MY MUSIC LISTENING JOURNAL: DAY 507: TUESDAY JULY 9, 2019

ALBUMS

Mostly cream album cover with black-and-white image of tall, bearded gentleman holding a snow globe in front of a blonde, cape-wearing woman. In the top right-hand corner, it is captioned "FLEETWOOD MAC" and "RUMOURS" below it.

  • FLEETWOOD MAC: RUMOURS: 1977: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The most famous pop album of the last half of the 70’s- a career making album and they are still cashing in on it.

  • JOHN LENNON AND YOKO ONO: DOUBLE FANTASY: 1980: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: I like John’s songs but the problem is Yoko fills up half the album. Nearly 40 years later the album still brings me sadness.

  • STEVIE WONDER: TRIBUTE TO UNCLE RAY: 1962: 2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Stevie was only 11 when he recorded this his second album- clearly they knew they had a special talent on their hands and were trying to get people to think of Stevie as a young Ray. The album is nothing more than a curiosity.

Everyone Loves the Pilot (Except the Crew)

  • JON ASTLEY: EVERYONE LOVES THE PILOT [EXCEPT THE CREW}: 1987: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Jane’s Getting Serious got some airplay- Jon Astley’s debut album he is most remembered as a producer and the ex-brother-in-law of The Who’s Pete Townshend. Not to be confused with the lame ass pop singer Rick.

You're Never Alone With A Scizophrenic album cover.jpg

  • IAN HUNTER: YOU’RE NEVER ALONE WITH A SCHIZOPHRENIC: 1979: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: 40 years after this album- Ian Hunter is still going strong just celebrating birthday #80. This is his most celebrated solo album.Who would have thought that an Ian Hunter song would become a hit for punk rocker- Barry Manilow- but it happened- Barry had a hit with a song from this album “Ships”  which probably over the years kept new tires on Ian’s tour bus- and food on his table. Great album.

    • I think John went way way overboard in his praise of her musical abilities. I think she was high maintenance and he gave a lot of false praise to keep her happy or else he was madly in love and couldn’t hear what the rest of the world did.

  1. I like Rumours, but I like the one before it, when Buckingham/Nicks joined FM, better. Wore the grooves off that album! What makes you sad about the John & Yoko album? Added the Ian Hunter to the L List (L2 from now on…)
