MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK - DAVE EDMUNDS - HIGH SCHOOL NIGHTS - 1985 - #91

Best known for his top 40 hits "I Hear You Knockin'" and "Slipping Away," British guitarist Dave Edmunds hit the Hot 100 one last time in 1985 with this track that was featured in "Porky's Revenge," the third and last movie in the successful "Porky's" franchise. I always thought this song wasn't given a fair chance, and the best way to hear it is through the extended version that was played during the movie's closing credits.

Dave always had an obvious love for late 50's and early 60's rock and roll. This was especially true with his playing a big part in getting The Stray Cats a lot of success in the U.S. He could also crank out some frenzied fretwork with the best of them; check out "Sabre Dance" from his late 60's group Love Sculpture and you will quickly understand!

Choosing this video this week was easy for another reason: it is my way to remind you of my new show "Gil's High School Reunion," which begins today and runs daily until June 29th from 2 to 3 PM eastern. This will really be the only time on The Retro Attic when you will get to hear mostly hits! The show features all of the hits from 1973-83 that you love(or perhaps can only barely tolerate) along with the occasional lost gem. The show culminates on June 29th with an all-day marathon that will serve as the background music at my 30th reunion party. All I know is that it cuts down considerably on having to lug around a bunch of equipment and everyone will get to mingle/enjoy themselves!
