  • OTIS REDDING: THE DOCK OF THE BAY: 1968: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Otis was just breaking through as far as popularity when he was tragically killed in December 1967. This was released a couple of months later. The Dock Of The Bay would go to #1 and is one of those few 60’s hits that I never get tired of hearing. At the time of his death Otis Redding was only 26 and the future looked very bright- one of the great losses in the history of rock ‘n’ soul. Other favorites on this album-I Love You More Than Words Can Say, Let Me Come Home, Ole Man Trouble, The Glory of Love and Tramp.
  • OTIS REDDING: THE DOCK OF THE BAY: 1968: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The album is only a half hour long so I hit the repeat button a couple more times on it. Gets better with each listen.
  • OTIS REDDING: THE DOCK OF THE BAY- 1968: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS:

  • BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY: CHEAP THRILLS: 1968: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: First off and I may be in a minority here but I have never cared that much for Janis Joplin act. Was she a great talent? No doubt but for me a little goes a long way. This was a #1 album in 1968 in the US. Favorites on this- Piece Of My Heart and Ball and Chain.
  • SIMON AND GARFUNKEL: BOOKENDS: 1968: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Keeping with my 1968 theme- giving this another listen.

this evening listened to this week’s edition of Celtic Crush with Larry Kirwan. This was the first week of his countdown of the Top 100 songs on Celtic Crush voted by the listeners- starting at #100 and going to #67 this week.
