1. It's O.K. - 457 (10)
2. Had to Phone Ya - 425 (7)
3. Just Once in My Life - 376.5 (10)
4. Susie Cincinnati - 370.5 (3)
5. Back Home - 368 (2)
6. That Same Song - 346.5 (2)
7. In the Still of the Night - 272.5
8. Palisades Park - 269.5
9. Rock and Roll Music - 252
10. Chapel of Love - 249.5
11. Blueberry Hill - 201
12. Talk to Me - 189.5 (1)
13. T.M. Song - 184 (1)
14. Everyone's in Love with You - 183.5
15. A Casual Look - 175

My thoughts?  Still don't quite get the love for That Same Song, but I might only dock it a couple spots.  I maintain that the album version of Rock and Roll Music is awful and should be much closer to the bottom.  Conversely, I'm surprised at how low Talk to Me ended up being.  Everything else pretty much makes sense in my mind.

Bump.  Hope that's okay.

The album has grown on me with many repeated listens.  I don't think the average music fan will recognize the BW touches on these songs.  It's all in the details!

Ranking from best to wreck IMO:
1. It's OK - The original mix is awesome!  I love Mike's lead, the sax, the drums, and the harmonies!
2. Chapel of Love - I love this tune.  Plain, simple, and perhaps a bit manic.  Brian's vocal commands here.  Even though he had laryngitis, he really hit it home here.  I sense so many emotions in his vocal: sadness, desperation, depression, mania, and not giving a flying surfboard about it.
3. Just Once in My Life - Masterful synth-work.  Brian makes a great attempt at Spector production.  His and Carl's vocal make the song beautiful.  The switching of lyrics is a smart choice.
4. Palisades Park - I like Carl's vocal and the beat this song provides for me.
5. Blueberry Hill - That tack piano and those bells are outstanding, as well as the saxes in the beginning.
6. Everyone's in Love With You - I like the production here, and I actually enjoy this song.  It's one of Mike's calmest leads.
7. TM Song - I don't like the talking interlude.  I would rather hear the music and it could be longer.  I love the bells and the guitars.
8. In the Still of the Night - I like Brian's falsetto.  I like Dennis' vocal, but the production seems rushed and sparse.
9. Talk to Me - I get jarred with the sudden switch in song.  Carl's lead is calm, but not my favorite.
10. Back Home - I like the production of his live performances better than this one.  The vocal is soulful in my opinion.  Brian was giving his all here, and I enjoy it.
11. Had to Phone Ya - Don't get me wrong, the song is great, but the hastily added drums overtake the production so much that they distract from those strings.
12. Rock and Roll Music - I like the MiC mix so much better than this rushed mix.
13. That Same Song - The gospel version makes this song look sparse in comparison.
14. Susie Cincinnati - Breaks the flow of this album as well, and it does not belong here.
15. A Casual Look - Breaks the flow of the album IMO, Mike's vocal ruins the enjoyment of this sparse mess.
