Old Dad's Records (The Failure Episode)
Episode 33 of Old Dad's Records is out now. My theme this time is failure. I start with "Tusk" by Fleetwood Mac, since the titular album did not make the expected sales marks after the success of Rumours. Thankfully there's been a critical reevaluation since. After that I dig into The Faces' A Nod Is As Good As A Wink... an album I tried and failed to write a book about for the 33 1/3 series. I end with a rave for Kurt Vile's newest album, which I am grooving to as I write this.
