Cost of Love

Greatly Appreciated


But for sheer “what-were-they-thinking” wonderment, it is hard to top the name the Cretones; who knows how much more success they could have had with a less cringe-worthy name.  They got a recording contract with Planet Records and released a very good debut album, Thin Red Line in 1980.  Linda Ronstadt was so impressed with the album that she covered three of their songs:  the title cut “Mad Love” for her 1980 new-wave album, Mad Love plus “Justine” and “Cost of Love”.
