- THE ROLLING STONES: NO STONE UNTURNED VOLUME 1: 1973: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: This is The Rolling Stones version of what The Beatles did with Past Masters- songs that weren’t on their regular album releases- a-and b-side singles, rarities and what have you- this volume is from the early years of their career. 22 songs are on this version including their most famous song of all- Satisfaction.
- THE ROLLING STONES: LET IT BLEED: 1969: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Gimme Shelter, Midnight Rambler, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, Monkey Man- highlights on the follow up to Beggars Banquet. The Stones were on a roll. Their ‘classic period” was underway.
- BOB DYLAN: DESIRE: 1975: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: My favorite Dylan album cover and Hurricane is one of Bob’s best efforts musically. The one drawback Joey- not a bad song but 11 minutes is too long.
- BOB DYLAN: STREET LEGAL: 1978: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: I know some people who say Street Legal is their favorite Dylan album- I can’t see that at all but I do think it is a better album than it seemed like it was upon release in 1978 when it got lukewarm reviews. My first new Dylan album.
