No Wu-Tang Clan: Enter the 36th Chamber yet????? Geez!!! ;):D
That is actually among the remaining 931 recordings but I have to go in the random order that the universe assigns. Admittedly, today's selection isn't one of my favorites (but maybe I'll be surprised after I finish listening to them in a bit).

Some of the artists in the remaining recordings I am most looking forward to:
Afrika Bambaataa and the Soul Sonic Force
Beastie Boys
De La Soul
Danger Mouse
Eric B. and Rakim
NWA
Run-DMC
Nas
Kanye West
The Streets
Son House
Lighnin' Hopkins
Brian Eno
ESG
Shuggie Otis
The Beach Boys
Solomon Burke
Outkast
Stevie Wonder
Ryan Adams
Arcade Fire
Blind Faith
Bright Eyes
Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band
The Flaming Lips
Bonnie "Prince" Billy
Guided By Voices
Pixies
Randy Newman
Traffic
Frank Zappa

Day 25:
  • Louvin Brothers, Satan is Real
  • Joshua Bell, Nicholas Maw's Violin Concerto
  • Tal Farlow, The Swinging Guitar of Tal Farlow

The Louvin Brothers album might be one of the greatest album covers of all time:

Day 26:
  • Sam Cooke, Sam Cooke with The Soul Stirrers
  • Earth, Wind & Fire, All 'n All
  • Sam Cooke, Live at the Harlem Square Club

What are the odds of two Sam Cooke recordings being chosen on the same day? It will be a soulful morning here.

Might Hotel California be one of the most overrated albums of all time?? I think perhaps.
I've never actually listened to it before. I think all I've ever heard from the Eagles has been their Greatest Hits and I was never really all that impressed. I know I find the song "Hotel California" to be totally annoying now.

Incidentally, Spotify doesn't seem to have The Eagles so I will have to wait until I get home to download this one to listen to.

[ot]The unintentional irony on that album cover is off the chart. Yes, Satan is real and here to help emphasize and illustrate this important fact is this highly realistic and frightening representation of the Prince of Darkness.[/ot]

The write-up about that album in the book mentions that the two brothers in the Louvin Brothers had built that giant Satan out of rocks and then painted it, covered it with kerosene, and then lit it on fire. The fumes made everybody at the photo shoot sick and the kerosene got so hot that it was making the rocks explode and everybody had to keep ducking for cover.

I had seen that album cover probably 100 times before on all sorts of lists of funniest/worst album art but had never actually listened to it before. It was actually a pretty good album. This exercise of going through all these old recordings has made me discover that I really like old (early 1960s and earlier) country, gospel, and bluegrass.

Day 32

  • Kaija Saariah - L'Amour de Loin
  • Jules Massenet - Manon
  • Dion - The Wanderer [7"]

The Massenet work is an opera that looks like it's nearly three hours long. I don't know if I will make it through the whole thing today before I give up out of boredom.

I cannot believe they only selected that one track. The entire album Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd should be required listening.
According to the write-up, the author picked the track mainly to give listeners an idea of why concertgoers are constantly yelling out "Free Bird!" during slow spots or quiet moments in concerts. I thought of listening to the whole album but decided to just listen to 4 different versions of the song instead at various points throughout the day yesterday.

Day 35

  • Nas - Illmatic
  • Dinu Lipatti - Besançon Festival, 1950
  • Digital Underground - Sex Packets

I see the 1990s hip hop is starting to show up.

Illmatic is one of my favorite hip hop albums ever.

I had always heard about Illmatic but never actually listened to it. After doing so, I've been hooked. I think I've played it about 5 times since Wednesday. Sex Packets was always one of my favorite albums when I was in high school (I never realized it was actually from 1990, I thought it was a few years later). I really like the whole Bay Area rap scene from back then: Digital Underground, Del the Funkee Homosapian, Hieroglyphics, Too Short, Dan the Automator...


Day 36

  • Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
  • Bobby Darin - That's All
  • ZZ Top - Tres Hombres


I'm sort of surprised that Neon Bible is on the list and not Funeral. IMO, Funeral is about 100x better and more interesting. Oh well.

DANCE PARTY

Gotta dance to this one:

[video=youtube_share;o9_w6ZhvRJ8]http://youtu.be/o9_w6ZhvRJ8[/video]





HUH. I just realized that Biggie stole the "Biggie Biggie Biggie, can't you see, sometimes your words just hypnotize me" from Slick Rick.

Day 38

  • Richard Wagner - Tristan & Isolde
  • Roxy Music - Avalon
  • JS Bach - Brandenburg Concertos [Concerto Italiano version]

Avalon is my favorite Roxy Music album by a long shot. And if I had to pick a style icon to model myself after, it might very well be Bryan Ferry. Though if I were actually attempting to model myself after him, I'd be failing miserably.

Reader comments about the upcoming Barry Manilow concert -
Will he get another facelift while he's on stage? He looks as bad as Burt Reynolds, Bruce Jenner, and Kenny Rogers combined.

Ah the _____ Center, promised home of new, up to date, popular acts...so far we have not seen one appear here.
The _______ Center is so full of "has beens" and "never made its" they should rename it the Edsel Center.

Are his back-up singers known as "The Hospice Girls"?
:-o 8-! :p :lmao:
