Musical Journey: Stop 0 - Explanation
Alright, so I am working in reverse order here. The other day I posted Stop #1: Frank Zappa - Sheik Yerbouti album. Be sure to check it out as it is a great write up(not trying to be arrogant in any way, I promise). I have received some great comments and emails which is nice because that has been slacking recently. Anyways, I touched on this series a little bit in the post, but thought I would elaborate.
I recently read The Vinyl Princess. This is a YA novel about a girl who works in a record shop. I have written a review here. As I was reading the novel, I wrote down every album mentioned and in some cases an artist or song. I have a pretty massive list. I scanned the list for you here (I am also going after the entire mixtape on pages 246-47, but did not want to ruin the thunder....if only the author posted the final mixtape that was returned?)
So this series of post will be my voyage going through each of these albums and artists and then providing my comments and any other thoughts along the way. I will tell you that I am working on Stop 1.5 as I cannot get enough of some Frank Zappa. I will finish that up when I feel that I have the new purchases all figured out. I also received Joni Mitchell - Ladies of the Canyon from the library. Let the games begin and hopefully you will follow me down this journey of great music that is as wide arrange of music as you can ask.
