A forgotten jem of the 80's

Here's a band that got it right from their beginning, much like REM. And like REM, never could quite equal that early peak, in my opinion. The sunny melodies fit the band's world music/folk mix perfectly. And this album definitely stands the test of time, since it never really fit in when it was release. (Although, it did get a LOT of airplay on WXPN in Philly.) My advice: download "Living with the Dreaming Body", fall in love with the song, then get the rest of the album.

Sweeeeeeet!

So many late 80s acid-fueled memories come back with this beauty. I have to believe that this album had an influence on bands like Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Decemberists, and Cold War Kids. Thanks!

Great band

PDP is one of only two opening acts that ever grabbed me enough to go out and buy their record. It was 1987, and they were opening for Robyn Hitchcock at the Vic theatre in Chicago. My buddy Joel and I saw their name, thought "How pretentious," and specifically tried to miss them. But the show was late, which was good because we walked through the door, heard them playing, and were immediately hooked. Got the record on Texas Hotel, then bought this (a compilation of their first two indie EPs) when it came out. It didn't really capture their live sound, but it was good. Kinda neo-hippie vaguely world-music-y. Worth hearing.

I remember when this recording first came out on Texas Hotel -- so full of whimsy and bliss and poetry and infectious music. One of my top 10 all-time favorites and well worth your time and your money.

Not so precious as some of their other work. This album, their major-label debut, is certainly whimsical, but it contains enough assertiveness to make their folk-rock worldbeat engaging. – John Dougan
