Edit probably a bad idea
New England - New England
In 1979 I saw this record at the local music store and although I had not heard of this band I noticed it was produced by Paul Stanley. I was in junior high and Kiss was a huge band at the time so I figured I would buy this album. Well, they did not sound like Kiss but it was a really good record anyway and I played the crap out of it for the next several years. If you like 70's-80's bands that combine keyboards, guitar riffs, catchy melodies, and a few power ballads you would probably like these guys. Don't ever wanna lose ya, Shall I run away, Nothing to fear, Turn out the light, Shoot.
Dwight Yoakam - The Very Best Of
Dwight was one the artists most responsible for making me like country music. My fave to come from the late 80's Neo-Traditionalist movement, and there were some greats. 20 tracks of pure country gold. Guitars Cadillacs, You're the one, Things change, Fast as you, Ain't that lonely yet, Streets of Bakersfield(duet with the legendary Buck Owens). I've yet to hear a Dwight Yoakam song(original or cover) that I didn't like.
Ironically, I just got to Denver
New Order - Substance(Disc 1)
One of the best bands from the 80's Electronic/dance music scene. One of the best bands from the 80's period. 12 tracks of pure joyful musical bliss. Ceremony, Temptation, Blue Monday, Confusion, Thieves like us, Perfect kiss, Bizarre love triangle, True faith.
Dwight Yoakam - Blame The Vain
This 2005 release was Dwight's first to not be real commercially successful. Probably more to do with the switch to a smaller record label than quality of music as all DY music is awesome. Blame the vain, Intentional heartache, When I first came here, Three good reasons, Watch out.
New Order - Substance(Disc II)
Disc I is definately the better of this 2 disc set. This is a few instrumental versions of hits and other so-so songs. Not bad overall. Procession, Thieves like us(instrumental), Kiss of death, 1963.
Dwight Yoakam - Dwight Sings Buck
Dwight pays tribute to his main influence The legendary Buck Owens. Love hearing one of my fave Country singers cover these classic Country songs. Can't help but think of Saturday nights watching Hee Haw as a kid. Act naturally, Love's gonna live here, Together again, Cryin' time, My heart skips a beat, Close up the honky tonks.
