#103 Hariprasad Chaurasia, Brij Bhushan Kabra, and Shivkumar Sharma – Call of the Valley

Indian music made the list. That is interesting. I wonder if music from other countries will be represented. We have had some music from France, South America, and England, but I would like some from other European countries and maybe from other Asian countries. Call of the Valley is the first album containing Hindustani classical […]

#89 Cream – Disraeli Gears

I have never heard a Cream song before and I especially have never heard of the album Disraeli Gears. I know who Eric Clapton is, but I do not know much of his music.

1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die is not a book I will recommend. I am on album number forty and it is another live album: James Brown and the Famous Flames’ Live at the Apollo from 1963. I have not listened to it as I write this intro. My problem with the book is that it includes live albums which are […]

The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady from Charles Mingus is jazz. Avant-garde jazz! I will not mess around. I hated it so much. I wanted to run out of the house screaming murder. I felt like I was Janet Leigh in Psycho and Anthony Perkins was plunging me with his knife over and over […]
