Music: Alan Parsons THE SECRET / Billy Joel LIVE THROUGH THE YEARS
Alan Parsons THE SECRET
VERY MUCH a Alan Parsons record; well written and played. Perhaps past its time, but a solid record with a ton of fairly obvious Bond references. All in all, a solid Alan Parson record (for good and for bad). In the end, while I sorta dug it, I also found the record pass by without me ever looking up or, well… noticing. Fans should check it out (and will dig it. Non fans… should probably look elsewhere.
Billy Joel LIVE THROUGH THE YEARS
A career-spanning live set by Joel (recording go back to 1977) which features a TON of hits. Everything is well performed and it’s easy to be awed by the man’s range. I mean, man… this guy wrote a lot! Great stuff that pushes the nostalgia button HARD. Fun, well recorded / executed, and a great entry point into Joel’s career.
