ALBUMS

  • BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: BORN IN THE USA.: 1984: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Springsteen’s seventh album would go on to sell 15 million copies. Who would have ever saw that coming? Seven hit singles off the album and The Boss had never before of since been a huge singles artists. My favorite songs on the album tend to be the songs that weren’t singles- since they weren’t played to death on the radio.

  • JOHN FOGERTY: CENTERFIELD: 1985: 4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Fogerty’s most famous and successful solo album since the demise of CCR. Centerfield one of the great baseball songs. The Old Man Down The Road- had him sued unsuccessfully for stealing from his own song by Saul Zaentz- who can’t dance but could back then steal your money.

  1. I’m currently reading Bruce’s autobiography and My Hometown is in my head this morning. Also, I’ve been lamenting not placing Tunnel of Love higher in my Bruce rankings a few weeks back. I listened to it the other day and was reminded how good it is.

  2. When Fogerty’s album came out I was so happy that he was recording again. I really like that album…”I Saw It On Tv” and of course possibly the best baseball song ever Centerfield.

    • The follow up Eye Of The Zombie was disappointing and then he disappeared again for a while.. I Saw It On TV- a great song.

  3. Agree that many of the BUSA songs were played to death. In going back and listening to it today removed from all the hype back then can really appreciate that this is a great collection of songs
