    I threw on the Tragically Hip CD "Road Apples" for the first time in years, and was immediately struck at just how AMAZING the entire CD is.

    If you do not have it, I highly suggest you give it a listen.

    Here's a strange one.
    I remember seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and they were on the radio all the time while I was growing up but I had never heard "Revolver" or " Rubber Soul" in their entirety.
    So just this last winter I bought them as mp3s and have been listening to them on the Walkman while I walk the dog at night. Pretty cool stuff.

    The album experience of The Beatles is really different from hearing songs over the years. For sure!

    Was just thinking about this on the my ride in. I listened to Queensryche's Rage for Order. Tate has taken a beating lately but some of his vocal performances on Rage are ridiculous.

    I don't listen to a lot of current music, so all my "old" albums get played pretty regularly. I wish I could rediscover something, I'm bored with all my music lately.

    I discovered this sucker in mono and it is way, way better that way! Now i think it is absolutely brilliant, yet I only recognized as being pretty good before...(and I'm not saying it's just because of the mono / stereo difference, but that did contribute...) - there's much less reverb on the mono version.

    The Replacements "Pleased to Meet Me". I had forgotten how awesome it is from end to end.

    I just recently pulled Marshall Crenshaw's debut album from 1982 off the shelf after not listening to it in who knows how long. It's fantastic!

    This one. I still have my original mono copy from 1967, hadn't listened to it in a few years, put it on the other day and it's even better than I remembered:

    Had this on 8-track back in the 70's and wore it out. Just started listening to it again recently. Forgot how awesome it was.



    Pretty groundbreaking for it's time.

    A couple that I can always put on the turntable and enjoy--Doobie Brothers-Stampede and one that some might actually classify as "yacht music" (but I like it anyway-lots of good arrangements on it)-Loggins and Messina--Full Sail.
