For an artist who first gained success as a songwriter with superstars like The Turtles, Linda Ronstadt, and Jackson Browne, Warren Zevons own acclaimed recordings proved to be a major force on the music scene for many decades. His music transcended all genres of rock and pop music styles, fusing melodic landscapes with thought provoking and somewhat controversial lyrical content during his successful reign on the album and radio charts.
After reaching platinum heights with his very popular Excitable Boy LP (FRMLP9006), his amazing follow-up album Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School hit the rock charts again thanks to the remake of The Yardbirds classic A Certain Girl as well as his smash collaboration with Bruce Springsteen on Jeannie Needs a Shooter.
The twelve track masterpiece is loaded with some even more time honored Warren Zevon classics like the rockers Play It All Night Long, Wild Age and Junglework, as well as melodic ballads like Empty-Handed Heart featuring his superstar friend Linda Ronstadt on vocals, plus his collaboration with T-Bone Burnett on Bed of Coals.
The Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School sessions featured the musical talents of not only Warren Zevon but his superstar friends like Jackson Browne, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Don Felder from The Eagles, David Lindley, J.D. Souther and the aforementioned songstress Linda Ronstadt.
