Unusuals - 44U EP (1980) + bonus live track

There's a lot to like about this 45, including the cover art (hello, 80's!) and the first track on here, "You Only Make it With Rich Guys," which is power pop gold. To add to the package, we've included, courtesy of Ian Grant, who drummed in a later incarnation of The Unusuals, a recording of the band tackling "Shakin' All Over" (Johnny Kidd & the Pirates) at Dinnie's Den in the University of Calgary, sometime in the early '80s--thanks heaps, Ian!

Plus, via the youtubes, we have some great video of the band (with Grant also on the drums):

Grab this great 45 and bonus track here, and then click through to this youtube user's stream for more Unusuals video goodness.

Love the concept! Love the blog! Thanks for providing this information. A little before I got into the swing of it all (1990), but I was listening to CJSW and miss some of those old songs and shows! If you need any technical advice I work as a web developer now and would be happy to volunteer. Is anyone doing this for the 90's? Contact me via email.
