Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period.
TODAY- LISTENED TO 7 DIFFERENT ALBUMS. TOTAL FOR 31 DAYS 188 DIFFERENT ALBUMS. ON PACE FOR 2214.
- CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL: WILLY AND THE POORBOYS: 1969: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. More great CCR from the late 60’s- included on this one their greatest song “Fortunate Son.”
- ELVIS COSTELLO AND THE ATTRACTIONS: PUNCH THE CLOCK: 1983: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. EC had his first hit in America with “Everyday I Write The Book” on this album. Best tune on the album “Shipbuilding.”
- ELVIS COSTELLO AND THE ATTRACTIONS: GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD: 1984: 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. EC has called this the worst album of his career. It is the first one that upon purchasing I didn’t play to death.
- THE BEATLES: 1967-70: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Listening to the Red and Blue best of double albums for the first time in a long long time brings back many great memories. I envy a young person today who is first discovering The Beatles. After 40 years of listening to The Beatles- the music never gets old to me- but it was mind blowing hearing their songs the first time.
- LED ZEPPELIN: LED ZEPPELIN I: 1969: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Led Zeppelin out of the box with a heavy debut album.
- THE VELVET UNDERGROUND: LOADED: 1970: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. This album starts out with “Who Loves The Sun”, “Sweet Jane”, and “Rock & Roll”–in a better world all three of those songs would have been smash hits. Last Velvet’s album with Lou Reed.
- VAN MORRISON: NO GURU, NO METHOD, NO TEACHER: 1986: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. One of Van’s better 1980’s albums- “In The Garden” a Van classic from this one.
