Please forgive me Only the lonely

"This is far off as anyone could get as posting about a musical group/ artist as me. The Motels where in the 80's and where was I at then? Gee Okay just never really took in the group/ lyrics to enjoy as the regular bands, Go-Go's, Tears For Fears, Hall and Oates, Sheena Easton, Laura Branigan and the rest of the wonderful era in music. In 1985 my life changed and had other priorities that would come before my music and what I wanted. With a diaper bag,bottles and a bundle of joy along with a car seat there was only 1 piece of music that I bought until my baby got older and that was Do You by Sheena Easton. Now that I am much older and wiser than a teen living my world at 18 years of age and loving life to the fullest, little do I know now, I really missed a great group of music The Motels/ Martha Davis. I love Only the Lonely and enjoy hearing it sung to me 3 times a week by Jamie Perlow, she does a magnificent job of Martha as well as 80's music for me to relive my past of music that was my favorite. So now I have much to collect and listen to for Motels and Marthas cd's are now on my list. Does anyone know information on the 2 cds THIS and Beautiful Life both were to be released in 2008. Sorry if I hurt anyones feelings of being a fan, but the saying goes never to late. Please forgive me , any info of updates on the group/singer please contact me. I am interested in a concert. Thank you
The Best Motels CD

"This is easily the best Motels CD. Martha Davis's vocals are somewhat subdued and the music is more stark on this CD compared to the more lavish later albums, and it has an edge that the later albums lack. Martha as always is alternately pouty, sexy, even at times tragic. The dark and understated Celia is incredible as is the plaintive Total Control. Porn Reggae is a fun tune countered by Counting which hits the perfect pitch of desolation. Music from the 80's is often ridiculed, and some later Motels songs might deserve it, but this should be considered a classic CD by any measure. Get a copy and you'll see."
