388 – Marshall Crenshaw – Reissue of Classic Album, #447

Marshall Crenshaw’s 40 plus-year career has included ten studio albums, a US top 40 hit in 1982 with “Someday, Someway,” some collaborations, and some movie appearances. 

Crenshaw recently regained the rights to several albums he released originally on the Razor & Tie label.  We talked to him in 2020 for the first in that series, Miracle of Science. 

Now comes the reissue of #447.  The eleven-song album is arguably one of his most adventurous, and is augmented by two newly-recorded tracks, issued on his own Shiny Tone label.

He talks about his struggles with major labels and how being on a smaller one gave him the freedom to do the things he really wanted to do. He also gives us a preview of Deluxe Editions of his first two albums, coming later in the fall.
