BREAKAWAYS, THE: Walking Out on Love (The Lost Sessions): CD

After the end of The Nerves, Paul Collins and Peter Case started a new outfit. Previously only two songs were ever made available to the masses via a Bomp compilation. Now from the archives comes this thirteen-song release. Only three songs look to repeat from the recent Nerves CD. This sounds like a band trying to find its sound, but it really does not matter since both Paul and Peter are such fantastic songwriters. A revolving door of almost members completes the lineup here. But as quickly as it started, it ended. Case went to start The Plimsouls and the Paul Collins Beat was born. If you like even one song from either outfit, then you need this too.
