Ben Vaughn: Blows your mind LP 1988. Happy R’n’R. Check audio.
60’s inspired Rock N Roll. This record has the creative spine and sprightly production to low-key its way into the pop pleasure-dome, somewhere between Jonathan Richman and Yo La Tengo. The relaxed love songs (like “Shes Your Problem Now”) are delightful; the vintage- styled rockers (“Darlene,” the gentle instrumental “El Rambler Dorado”) are lively without getting out of hand.
