- ELVIS PRESLEY: THE SEARCHER: SOUNDTRACK: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: I wonder why Roy Orbison never took a shot at It’s Now Or Never- seems like a song that would have fit his style perfectly…. When I put this album on this morning my wife was like “Can’t you play something else.”- she hates the song “Crawfish.” that’s on this album.
- THE CLASH: THE CLASH: 1977: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The incredible debut album by one of my favorite bands The Clash. Strangely the way things worked back then their second album was available in America before their debut. I had read about this album but couldn’t find it anywhere. On a trip to a Pirate baseball game I stopped at a National Record Mart in downtown Pittsburgh after the game and bought “Give’em Enough Rope” the second album and I liked that album but when this was finally released in the US and I got a copy- well this one blew that one out of the water. Favorite songs-Janie Jones, Remote Control, I’m So Bored With The USA, White Riot, Hate and War, What’s My Name, London’s Burning, Career Opportunities, Police and Thieves, Garageland. This is my second favorite Clash album behind London Calling.
- PAUL SIMON: YOU’RE THE ONE: 2000: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: An overlooked Paul Simon album- it was the next album following The Capeman disaster. A decent enough album- Darling Lorainne, Old, That’s Where I Belong, The Teacher and You’re The One are the tracks I like best. One of my least played Paul Simon albums.
This evening I listened to the three hours of Celtic Crush from Sunday- that I missed on Sunday.
