Bringing It All Back Home is the fifth studio album from Bob Dylan. I cannot tell you how excited I was when I saw another album of his on the list. I was surprised that the book and other critics skipped his two albums from 1964 The Times They Are a-Changin’ and Another Side of Bob Dylan. It seems they were not well loved. I will skip them for now, but return to them at a later date. Dylan fans were not happy […]

Live at the Star Club, Hamburg from Jerry Lee Lewis is what you expect of him. He is a Rock and Roller. Yes, he is still alive. I have heard of him, but I thought he died 100 years ago. I guess all the wives and rock life has petrified him like Keith Richards. What […]

Ray Price’s Night Life is a honky tonk country album. Is the fact that he talks about what the album is in the introduction song what makes it honky tonk? Or is it because he is white that it is honky (tonk)? I hate the intro song because I find it weird that he is talking to […]

Ray Charles is back on the list with Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. If you have been following me on this journey or know me in real life, then you know I hate country music. I hate it playing in the house. I hate it as much as I hate a mouse. I hate it coming from the music box. I hate it even if it served me a bagel and lox. I do not […]

I have never heard of Marty Robbins and from the cover of the album Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs I thought this is definitely not my type of music. I am not a gunslinger. In fact, I have a fear of guns. And if you know me I hate country music. As I listened to […]

I have said it before and I will say it again. I do not like Spanish music. At least I have never heard one song that made me think I should buy the cd or download it from iTunes. Sabu’s Palo Congo is no exception. In fact, I hate it even more because it mixes jazz […]

Tragic Songs of Life by The Louvin Brothers should have been titled Tragic Songs to Comment Suicide To. I will be honest with you. I hate country music. It sounds like a cat being raped by an elephant. I imagine a bunch of kitties with little collars that have #metoo stamped on it when I […]
