Editors’ Notes

Brownsville Station may have been less confrontational than their Ann Arbor peers in The MC5, but their second album, A Night on the Town, shows that what they lacked in fury they made up for in versatility. Here they dabble in country (“I Got Time”), power pop (“Mad for Me”), and Southern rock (“Country Flavor”), playing it all with a wonderfully ragged, lived-in feeling. At their heart, though, Brownsville Station remained a roaring Michigan rock outfit, as evidenced by the brashness of “Wanted (Dead or Alive),” “Leavin’ Here,” and the incendiary closer, “The Man Who Wanted More (Saints Rock & Roll).”

A Buried Treasure

Brownsville Station’s 1972 release “A Night On The Town” is one of those buried treasures, you’ll want to discover. Sure it’s nothing but lightweight good time rockin’ music, but the boys know the limits of their talents and don’t try to push the envelope. A song like “Rock With The Music” is a celebration of the music that the band loves so much. On the other hand a song such as “Mister Robert” is as stickin’ it to the man, song as I’ve ever heard. Social commentary, no. Teenage rebellion, yes. Other stand out tracks are “Wanted (Dead Or Alive)” “Lovin’ Lady Lee”, “Country Flavor”, “I Got Time” and “Jonah’s Here To Stay” are just good enough to make this album work. Bottom line: this is a good record, not great, with polished and energetic performances and passionate vocals. This is a blue collar house rockin’ music of the first order.

Has that "never die" thing in rock.

This band was GREAT live when they did these songs! Tony Driggins is still one of the most rockinist bass players ever! This album doesn’t quite capture the true heavy sound they had---but it’s close enough---and it’s still quite good. I dig it!
