artists heard this inspiring music.
