I went a little crazy the other night. Trying to assemble my "favorite albums of 2015" list. I ordered, all at one fell swoop:
"Paradise" by the Wood Brothers "Tracker" by Mark Knopfler "The Waterfall" by My Morning Jacket "No Pier Pressure" by Brian Wilson "Things That Can't Be Undone" by Corb Lund "Coming Home" by Leon Bridges "I Cant Imagine" by Shelby Lynn "Didn't He Ramble" by Glen Hansard "Still" by Richard Thompson
I know I could have streamed all of these, but I still have faith in the physical CD.
I'll report as soon as I've received, listened to, and digested all of the above!
I got the new Monkees album (and one for my sister as well)! We were huge Monkees fans back in 1968. I've heard a track or two from this new album and it's very good. Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne (a big Kinks fan BTW) was deeply involved. Fun facts to know and tell: Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees was a great friend of Harry Nilsson, who some of you know is one of my particular musical faves. So I am pleasantly inclined toward liking this new LP....
