Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period.
TODAY-Listened to 5 different albums. Total for 68 days- 426 different albums- on pace for -2287.
- THE ROLLING STONES: GET YER YA-YA’S OUT: 1970: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. I am not a big fan of the live album but this is a pretty good one. Considered to be one of the best live albums ever.
- DEAN MARTIN: DINO: THE ESSENTIAL DEAN MARTIN: 2004: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. 30 song compilation of Dean’s best. Today would have been his 100th birthday. Born June 7, 1917 in Steubenville, Ohio -not very far from where I live. Dean was cool and made everything he did look like it was easy.
- DIXIE CHICKS: WIDE OPEN SPACES: 1998: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. When I looked up the release date for this album I was shocked 1998? I was thinking at least 5 years later for some reason. “There’s Your Trouble” one of those songs that stuck in my head for months. Great county album–before the Dixie Chicks got into politics.
- EVERLY BROTHERS: HEARTACHES AND HARMONIES: DISC 2: 1994: 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Listening to the 2nd and 3rd discs of this 4 disc box set reminds me of what I made a set list of my favorite Everly Brothers songs instead of listening to the entire box set. There is a big fall off after disc 1- still some good stuff on these two discs but not as many hits and a lot of material that just doesn’t sound like Everly Brothers type songs. Their cover of Little Richard’s “Lucille” gives me a headache. The Everly Brothers were a big influence of two lads from Liverpool named John and Paul. 102 songs on this box set. You can probably narrow it to 2 disc and say half the number of tracks and be delighted.
- EVERLY BROTHERS: HEARTACHES AND HARMONIES: DISC 3: 1994. 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS,
