Naked Eyes - Naked Eyes (1983) . . . Tonight I decided to treat myself with some British synthpop and this amazing album. I’ve had this album for awhile and I’ve listened to it quite a few times, but mainly playing my favorite tracks off of it to pass time. When I started looking into this album however I found some interesting things about it. First of all, Naked Eyes isn’t the original title for this album, it’s actually Burning Bridges, however for the North American releases it was changed for whatever reason. Secondly, this isn’t the original album cover for it either, however I do prefer this one over the original, it’s just a lot more mysterious and interesting. Finally, the track listing is also completely different from the original, and also it’s missing 2 songs from the original UK version! Maybe one day I’ll stumble upon the UK version, but for now I get to enjoy this wacky alternated US version. . . . This album is definitely an essential for those into synthpop, new wave, or anything 80s. So many of these songs sound really groovy and produced very well with the group who created them. The vocals of Pete Byrne with the keyboarding power of Rob Fisher made Naked Eyes who they were. The group is mainly known today from the songs “Promises, Promises” and “Always Something There to Remind Me” (which is a cover of a Burt Bacharach song made in the 60s, which is another thing I didn’t know), but the groups talent is extremely existent within this record. Songs like “Emotion in Motion”, “Burning Bridges”, “Fortune and Fame” and “Voices in My Head” are also incredible and make this album so satisfying to listen to. . . . #nakedeyes #alwayssomethingtheretoremindme #promisespromises #burningbridges #album #vinyl #records #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinylcollectionpost

I wasn't able to make it out to Bill’s visitation today (see my previous post), but I figured today would be a good day to post this plum and tell one of my favorite Bill/Highland stories. Bill always had a crate full of loose records with no sleeves on sale for super cheap, and I would always trawl this bin looking for stuff I could match to mismatched sleeves, etc. One day back in 2013, I’m digging through this crate and found this record with no sleeve. Thing is, Bill also had the sleeve on display in the front window with no record inside, so I knew they went together. I go up to the counter and ask how much for the record (this was another thing about Highland: a lot of the records weren’t priced, so you’d just have to chance it sometimes) and Bill gives it a once over and goes “eh, two dollars.” Fair enough. So then I go, “can I go ahead and buy the cover too?” He thinks about it for a minute and says “well, the cover’s worth more than the record….tell you what, I’ll sell you the sleeve for $2, and you can have the record for free.” At this moment my internal monologue is in full Jackie Chan “head exploding meme” mode, but I didn’t argue. This is what buying records at Highland was like a lot of the time, and this is precisely what made it the best. I believe this is an OG, I can’t seem to find this exact pressing on Discogs but it’s one with the “Adderly” misprint and the label (as well as the back cover) reversing the song titles. I found one that matches this exactly but with the correct label order, so that seems close enough. . . . #milesdavis #kindofblue #1959 #highlandrecords #sowhat #freddiefreeloader #blueingreen #flamencosketches #allblues #cannonballadderley #johncoltrane #wynkelly #billevans #paulchambers #jamescobb #jazz #columbia6eye #vinyligclub #vinylvisuals #vinylporn #ditc #digginginthecrates #cratedigging #cratedigger #cratecommunications #dustyfingers #waxpoetics #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinylcommunity
