ALBUMS

The cover of Abbey Road has no printed words. It is a photo of the Beatles, in side view, crossing the street in single file.

  • 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.

Pure McCartney (Paul McCartney album).jpg

  • 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.

    • Living For The City is up there on my list too… yes Pure McCartney is his solo stuff and his Wings stuff. Came out in 2016 so up to date. oh and I got Juliet Naked from the library today- hope to watch it tomorrow.

    • Ok on the McCartney, will see if L has it, sounds good. And yay! on Juliet Naked. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it. There is a scene I adore in it and want to see if you can guess which one it is.

    • Looking forward to watching it. I couldn’t believe our library had it- usually I have to order stuff from the other libraries in our system…
