Back In Action: New Album From Ron Nagle

Long, long ago Ron Nagle recorded an album, Bad Rice, that is one of the lost gems of the early ’70s. That album was produced by Jack Nitzsche and Tom “Big Daddy” Donahuea, featured Beau Brummel Sal Valentino on back-up vocals and Ry Cooder on guitar. It’s excellent.

Now, after a long absence, Nagle is back. He’s got a new album, Spread The Love, and this is the title track.

Note: This video is quite ridiculous, but the song is cool.
