Uruguayan Rolling Stones wanna-be rockers. Perfection. It’s about time I owned this baby. We’ve done so much electrical wiring in our house lately, that I can’t look at this album cover now without taking note of the wiring for that light bulb and feeling stressed out. Up until this purchase, I only owned “Other Animals” […]

Buddy Holly died 55 years ago, today. You can read about the crash here and check out this article about the contents of Buddy Holly’s overnight bag.

I have inappropriate rockstar crush feelings about Chris Bell, knocking Scott Walker down from first place to a temporary second. Last summer I listened to “I am the Cosmos” pretty much nonstop. I wanted Bronco to cover “I Got Kinda Lost” (maybe someday?). Usually I’d listen to that album when I was feeling mopey or […]

There are two albums that I own in three formats. One of them is the Xanadu soundtrack. The other, Doolittle by the Pixies. I first purchased Doolittle on cassette tape in 1992 or 1993. In college, I purchased it on CD and LP – I can’t remember in which order. All I remember is that […]

There’s one or two nights a week where I pick up Greg from his music teaching gig on my way home from work. I usually have about a half an hour to kill before he’s done, so I’ve made it my habit to go hang out at the record shop down the street while I […]
