KENDRICK LAMAR: DAMN: 2017: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS:CD:Like Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly” this is only my second ever listen to this album- and I do know one thing- I like To Pimp A Butterfly- a lot more. But still I want to listen a lot more to both albums since they are so highly acclaimed before I made a final verdict.

GORDON LIGHTFOOT: COMPLETE GREATEST HITS: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: 2002: CD: Unless you are a complete Lightfoothead you probably won’t need to do any exploring past this 20 song Cd which has the big hits and near hits of the Canadian- who is still touring last I saw. This is a fine collection I can’t think of anything essential that is missing. Favorite Lightfoot songs- The Wreck of The Edmund FItzgerald, Early Morning Rain, Canadian Railroad Trilogy, If You Could Read My Mind, Summer Side Of Life, Sundown, Carefree Highway, Rainy Day People.

 

Divided & United: The Songs Of The Civil War [2 CD]

DIVIDED AND UNITED: THE SONGS OF THE CIVIL WAR: 2013: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: CD: In a couple weeks we are going to Gettysburg for a few days and I checked this out of the library thinking it would be a collection to listen to that would get me into the mood for the trip- but while the two disc 36 song collection has some good music it fails to produce what I was looking for. The Ken Burns Civil War soundtrack- it always puts me back into the war- this doesn’t. Maybe I need to give it a couple more listens and it will sink in. It’s not the performers- which are a virtual who’s who of Americana music.
