A late pullout from my guest for episode 63 of LTA, and with no one else available on such short notice meant I had to record it by myself. Not my favourite way of doing a show (good on you, Terry Frost for being able to do it on a weekly basis), but here it is.

This time around, I talk about an album that many see as the pinnacle of Stevie Wonder’s career – “Songs In The Key of Life” from 1976. Two years in recording, Berry Gordy of Motown took a real chance in signing up Steveland Morris to a new 30 million dollar contract at the time of recording. He reportedly got very nervous the longer the recording went. He was rewarded both artistically and financially. An apt title for an album that’s hallmarks are its diversity and excellence.

Eric Reanimator’s Album I Love segment is a beauty, as always. This time around he discusses The Bellrays’ “Let It Blast”. The common description of this band is Aretha Franklin fronts the MC5. See what you think.

Welcome back to Love That Album: The Compilation Series. In episode 5, Eric once again shows the diversity in his arsenal with two very different albums under investigation.

The first one is evocatively titled “Driving in the Rain 3am: Songs to Get Lost With” and is a collection of tunes by Canadian songwriters on the Bongo Beat label that could have fit in at the tail end of that party you went to, followed by the music you’d be wandering the streets through on the way home…via the fish and chip shop.

The second album is part of a 2CD set called “The Bible According To Black Sabbath”. CD1 which Eric focuses on is a ‘best-of’ collection of Black Sabbath. He will discuss CD2 featuring the same songs done by various artists at a later stage.

Another very classy show from Mr Reanimator. Check the episode out, and send some feedback to see let us know how you're enjoying the show.
