Dwight Twilley Band: 'I'm On Fire' (Shelter SR 40380)

Marty Cerf, Phonograph Record, May 1975

FOR THE moment there are but two titles that have any meaning for me. One is 'Tell Her No' by Del Shannon. The other is the first release by the Dwight Twilley Band. 'I'm On Fire' is surely one of the most interesting pop releases I've come across since 'September Gurls' and 'When My Baby's Beside Me' by Alex Chilton and Big Star.
