forever-ish young

On the recommendation of a favored NON TOUR DIARY reader, A&R finally watched YOUNG@HEART. Seeing the group rehearse I Feel Good made A&R so nervous, but the night of the performance, when it really counted, they pulled it off.
Songs like Bowie's Golden Years, the Ramones' I Wanna Be Sedated, and The Who's, oops i meant The Clash's Should I Stay or Should I Go take on a whole new meaning when sung by a group whose median age is 80+.
One of the performers'phrasing brought to mind Marianne Faithfull circa the Broken English LP. That's my favorite MF record.
Still no tour or shows or anything...2buy fearing the repo man.
