Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in 12 months.

I was on a little mini-vacation for a four days and on the last two days- Monday and Tuesday- we only listened to playlists I had while in the car- I didn’t listen to any albums let alone anything that I hadn’t listened to in the last few months. Back onto the program today!

TODAY- listened to 4 different albums. 138 day total-810 different albums. On pace for-

  • NEIL YOUNG: LIFE: 1986: 3 1/2 STARS: An underrated Neil Young album. Not a great album but a good listen. The first three songs deal with world politics. Most of the album was recorded live. Best tracks- Mideast Vacation, We Never Danced, Long Walk Home.
  • JOHN LENNON/ YOKO ONO: MILK AND HONEY: 1984: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: This was going to be the follow up to Double Fantasy. 6 Lennon songs and 6 Ono songs. I can do without the Yoko. Best tunes- Nobody Told Me, Borrowed Time, I’m Stepping Out,
  • OTIS REDDING: OTIS BLUE/ OTIS REDDING SINGS SOUL:  1965: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The three Otis written songs are the standout tracks- Respect [later made famous by Aretha Franklin} I”ve Been Loving You, Old Man Trouble.. also includes three Sam Cooke covers- Shake, Change Gonna Come, and Wonderful World. Also a great cover of The Stones- Satisfaction.
  • ELVIS COSTELLO: OUT OF OUR IDIOT: 1987: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: A much needed import at the time of release covering EC b-sides and rarities that mostly hadn’t been released on albums at that time. In his first ten years even Elvis throwaways were great.

  1. I used to listen to albums per day, too. Then I ripped all my CDs and went totally digital. That’s when I realized that I could now delete the album songs that I just didn’t like, such as Joan Jett’s “Starfucker.” How did that affect the number of albums per day that I listened to? Thus I decided to catalog all my music and go to a time per day system. Right now, in my non-classical collection cataloged music, I have 1,459 hours 39 minutes and 53 seconds of music. I listen to an average of 10:01:47 of music each day, so it takes me about 145 days to go through my complete non-classical collection. I won’t go into my classical collection because it’s much larger and I haven’t even begun to catalog it yet.
