Chris Stamey – Instant Excitement ep (1984, Coyote)

To our credit, we got to this one before The dB’s Repercussions blog did!  Yes, I’ll be patting myself on this one for some time to come, but per usual, I digress.  I had no idea this was out there until I stumbled upon this copy a few years ago.  Right out of the starting gate, “Excitement” announces itself as one of the finest things Decibel Chris Stamey has offered outside of his renown band (dBs, duh) rocking out in a forward thinking, Let’s Active and Game Theory vein, furthermore sounding every bit like the Don Dixon production that it is.  Easily the highlight on Instant Excitement, you’ll still want to stay seated for the remainder, including a straight up but effective reading of “Instant Karma,” and the lengthy but alluring acousti-ballad, “Something Came Over Me.”  The meandering instrumental “Ghost Story” strikes me as album filler, but evidently not to Stamey, who went to the trouble of subtitling it nearly ten times (way too much for me to type out – go here to view).  The end of side two yields an unlisted track, a country tune, “The Wild Side of Life,” that was apparently written/recorded by Willie Nelson (per a lyric search).  Moreover, the tune is definitely not sung by Stamey nor credited to anyone.  Anybody have a clue?
