  • THE BAND: MUSIC FROM BIG PINK: 1968: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: This album was released 49 years ago today. It is hard to top the first two albums by The Band. At the time they had to stand out from other rock music being put out. These albums sound like something put out in a different age by men from a different time. I’ve always liked the second album “The Band” slightly over this one but both are in my all time Top 50 albums. {The Band- The Band- being in my top 10} Dylan’s back-up band could do it on their own!
  • BOB DYLAN: KNOCKED OUT LOADED: 1986: 2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: One of Dylan’s worst- Brownsville Girl a gem but the rest of it– Bob sinking into possibly the worst slump of his career- the late 80’s overall not a high note- the next album was even worse.
  • BUCK OWENS:  YOU’RE FOR ME: 1962: 3 1/2 STARS: Buck originals- including a couple hits- You’re For Me and Under The Influence of Love.
  • BUCK OWENS: ON THE BANDSTAND: 1963:  3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Only one hit on this one “Kickin’ Our Hearts Around.” A number of instrumentals- a rootsy Buck album. Pleasant listen.
