Classic Albums

Post by Ranchi »

From yesterday’s newspaper

Listening to music for 30 minutes a day has been found to lower levels of anxiety (G2, 23 March). I have started listening to a classic album a day, yesterday’s being Joni Mitchell’s Court and Spark. Suggestions for future listening gratefully received.[/dropshadow]

So what would you suggest to tap into Spotify in the next few days?
I guess as it’s classic albums I suggest nothing from this century.

I could go with the above suggestion but would add. Moondance - Van Morrison.

What say you?

Hi Ranchie.....My wife had quite a few classic albums but gave them to a good friend who used to manage a well known band back in the seventies..can't for the life of me remember the name of them. As you enter his house he has floor to ceiling shelves of records...must be worth a mint.

Talking to my wife this morning she said we had a couple of Beatles albums', Rumours, and one that i have never heard of which was called "Journey to the centre of the earht" by ?

No disrespect to the other contributors but it’s great to see this one because I’m straight off to Spotify as I haven’t heard this album before. That’s 50 mins of today taken up.

The others are great too. I agree as I’ve heard them.
Keep well & keep more classic albums rolling in.
Steve.

JC released it way back but was advised not to because the lyrics were very controversial … they were also true and relate stories of how the American Indians were treated by the white man, this time the Indians are telling the story. Some of the tracks will bring a tear to your eyes or at least I hope they do.

I like lots of stuff, ABBA , and ballads, but at present we have Classic FM on a lot. The endless repetitive news is driving us crazy on TV. Where's Rays a laugh, Educating Archie. and the Glums when you need them?

About the only time we listen to music nowadays is in the car on our way to Southampton to pick up a cruise, so that's not going to be possible for a while. A couple of weeks ago my good lady did suggest that I swap over some of the CD collection in the car, and introduce something new for our journey down next Friday, good job I never got round to it otherwise it would have been a wasted effort.
