One of my first cassettes ever—and one I wore to shreds, “Tuesday Night Music Club” by @sherylcrow
remains one of my favorites of all time. I upgraded from a cassette to this 180-gram blue double LP, an exclusive @recordstoredayus
release. The lapis vinyl is enough of a draw, but this album needs no gimmicks. Crow has always been about straightforward, matter-of-fact lyricism and distinct irreverence and, well, fun. Every one of these toe-tappers proves it. While this album is 25 years old, Crow continues to pen her no-nonsense barroom jams, teaming up with @st_vincent
last year to release “Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You.” Rumors are swarming about the pair collaborating again, but it’s Tuesday night so I’ve got music club, and I like a good beer buzz early in the morning. #nowspinning #music #dual1229 #leavinglasvegas #alliwannado #vinyl #vinylcollection #sherylcrow #tuesdaynightmusicclub #instavinyl #180g #LP #vinyljunkie #vinylrecords #33rpm #coloredvinyl #recordstoreday #vinyljunkies #wouldntwanttobelikeyou #annieclark #sherylcrow
THE CURE - Japanese Whispers
After the fallout both psychologically and physically of Pornography, it looked unlikely that anyone would hear from the Cure ever again. Surprisingly, from 1982-1983 Robert Smith and (now keyboardist) Lol Tolhurst put out some of the catchiest singles of their career. "Let's Go to Bed," "The Walk," and "The Lovecats" were not only singles that got the Cure radio play and made them a household name, but more importantly marked the next phase in the music of the Cure, which would reach its peak with albums like Head on the Door, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me and Disintegration. Dropping the stripped-down darkness of Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Pornography, the songs on Japanese Whispers (the aforementioned singles from that era, including all the B-sides) are light, dancy, and at times jazzy. Adding new keyboard sounds, old-timey percussion, standup bass, and some damn silly lyrics rejuvenated Robert Smith and sent him on a course that would cement his role as one of the most interesting musicians to emerge from the '80s underground. Japanese Whispers is one of those rare releases when a singles collection works just as well as a standard-issue album.

Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Released: October 5, 1973
Even though it’s only 3 songs long, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road has one of my favourite Side 1’s: ‘Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding’, ‘Candle In The Wind’, ‘Bennie And The Jets’. The beautiful extended intro to the album slowly pulls you in, but by the time Elton sings Bernie Taupin’s first lines, ‘Roses in the window box, Have tilted to one side, Everything about this house, Was born to grow and die’, I’m hooked for the entire runtime the album.
This double album is stuffed with great tunes. The obvious hits “Candle in the Wind’, Bennie and the Jets’, the title track, and ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’ are the tentpole songs that prop up the album, but don’t overshadow the greatness of the album tracks. One characteristic of a great album for me is how the material holds together as a whole and, of course, this record is as cohesive an album as Elton ever made. Even things like the track listing are so meticulously crafted. The way ‘Your Sister Can’t Twist (But She Can Rock ‘n Roll)’ is a perfect precursor to ‘Saturday Night…’ or the linking of the first two tracks of the album are great examples.
No question, it’s one of the best albums ever made, and unsurprisingly Elton’s best-selling album.
