First time I really listened to this album, I was in high school. I had my stereo set up at the head of my bed with the speakers aimed at my ears. That way I could go to sleep listening to music (or comedy), but without headphones and not wake anyone up in the house. I got really good at operating that stereo upside down with my eyes closed! So, I put this one on, on side one and started it up.Nothing.Nothing.Hmm, maybe the volume's low, I better turn it up.Nothing.Turn up the volume a bit more...And that's when the drums started. A full blast, ear orgy of rhythm and power. I was immediately hooked (and I reached up and turned down the speakers as soon as I recovered).
