- CAN YOU DIG IT? 70’S SOUL EXPERIENCE: VARIOUS ARTISTS: 2001: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The first of a six disc Rhino retrospective on 70’s soul- in the series 136 cuts and I don’t think there is a bad song among them. On the first disc some of the highlights- Rainy Night In Georgia- Brook Benton/ Everybody Is A Star- Sly and The Family Stone/ Band Of Gold-Freda Payne/ Did I Blow Your Mind- The Delfonics/ War-Edwin Starr/ Want Ads- Honey Cone/Groove Me-King Floyd.
- HANK WILLIAMS: 24 GREATEST HITS: 1970: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: 24 Of the Hillbilly Shakespeare’s best known songs. A good starting point but even at 24 songs there are some classics that aren’t included so I would recommend the 2 disc set with 40 songs. Any set without I Saw The Light isn’t complete but all 24 songs on here are classic Hank.
- THE BEATLES: THE BEATLES- THE WHITE ALBUM: DISC 3 THE ESHER DEMOS: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: I keep coming back to this disc in the box set. Played it for a friend- a fellow Beatle fan and he loved it of course.
Also went to my first concert of 2018- Bob Dylan in Youngstown, Ohio- will write a review later.
