Ok, (1) Dusty in Memphis, (2) Roy Orbison's Crying, (3) CCR's Green River and (4) King Crimson get me to 49 records from the 60s. I want an even 50 before moving on to the 70s. I'm open to suggestions. Post your favorite non-Beatles 60s albums, I'll give it a listen, and maybe I can decide on Slot 50.
I feel like creators approach Star Wars wrong. It’s not that hard to make a good Star Wars movie. The formula is (1) take plot of samurai movie (2) write dialogue like a western (3) sprinkle in WWII dogfights.
Alrighty, I re-upped my VMP sub, but I actually WANT the 3 records I “purchased” in my collection (Gorillaz, Queens of the Stone Age, and Aretha). I’m not doing the completionist thing as that really made me unhappy.
(1) a sampling of the most acclaimed artists;
(2) selections from a charming group of misfits and music-lovers that makes me question how albums come to be acclaimed;
(3) some favorites; and
(4) too much random stuff from FOMO, subscription services based upon their own business interests, or the hype of the new flavor of the week.
I'm trying to cut out more of 4...all of it if I can help it.
I don't know why VMP keeps trying to create some new "exclusive" community for Anthology. The forum is way more fun. Mather with his endless warps, Joe Mac rolling his eyes so hard I can feel it across the Atlantic, Teeeee being awesome, NathanRicaud being super positive, and many many others on here make a far better vinyl-collecting experience than some sterile corporate-created...thingy.
