Burnside Album Details
Heyman, Richard X., Heyman, Hoosier & Herman
The song "Hoosier" was recorded with Peter Noone (of Herman's Hermits fame) singing lead vocals and Richard playing drums, organ, and acoustic twelve-string guitar, and everyone singing along with Herman. "Hoosier" is a lost love ode to a first girlfriend. Richard first met Peter Noone when they were both both signed to Cypress Records in 1990. The recording remained unreleased until the realization struck that it deserved to be heard by pop aficionados everywhere and why not accompany it with worthy songs that had fallen by the wayside? Goldmine has called Heyman, Hoosier & Herman "easily a candidate for best (take your choice) a) album b) EP c) CD of (your choice again) 1) 2000 b) 2001 c) the whole damn new millennium. " Said Rollingstone.com, "these songs don't sound like outtakes, with hooks galore and ebullient melodies...revealing the emotional power that pop can pack into its brevity."
