NRBQ – At Yankee Stadium / 1978

 

NRBQ got lost in the late 70’s mix because they were a fun-time college-radio band at a time when college radio was overrun by angry young punks.

That’s too bad for the average schmoe, who never got to hear much of this great LP.

In the late 1970s NRBQ gained a reputation for amazing live shows where, among other things, they would take requests from the audience and could faithfully reproduce virtually any song mentioned. They were a good time without being stupid. To hear Joey Spampinato hum & strum “I Love Her, She Loves Me” is to understand what the sweet side of Pop was meant to be.

NRBQ AT YANKEE STADIUM is so full of good songs it just makes you sick that everyone hasn’t heard it. It is a victory for average man, who wants to have fun without being stupid, who wants to sing without being a sap, who wants to dance without fear.
