Street Talk is 35 years old this month

Steve Perry Oh Sherrie Street Talk 35 years oldOne of the first MTV videos that absolutely transfixed me was Steve Perry’s “Oh Sherrie” from the album Street Talk. The album was released in April 1984, 35 years ago. It remains one of my favorite songs, as cheesy as it may be.

Marc Tyler Nobleman caught up with Sherrie Swafford, Perry’s old girlfriend, while researching a piece about the girls of Journey‘s “Separate Ways” video. Swafford sent him a brief response, but declined a full interview. You can read it on the Noblemania blog.

Is Street Talk in your collection? If not, buy it!

P.S. — Perry also released a brand new album in October last year called Traces.
