- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
