Album of the Day
No Fun Aloud
Following up on the massive success of the Eagles was a tall order, but with NO FUN ALOUD, singer-songwriter Glenn Frey proved equal to the task. For the most part, the 1982 Asylum album eschews the California mystique of his previous band for laid-back good times, and Frey's confident vocals and well-crafted songs make it nearly irresistible. “All Those Lies,” “I Found Somebody” and “The One You Love” all reached the pop singles chart, but there are gems sprinkled throughout the track list, such as a dynamic cover of New Orleans rocker “Sea Cruise.” A legion of top instrumentalists joined the star in studios from L.A. to Muscle Shoals to Miami for this set, and the seamless result became a gold-certified hit. Glenn Frey was born on this day in 1948 and we'll give NO FUN ALOUD another spin in his honor.
