#137 – The Evil One by Roky Erickson

It confusing sometimes, when discovering new music via Spotify.  They don’t really care at all about having accurate and detailed credits or even album release dates.  Roky Erickson came to my attention the other night as I went down a Wikipedia rabbit hole and when I started listening to The Evil One this evening, I was surprised that this album, listed with a 2013 release date, sounded so much like some hard rock from the 70s and 80s.  Of course, now I know that makes perfect sense as the actual release date was in 1981.  I realize not everybody cares about such things, but for my purposes, it would be handy to have more complete information, or at the very least the correct year of release.  We all have different priorities during these trying times and I fully recognize how lame it is for me to expend any energy considering such insignificant details, but we all need our daily dose of righteous indignation and today this is mine.
