I've been listening to Threads, Cheryl Crow's last album (not just her latest but supposedly her last).
Every cut is a collaboration. Guest artists include, Eric Clapton, Sting, Keith Richards, Willie Nelson, Johnny cash and others. I never thought I'd ever hear a cover version of George Harrison's "Beware of Darkness," but that's one of the somgs she chose to include.

When I was Done Dying by Dan Deacon.  Heard it at the end of Dark - Episode 9, Season 1.

Half Price Books had ther annual clearance sale this past weekend. I went twice. Vinyl LPs were ony a buck apiece, even sets of 8-10 discs were $1. On Saturday, I bought several Reader's Digest sets. these sets were bought by people who read Reader's Digest*, either for themselves or as gifts. Most of them were listened to maybe once, if that. Some of the music is extremely cheesy. when I saw how many records I got for how little money, I went back on Sunday and bought practically every set I could find, except those I had absolutely no interest in whatsoever. I don't even know everything I bought. I'll be listening to these for months to come (taking Joe Biden's advice, listening to the :phonograph" every night). I ended up with hundreds of vinyl albums for mere dozens of paper dollars.

I also got some great book and DVD deals.

*Full disclosure: my family read Reader's Digest.

I don’t make it to record stores (or stores that sell records) all that often these days, so when I do, I tend to buy several. Over the weekend I bought…

STEVE MILLER BAND: “Selections from the Vault”

RINGO STARR: “What’s My Name”

HARRY CONNICK, JR.: “True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter”

THE BEATLES: 2-CD anniversary edition of “Abbey Road”*

*Like the recent re-releases of “Sgt. Pepper,” the White Album and John Lennon’s “Imagine,” it features the original album remastered plus alternate demos and rehearsal takes of all the original songs in album order.

While it's still a little too early to begin listening to Christmas music, I have already made this year's selection: Chigago's third (or fourth, depending on how you count) album of Christmas music.

It's mostly secular, with a few surprises, one of them being Burt Bacharach's "What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love. (That's the kind of song I used to make fun of while listening to Chicago.)

Tracy bought a good one, too: a two-Cd set of Christmas music from the 1950s, most of which I don't have.

The acapella group Pentatonix.

Here's their version of Bohemian Rhapsody

WHO (2019):

Back in 2006, I never expected the Who, with only two surviving members, to release a new album. (I remember discussing it here.) I certainly never expected another new album which was released last Friday. I’m not going to go into a track-by-track analysis (you’re welcome), but it sounds like classic Who. If you like The Who, you should give it a listen.

BABY METAL'S THIRD ALBUM:

I made some good finds at Half Price Books yesterday. When it comes to CDs, I buy only new ones on clearance, not used ones. They were selling a set called “HIT CLUB” which features 20 songs per set for only $3. The first store had several in stock, and I went to two additional locations. I ended up with most years between 1940 and 1952. There are still several other HPB locations I can try. In addition, I found the following three collections from “Not Now Record”:

ESSENTIAL RHYTHM & BLUES HITS: 40 songs on 2 CDs

ROCKABILLY GIRLS: 60 songs from the ‘50S and ‘60S on 3 CDs

ACE OF SPADES: 60 guitar instrumentals from the ‘50S and ‘60S on 3 CDs

Perhaps the best find was KINGS OF VOCAL JAZZ: 10 original albums by the likes of Chet Baker, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Harry Belafonte, Paul anka, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Louis Armstrong and Tony Bennett.

This is what I am listening to not only today, but will be for the next several weeks.

I listened to a few tracks pf this album when they came up on Spotify. I thought it was good. I will agree if you like The Who you will like this. There just wasn't anything that blew me away, but I do need to listen to the whole thing.

Went in search of more “Hit Club” collections. (Didn’t find any.) According the website (www.promospound.com), 60 volumes were made, covering the years 1940 through 1999 inclusive. I did buy a few other CDs, though, including…

THE RISE OF SKYWALKER (soundtrack): I have all the others.

PREACHING THE BLUES: 75 songs on three CDs

And two more from “Not Now Music” (www.notnowmusic.com)...

ESSENTIAL DOO-WOP SOUL: 40 songs on two CDs

100 ROCK & ROLL HITS: 100 songs (DUH) on FOUR CDs

I also saw 100 COUNTRY HITS but I didn’t buy that one.

Huey Lewis's new album is released today.
