If you haven't seen the Atomic Tom video where they play an entire song on the subway, you need to see it. Great fun!

Jim_sullivan-ufo-side1 Have you ever heard of Jim Sullivan? Me neither...

Sullivan released his debut album, U.F.O., in 1969 and played to devoted crowds at a regular gig in Malibu, Calif., in the early '70s. Despite hanging out with movie stars, fame eluded him. In 1975, he left Los Angeles, and his wife and son, to head to Nashville; he thought he could catch a break there. But Sullivan never made it to Tennessee — somewhere in the New Mexico desert, he disappeared, never to be seen again. Now,U.F.O. has been reissued...

Some dude saw the unknown album on eBay, picked it up and it's out there again. You can now get U.F.O. on Amazon. I've probably heard it four times now and really enjoy it.

The mysterious nature of his disappearance is amplified by Jim Sullivan's cryptic lyrics — on U.F.O., he talks about long highways, leaving his family behind and being abducted by aliens in the desert.

Fascinating. I enjoy the album without the story, but it adds to the mystery. Go check out the samples. I think you'll dig it. Listen to the All Things Considered segment. Here's more on the story...

Here's "Jerome"...
