Dwight Twilley Band : Looking For The Magic
With the help of Tom Petty on guitar, The Dwight Twilley Band recorded one of the great power pop gems of decade in "Looking For the Magic". It came off of Twilley Don't Mind, released on September 7, 1977. The song has achieved a new kind of notoriety thanks to its insistent use in a 2011 horror film called You're Next. Yes, that's Petty helping the band lip sync along to the song on a kids TV program called The W.A.C.K.O. Show
The early reviews were great for Twilley Don't Mind. Richard Cromelin of the L.A. Times wrote
Last week may be remembered as a landmark in rock's emergence with the debut of the Dwight Twilley Band. His vivid presence confirms the ability of simple familiar rock elements to remain perpetually fresh and invigorated. Twilley has all the right instincts and unmistakable charisma. One of the great winners for 1978!
Robert Christgau gave the album a B noting that this wasn't the debut.
