I included today’s Dave Edmunds tune on one of the mixtapes I made for our wedding reception 21 years ago.
It may have been one of the tunes that prompted Aunt June to ask whether we had anything other than “that cowboy music.” I guess Dave’s twanging guitars sounded like “cowboy music.”
If I had it to do over, perhaps we’d hire a band. But we had so many albums, even in 1987, that making a few mixtapes made some sense.
Perhaps you have a wedding this summer. Perhaps your bride used to rock ‘n’ roll. If so, you might want this one, written by Nick Lowe.
“I Knew The Bride,” Dave Edmunds, from “Get It,” 1977.
Dave handles all the vocals and most of the instruments on this album, with a little help from his pals in Rockpile, particularly Lowe on bass and Terry Williams on drums. I can’t say who’s on this cut, though. The liner notes aren’t that specific.
