why not? continued

So, over the last ten days or so I’ve posted album covers without explanations.  That was the rule as set forth by someone who started the whole thing in facebook.  However, this isn’t facebook and I haven’t been blogging much so i figured why not?

The ten covers posted were not necessarily my ten most favorite albums of all time though all ten probably fall somewhere in the top fifty.  But each of them represent some sort of first for me, so I’m going to do a quick blurb on each of the ten to explain their particular meaning to me.  Since blogs are supposed to stay short, I’ll do it over three days.

Yes, I know this is self serving, but I haven’t been writing and I had to think of something.  Apologies to all, but hopefully there will be some who find this of some interest.

4)     Johnny CashWhen the man comes Around.  I was never a fan of country music but this one changes everything.  The title song was written by Cash but the rest are all covers including Depeche Mode, Roberta Flack and the Beatles.  Gave me an even greater appreciation for Johnny Cash and country music in general.

5)     Joni MitchellLadies of the Canyon.  This was the first one to turn me on to Joni Mitchell, specifically and to folk stuff, in general.  People who know me now, and realize that three quarters of what I listen to now is acoustic would be surprised that it took Joni Mitchell to turn me on to the joys of acoustic music some thirty years ago.

6)     Jethro TullThick as a Brick.  Since i did an entire series on the band probably no one’s surprised to see this one.  It was a toss up between this and the Who’s Tommy as albums that showed me that rock music can be intelligent.  This one is an all time classic.

7)     John ColtraneA Love Supreme.  It was John Coltrane who turned me on to more traditional jazz but with his own off beat twist.  I once answered a survey asking if I was on a desert island and could only have one album what would it be.  This was my answer.  It just NEVER gets old.

Thanks for reading.   I’ll finish up tomorrow.

Yes, I know this is self serving, but I haven’t been writing and I had to think of something.  Apologies to all, but hopefully there will be some who find this of some interest.

  1.  So Long Bannatyne by The Guess Who— The Guess Who were the first band I really got into that wasn’t the Beatles.  I think I was about 9, when my brother turned me onto this particular album.
  2. Uprising by Bob Marley and the Wailers— I’d listened to a little reggae before college but could never get into it—thought it all sounded the same.  I had a room mate in college who turned me on to Bob with this album.  Been digging reggae ever since.  Thanks, Bobbi, wherever you are (Park City, Utah last I heard).
  3. Big Red by Laurie Anderson— I’ve always tried to maintain eclectic tastes when it comes to music and wanted to try some avant garde stuff.  So, I gave Laurie Anderson a try in my mid 20’s.  No regrets.  And can I say, she and Lou Reed were a GREAT match.

Okay.  That’s plenty for today.  Thanks for humoring me.  Peace to all.
