ALBUMS

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Cosmo's Factory.jpg

  • CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL: COSMOS FACTORY: 1970: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The most celebrated CCR album- Travelin’ Band, Lookin’ Out My Back Door, Run Though The Jungle, Up Around The Bend, Who’ll Stop The Rain, Long As I Can See The Light and an 11 minute cover of I Heard It Though The Grapevine. This was their last great album.

R.E.M. - Automatic for the People.jpg

  • R.E.M.: AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE: 1992: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The middle album of their career- 8th album out of 15- and it seems like it was their high water mark. It is regarded by band members Peter Buck and Mike Mills and by a majority of critics as their best album- and I agree.

  1. I dig all of these records. “Cosmo’s Factory” is great, though my favorite CCR songs “Have You Ever Seen The Rain” and “Hey Tonight” are on their follow-on “Pendulum”.

    R.E.M. were pretty popular in Germany. “Drive”, “Everybody Hurts” and “Man On The Moon” from “Automatic For The People” got plenty of radio play in Germany at the time.

    And, as noted previously, Macca simply continues to be an inspiration to me. I’m amazed, and there’s no maybe in here!😀

    • I love the first eight albums- the last seven hit and miss- can’t go wrong in my opinion with the the first eight.. Life’s Rich Pageant and Green are awesome!
