Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period.
TODAY- LISTENED TO SIX DIFFERENT ALBUMS. TOTAL FOR 33 DAYS- 200 DIFFERENT ALBUMS. ON PACE TO LISTEN TO 2212.
- THE ROLLING STONES: THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST: 1967: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. The Rolling Stones as John Lennon once pointed out were always good at copying The Beatles moves. Six months after “Sgt. Pepper” this is the Stones psychedelic album. They won’t be celebrating the 50th anniversary of this ones release in December- that is my prediction. Interesting album though. “She’s A Rainbow” is the only song you are likely to hear on the radio from this album.
- BOB DYLAN: THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’: 1964: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Dylan’s farewell as a ‘protest singer” he wisely moved on by the time this was even released. Some powerful songs but no diversity. Not as good as “Freewheelin”
- EVA CASSIDY: IMAGINE: 2002: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Released six years after her death. What a great voice, sad that she never lived to see the response her music has had.
- FRANK SINATRA: NICE ‘N EASY: 1960: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Frank with arranger Nelson Riddle updates songs he sang back in the 1940’s when he was just starting out. Much improved upon.
- THE HARDER THEY COME: SOUNDTRACK: 1972: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Iconic Reggae soundtrack- the first reggae album I ever owned or listened to. A great introduction.
- JOHN LENNON: IMAGINE: 1971. 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. The follow-up to Lennon’s finest solo album “Plastic Ono Band.” includes his most famous solo song “Imagine.” and “Give Me Some Truth” which rings as true today as it did back then.
