Tex Rubinowitz, Hot Rod Man




This audio rip is from my vinyl LP of Tex Rubinowitz, "Hot Rod Man".
This album smokes from begining to end. If you like your rock and roll with hot guitars, great singing and flat out awesome good time lyrics, then give this LP from 1986 a shot. A great artist from the DC area music scene of the late 70's and mid 80's. Anyone around in those days knows how cool the music scene was way back when.

01 - HOT ROD MAN
02 - FLOOD OF LOVE
03 - FEELIN' RIGHT TONIGHT
04 - ROCK N ROLL IVY
05 - BAD BOY
06 - MISSY ANN
07 - AIN'T IT WRONG
08 - NO ONE LEFT TO TURN TO
09 - NO (NO WOLF)

Nice article about Tex from 1987:

I called my friend Lenny and asked him to go see Tex at some bar in Silver Spring. It was a week day. I got drunk and went up to Tex and asked him to play, "Feeling Right Tonite.'' Tex broke right into it. A special moment from the past. Thanks

Ahh, The Hot Rod Man! Thanks for posting this -- I'd have to pull out my copy to be sure, but I think Track 9 is actually named "No Club (Lone Wolf)". I used to work at a music store near Tex's home and got to know him a bit -- what a great and genuine guy. Thanks again!

This is so amazing! I've been on the hunt for this since I heard The Planet Rockers' version of 'Lone Wolf' and Go Cat Go's version of 'Hot Rod Man'.
Thank you so, so much for putting that up!!

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
