DICKIES: Dawn of the Dickies: CD

The second album from these guys, and this one was apparently long out of print as well. This one’s a little slower than their debut and the production is a little less abrasive, but there’s still a plethora of great tracks to savor here as well: “Fan Mail,” Manny, Moe and Jack,” “Nights in White Satin,” Infidel Zombie,” et al. Some more B-sides are included, as well as lyrics to the songs, although I’m kinda leery about their accuracy, ’cause the line “I got a pair of khakis and a Pendleton” in “I’m a Chollo (sic)” has been transcribed to something about a van. Still, this is no less mandatory than their first album.
