Not "the" Shoes (OK emusic?!!) While a great deal of this is definitely "period" stuff with all the cheese-synth signatures and guitar-processor-into-the-recording-board (early digital) textures, the construction/production of the songs is actually quite amazing. The interesting thing is that these guys stayed quite independent throughout and I hope they still have their studio up in Zion (Short Order Recorder?). To me,their sound was always like The Cars on steroids. Download some of this as there are some of the most pristine harmonies and productions from the period (especially the "Propeller" stuff, 7, 9, 13,14). Sweet.
