This Cassette Tuesday we introduce the debut recording
of 1986, The Smithereens release.
The Smithereens from New Jersey was considered an alternative band
that I have heard on the alternative radio station in the late 80's.
Their debut release "Especially For You" in '86 was a very good recording.
"Blood And Roses" (youtube link at end of page) was the single although I did a number
of other songs on this debut made the radio.
Produced by Don Dixon who produced a number of other bands like REM and even
released a few solo albums of his own.
