Toto IV -

I've been struggling with the whole 'Toto fanaticism' going on lately - I mean...I had a number of Toto albums, but, hey...I was a kid....and I've sorta kept it secret many years...the freakishly pop nature of so much of their stuff was gross. But, listening critically now, it is impossible not to appreciate Lukather's guitar work. I Won't Hold You Back is a perfect example of why I struggle with them --- the song is almost sickening in its mushy balladish way...and then there's this stuck in the middle:

Blues Saraceno - Plaid

Dudes got some chops...sometimes he's Steve Vai, others Eddie VH...Michael Schenker...and then Pat Methany ...even a little Jeff Healy blues tossed in. Wish I'd heard of him sooner

Couple of highlight discs of Stevie Wonder's "At the Close of a Century."

Starting with 1972’s “Music of My Mind” to 1980’s “Hotter Than July.” Stevie made a lot of great music back then.

Gary B. B. Coleman-The Sky Is Crying

had the blues and found this on youtube...very slow and Blue....I always feel better after hearing something like this...I guess it helps to hear someone bleeding through the guitar and coming out feeling better for it....

Eddie and the Cruisers - original soundtrack

Most of the songs are done by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. We regularly played this at Records Hawaii and sold quite a few copies to customers just browsing and asking who we were playing.

Haha, far from it. I can hardly play the ukulele and reading music is a foreign language. I just enjoy a wide variety of music and grew up during the “Golden Age” of rock ‘n roll, soul and many other music genres. I guess working in the record biz helped too.

Funny....I just found a still sealed original pressing of that a couple of weekends ago. Gave it a spin and it's just as good as I remember it. FANTASTIC album.

Pretty sure I had 12 of those 20. Didn’t need to get some of them ‘cause I wasn’t too much into their music but could always listen to them at the record store.

Not sure what that even means, Tony. But if I had to guess, it was probably one that I stripped off...like Bee Gees, or Carpenters or John Denver or someone like that

Actually it was on your list: https://www.nme.com/bestalbumsandtracksoftheyear/1975-2-1045413

That was Rolling Stone's award, while Stevie Wonder got the Grammy award for album of the year.

I go along with the Rolling Stone's choice.

Saw George and Billy at "The Spectrum" a long time ago.
GREAT concert, and afterwards, George came out on stage with some kind of religious pitch, with Ravi and other musicians. They played some weird "Indian" type music, and all the while, Billy was standing on the sidelines just boppin' away like he was listening to Chuck berry.
That man had SO MUCH rhythm !
Here he is when he was eleven years old, playing with Nat King Cole.

Great frickin’ album! Bought this as an import back-in-the-day. Love his balls-to-the-wall versions of “Pipeline” and “Great Big Kiss.”
