Richard Simmons – “Reach”

Richard Simmons – “Reach”The Sleeve: Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  With all this hoopla going on with Richard Simmons’ being apparently held ‘hostage’ by his housekeeper, but I’m not here to discuss that. I’m here to discuss the record of Richard Simmons.  So, this LP is supposed to come with a Exercise Book, I guess to... Read More »

Children of the World – “The Time is Now”

Children of the World – “The Time is Now”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “Steve Popovich and legendary Nashville producer / arranger Bill Justis have created a labor of love for our perpetual enjoyment and inspiration.

Merrill Womach – “Images of Christmas”

Merrill Womach – “Images of Christmas”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Musically speaking, Merrill Womach was eons beyond talented. This guy has a voice range that hit four octaves, he survived a plane crash, and still managed to have a good music career and had a business (which is still going strong) that supplies music to funeral homes. Unfortunately... Read More »

James Taylor – “Sweet Baby James”

James Taylor – “Sweet Baby James”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Picking your 400th record to review isn’t always the easiest of choices to make, for many reasons, one being it has to be something you’re not going to give a low rating to, and it also has to be something that will wow people, but it also,...

Traffic – “Traffic”

Traffic – “Traffic”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, the real question in life is what is better than Steve Winwood? Early Steve Winwood.  The album opens with “You Can All Join In” and it’s a whole lot of rhyming and great musicianship on this one, it’s something you can nod along to also, it’s... Read More »

George H. Jenner – “Fingers Four Touch On Sounds”

George H. Jenner – “Fingers Four Touch On Sounds”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “GEORGE JENNER IS SHOWN SEATED AT THE CONSOLE OF THE BALDWIN PR 200 ORGAN IN HIS STUDIO AT CAMBRIDGE (GALT), ONTARIO.  GEORGE TOOK AN EARLY INTEREST IN MUSIC, STARTING ON DRUMS AND LATER MOVING TO THE AUTOHARP, AS NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE THAT HE HAD THE ABILITY TO PROCESS BEYOND...

Charity Brown – “Rock Me”

Charity Brown – “Rock Me”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “Making records and performing have always been foremost in Charity’s life. With “ROCK ME”, her first album, you’ll hear her three powerhouse hits, “JIMMY MACK”, “YOU BEAT ME TO THE PUNCH” and “TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS”, but you’ll feel her power and sensitive rapport with a song.” Personal Review:...

The Atonement Quartet & “Big Lew” Garrison ‎– “The Atonement Quartet Featuring “Big Lew” Garrison”

The Atonement Quartet & “Big Lew” Garrison ‎– “The Atonement Quartet Featuring “Big Lew” Garrison”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I think it might be safe to say that Big Lew is the big on the far left.  The album opens with the track “The Eastern Gate” – and well, it’s all very vocal… the piano playing is a bit too upbeat, but the vocal dynamic of...

Holy Cow – Four Big Hits

Holy Cow – Four Big HitsThe Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Flipping through a record bin, and you stop you a cover with a redneck, a guy who looks like he could costar along Bronson Pinchot in “Perfect Strangers” and then Marv from “Home Alone” – are you really going to pass that up? The bands name is... Read More »
