America – “History: America’s Greatest Hits”

America – “History: America’s Greatest Hits”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  America’s greatest hits with a guy who looks like Tom Petty on the sleeve.  The album opens with America’s greatest song, “A Horse with No Name” and everything about is amazing. The vocals, the guitar playing, it’s all really out of this world. You know, I first... Read More »

Pilot – “Pilot”

Pilot – “Pilot”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I honestly believe everyone knows Pilot just for their track “Magic” which just so happens to be on this album – which is great!  The album opens with the track “Just a Smile” and it’s a softer song, kind of has that Bay City Rollers feel to...

Personal Review:  So, after purchasing the Northern Lights single, and stuff – I began to see Burton Cummings everywhere I went, every record store, every thrift store – even at my work – but it was just in an advertisement for something Canadian – nonetheless, after much, much, much…...

Bay City Rollers – “Rollin'”The Sleeve: The Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “These days, with the music business growing ever more competitive, it’s becoming increasingly harder for young musicians to achieve any sort of success without a long slot and/or some amazing gimmick to capture the public eye.  So it’s refreshing to come across a young group who’ve found themselves...

Jeremy – “Loneliness is Such a Sad Affair”

Jeremy – “Loneliness is Such a Sad Affair”The Sleeve: The Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “When you first hear Jeremy sing, you’re not sure if your ears are being totally honest. You stop, listen again, and then realize that what you are hearing is a sensitive, new, different and totally interesting sound. A voice that will be readily recognizable the very next time...

Terry Melcher – “Terry Melcher”

Terry Melcher – “Terry Melcher”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Terry Melcher was one of the big shots in music, he produced such acts as the Byrds, The Beach Boys and Paul Revere and the Raiders – he was the son of Doris Day, a singer himself – with his musical partner Bruce Johnston – and also,...

The album opens with the track “I Don’t Want to Lose You” – and it’s a good track, but you gotta give it... Read More »

Fleetwood Mac – “Rumours”

Fleetwood Mac – “Rumours”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: Now Fleetwood Mac is one of those bands that I grew up listening to, I heard all their albums and loved everything I heard, so naturally when I got this album I knew one day I’d have the pleasure of reviewing one of my childhood favorites. The... Read More »

Bob Welch – “French Kiss”

Bob Welch – “French Kiss”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None.

I had never purchased a copy online or anything. Then a couple weeks back, I found this... Read More »

Bay City Rollers – “Bay City Rollers”

Bay City Rollers – “Bay City Rollers”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Before we get into this review, I want to start by saying – without this album, my life would be incomplete.  So, the album opens with the classic track “Give A Little Love” – which is kind of like a 70’s slow dance song I’m guessing. I... Read More »
