  1. Friends album, by Carmine Appice and Jim Bogert, I believe his name is Tim not Jim.

  2. Stevie Wonder’s Journey Through The Secret Life Of Plants, In A Square Circle amp; Woman in Red “classics”? Really? Stevie Wonder ranks very high in my list of all-time top artists. But I think you’re setting the bar much too low. Wonder’s incredible run of classics ended, unfortunately, with Songs In The Key Life. Mediocre albums by once-great artists do not automatically become classics by virtue of being 30 years old. Sorry if that comes off as harsh. But Wonder is one of my favorites, and aside from a couple of songs from Hotter Than July and his soundtrack for Jungle Fever, I’ve been disappointed in nearly everything he’s done since 1976.

    1. Not harsh by any stretch, Matt. I do agree that earlier works are the ones to match. And while these noted issues are not classic in the sense of those earlier strings of brilliance, they are, to some people, beautiful works from a classic artist. It could be argued that Wonder’ very early albums, while pushing out hits, were not “classic” in the way of Songs In The Key of Life, Talking Book, or Innervisions. But they still mean something to other people who look at the musical expansion of any artist as pleasing.

      Myself, I’m immediately critical of U2 after Unforgettable Fire, and am just now liking Joshua Tree to the same degree. And yet, many would argue with me about ANY post Unforgettable Fire issues.

      I always choose to tread lightly, never stepping on the toes of serious fans who’s in love with an artist and their works, no matter how much I may disagree.

  3. Hi Matt

    I’ve downloaded digital only lps from independent artist sites before but I have no idea how I would doi it or from where for the capitol quicksilver releases.
    Could you tell me what would be the best way to go about that?

    1. Bob, that’s a very good question. My first thought is HDTracks. However, that may not be correct. I’ll send an email with that question.
