Of His Honor and His Glory the People Would Sing

For more than a year, some of my friends and I have been sharing music. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us, and share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

This week, nobody else shared anything. So you just get this one album.

Carrying over from Tim’s suggestion from last week, we lost quite a few musicians in 2016. Two of them – Keith Emerson and Greg Lake – from the same band.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer – Emerson, Lake and Palmer (1970)

My Disenchanted Diplomat Asleep inside the Laundromat

For more than a year, some of my friends and I have been sharing music. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us, and share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

I’m surprised it took this long. My friends have started sharing Christmas music. I can only think of one Christmas album I want to share, so I’m holding that until next week. Also, as my wife loves to point out, I’m a bit of a curmudgeon. Instead, I shared just another pretty good album. Before I get to that, here’s what my friends shared:

Charlie Hunter & Bobby Previte – We Two Kings (2015)

Spencer shared a (relatively) new Christmas album of “the Great Carols” by two (or three) guys I haven’t heard of, but feel like I should have. I was surprised at the surf rock, but I mostly really like it. Continue reading

I’m Quite Sure that You’ll Tell Me Just How I Should Feel Today

Orgy – Candyass (1998)

Last week‘s Gin Blossoms got me into a ’90s kick which then got me into some guilty pleasures and albums I bought because of one or two great songs while the rest of the album gets listened to mostly out of nostalgia. Continue reading

Gin Blossoms – New Miserable Experience (1992)

Other than Hey Jealousy (which brings back nostalgiaflood of some onehitwonders and other stuff from the 1990s), I really haven’t heard anything from Gin Blossoms. Continue reading

It’s No Better to be Safe than Sorry

For more than a year, some of my friends and I have been sharing music. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us, and share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

Because of the holiday, this work week is short. I decided to just share a music video and my friends did the same.

a-Ha – Take on Me (1984)
