Here is a little nugget of power pop heaven from 1979, Dwight Twilley with Alone in My Room. I tend to wax poetic when discussing my hometown rocker. Back during his brief brush with fame in the mid-70s I would preach to the unwashed in an attempt to gain some converts. With the benefit of hindsight I can see that his heartfelt marriage of Beatles, rockabilly, and glam was just too out of step with current trends. However for me the joy continues, and I have discovered a fantastic back catalog of albums right up to the present day. I hope to be posting some of those hidden gems soon.
This track kicks off with a tasty guitar riff fighting against the counterpoint of the bass line. One of the great features of this song is the front-and-center guitar work. But the chorus just kills me. This should have been a GIANT hit!
