Original Badlands ’77 By Maine Legend Bill Chinnock Is Back On CD
When a longtime Blimpster calls in to request Something For Everybody by Bill Chinnock, we usually go to the original vinyl. The Badlands release from Atlantic is a bit too slick-up for a lot of us. So, we tend to go back to the version that was played on WBLM in starting in 1977 and leading up to Bill's major label deal in 1978.
I have very fond 11 year old memories of standing in front of my mirror and singing "something for young and old...streets a paved with money, sidewalks paved in gold" into a hairbrush along with Bill while listening to the Blimp.
Yup we still have it and have preserved it as best we can since the trailer days of the 1970s in Litchfield. Sure there are some pops and crackles as well as cue burn at the beginning of some tracks. That's ok though. These are signs of a well-loved recording.
Well now we are especially happy here at the Blimp to be able to play that original North Country Records release on CD. And now you can get your own copy too! Bill Chinnock forever!
