Shopping for a Dog

First they were “The Units.”  Then they were “Fear of Strangers.”  A great band that almost made it: Val Haynes, Steve Cohen, Todd Nelson and Al Kash.  There’s not much of a trace of them now, even on the Internet where the collective memory doesn’t reach back to the early eighties very well.  Their legacy is a single album released by a now defunct label, a photo album by Dave Suarez, and this vintage video I found at youtube.  It’s dated but they once  OWNED Albany and they helped me get through the first years of the Reagan administration.

    My sister used to go to all their shows. And I grew up listening to them. I have been searching for their album. These videos are great. However it just makes me want their songs even more.

    Over the years and after multiple moves, I lost my original copy. About three years ago, I contacted the Blue Note Record Shop in Albany and they had an original sealed copy.

    I keep searching – eventually I have to find it.
