Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period of time.
TODAY-LISTENED TO 4 DIFFERENT ALBUMS- TOTAL 24 DAYS 145 DIFFERENT ALBUMS, ON PACE FOR 2205 DIFFERENT ALBUMS.
- FRANK SINATRA: SINGS FOR ONLY THE LONELY: 1958: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Frank is back with Nelson Riddle as his arranger after a two album absence. Both called this their finest album they did together.
- THE BEATLES: LET IT BE: 1970: 4 OUT OF 5 STARS. The last Beatles album released. I still maintain it was a good idea they called it a day- at the right moment.
- VAN MORRISON: INTO THE MUSIC: 1979: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. One of the best albums of 1979. Bob Dylan’s “Slow Train Coming” came out in the same time period and got all the attention but Van’s album I believe is better- a lot less preachy.
- ELLA FITZGERALD: KEN BURNS JAZZ: 2000. 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Ella born 100 year ago today- 4.25.
