JDIZZY's 365 # 230: Dream Police

Dream Police - Cheap Trick (1979)

Here, in reverse sequential order, are the top three reasons I love seventies rock:

A Brit, some Canucks.....and the most brilliant American band to step out of the Watergate decade!!!!! Cheap Trick perfected power pop, influencing band after band in their wake. AND THEY WERE HUGE IN JAPAN!!!!! Their greatest track, in my humble opinionated opinion, is the title track from their 1979 sci-fi classic, which also happened to be their last perfect album. Is it fitting that it came out then?Since they helped define rock and roll in those ten years, I respond with a resounding yes.

Punk rockers love some Trick!
