Vinyl love: Barenaked Ladies “Gordon”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Barenaked Ladies
Album Title: Gordon
Year released: 1992
Year reissued: 2017
Details: Black vinyl, 2 x LP, 180 gram Gatefold sleeve, 25th anniversary edition

The skinny: I blame my friend Pat for my having pre-ordered this one early last summer but when I first slipped it on the turntable, I was glad I did. Such memories. Twenty-five years ago, Barenaked Ladies released this, their debut album, and though not all of the songs have aged gracefully, there are those, like the one below, that are now classics.

Standout track: “Brian Wilson”

    1. I completely understand. I can’t tolerate very much anything after this album. However, this album was pretty huge and innovative for many of us back in 1992. A lot of nostalgia here.

    1. Ditto on both counts. There are a couple of later tunes I enjoy but nothing really compares. I did really like the Yellow tape too but that preceded everything.
