MY 33 FAVORITE RECORDING ARTISTS

Image result for the osmonds images

Back at the tail end of last year I started my countdown of 33 Favorite Recording Artists- and left off about 1/3rd of the way into it in mid- December. Instead of picking up where I left off- I am just going to do the countdown on one post and close that one up. After the picture of the artist I added the cover of my favorite album of theirs.

  1. I like your list and having read your blog for the months I have, none of them surprise me. The output of these individuals have made the world a better place.

    • Months ago when I was jotting down names- I had well over 100 names on the list it was hard to narrow town to 33. A lot of good music out there!

  2. Great list! While I haven’t figured out my top 33, apart from many artists you selected, I think it would also include Cream, Steely Dan, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, Eagles, Deep Purple, John Mellencamp, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, James Brown and Curtis Mayfield. As I’m jotting down all these names, I realize how difficult it must be to narrow things down to 33 artists! 🙂

    • I came across the paper that I was jotting down names on months ago when working on the list- I could have made a Hot 100 and still left off some good ones..a good problem to have.. Marvin and Stevie would have been in my Top 50…The Eagles-well I will go with what Jeffrey Lebowski said on those boys….

  3. Ha! It’s okay, I know you’re not particularly fond of the Eagles. As I’ve said before, the world would be boring if we all had the same taste. Plus, hey, at least I didn’t include your all-time favorite band – The Osmonds!😆
