Warren Zevon's self-titled 1976 album announced he was one of the most striking talents to emerge from the Los Angeles soft rock singer/songwriter community, and Linda Ronstadt (a shrewd judge of talent if a sometimes questionable interpreter) recorded three of its songs on two of her biggest-selling albums, which doubtlessly earned Zevon bigger royalty checks than the album itself. Musically, most of Excitable Boy is stuck in a polished but unexceptional FM pop groove, and only "Veracruz" hints at the artful intelligence of Warren Zevon's finest moments. It's hard to say if Zevon was feeling uninspired or just dumbing himself down when he made Excitable Boy, but while it made him famous, it lacks the smarts and substance of his best work.

Excitable Boy is the third album by Warren Zevon, released in 1978. It includes the top 40 hit "Werewolves of London. It is the highest-selling album of Zevon's career.

Excitable boy. 1LP. In. Excitable Boy is the third album by Warren Zevon, released in 1978. It includes the top 40 success "Werewolves of London", featuring Mick Fleetwood on drums and John McVie on bass. The album brought Warren to commercial attention and remains the best-selling album of his career. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Produced by Jackson Browne. The tracks "Excitable Boy" and "Werewolves of London" were considered macabrely humorous by some critics. The historical "Veracruz" dramatizes the United States occupation of Veracruz, and likewise "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" is a fictionalization of a mercenary in Africa. Lawyers, Guns and Money" is a tongue-in-cheek take on Cold War paranoia.
