    Any Kim Mitchell fans out there (besides me and YankeeRose)? Yankee and I were commenting on Kim Mitchell being a Canadian thing, just wondering if anyone else is aware of him at all?

    Lots of great tunes like Patio Lanterns, Go For Soda, Alana Loves Me, All We Are, I Am A Wild Party, Easy To Tame (love that song).

    Go for Soda is a cool tune! When I worked at a local radio station that tune was on a "cart", which is a professional format a lot like the 8-Tracks.

    When the CD players were screwed up, I would grab that tune!!!!!!

    When "Go For Soda" was current it got pretty good play on whatever the local radio station wherever I was - I believe it was while I was still in Maine, so it would've been WHEB in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. But that's all I know of Kim Mitchell!

    Glenn, you are speaking my language. Kim Mitchell is great. He is one of my all-time favorites. I have always loved his stuff. Got hooked with "Go For Soda" back in 1985 and have been a loyal fan since. It's hard to keep up with him way down here in sunny Arizona, but thank God for the internet.

    What do you think of his latest release, "Kimosabe"? I read on a KM message board somewhere, some of his fans were disappointed, but I thought it was a great album. It was a really personal album for him being just fresh off a divorce and all.

    I have always enjoyed Kim's lyrics as well. Actually, I guess for a long time Pye Dubois wrote most of the lyrics for him.

    One of these days I am gonna have to actually go to Canada and catch one of his shows. Last time I was in Buffalo, NY, I missed his show by 3 days. I last saw him open up for Bryan Adams in '85.

    I think it's really good album.
    I wasn't dissapointed in it at all, it was better than I expected it to be! My favorites on that album are Skinny Buddah, Kimosabe and Blow Me A Kiss. What songs did you like the best rxman?

    Where is the Kim Mitchell board you were talking about? I can't even find one site on him.

    Here's a couple of websites for Kim.

    http://www.cam.org/~gwhite/rockland/
    http://www.kim-mitchell.com/

    My favorite songs from his new one are "Monkey Shine" (love the lyrics), "Stickin My Heart", "Kimosabe" and "Skinny Buddah".

    Thanks a TON rxman!

    The first Link didn't work, but the secound one did.

    I like Stickin Out My Heart and Monkey Shine too. I saw Kim Mitchell live in Sept, 99 right before his new album came out...No Skinny Buddah for Yankee. LOL!

    It was still great though, Big Smoke sounded the best live! I love that song!!!

    You must be the only guy in Arizona that is a Kim Mitchell fan. Do they sell his albums there in stores?

    There you go Jimmy!
    Kim has a ton of other great songs other than Go For A Soda!
    It's too bad that they never played them in the U.S.

    Go For Soda is a cool song, Battle Scar (Max Webster + Rush) is awesome.

    I'm not sure I've ever heard any songs of his, do you think that's impossible?

    Tell me his most popular and I'll download it.
    Then I can tell you if I'm a fan

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>He's Canadian, so that's probably why you haven't heard of him. Download a song called Go For Soda, I'll bet you'll recognize it.
