Captain Beefheart - The Spotlight Kid (1972)
Don’t play this one much. The songs aren’t bad or anything but the guys just play too damn slow. I like to throw it on when I’m going to take a nap, so I can fall asleep with the band. Still, there are some good parts including Don’s vocals on some tracks…if you’re into that sort of stuff.

Just finished today. This was an informative look at the “life and music of James Brown.” Good overview, but I think I’ll need to dig deeper to be satisfied…maybe Brown’s autobiography will be the next place I stop.

613 record albums/sets in the “Core Collection” (containing 858 records)
127 record albums/sets in “limbo” (duplicates/unplayables/rejects/novelties)
99 record albums/sets unlistened to yet
149 cassette albums/sets (55 unlistened to yet)
121 compact disc albums/sets
4 8-track tapes

Sorry Frank Zappa, but you got relocated to make room for more funk LPs.

You’re probably right. I’ll guilt myself into listening to a bit of everything eventually.

Howlin’ Wolf - Blues Master Works (2013)
Sequencing questionable, sound quality phenomenal.

What’s the deal with the sequencing? And can I have the CD?

Sequencing is wayyyyy too top heavy. The first four tracks are Smokestack Lightnin’, Red Rooster, Spoonful and Evil. Like, not all comps need to be strictly chronological but when you have two LPs to cover you should deal out the big stuff a little better.
And yeah I suppose haha but honestly if you have another Howlin Wolf comp on CD you have a better one. I’d love to get the Chess Box but on vinyl it’s dumb expensive.
