Album 365: Day 106 - The Firm - The Firm

The Firm
The Firm

Favorite tracks: Closer, Radioactive, Satisfaction Guaranteed
Sleeper tracks: You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling, Midnight Moonlight

My parents purchased this album pretty close to the release date.  Having a household of Zeppelin fans, we gobbled up anything associated with the band.  "Radioactive" got a lot of radio play but my favorite songs were "Satisfaction Guaranteed" and "Closer".  The band line up was pretty great and Tony Franklin's fretless bass sound was something I never heard before.  It gets old by the end of this record but I do like the sound on some songs.

"Midnight Moonlight" was a Zeppelin song that was re-worked for this record.  I'm glad it never made it as a Zep release because it's pretty lackluster.
