"Different Seconds Of Pleasure" : THE WEEKEND MIX

This should be self-explanatory. I was inspired by Mauijim's comment on Wednesday's post about putting Rockpile back together for a new record. I played "Seconds Of Pleasure" and yes, yes, oh what a thrill...still. I couldn't just share the record as is. And then I thought of this.

Enjoy. Apologies in advance for the fluctuation in audio quality. I did what I could with my resources. It's really not bad at all. I had a blast, test-driving it. I think you will, too.


Teacher Teacher (Live)- Rockpile
If Sugar Was As Sweet- Joe Tex
Heart- Nick Lowe
Now & Always- Tim Rogers & Davey Lane
A Knife & Fork- Kip Anderson
Play That Fast Thing- Brinsley Schwarz
Wrong Again- Squeeze
Pet You & Hold You- Nick Lowe
Oh What A Thrill- Chuck Berry
When I Write The Book- Elvis Costello & Nick Lowe

You Ain't Nothin' But Fine- Rockin' Sidney

it's not hard to find used copies of "Seconds" in the dollar bins. it's bemusing - who would give up that record?

This looks great. Thanks. Rockpile coulda been a contenda... guess it wasn't meant to be.

But if memory serves, the original LP came with a bonus EP of Nick and Dave singing Everly Bros. songs, right?
No rule says a Weekend Mix can't have bonus tracks!

The thought crossed my mind and now I regret not doing it. Would have been fairly easy to find four Everly Brothers covers. Damn it!


This mix ain't nothin' but fine!

I have that Nick & Dave Everlys EP... but no turntable (sorry, vinyl d-bags).

Would love to hear that disc again—can anyone point me to mp3 files of it? I couldn't find anything...

Ken D,
I'll send you a zip of the EP. I'll just post it here, in case anyone else wants. You should sell me your records!

Another good one! Saw Rockpile open for Elvis Costello a couple times in 1978.

Nice one. Thanks mixing it. For my sins I've been listening to a lot of Dave Edmunds & Squeeze this past fortnight so this is a comfortable fit. Cheers!
