- 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.
