My Music Listening Journal: Day 97/ 366: Monday April 6, 2020.


  • STEPPENWOLF: GOLD: THEIR GREATEST HITS: 1971:  4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL ALBUM: This greatest hits album came out at around the time Steppenwolf went into decline. Only two of their Top 40 hits aren’t on here-“Monster” #39 and one which came later in 1974-“Straight Shootin’ Woman” #29- the rest of what you’d want to hear is one this album- ‘Born To Be Wild”, “Magic Carpet Ride”,  “Rock Me”, “Hey Lawdy Mama.” I saw them in the early 90’s John Kay was still in fine form.


  • LIONEL RICHIE: CAN’T SLOW DOWN: 1983: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL ALBUM: Lionel Richie in the late 70’s through the mid-80’s couldn’t slow down- he was writing hit after hit with The Commodores and then beginning in 1982 in his solo career. On his second album he had 4 Top 10 hits with “Running With The Night” #7, “Hello” #1, “Stuck On You” #3, “Penny Lover” #8. Lionel was very popular.

  • CHICAGO: CHICAGO X: 1976: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL ALBUM: Chicago put out an album like clockwork every year from 1969-80. They sure weren’t creative when it came to naming their albums.  I was never a big fan but if one of their 1970’s era single came on the radio I didn’t change the station. This one had two hits- “Another Rainy Day In New York City” #32 and one of my favorite Chicago hits “If You Leave Me Now” #1.

  1. Thought of you this morning. Cernovich has a Twitter thread asking people their favorite album to listen to, all the way through.

    About 8000 answers so far.

    Of course I was glad to see Rumors show up many times, but I think Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac is pretty good.
