Decade of Difference: Dave Edmunds

Decade of Difference features Dave Edmunds. Edmunds work through out the 1970s was predominately as a producer, which is how he met Nick Lowe. Their collaboration became Rockpile. They could not officially work together because of the record deals, but they worked on each others records. In the late 1970s, Edmunds had a series of hit covers including Lowe’s “I Knew the Bride”  and Graham Parker’s “Crawling from the Wreckage”  WNRN played Dave Edmunds and “Crawling from the Wreckage” on a Decade of Difference.

After a nearly five year wait, Rockpile album was released in 1980, but the band broke up shortly after because of disputes between managers. Dave Edmunds remained active for a few more years, then semi-retired. In the early 1980s, Dave Edmunds continued on his streak of 1950s rock infused covers, including the Christmas song, originally popularized by Chuck Berry in 1958. Dave Edmunds rocked out on “Run Rudolf Run.”

Take 2@2 for Tuesday, December 12th, 2017. We spend a second day with the new Shovels & Rope covers collection Busted Jukebox Vol. 2.

“I’m Your Man” is the title track to Cohen’s 1988 album. This song of begging for forgiveness is Cohen surrendering to his love for another person.

Shovels & Rope is heading our way. You can see them at the Warehouse Concert Series in Lynchburg on Thursday, March 29th.
