With the exception of the obvious album, I’m gonna try and mention a few that don’t normally come up when this list is contemplated. Interestingly enough, my first pick goes in a direction that most who know me wouldn’t suspect… Perfect album? Time Out – Dave Brubeck Set a standard of what a great jazz album […]

I say often that I was sick and tired of 1970’s longhairs and their guitars…but then came synths, hungry starving bands on Welfare, and inno-FREAKING-vation.? 80’s New Wave and alternative appealed to something I had no name for, but which I now recognize is my cold, cold silicon heart.

Ever heard of Sixto Rodriguez? Neither had I. But his album 1970 debut album “Cold Fact” apparently did not ever completely go away. Oh, it never took hold as a music masterpiece here in the United States, but apparently it was HUGE in apartheid South Africa, where the themes of political and racial injustice struck […]
