Anyone pick this up?  It pretty much sounds like you would expect Huey Lewis and the News to sound, in my opinion.  Classic 80s radio rock, a cover song, and several really cool tracks.  Too bad it's only an EP, and likely the last thing the band will ever record.  Most people thought THIS record would never happen, so who knows.  The bonus disc of classic HL&TN tracks is pretty cool, too.

I am not usually much of a fan but was curious and checked some of it out.  It's a bit derivative but very well done.  The rhythm section in particular is superb. It all sounds way better than one would reasonably expect after all this time.

I just checked out clips.  He has lost the rock edge that were on a lot of the older stuff in favor of a more R&B feel.  I know he always flirted around with those styles, too, but it seems that the heart of rock n' roll has flatlined.

I LOVE "Sports".  IMO it is a it's a perfect LP. I can and still do listen to tracks one through nine.  It also has my fav HL song on it.

This is good stuff but fairly mellow.  Love the cross harp on "Her love..." and I love the brass and winds.  I don't think I'll be purchasing any of the songs right now, but that can may change.  

Btw, it doesn't sound like his voice has lost much with age, IMO.

Huey has Menaire's disease so this is probably their last go round.

Without the rock edge, he’s completely crossed over into Hall & Oats territory. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing... I like a fair amount of that 80’s “blue eyed soul” stuff.
