DDOP 2019-08-10: The Polynesians – Beautiful Blue Hawaii

A bit of a mystery on this one as I was reading from the sleeve, I took out the album and noticed it was not what the sleeve indicated. Close, but not the same.

DDOP 2019-08-09: The Best of Peter, Paul and Mary – 10 Years Together

From 1987, I used to listen to LL Cool J for a time. His second album, Bigger and Deffer has a wide variety of songs. While I haven’t listened to it in the past 30 years, it was a great trip down memory lane.

Side 1: I’m Bad, Kanday, Get Down, The Bristol Hotel, My Rhyme Ain’t Done, 357 – Break It On Down

Side 2: Go Cut Creator Go, The Breakthrough, I Need Love, Ahh Let’s Get Ill, The Do Wop, On This Ill TIp

DDOP 2019-08-05: Amadeus Soundtrack

From the mid-80s, when I was just starting my life-long love with classical music, this movie burst on the scene and I absolutely had to have the soundtrack. I still listen to it from time to time. Great stuff! Too many tracks for me to list here, but here’s a handy link

DDOP 2019-08-03: Billy Joel – An Innocent Man

I remember purchasing this shortly after hearing “Uptown Girl” which blew me away because it was such a departure from what Billy Joel sounded like up to that point. This particular LP has some serious wear because it was on loan to the roller rink where I worked up until the time I left in 87. Loads of good memories in this album.

Side 1: Easy Money, An Innocent Man, The Longest Time, This Night, Tell Her About it

Side 2: Uptown Girl, Careless Talk, Christie Lee, Leave a Tender Moment Alone, Keeping the Faith

The theme this year is insights to my vinyl LP collection. As I digitize each one I’ll give you my thoughts on each one. It’s going to be a wild ride! We’re starting it off with this “gem”.
