Goal- to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period.
TODAY- LISTENED TO 9 DIFFERENT ALBUMS. TOTAL FOR 21 DAYS- 131 DIFFERENT ALBUMS. ON PACE FOR 2277 different albums.
- THE BEATLES: THE BEATLES [AKA- “THE WHITE ALBUM”}: 1968: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS.
- THE CHI-LITES: GREATEST HITS: 1992: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. They had 5 Top 40 hits in the early 1970’s- most famously “Oh Girl” and “Have You Seen Her?” My favorite Chi-Lites song is one that failed to crack the Top 40- “The Coldest Days Of My Life.”
- THE BEATLES: YELLOW SUBMARINE:1969. 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Only four new Beatles tracks on this soundtrack to the animated film. By far the Beatles album I spend the least amount of time with.
- DAVID &DAVID: WELCOME TO THE BOOMTOWN: 1986: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Their only album- the title song reached #37 on the Top 40. Reportedly working on the second album last year? Both David’s contributed to Sheryl Crow’s debut album.
- VAN MORRISON: A PERIOD OF TRANSITION: 1977. 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. This album isn’t as bad as its reputation. Coming 2 1/2 years after his last studio album a lot was expected and compared to his early to mid- 1970’s work this is kind of a step back- but still has its moments.
- MILES DAVIS: BIRTH OF THE COOL: 1957: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS.
- JAMES TAYLOR: BEST OF JAMES TAYLOR: 2003: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS.
- CAT STEVENS: THE VERY BEST OF CAT STEVENS: 2000. 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. 20 of Cat Stevens best tunes- listening to this always puts me in a good mood.
- MILES DAVIS: KIND OF BLUE: 1959. 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. The #1 best selling jazz album of all times.
