In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment:
I'm still listening to some of the CD's I bought myself for Christmas quite heavily:
Black Keys - El Camino
Jack White - Blunderbuss
Joe Bonamassa - Dust Bowl
Pixies - Doolittle
And when I need to just space out in the car I have two CD's I made up from early Tangerine Dream albums.
Glad you're happy with the albums, esp. the ones that were "forum inspired", if you know what I mean. :)
(BTW, cute about your daughter's singing voice. ("Time After Time" is classic for the ages.) Judging from some comments on a youtube of that song, there was a recent performance of it by someone on a reality singing contest (The Voice); there are many younger teens who had never heard it prior to that. How funny that the reality singing shows feature so many old classics, giving so many great songs exposure to younger listeners. :)
And while you're here, a big announcement was made re: a McCartney and Wings DVD release. Not sure if this is something you, or anyone else, would rush out to buy, or put on the back burner, but either way, consider this a FYI.
Paul McCartney's "Rockshow" was finally released on DVD
Released today (June 10th) on DVD and Blu-ray is Paul McCartney & Wings' one and only concert film, Rockshow. The movie, which captures a full 30-song set from McCartney's 1976 Wings Over America tour, features performances filmed in New York City, Los Angeles, and Seattle. The disc's release date falls on the 37th anniversary of the Seattle Kingdome date.
Rockshow kicks off with quite possibly McCartney's hottest opening number -- a 10-minute medley of "Venus And Mars/Rock Show" coupled with Wings' 1973 Top 10 smash "Jet." For years, the story going around was that "Jet" was actually inspired by the McCartney's Labrador puppy -- but McCartney explains it was another of the family's pets that sparked off his legendary whimsical imagination: "Yeah, we had a little pony for the kids in Scotland, it was called, 'Jet.' And, y'know, the truth is that's just a starting point. That's what I often do and I think that does often puzzle people a bit."
Full 30-song setlist:
"Venus And Mars/Rock Show/Jet"
"Let Me Roll It"
"Spirits Of Ancient Egypt"
"Maybe I'm Amazed"
"Call Me Back Again"
"The Long And Winding Road"
"Live And Let Die"
"Picasso's Last Words (Drink To Me)"
"You Gave Me The Answer"
"Magneto And Titanium Man"
"Listen To What The Man Said"
"Let 'Em In"
"Time To Hide"
"Silly Love Songs"
"Beware My Love"
"Band On The Run"
"Hi, Hi, Hi"
