1001 Albums #27

I have heard of The Everly Brothers, but not really any of their music, except maybe “Cathy’s Clown” their biggest hit. The good thing about their album A Date with the Everly Brothers is that it is a short date. All of the songs are under three minutes. The Bee Gees, Oasis, The Carpenters, The […]

Was there some sort of jazz explosion in the late 50s? I am not sure I can handle much more of the chaos. I am struggling with my own head at the moment without all the chaos of another jazz artist. But I started this and I am that person that will usually finish what […]

When I started looking at the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die I realised that there are so many albums I have never heard of and so many albums that I have no interest in listening to at all. And I thought I have loved music all my life, but I have […]

2012 In Music

Thursdays are always about music for me. On my computer i have a list in Winamp that i rotate every Thursday. This past year was one of the worst years in music history, but that is my opinion. Everything seems auto-tuned today, even the artist that can sing are auto-tuned. It is a bit sad, […]
