Holy Moly! It's been so long since my last post I almost forgot I was even blogging anymore. The past three weeks have been really hectic and as my mother would say (in slightly broken English) “It’s been a ‘holy coaster’”. The bright spot was my vacation this past week which was a 7 day cruise on the Crown Princess to The Bahamas, Curacao, and Aruba. Very lovely indeed, and I swam in the most beautiful blue waters on earth. Really breathtaking. Kudos to the folks at Princess cruise lines who really go out of their way to take care of you. I’ve been on several other cruises and Princess does a hell of a job. Highly recommended. On to this post. This has basically been in the can since October, but unforeseen circumstances kept me from doing what I usually do here, so what I’m offering is a double whammy. One volume with two parts, and you get them in the same post!!! This post in particular is strictly dedicated to pop sounds so if you’re looking for garage, punk, beat, or some wild psych, you’re not going to find it here. Also in an effort to get this out before the end of the day, I’ve dispensed with the label scans and my thought provoking commentary on each record. What you do get are 61 pop gems in many styles from slightly psychedelic. to good old sunshiny songs. I hope you all enjoy. It’s good to be back.
