Hip-o Loves Lofgrin

leave a comment »

A late announcement for readers: Hip-o Select has begun taking pre-orders for another reissue from Nils Lofgren.

Since 2007, the label has been remastering and reissuing the solo works of Lofgren, of course best known as one of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band members for the past quarter-century. Thus far, his original band Grin’s final LP, Gone Crazy (1973) and solo efforts Nils Lofgren (1975), Back It Up!! Live-An Authorized Bootleg (1975) and Cry Tough (1976) – all originally released on the A&M label, have been put back into print by Hip-o Select.

That reissue trend continues with I Came to Dance (1977), a solid pop-rock effort featuring a cover of “Happy,” from The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main St., as well as contributing vocal turns from R&B singers Patti Austin and Luther Vandross.

The usual pre-order link is here, and the track list can be read after the jump.
