Painted Dreams Inside My Head

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

John Denver – Poems, Prayers and Promises (1971)

Maybe Tim was inspired by my Jakob Dylan share last week (or maybe my share this week), but here’s some more country folk rock for you.

This is Denver’s fourth album. Early on in his career, he used other writers, and did covers. Here you get some Beatles, solo McCartney and James Taylor covers. Continue reading

Live the Life You Please

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

Dave Chisholm – Instrumental (2017)

Tim found this at Salt Lake Comic Con this year. This is the soundtrack to Dave Chisholm’s second graphic novel (he has a music background, and teaches at a conservatory in New York, so he has the musical ability as well as artistic storytelling), and each track is a chapter in the book. It’s about a guy with a trumpet that plays the most amazing music, but when he does someone dies. I’ve heard Scott Pilgrim and Jem and the Holograms are some of the best comics about music, so I’d love to see how this comic compares to those. You can check out all of Dave’s stuff at his website. Continue reading

I Got Your Meaning Between the Lines

For a couple of years 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 know it was Memorial Day this week, and while I could have gone with an album with a topically relevant song, I didn’t want to make a theme out of it. So I went another direction. But first, here’s what my friends had to share:

Queen – The Game (1980)

Tim shared another Queen album. Queen has been shared more than any other artist in the past two years we’ve been playing this game. This is their seventh album he’s shared in that time (not counting the Freddie solo album). And Tim is sure to share more. Plus, Bohemian Rhapsody is the most shared song. Aside from the studio and live versions, it has also shown up in music videos and mixes. Continue reading

She’s Gone, and She’s Wearing Your Red Sweater

For almost two years, 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.

Some weeks are heavier or more dense than other weeks. Not that this week was whipped cream, but it was lighter.

Greg Kihn Band – RocKihnRoll (1981)

When Tim shared this album, he made me feel like I should have heard The Breakup Song before. But I haven’t. Tim will be flabbergasted. Continue reading

Stuck on a Groove that I Don’t Wanna Lose

For almost two years, 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.

A quick heads up: The versions of these albums on Spotify have some bonus tracks (eg. all of the tracks from the UK and US releases – they shared 8 of the 11 tracks – of Jimi’s, plus the b-sides for the three singles). Unlike last week (which had crazy amounts of bonus tracks), I’m listening to all of these.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Are You Experienced? (1967)

While we had a little Jimi back when we shared some live albums, this is the first of Jimi (et al)’s studio stuff. Continue reading
