I’d forgotten about this one. The lyric is by Bruce Abbott, who co-wrote Mirrors and Golden Age Of Leather. It was too “not BOC” for final consideration. Bruce also wrote the lyric for “Dawn Of The Living Dead” on the Red And The Black CD.
It might work if remade today as a throwback to that type of music. Given how songs that have been in the pipeline for decades ended up on newer records like Showtime for Curse or Nightmare Epiphany for Symbol, I wonder if it could be revamped for the future should Frontier be amenable to a followup. That song sounds like the kind of thing Richie could sink his teeth into as well.

Was fortunate to see TR & TB live three times. So I was very excited to learn that Buck was releasing a CD of those tunes. Melne got in touch with me and she and Buck used my concert pics in the booklet. Awesome to get a credit on a BD album! By the way, Buck, do you still have that double-neck?
Always wanted to hear Can’t Get Next To You from the studio, but Buck said that didn’t exist, so unless there was a pristine live version around, we’d have to settle for the boots. I liked that version so much that my band at that time covered TR & TB’s cover of it!
