I didn’t get this one until later in my adolescence than I should have, but I don’t think its impact was diminished too much by that. “Dirty Back Road” is one of my absolute all-time-favorite B’s tracks, and god knows I can always shake a bad mood with “Strobe Light” or “Devil in My Car.” But I wish they’d printed the lyrics to this album with the CD release!
