Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes - Love Is A Sacrifice (1980)

Restless heart...


Released in 1980


1. Why
2. Love When It's Strong
3. Goodbye Love
4. Murder
5. Keep Our Love Simple
6. Restless Heart
7. Why Is Love Such A Sacrifice
8. On The Beach
9. Long Distance
10. It Hurts                                            

Pretty difficult to get hold of this album these days, which is a shame as it is one of Southside's best "non Van Zandt/Springsteen" albums.

Dating from 1980, highlights are "Restless Heart", "Why", "Love When It's Strong", "On The Beach", "Why Is Love Such A Sacrifice" and the beautiful, soulful "Long Distance".

Musically, it is the usual attack of horns and Southside's gin-soaked bluesy voice. Some good saxophone solos on it too. Springsteen fans will be interested to know that future E Street Band vocalists Patti Scialfa and Soozie Tyrell appear on this album as backing vocalists.
