One of my favorite records to start off the day. I’m guessing I’m not alone in my belief that Pink Moon belongs in every record collection. Essential!

Cherry Bombs Of Icon & Influence!
After snatching a record deal due to the brute strength of a single rehearsal, The Runaways proceeded to change the face (and gender) of rock and roll with the release of their 1976 debut. Mere months after their initial assault, The Runaways crank up the intensity on their dominant second album, painting stark pictures of teenage rebellion across a stunning set of originals.

French weirdo synth prog! 
Originally released in 1978, French-language Québécois band Eden’s only album is a fine example of unusually synth-heavy symphonic prog rock featuring several ornate instrumentals, including a colourful cover of Fauré’s famous Pavane

Originalement paru en 1978, l’unique album de la formation québécoise Eden offre un rock progressif symphonique particulièrement riche en synthétiseurs avec plusieurs morceaux instrumentaux, dont une version audacieuse de la célèbre Pavane de Fauré

Neil Young ‎– Decade (1976)

Neil Young ‎– Decade (1976)

Coffee, Smoke, Neil

The morning sun has washed out the colors to this photo, I’ll take it.  I mostly subscribe to the idea that “Best Of” compilations don’t really count as albums per se.  That said, I can’t think of a better compilation than this 1976 3lp set. Like most Neil fans I have a whole bunch of his discography, but Decade is just about as perfect a way to soundtrack the day’ ahead.  National treasure, of the most crotchety variety.

Coffee, Smoke, Sabbath

Anyone else start hearing “Changes” playing in your head, every time life takes you out of your comfort zone?  That one song has become my personal 40 year soundtrack to that one insecure state of being, which occurs several times throughout one’s life.
I’m going through changes.  Universally relatable, and perfectly capture in song by Ozzy.

  • Harvest (1972)

These albums help center the hurricane when things get crazy.  The restorative power is very real.  Neil nourishes.

Coffee, Smoke, Funk

A very good period in music.  The Hendrix effect was everywhere.I dig Noel Redding’s Fat Mattress project as well, but I’m of the camp that digs the Band Of Gypsys lineup above all.  Buddy Miles n’ Billy Cox brought the funk.

Charles Mingus ‎– Mingus Moves (1973)

In rock n’ roll terms, this would be equivalent to Black Sabbath “’Born Again”.  It’s that often overlooked album that hardcore fans always talk about enthusiastically.  It’s never (yet) been reissued and I’ve only seen it on a dig once (my copy). It’s prossibly the most delicate sounding Mingus album from his vast catalog. Check out the music link below, tell me what you think. Anyone else have a copy?
