Great Power Pop from the end of the seventies! The Sweat - No More Running (1978-80), 2007 (FLAC & mp3)
I use the review of spavid of the wonderful 'Wilfully Obscure' blog. If you don't know the blog look here
Sonically, the fidelity on No More Running dangles towards the "lo" end of the spectrum, oozing warm, analogue hues that couldn't be replicated in this day and age no matter how much effort was put forth to do so. In short, this is power pop as it used to be made, and Culbertson happens to be an immensely unheralded practitioner of the medium. The 2007 reissue on the Japanese 1977 imprint includes seven bonus cuts, including four from Clive's precursor act No Sweat. Additional material from this era was also committed to tape under his own name, and is available on a separate release that I can hopefully attend to later (and you shouldn't have to wait a whole 'nother year to partake in it).(by Spavid, Dec, 2016)
This is great fun,
