Scott-- I bought a cheapo used version of it on cd awhile back. Never got the album way back. For some reason, that Paradise...tune annoyed me way back, even tho you couldn't escape it on radio OR in every club/bar you went to. Def a iconic track from those times,along with 2-3 other songs on there. But I likely just was so burned out from hearing it constantly that I stayed away from ever getting it. I'm thinking someone loaned it to me way back and I never cared for the rest of the album,so it remained a lost classic to me. This all said-- I wasn't blown away even by the time I DID get the cd. But I liked it better than when it actually came out. Hadn't ever really heard much else by him all these long years,tho I knew he was releasing stuff every so often. Just one of those artists I never bothered with but liked his voice--weird I guess. i've got both Hel In A handbasket and BOOH II right now from the library,so I'll check 'em out more in depth a.s.a.p. Also heard a bit of the 3rd one and it does seem a bit heavier. I may get his 'Couldn't Have Said It Better' cd. Heard most of that on y-tube and liked it quitea bit,tho it seems a bit ballad heavy. One of the things I'm really digging from his later ones is the awesome oroduction. He's one artist that needs that immense sonic sound to make his material really shine. Lots going on in most every track. So the older stuff might not appeal to me on those grounds alone-not being anywhere near as great sonically. T
