It’s our annual New Year’s First Impressions Friday Feature today spotlighting tracks from the greatest debut albums in rock history.
Of course, the traditional construction of a long player (look it up), begins with a single called a single.
(Ironically, it usually has two songs on it.)
Here’s some good starters from days gone by:
A disturbing but propulsive number about a World War II villain. (Later New Order.)
Everybody wants to break through to the other side but not tonight.
Chuck Berry gets the Stones started. (He was uncooperative.)
Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup did it first, but the King made it his own.
They went back to the Who for the next single, “I Can’t Explain”.
