    One of my favorites. Really underrated catalog and writer. It's cool how he would give away songs he wrote.

    It worked out well for him. Linda Ronstadt brought his work attention he could never have gotten alone.

    My soft spot for "The Hula Hula Boys" grows exponentially all the time.

    That is a good reminder that I need to give those ‘80s records starting with The Envoy more play.

    The Envoy is probably his weakest, but even his off records have some staple songs. He never really missed.

    Yeah, there are definitely zero misses. Dude was such a prolific writer. It just gets easy to go through the same few albums since there is so much in his discography.

    One of my favorites for no other reason than its simplicity.

    Werewolves of London is and always will be a tremendous song.
