#128 Jeff Beck – Truth

Jeff Beck? How did he make it on the list I wondered. He is known for his guitar work. I hope this is not a guitar album. I do not want to listen to someone just playing the guitar for one hour. That is my truth, but I hope Beck’s first solo album Truth is similar. […]

John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers’ Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton is not the only Mayall album to feature a future artist who would go onto greater fame. Clapton would leave to form Cream, Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie would leave to form Fleetwood Mac and Mick Taylor would join The Rolling Stones. Yet, I have never heard of John Mayall.

The Rolling Stones‘ Aftermath finds the boys experimenting with many different instruments such as the sitar and the Japanese koto. Actually, let us be honest, Brian Jones was experimenting and he was the genius of the band, but Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were the songwriters.

Their opening song is “Who Are You“. I had a hard time listening to this album. I thought they were trying to sound like different bands. In one song, I thought it was The Rolling […]

I could safely say that I do not have any good memories of my mother except one. She listened to a lot of music. She would listen to songs over and over. If the lyrics were not included on the album, then she would try to write them out. I am not sure why she […]

The Rolling Stones cleverly titled their first album The Rolling Stones. They have been together since 1962. Almost all of the original members are still alive and touring. The Beatles were framed in history as the good guys in white and the Rolling Stones were the bad guys in black. I think that should only go for the music, but not […]
