- THE BEATLES: ABBEY ROAD: 1969: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS:
- STEVIE WONDER: FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE: 1968: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Back in the early 80’s my teenage brothers favorite music artist no doubt was Stevie Wonder. I don’t think it is today I will have to ask him. I don’t think he’s fanatical about anyone like I am The Beatles. Anyway- in one of our ‘deals of the century’ i traded away all my baseball cards for all of his albums and tapes. That is one deal I have always regretted making. I think I got the best of him in most of the deals- like the slice of pizza for his Elvis Costello “My Aim Is True” album. Anyway this is one of the albums I got in that deal- it was before Stevie was making great albums.
- STEVIE WONDER: TALKING BOOK: 1972: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The album that marked the beginning I think- of his classic period. He was can’t miss for the rest of the decade- if we can forget about the Secret Life of Plants album…his most famous tune- Superstition, You Are The Sunshine of My Life, Blame It On The Sun Big Brother and my favorite Wonder song “I Believe” highlight this album.
- STEVIE WONDER: INNERVISIONS: 1973: Living For The City, Too High, Higher Ground, Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing, He’s Misstra Know It All- another winner- great album won the Grammy for Best Album as it should have.
- PAUL MCCCARTNEY: PURE MCCARTNEY: 2016: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: There were two Pure McCartney’s -this is the 2 disc one- the other is a 4 disc one- it is fantastic except my one complaint is – the songs are not arranged chronologically.
- THE WHO: MY GENERATION: 1965: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The Who’s debut- I like the raw energy here- outstanding debut- most famous songs- the title track, A Legal Matter and The Kids Are Alright- but as a whole a great start for one of my favorite rock bands.
