ALBUMS

  • 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.

  1. I’ve never seen that Stones album before in my life. The Hot Rocks and More Hot Rocks compilations yes…but never this one. Love the cover.

    • About 6 years ago on ITunes they had the entire Stones UK catalog- I got it- everything but the live albums- they had the No Stones Unturned on it- I think it was just a UK release I had never seen it over here before either.

    • Yea it probably was just a UK release…I know in my journeys through old album bins I would have thought I would have ran across it.

  2. Bob Dylan’s Desire is a great album. I have it but haven’t listened recently. IIRC there’s a really good fiddler on this album. That fiddle lends so much depth to the songs. Isis is one of my top Dylan songs, especially when he does it live.
