    For the first time, I just heard...

    ...When the Hammer Falls on a local radio station!
    Had the radio on by chance, doing some clean-up, when they mention something of VH and Sammy. All I expected was the usual Why Can' t This be Love or perhaps Dreams, when they kicked in When the Hammer Falls. Very cool. Hadn't listened to that record in a long time, and have never heard it played on radio...

    And after that, the radio jock put on I Can't Drive 55, and, to even it out for the Dave fans: And the Cradle Will Rock.

    Really surprised me as you usually get WCTBL or Jump. Just wanted to share, as there is now at least one radio station I know of, that plays good music.

    One of the best, mostly-forgotten Sammy songs. I think it'd be stronger with a remastering or possibly a re-recording with either the Wabos or the Foot.

    My second favorite tune on INSG. "Returning Home" is so epic to me, despite the cheesy keyboards.

    INSG isn't my favorite Sam album, but I don't hate it. It has some really great tracks on it. The only sleepers for me are Back Into You and Privacy.

    He played "Hammer" live in Atlantic City in 2004. It sounded pretty good. I haven't listened to that disk in years. I may have to go dust it off.

    "When the hammer falls" kicked arse when he played it in australia in '98. Its still today my fave concert of all time. it was at the palace, in melbourne, he played like, 27 songs. he was just non - stop.
