Making Some Lists & Checking Them Twice

Music has always been an important part of my life and a significant part of this blog.  Whether it is listening to music, playing it by myself or with the band, there is always a song close by.

I was asked to name my 20 favorite albums, but found the task daunting.

Deciding on an alternative, I will list my 100 favorite records, broken down into five categories of twenty each.   The categories will be:

  • Instrumental only
  • Live performances
  • Compilations or “Best of” collections
  • Studio Recordings
  • Individual songs from other albums

I started creating the lists this evening and will need to do some significant editing as I have way too many albums already. These lists will be of “contemporary” music and when this project is completed, maybe I create some “classical” lists.  Baroque would be more like it.  If nothing else, you will likely be exposed to some musicians you have never heard of before. . .  and you might actually like them.

To whet your appetitie, below is a song from the CD, “Key’s Disease” by John Bartus.  The album will be included in the “Studio Recordings” Top 20. Here is another story about John.

A song that John describes as about ” Desire, love gained and love lost, all in the setting of a Southern, railroad town”.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
