TODAY listened to 3 different albums. Total for 116 days- 740 different albums. On pace for 2328

  • VAN MORRISON: LIVE AT THE GRAND OPERA HOUSE BELFAST:1984: 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Van’s first live release since the outstanding It’s Too Late To Stop Now- this one isn’t close to the excellence of that one. Lacks the great band he had behind him at that time for one thing.
  • THE STRYPES: SNAPSHOT: 2013: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: All the members of this Irish Rock N Roll group were under 20 when this album was released. It went to #2 on the album chart in Ireland- made no impact in the US. Full of energy-13 songs- 8 originals. Blue Collar Jane, What A Shame and Hometown Girls are standouts.
  • MATTHEW SWEET AND SUSANNA HOFFS: UNDER THE COVERS III: 2014: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Their third volume of covers- this time the songs are from the 80’s. Again, enjoyable to listen to but not something you would necessarily listen to very often.
