Song ID: The Hot Dogs – “Say What You Mean” (1973)

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

r-1838740-1346453122-3901

The Hot Dogs were Ardent label mates with Big Star. But when I bought this in my teens from a used record bin, I hadn’t yet heard of Big Star, so I thought the album might sound like a lesser Brewer and Shipley. It ended up winning me over from the start with its opening title track – an epic pop rock ballad that you’d swear features some of the strings and woodwinds the liner notes credit to Memphis State University, even though the track doesn’t.

“Time was when the harmonica was something the Tom Sawyers of America carried around in their pockets, along with a jackknife and rabbit’s foot. Nothing much has happened to jackknives and rabbits’ feet, but the harmonica has come a long, long way.” (liner notes)
