Listology: Runaway Sun Choose Their Favorite Album Covers

On today's Listology hot seat are up-and-coming local blues-rockers Runaway Sun, whose CD release party for debut full-length The Bridge is Saturday night at the Continental Club with Clory Martin. Perhaps wisely, the quartet chose to list their favorite album covers instead of "List Bands You Do Not Like" or "List the Saddest Songs in the World."

I'm gonna go with Elvis Presley, Elvis Presley. It's a great and legendary cover that helped the King explode onto the scene. It's still exciting to see and it was done in '56. The best part - the picture is from a live show. No planned photo session. It's rock, it's blues, it's country, but it's explosive, exciting and new.
