&quot;I Feel Love&quot;
On the Radio - Greatest Hits Vol. 1 & 2

Al Dia (Up to Date)
Bell Records 2308 004 1971
Jeez leweez, never trust a kid to refile records correctly. Why is there a copy of The Partridge Family's Up to Date in the sleeve for The Partridge Family Notebook? And why is the label in Spanish but none of the songs are in Spanish. Oh well.

&quot;Big Red's Boogie Woogie&quot;

Iron Maiden [35:56]
&quot;The Prisoner&quot;
The Number of the Beast
Harvest ST-12202 1982
Bruce Dickinson's debut outing with Maiden. This album loomed large in my adolescence. Evidently Mr. Dickinson is touring with a spoken word show?

TacocaT [41:59]
&quot;Psychedlic Quinceañera&quot;
NVM
Hardly Art HAR-079 2014
So many awesome songs on this album that it's hard to pick just one, but really... This Is the One! From the lyrics to the trumpets, what's not to love?

&quot;Never Say Never&quot;
Never Say Never
Columbia/415 Records 5C 38178 1981

The Cramps [01:03:54]
&quot;I Can't Hardly Stand It&quot;
...Off the Bone
Illegal Records ILPIC 012 1985

Albums and All That, Starting with the letter N as in November, Part 3 Nick Lowe [00:28]
&quot;My Heart Hurts&quot;
Nick the Knife
Columbia FC 37932 1982

&quot;Lotta Love&quot;
Nicolette

Fresh off assisting Neil Young with American Stars 'n Bars, Nicolette unleashes some peak 70s adult-oriented rock with this side one, track one Young cover for her debut album.

Shana Cleveland [06:14]
&quot;Face of the Sun&quot;
Night of the Worm Moon
Hardly Art HAR 111 2019

The Oscar Peterson Trio [09:44]
&quot;I Got It Bad (and That Ain't Good)&quot;
Night Train
Verve Records V6-8538 1963
An album of excellently curated standards, with this being no exception.

The Beatles [27:57]
&quot;Don't Let Me Down&quot;
1967-1970
Apple Records SKBO 3404 1973
What? Just because many of the folks who listen to Vinyl-O-Matic have watched all 7 hours and 48 minutes of Get Back doesn't mean we can't still enjoy this song. I mean really, how awesome was Billy Preston?



Hillsboro High School Eagle Band [33:20]
&quot;Streets of Laredo&quot;
1973-1974 Sweepstakes
Reelsound Recording Company RSF-7417 1974

Prince [38:49]
&quot;Little Red Corvette&quot;
1999
Warner Bros. Records 9 23720-1 1982
Perhaps one of the best first sides of any double album out there. Hard to choose just one track from the album, but &quot;Little Red Corvette&quot; will always be my fave. Fun fact: &quot;Little Red Corvette&quot; was partially the inspiration for Stevie Nick's 1983 hit &quot;Stand Back&quot;, and in fact His Pupleness can be heard playing synth on the choruses.

Los Campesinos! [43:46]
&quot;What Death Leaves Behind&quot;
No Blues
Turnstile TS007LP 2013
The lead single from Los Campesinos! excellent 2013 album, on lovely hot pink vinyl. Here's an appearance that they made at the time on New York's WFUV.

&quot;Ace of Spades&quot;
No Remorse
Bronze 7 90233-1-H 1984
Every day someone is born who has never heard Motörhead's &quot;Ace of Spades&quot;. Perhaps one of those people is you. If so, enjoy! I bet you couldn't tell that Lemmy was a fan of slot machines. Fun fact: This album was leather scented when I bought it a very long time ago. A little travelling music please.

Carly Simon [51:56]
&quot;You're So Vain&quot;
No Secrets
Elektra EKS-75049 1972

The Exbats [56:13]
&quot;Ghost in the Record Store&quot;
Now Where Were We
Goner Records 173GONE 2021
One of the best albums of 2021. Can't get enough of Exbats! This song made it's first appearance for 2020's Record Store Day (back in the dark days).

Neutral Milk Hotel [08:29]
&quot;Song Against Sex&quot;
Neutral Milk Hotel
NMH Records NMH001 2011
All the Neutral Milk Hotel you could possibly want tucked away into this amazing box set. Naturally it's hard to pick just one song, but this one always gets the old brain juice flowing.

Spinners with Dionne Warwick [12:14]
&quot;Then Came You&quot;
New and Improved
Atlantic SD 18118 1974
This is one of those songs that lies dormant in my memory until I hear it and then I get a flood of childhood memories. Funny how music can work like that.



Deafheaven [17:24]
&quot;Baby Blue&quot;
New Bermuda
Anti- 87431-1SC5 2016
Some dreamy doomy goodness from the Bay Area band's third studio album.

The Apples in Stereo [27:34]
&quot;Can You Feel It?&quot;
New Magnetic Wonder
Yep Roc Records/Simian Records LP-YEP-2132 2007
Well, can you? Killer opening track from Apples in Stereo's 6th studio album co-penned by the late greate Bill Doss. Also, their first album not on spinART, and their last with drummer Hilarie Sidney.

DEVO [37:09]
&quot;Through Be Cool&quot;
New Traditionalists
Warner Bros. Records BSK 3595 1981
Side one, track one from DEVO's fourth studio album. Fun fact: this song will always remind of a small supermarket chain in the Omaha area called Hinky Dinky. Pretty sure it no longer exists. And of course, an early MTV heavy rotation classic. Oh those evil spuds.
