a selection of NRBQ favourites

I see a new chapter of The NRBQ story is about to begin with the release of there new album, ‘Keep This Love Goin’, Terry Adams is the only remaining original member with a new NRBQ behind him. I’ve yet to hear the new one but I’m certain that there’s gonna be something swingin’ on it.

Here’s a selection of The Vampyres favourite NRBQ songs, including tracks from NRBQ, Boppin’ the Blues, Scraps, Workshop, All Hopped Up, Kick me hard, Tiddlywinks, Tapdancing Bats, Grooves in Orbit, Lou and the Q, Music’s been good to me, Atsa my band, You’re nice people you are, and Ludlow Garage. There’s a lot of NRBQ stuff that Im not much into but you can be sure that any one of there discs has at least one great track on it. Scraps and the self titled first album are the ones I’m most likely to make a grab for should the local peasants start burnin’ down the castle.

    Thanks Vamp. Look forward to listening to these tunes. I love Rocket No 9 from your Rocket songs compilation.

  2. No problem Mr T, there’s lots to like here

  3. So…did you get around to checking out “Keep This Love Goin'” yet??


  4. Yup. I shouldn’t have been surprised to find that it sounds quite a lot like NRBQ. ‘Im Satisfied’, Sweet and Petit’ and ‘Talk’ are the ones that talk to me. It’s never gonna be my favourite Q album (tapdancing bats at the moment) but still nice to have around the house. Thanks VV
