Ye gods. I consider myself a record collector, but here I sit, thoroughly ashamed of myself, because I missed this one ...
I loved 'Steve McQueen' and 'From Langley Park to Memphis' to pieces. I played the vinyl until I wore it out. But I totally missed this one going by. 'Protest Songs' fits absolutely perfectly after 'Steve McQueen', but, despite being recorded in 1985, it was not released until 1989. They must have had their reasons.
I don't find it difficult to transport myself back to 1985. It was a highly significant year in my life for all kinds of reasons. And this sounds to me like the album that's always been missing from my record collection.
Five stars. Five stars. I love it!
