Smart Ass Mitch Ryder to stream in hi-fi, or to download in True CD Quality on Qobuz. This spare, but no less indistinguishable, album from Ryder's catalog of forgotten '80s albums isn't as awful as most of them. Ryder sounds a little bit enthused here, and his band - perhaps inspired by the guy who signs their checks - follows suit. But spotting good songs is still tough.

Mitch Ryder (b. William S. Levise, J. February 26, 1945) is an American musician who has recorded more than two dozen albums over more than four decades. Ryder is noted for his gruff, wailing singing style and his dynamic stage performances. He was influenced by his father, a musician. As a teenager, Ryder sang backup with a black soul-music group known as the Peps, but racial animosities interfered with his continued presence in the group.
