Sometimes you can look at something time and time again and not really pick up in what it is. Such is the case with the album that I flipped past several times at Frugal Muse. It was an album called “The Mad Scene”. The cover was nothing I recognized and looked jazzy as I passed it.
In fact I flipped past this album probably 3 or 4 different trips there.
Then one night as I was Googling Madison bands and an image of the album came up. I recognized it. Then investigated. Turns out it’s a compilation of Madison bands! The Mad Scene, duh… now I get it. I read the review of it and I was astonished. Paul Black and The Flip Kings are on it !!!
I headed back to Frugal Muse at my first opportunity and was glad to still find it there. $9.98 sigh, but how could I NOT get it, it had Paul Black on it, and not just an album cut that existed on something I already had. This was a unique track called “Love Reprieve”.
Turns out Honor Among Thieves is on it too!
Spooner too. It’s a good album, a nice cross-section of Madison bands that came though Smart Studios. The album was compiled by you know who… Butch Vig. Man ya gotta love that guy.
The Paul Black and The Flip Kings track is awesome, of course. I think I NOW may have everything he ever released.
This is a good compilation to get your hands on.
In my case it’s basically a ten dollar Paul Black single, but, the guy is SO worth it.
If anyone reading this knows of any other Paul Black than “How How”, “Don’t Make Me Get Up”, “King Dollar”, Live At The Harmony”, or has their hands on some live recorded tapes of Paul Black and The Flip Kings that they would like me to convert…
Please contact me.
