Cheap Trick- Essential Best pt2- Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen

When Cheap Trick’s “The Flame” from Lap of Luxury smoldered its way to the #1 slot on Billboard in July 1988, it capped over a decade of relentless touring and some of my favorite albums, wonderfully anthologized by the Essential double disc. Lifers Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen were basking in the glow of “The Flame” when they joined me In the Studio. -Redbeard
