Episode 99: Blondie - Eat to the Beat (1979) Part 2
It's somewhat hard for our hosts to believe, but it's true-- this is officially the last double-digit episode of the Permanent Record Podcast! Episode 99 finds Brian and Sarah continuing their discussion of Blondie's 1979 album, Eat to the Beat. They start off with a couple more reviews of the album itself before getting back into the track-by-track discussion.
Part 3 - Track by Track, continued
Part One of Eat to the Beat was running long, so our hosts only got around to talking about the first four songs on Side One before wrapping up. With a total of eight songs left, there's lots more music, vocals, lyrics, and videos to discuss; plus, there are a couple of Apple Podcast reviews to share as well. In amongst all the regular topics though, there's also talk of post apocalyptic night clubs, intestinal distress, the world's largest "jazz cigarette," two Talking Heads references, and something that resembles either an enormous Swanson's turkey pot pie, a drum head, or a crème brulée. And, it seems Brian has gone into withdrawal from not doing a "PRP 007 Mini-Broadcast" in so long, because he launches into "James Bond Movie Mode" for a brief time.

Part 4 - Extra Credit
In an unusual twist, the "Extra Credit" portion of this episode is not related to the album; instead, it's a reminder to please send in your music trivia questions to prptrivia at gmail.com for the upcoming Trivia Showdown episode.
Part 5 - Final Review and Rating
It then comes time for Brian and Sarah to give their final reviews and ratings for Eat to the Beat. They were both making very favorable comments for everything on Side One, but there were much more mixed reviews to be found on Side Two (and in some regards, that may be putting it mildly). Were there enough negative vibes generated to warrant low record-adapter ratings for the entire album from the hosts? The only way to find out is to listen to the end!
