November 4 – Monday – Walter Egan – Not Shy

I don’t know where Walter Egan came from, nor where he went, and I’m not compelled to find out. This was in the days when Stevie Nicks was so hot she was showing up as a background singer, as she had on this album, and in duets on just about everybody’s records. I like Stevie Nicks. Love “Silver Springs” and “Landslide,” but it was a bit of an overload after a while.

Walter Egan was famous for the cute little ditty “Magnet and Steel” on side one of this album. I don’t remember a thing about side two, but it adds a little darkness to the poppishness of the whole sound. It’s a very simplistic album – one-dimensional, which may be the problem I had with The Cars album. What’s a good $10 word for simple to describe what I’m trying to convey? And what would the current value of a $10 word be?

Actually, this is not a bad workout album.
