Album Time for a Witness. Come on, everybody, come along Don't know where we're going or how long Watch out for the things along the way Careful don't get bitten by the road (?) Take me there Take me away Take me there. Going to a party on the lawn Leaving in the morning one by one Would it really matter anyway? Would you really miss them when they're gone? Take me there Take me away Take me there Take me away.
These reissues from the Feelies train a new lens on the band's late middle period, when they honed their caffeinated energy, settling gracefully into their signature sound. It's still difficult to imagine the Feelies in the rising fury of late '80s alt-mania. They never quite fit in, the boys and girl with perpetual nervousness from Haledon, New Jersey who'd influenced members of . and Yo La Tengo in the late '70s before dissolving into a blaze of homespun spinoffs.
The Good Earth is the second album by American alternative rock band The Feelies. It was released in 1986 on Coyote Records, six years following their debut album Crazy Rhythms. The original LP was contained in a sleeve designed by Glenn Mercer, featuring a front cover photo of the band by bassist Brenda Sauter and a back cover photo by John Baumgartner with coloring by Sauter. The 2009 digital version included covers of Neil Young's "Sedan Delivery" and The Beatles "She Said, She Said.
The Feelies’ fourth album Time For A Witness (1991) found the band honing their sound and getting a bit heavier, anticipating the grunge-era that Nirvana would herald in in six months after this album was released. A cover of the Stooges Real Cool Time and their own excellent alt-radio hit Doin’ It Again are stand outs. New Jersey indie-rock heroes the Feelies issued 4 albums between 1980 and 1991 before calling it a day. This is the 4th of those albums, coming three years after their brilliant "Only Life" album. Invitation" is another REM-reminding tune. What She Said" pushes hard, with a bluesy feeling to it.
