Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Following a brief detour into MESOPOTAMIA, the B-52's got their mojo back with WHAMMY! Recorded at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas, the 1983 Warner Bros. set gets the party vibes going on nine hook-filled originals including the irresistible "Legal Tender," "Song For A Future Generation" and "Whammy Kiss.” The album finds the Athens quintet embracing synthesizers and drum machines, but doing so with a playful approach that never descends into New Wave cliché. Today we'll wish B-52's singer Kate Pierson a very happy birthday with the Top 30, Gold-certified WHAMMY!
