ON THE CHARTS:
Mary Fahl’s Can’t Get It Out of My Head Lands at #5 of Doc Krieger’s 2022 Top 20 Albums
Dec. 15, 2022
The album title alludes to the ELO song she does and also the fact that these cover versions are generally all songs you have in your brain from years of listening (if you are old like me). By far my fave cover here is of the Neil Young After The Gold Rush song “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”. That highlights not only Mary’s amazing voice, but also the instrumental prowess of Mark Doyle. Since leaving October Project, this for me is her strongest solo album. Great covers abound like “Ruby Tuesday”, “Beware Of Darkness” and “Got A Feelin’”, an obscure Mamas & Papas track from their first album that is haunting.
