HASH(0xa320c1a4) out of 5 stars Great bonus material and cool liner notes July 27 2006
By Dorrie Wheeler - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Working Class Dog was the album that made Rick Springfield an international music star. True, Rick had released albums prior to Working Class Dog, but this was the release that set him into the pop music stratosphere. Working Class Dog has been re-released after 25 years--re-mastered and with bonus tracks. Working Class Dog includes Rick Springfield's most well known hit "Jessie's Girl." Other popular songs on the album include "I've Done Everything For You," and "Love Is Alright Tonite." The best part about this re-master (in addition to the songs sounding better than ever), is that included on the CD are three bonus tracks. "Easy To Cry," and the original version of "Taxi Dancing" which have not been released in the past are included. Also on the disc is the demo version of "Jessie's Girl." As for liner notes the CD includes extensive almost Q&A style album notes from Rick Springfield and people involved with the making of the album. Quite interesting reading I must say. Rick provides comments, some quite extensive for each song on the album. Also included is a reproduction of the handwritten lyrics for "Jessie's Girl."

If you owned the album before, pick up this new version. You will only love it more.

HASH(0xa36ceb34) out of 5 stars Excellant Remastering of a Classic April 10 2007
By Bradley Jacobson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Finally, this great and I mean that in all sincerity CD has been given the remaster treatment. I believe every album and cassette I owned in the early 80s should be given such a treatment, and I mean the kind of styling this album got not that schlock job Chrysalis did on my Benatar CDs. On top of all 10 glorious songs from this 1981 album, the powers that be (and Ricky boy included) conjured up the "Jessie's Girl" demo, and two other songs from his orignal demo including a rocking little ditty called "Easy To Cry" - the CD even has a song by song description by Rick and two of the producers Keith Olsen & Bill Drescher. I found out some interesting stuff like Keith was called in from his sessions on Pat Benatar's Crimes Of Passion to work on 2 songs for Working Class Dog, but because Pat's album was so important he could only do it on the weekends, of course he grabbed Pat's hubby Neil Geraldo and he played on a few of the songs, and "I've Done Everything For You" a Sammy Hagar penned tune was given to Rick by Keith because Miss Patty Patty declined it saying it was too macho. But that is all petty trivia compared to the pop/rock genius that is this album - the singles need no real explanation; "Jessie's Girl", "Love Is Alright Tonite", the aformentioned "I've Done.." were all roller skating staples when I was but a wee tyke - but the other tracks are so great as well - all 3 minute pop gems "Hole In My Heart" (though I'm stil partial to Lisa Hartman's faster cover), "Carry Me Away", the reggae twinged "Daddy's Pearl", hilarious "Everybody's Girl" (it isn't nice, no but they call you everybody's girl/ they say, here she comes, here she comes, here comes everybody's girl), the jam blues punch of "Red Hot & Blue Love" and the sinister but sexy "Inside Silvia." A great pick up and a great remaster.
HASH(0xa3568c84) out of 5 stars What if he'd treated Jessie's Girl on General Hospital? Feb. 24 2015
By TJJackson - Published on
It may be trite, but music really is the background of your life. Smells and songs are the best memory triggers in my eyes.
Which brings us to Mr. Springfield and "Working Class Dog." I don't know how many will remember, but Rick Springfield had a brief, recurring role on the soap opera "General Hospital." This was the time of Luke and Laura, when GH ruled the afternoons. It was a nearly daily ritual for my friends and I, we worked swing shift so this was a pre-work ritual: cook a little lunch, heavy on the herbs, watch GH, and head to work. When Springfield came on we would all shout, "Rick!"
Quite often the long trip downtown was filled with rapidly bobbing heads shouting, "I've done everything for you, you've nothin' for me." The Sammy Hagar cover was the first song on the cassette and it set the tone for the day. It might seem heresy to say it, but I think Rick did it better than the man in red. I can assure you, in homage to Sammy, we couldn't drive 55 either.
"Jessie's Girl" was one of those songs that people use as a touchstone for a time in their life. That fantastic opening riff, building slowly until everyone would shout "And she's watchin' him with those eyes/and she's lovin' him with that body I just know it" (voices cracking). I can't count how often all 5 of us would be singing at the top of our lungs screaming down I-10. Goosebumps, man.
Most significant is we were all Heavy Metal guys, two of us were in a reasonably successful metal band, but "Working Class Dog" was hidden in many a glove box; a secret pleasure.
So, take my advice if you want a trip down memory lane: GET THIS NOW! Click the button, do it, do it, do it.
HASH(0xa33e54b0) out of 5 stars This Is The Only Remastered Version And You Should Own It June 24 2013
By David P. Weber - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This LP is not widely available in remastered form and it should be. It was a blockbusting album which pre-dated the 'Thriller' flood of MTV-generated artists (Springfield had the looks but got hammered in the credibility stakes).

'Jesse's Girl', with its solo by Pat Benatar's guitarist, is an Eighties classic which can still be heard on the radio somewhere every day. Many of a certain generation reckon that because of this, Springfield is a one-hit wonder.

Yet there are heaps of songs here that got airplay at the time; Springfield's sound surfed the edge of AOR bands like Journey and new wavers like The Knack.

It's a guilty pleasure, sure. But it's also as honest as rock music got during this weird post-disco year (this side of Springsteen).

And Springfield's commitment is sure.

A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I remember when I was a kid, my dad had this on cassette, and I picked it up and listened to it, I loved it. See, I am only 22, and I like this tape, and hopefully, I will be able to own this on cd one day. I like music like REO Speedwagon, Journey, 38 specail, Van Zant, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Billy Ray Cyrus and so much country music. Not the older country stuff. Hank Williams Jr is as old as I get when it comes to country and the early 90's. But yeah, this is definantly a great cd. Seems like it had alot of potential back then. I know Jessie's girl was a hit.
