There’s no shortage of great NRBQ releases. But, fans of the eclectic ensemble’s irresistible pop side need look no further than this great early-80s album, Grooves In Orbit. I’m admittedly biased, since a cassette of this one inhabited my car for almost two years, until the magnetics cried uncle and I sacrificed it to the Interstate gods one afternoon. It’s a compatible mix of pop songs and bar rockers that works both ways. NRBQ are commonly referred to as one of the world’s greatest bar bands (the live track “Daddy-O” will offer a taste), and their R&B-laced, good time roots rock & roll never fails to satisfy a crowd that’s typically as lubricated as the band members themselves – for which I can attest, having seen them twice around this time. In the mid-80s I also experienced a chance encounter one morning with pianist Terry Adams while checking into a cheap, out-of-town motel. I said, “Hey… Terry Adams? Please tell me you’re checking in and not out.” Perhaps because we were both wearing the same night-after sun glasses, he sensed a kindred spirit. “Aw, man. We played last night, sorry… Wanna get a drink ’til the others get up?” This 1990 issue features 2 tracks not on the original vinyl. @ Amazon, HERE.
