ALBUMS

Aretha's Gold.jpeg

  • ARETHA FRANKLIN: ARETHA’S GOLD: 1969: SOUL: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL: When Aretha left Columbia for Atlantic in the late 60’s her career took off. This greatest hits album of 14 songs just takes into account the first few years at Atlantic. This was Aretha at her peak. Every cut is a classic. The first Aretha album I ever bought. I wasn’t that familiar with her work at the time. I wasn’t disappointed.

  • THE BEATLES: PAST MASTERS II: 1988: ROCK POP: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL: Finishing up my run through The Beatles catalog for another month. The Past Masters volumes are- the singles A and B-sides that hadn’t been released on the regular studio albums and a few odds and ends.

    • I know…in the seventies I managed to grab a Lady Madonna single at a Flea Market looking for baseball cards…all I had was that scratchy copy to hear this one.

    • If we were around when it was all happening we would have been buying up all the singles as they were released. “The Inner Light” would be on my list of underappreciated Beatles songs.

    • Yes it is an underappreciated song. Like Paul said about it…the melody is beautiful.
      I was SO happy to get a good version of it…without the hisses and scratches.
