Danny Deardorff & Marcus Joseph – “Deardorff & Joseph”

Danny Deardorff & Marcus Joseph – “Deardorff & Joseph”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Danny Deardorff is one of my favorite folk musicians, his albums are always really heartfelt and simply performed with the most talent that one could emit from their being.  The album opens with the song “One More Story to Tell” and we immediately go into Danny singing...

Meat Loaf – “Bat Out of Hell”

Meat Loaf – “Bat Out of Hell”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None.

What else can I say?  The album starts off with the... Read More »

The Dream Academy – “The Dream Academy”

The Dream Academy – “The Dream Academy”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, originally when I was given this LP, I was under the impression I had no idea who this band was, or any of their work. Upon listening, I knew that I had heard the first track before.  The album opens with “Life in a Northern Town”... Read More »

The New Seekers – “We’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”

The New Seekers – “We’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: I don’t really remember when I came to own this LP, I know it was during my first few months of collecting, and I know it was for the title track.  The album opens with the track “Tonight” with Peter on lead vocals, and it seems to...

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...

Hedley – “Storms”

Hedley – “Storms”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I’m far from being a Hedley fan, I liked maybe two songs? “Gunnin’” and “3, 2, 1” – I’ve literally been in the same room as Hedley and had no reaction to them. An acquaintance bought me this LP for Christmas 2011, because he liked the picture... Read More »

Roman Holliday – “Roman Holliday”

Roman Holliday – “Roman Holliday”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, I don’t know, I really liked the sailor hats.  So, the album opens with the song “Stand By” and there has never been a record that has sounded more 80’s than this album, the instrumentals, the vocals, the lyrics, it’s all way too 80’s. It’s different,... Read More »

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...

John Lennon & Yoko Ono – “Double Fantasy”

John Lennon & Yoko Ono – “Double Fantasy”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, finally out of the Beatles solo works we come to an end with yet another John Lennon release – this time with more Yoko!  So, the album opens with “(Just Like) Starting Over” which actually is pretty decent John Lennon song, and it’s sung really well,...
