This is a continuation of the post that I did about nine days ago where I am trying to see what people are listening to while they are being encouraged to "stay at home" and avoid the Covid-19 crisis.
As I have been working down in my basement more than I did in the past, I have been listening to a lot of my records. I have a couple that I just ordered on eBay, but due to the shipping delays from the Corona virus, they have not arrived yet.
Instead, I have been sorting through the stack of 200+ records that I have and listening to some of the gems in my collection. The mood has definitely been mellow soft rock lately as you will see from the pictures.
My sessions have included Genesis: Invisible Touch as you see above as well as the remaining records I will share below.
INXS is one of my favorite bands from the time period they were out and I really feel they could still be more relevant today than they are if the lead singer had not passed away. He was a truly special talent.
I share this picture in my post the other day, but Phish: Farmhouse is one of my favorite records. I listened to the first side twice through before I wrote both of these posts. For some reason both sides are skipping towards the end of the record, but I can't see any obvious reason why. I may just need to throw a dime or penny on top of my stylus.
I have quite a few Billy Joel records in my collection. He is pretty iconic and words really can't begin to describe the amount of talent he possesses. There is a lot of good stuff on this record (both sides). It is always a joy to spin it.
I picked up this England Dan and John Ford Coley record a short time before our basement flooded. Sadly I lost all of my jackets, but the records survived and this is one great record. Most of their radio hits you are familiar with, plus some other gems. Likely you have heard the songs before, but never really knew the names of the guys that sang them.
You might laugh, but the Xanadu soundtrack is pretty awesome. One side Olivia Newton John, the other side Electric Light Orchestra. There is a lot of good tunes on this album. If you are fans of either of those artists and you haven't given the whole thing a listen, you really should.
Finally, I finished the day yesterday with Mike and the Mechanics. They are such a great band. This album is a real must have if you are a fan of the group. Silent Running and All I Need is a Miracle. Do I really need to say more?
There you have it folks, that is who I have been listening to. Write your own post and use the #whoareyoulisteningto tag today!
