Rockland


Mr canadian bias homercat is at it again. Although this is the first time for this Canadian artist to make an appearance on Good Rockin' and way overdue. Kim Mitchell is a Canadian guitarist who was the lead singer and guitarist for the band Max Webster before going on to lead a solo career. In early 1985, the song "Go For Soda" from the Akimbo Alogo album became an international hit and remains his best known song outside of his native Canada. Rockland is the third solo album from Kim Mitchell. The album was released in 1989 and is certified double platinum in Canada. If anyone watches the Trailer Park Boys(and if you've never seen it you should check it out), In one episode Ricky played one of Mitchell's classic songs, "Go For Soda", on 8 track(ask your parents), while saying "Julian, let's get drunk and rock some fuckin' Mitchell." Couldn't have said it better myself. More good summer tuneage. A hard one to track down, one might have better luck with his greatest hits package.
