T op 10 Tasty Surprises From Schmilsson's Fridge:

1. The Coconut Song.
2. Jump Into The Fire, which is like putting Joe Jackson into a time machine and transporting him back to 1971.
3. Testing out your CD player's "skip" button on Without You.
4. The opening Gotta Get Up, which is like listening to Billy Joel’s early stuff without the guilt.
5. A poster of Harry Nilsson in a bathrobe.
6. Learning there's a Richard Perry-produced album that runs rings around Ringo.
7. The pleasure of rediscovering one of the the greatest singer/songwriter albums from one of the greatest singer/songwriters of the Seventies (which was the singer/songwriter generation). Singer/songwriter.
8. A real sweet version of "Let The Good Times Roll."
9. If you buy the RCA Dynaflex elpee (like I did), you can always use the elpee as a coaster. A really thin, stinky coaster with no dynamic range.
10. You'll never hear the word "crap" sung any better.
