I just have the cd...but I don't think it's as legendary as some other stuff because it was regarded as kind of a novelty pop album with a video on MTV, and then it didn't help when Volkswagon used their song, it helped with Nick Drake's music, but that's a different audience and sensibility...
That's just been my impression, I don't realy know.
But I owe The Oblivians for knowing about them and Lightnin Hopkins....it's weird to think that I was listening to Oblivians before Lightnin Hopkins, but I don't know if I even thought the blues was cool until I heard The Gories and Oblivians....I was like 14....it blows my mind. Just want to say thanks Greg.
