And then there were … Liner Notes

*And this week was indeed something:

Daniel Barenboim’s latest complete recording of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas & Diabelli Variations is a tour-de-force. As soon as I got my grubby paws on this collection, I had to listen all the way through from absolute start to finish.

Elvis Costello’s Hey Clockface redefines one of my favorite artists and performers way back in High School, when first introduced in the ’70s, as Eclectic Costello. With this album, listeners might find themselves favoring some tracks than others. indeed a quirky mix of genres even for E.C.

Stevie Nicks’ Live In Concert: The 24 Karat Gold Tour reminds us all of what a treasure we have in Stevie’s iconic voice and that we should celebrate her even more than we so do.

Kylie Minogue’s DISCO had me moving to the groove. I grew up in the disco age, in the heart of it all: Studio 54, Xenon, The Red Parrot, etc. And this album brought back to the traditional disco beats without being kitsch and over-the-top.

Public Enemy’s What You Do When the Grid Goes Down is so wonderfully OLD SKOOL. Again, I was fortunate to grow up in NYC when I did and experience acts like Public Enemy and Schoolly-D when they first hit the scene. They were then such a breath of fresh air. Public Enemy’s latest here could not have any more TIME-ly.

And yeah, yeah, yeah, I can miss out on somethings and only get back to them once they make it across my transom. CeeLo Green’s CeeLo Green is Thomas Callaway is everything I could have hoped for in one of his albums. His recent appearance on Daryl Hall’s Live from Daryl’s House where CeeLo, Daryl, and the band performed I Can’t Go For That opened my ears to the man’s talent as a vocalist.

Shoutouts to Sufjan Stevens’ Ascension and Diana Krall’s This Dream of You.

David Bowie’s Metrobolist, aka The Man Who Sold The World, should sell anyone on the mastery and creativity of the man that was and the legend that is David Bowie.

Joni Mitchell’s Joni Mitchell Archives – Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963-1967) gives us an idea of her trajectory and with hindsight connects the dots in her evolution as a singer/songwriter.

Grateful Dead’s American Beauty, the 50th Anniversary will forever be having me friend the devil. Along with the album tracks, I can never get enough of their live performances especially those recorded at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre.
