MY MUSIC LISTENING JOURNAL: DAY 269: TUESDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2018

ALBUMS

  • 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.

24 Of Hank Williams' Greatest Hits (Vinyl, LP, Compilation) album cover

  • 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.

  1. I have tried to like Hank Sr. because I know I should. I just don’t like his material. I’d much rather listen to Webb Pierce or Buck Owens. The Rhino 70s Soul compilation is great. I don’t have this one but I’ve got a lot of Rhino stuff. It’s solid. Of course the White Album is one of the best albums ever. While My Guitar Gently Weeps is simply genius. If only Lennon and McCartney had given Harrison more “air time”. He’s my favorite Beatle.

    • I can follow you- there are artists I am like that with- you know you should like them but something just doesn’t click…. Rhino over the years released a lot of great quality material-listening to this box set makes me think of listening to the radio back in the 70s- the type of stations that played a little of everything.

    • Oh yeah. That was great radio. Everything from Marvin Gaye, to The Raspberries, to Led Zeppelin. I shared a room with my baby brother back then. He had to have the radio on all night to help him with his colic. Oh my gosh, they played Rain Drops Keep Falling on my Head twenty times a day, that and Bloodrock’s DOA, that scared the you know what out of me. Ha!
