"Was L.A. cooler back then?" Surely a rhetorical blog post

This LA Times writer poses the question. If it's not a self-evident answer, I don't know what is, even if I haven't been there for six years or so. He got his hands on the Rhino Records box set "Where The Action Is". So should you and me.

the answer is yes, but really, saying "and a noisy rock rendition of "Last Night I Had a Dream" by Randy Newman recorded long before he became a more cerebral pop satirist" just blew Goldstein's credibility for me.

Mr Newman was not 'cerebrally' deficient at any time. Right from his first eponymous LP he had the goods.
