ALBUMS

 

The Band (album) coverart.jpg

  • THE BAND: THE BAND: 1969: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: On my shortlist for Greatest Album Ever- probably right behind Van Morrison “Astral Weeks” and The Beatles “Revolver.” The best summing up of what this album is about comes from Rob Bowman in the liner notes of the 2000 reissue–“The Band has been viewed as a concept album, with the songs focusing on people, places and traditions associated with an older version of Americana.”

  • THE BAND: STAGE FRIGHT: 1970: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Imagine the problem you face when the first two albums you do as a band the albums are perfect, classics. Stage Fright isn’t a bad album at all- a number of fine songs but it doesn’t compare well to Music From Big Pink or The Band. They would never reach such heights again but few artists have. Favorite songs on this album- Sleeping, The Shape I’m In, Stage Fright, Daniel And The Sacred Heart, Time To Kill and The W.S. Walcott Medicine Show.

  • THIN LIZZY: DEDICATION: THE VERY BEST OF THIN LIZZY: 1991:4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Whiskey In The Jar, The Boys Are Back In Town, Jailbreak, The Rocker, Cowboy Song, Dancing In The Moonlight. Phil Lynott gone too soon at 36.

Also listened to all three hours of this weeks NEON BEAT on Radio George.
