This New age Ain't an Improvement!

DUBBED FROM AN LP – some surface noise.


01. Aria; Variations 1-15 (26:49)
02. Variations 16-20; Aria da capo (25:49)
Yes, it’s impressive, but it comes across as a stunt performance. Synth voices performing notes faster than a human voice could perform it, for instance. Great music which is ill served by the show-offish arrangement.

Decide for yourself!  New Age Bach

See you back here on Monday, for the beginning of ...

SPOOKY SPOCK-TOBER!

Can't you feel the chills already?!?!

11. It Is Well with My Soul (2:46)

As you can imagine, this 1988 album is kinda countrified.  But you might like it anyway, as I did.  Check back on Thursday for more what-have-you!

Rite Springs Eternal

I bought this 1971 LP long ago (aftermarket) and I'm thrilled and moved.

01. Pavane (7:43)
02. Rite of Spring (9:04)
03. Syrinx (3:35)
04. Brandenburg Concerto No 3, First Movement (6:01)
05. Brandenburg Concerto No 3, Second Movement (4:28)

The only nitpicky thing I noticed was that the "second" movement of the Brandenburg is both the brief seguing 2nd movement of the original and the 3rd, run together.  No prob!


Hope you're charmed too.  See you on Monday!

But Who's Counting?

It's a 1992 cassette.  Regarding the titular "twenty hymns," somebody can't count!  Even if you count track 14 as two "folk hymns," we're still one shy of 20!  This group is cheesy and smarmy and too Lawrence-Welkish for my taste, but I hear some peoples' musical tastes are different than mine.

01. My Jesus, I Love Thee (3:00)
02. Seek and Ye Shall Find (1:38)
03. How Firm a Foundation (2:42)

16. What a Friend We Have in Jesus (2:15)
17. In the Garden (2:14)
18. In the Sweet By and By (2:55)


See you Monday.

Happy STAR TREK Day … from Spock and Me!

 As you’ve probably heard, September 8 is a big hoop-de-doo day.  On September 8, 1966, Star Trek premiered.  Along with Jonny QuestThe Man from U.N.C.L.E., and The Adventures of Superman, it was a big influence on my growing up—if you allege that ever happened.

In July, 1980, family member Spock chose to investigate the concept of Sleep Learning.  After all, if it worked for Edgar Cayce, why not for the world’s best dog?  So he went to dreamland with his head cradled on some LPs in our inventory.

Directly under his schnozzola is the two-LP soundtrack for The Empire Strikes Back.  And to the left of that is a Peter Pan Star Trek story record.


You can see that Star Trek has passed down to many generations of the family. See you Monday.

The Great Western Movie Themes

07. Yankee Doodle (2:04)
08. Dynamite Ringo (2:50)
09. Return of the Seven (2:21)
10. Wandering Star (3:13)
11. Hang 'em High (2:07)
12. The Man from Laramie (2:36)
13. How the West Was Won (2:40)
14. True Grit Again - NOT "The Alamo" (3:10)
