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 »

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...

Paul Henry Dallaire ‎– “Princess Maggie Of The North / Goin Back To Moosonee”

Paul Henry Dallaire ‎– “Princess Maggie Of The North / Goin Back To Moosonee”The Sleeve:   The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  This one comes from Paul Henry Dallaire of Timmins, a local(ish) musician and former funeral director.  The A-Side is “Princess Maggie of the North” and it opens a bit weird with some light drumming and some inaudible spoken word part, Paul Henry begins to sing as...

Father Robert White ‎– “A Heart That Understands / What Might Have Been”

Father Robert White ‎– “A Heart That Understands / What Might Have Been”The Sleeve:   The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Father Robert White, known for his ridiculously expensive record – “The Reverend in Rhythm” – also, released this little 45 right here. Who woulda thunk?  The A-Side is “A Heart That Understands” – and it’s you basic pop / vocal standard with the backing vocals, and... Read More »

Claude François – “Petite Mèche De Cheveux”

Claude François – “Petite Mèche De Cheveux”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So Claude François was almost like Elvis but in France. He wrote the original French version of the song “My Way” (“Comme D’Habitude“) and ultimately died after trying to change a light bulb in the shower.  The A-Side of this EP opens with “Maman Chérie” and despite being...

George Jones – “Country Heart”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I’ve always been a George Jones fan, and this album has been sitting in my review pile for ages.

The Beatles – “The White Album”

The Beatles – “The White Album”The Sleeve: The Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: Personal Review:  Well, here we are April 10th, exactly 45 years after the Beatles broke up on April 10th, 1970 – with what is one of their greatest albums, “The White Album” – which is actually just self-titled.  Anyways, the album opens with McCartney singing “Back in the...
