The Scruffs - Swingin' Singles - 2003

Of course, as anyone familiar with The Scruffs knows, it is Big Star and Raspberries (Burns voice sounds like a more gravely version of Eric Carmen`s) that is the primary launch pad for the template of Stephen Burns and The Scruffs. Wonderfully so. "Sugar" being the most classic, long lost Big Star sounding track we`ve heard in years. But think more on the Chris Bell side of things, as opposed to Chilton. "You Are Wrong(I Am Right)" has the gorgeous mastery of Bell`s strongest assets in mind. This album first came out in 2003 but never made it to these shores and was mired in obscurity. Consider the problem rectified and a pop legend rediscovered and reborn and relevant for the present. Big Time Extremely Highly Recommended! -Not Lame

thanks for the post. I was not aware of this album as I have 2 or 3 other scruffs' albums I purchased years ago.
