Ed outdid himself, and that’s not an easy feat. I am still swooning from the Chameleons’ brilliant cover of “Tomorrow Never Knows.” Even though I am a Chameleons/Mark Burgess fan, I have to admit that was my first time hearing it. Such a fitting tribute on the 29th anniversary of John Lennon’s untimely death. Ed has told me the song from the “Strange Times” CD re-release as a bonus track. Thank you, Ed.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “just try and guess that one” 80’s Retrospect show on CFRC-FM from 8 pm until 10 pm on Tuesday nights. Ed takes requests by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372) or email: retrospectcfrc at yahoo dot ca. Indulge yourself in some “80’s Music that doesn’t suck.” I guarantee die-hard 80’s New Wave/post-punk fans will not be disappointed.
