40 Year Itch: Listen To What I'm Saying

Mr Miracle

   The 1975 cover of Jet's Roy Thomas Baker produced debut album features Mr Miracle, a character directly lifted from DC Comics.  Yes, the record label would get sued for that. (Did nobody hear the story about Icarus ? )  "Start Here" is the opening track and the second song from that quirky proto New Wave album to be featured this year on 1001 Songs.  "Tittle-Tattle" is another winner . Really, I can't get enough of Jet.
