- THE WHO: A QUICK ONE: 1966: 4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Back in the late 70’s I bought two double packages of The Who- Their first album and the compilation Magic Bus: The Who On Tour came in one and The Who’s second and third albums were packaged together- highlights on this- “Boris The Spider”, “So Sad About Us”, “Run Run Run” and a the final song “A Quick One” which was a glimpse of things to come a mini- rock opera coming in at over 9 minutes.
- THE WHO: THE WHO SELL OUT: 1967: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: With all the hype about the overrated Tommy- this album doesn’t seem to get much love- but it’s my second favorite album by The Who. “I Can See For Miles” was the hit. I love the little commercials they have between songs.
- DAVID BOWIE: YOUNG AMERICANS:1975: 4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The opening title track and “Fame” were the big hits- two of Bowie’s most famous- he does a great cover of The Beatles “Across The Universe.” The album features his interest in American R&B and soul- as he escapes from glam rock.
- THE BEATLES: PAST MASTERS I: 1988: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS:
- THE KINKS: THE ESSENTIAL KINKS: 2014: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: 48 tracks on this double CD- celebrating The Kinks 50th anniversary. Great music all their big hits are here.
