The Sinceros ‎– “The Sound Of Sunbathing”

The Sinceros ‎– “The Sound Of Sunbathing”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  The cover on this one caught my eye, and the back cover just seemed to be begging to be purchased… So here we are.  The album opens with “Take Me to Your Leader” which apparently was this bands biggest hit. The opening guitar riff and drum playing... Read More »

Pierre Milo – “Pierre Milo A L’Orgue”

Pierre Milo – “Pierre Milo A L’Orgue”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Organs, Quebec and handlebar moustaches. All good things in my book.  So, this album opens with the track “Tea for Two” and it’s played as a ‘cha cha’ style song, and well, it’s really relaxing and relaxing music is what I need right now, so it works...

The Mom and Dads – “Dance with the Mom and Dads”

The Mom and Dads – “Dance with the Mom and Dads”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, when I first started collecting records I found a copy of “Christmas with the Mom and the Dads” and soon after started to find more and more copies of their albums, at first I thought they were some spectacular rural folk act, but soon found out...

Carly Simon ‎– “The Best of Carly Simon”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, I can’t really say I’m like a huge Carly Simon fan or anything, I know like one song, and knew she was married to James Taylor for a bit.  The album opens with “That’s the Way I’ve Heard It Should Be” and for some reason the...

The Lyttletones – “Sincerely Yours”

The Lyttletones – “Sincerely Yours”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “Gospel song is a unique in the world of music, because of its success is not guaranteed by musical ability or accomplishment.

David Bowie – “Hunky Dory”

David Bowie – “Hunky Dory”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Yesterday on January 10, 2016 the world lost an icon, an innovator and a very brave and inspiring man.

Little Richard – “Little Richard Live! 10 Super Hits”

Little Richard – “Little Richard Live! 10 Super Hits”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Is it honestly necessary to write an intro to a Little Richard album? The coolest part, the label it’s on, was bought by K-Tel.  So, the album opens with the song “Lucille” and Little Richard kicks it off with some wicked piano playing, and his his fantastic...

Ralph Carlson & Country Mile ‎– “Thanks For The Dance”

Ralph Carlson & Country Mile ‎– “Thanks For The Dance”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Out of the people on the cover I have a hard time deciding who is Ralph Carlson, I’m guessing the dude with the hat. I’m also very much digging their outfits.  So, the album starts with the title track “Thanks for the Dance” and the opening musicianship... Read More »
