Episode 96 of Love That Album is available....and like a bridge over troubled water, it will ease your mind.

 

Maurice is joined by Ben Eisen ofthe All Time Top Ten podcast to discuss the final two studio albums from Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, 1968's "Bookends" and 1970's "Bridge Over Troubled Waters". Their Everly Brothers inspired vocal harmony blend, combined with Simon's songwriting and Garfunkel's fragile vocal style make them a truly unique pairing. Their albums to this point had already yielded classic songs still recalled to this day,but both Bookends and Bridge not only further demonstrate their way with great songs, but also stylistically advance into directions Simon would continue to explore in his solo career.

 

Ben and Maurice talk about their introduction to S & G and what keeps them listening to these albums throughout their lifetimes. The only thing missing is the two of them harmonising......but they chose not to do so, because they wantedtokeep their listeners satisfied........

 

Eric Reanimator's "Album I Love" segment covers the the Crash Test Dummies. The band is more than just that (admittedly great) hit Mmm,Mmm, Mmm,Mmm.

Welcome to the 33rd instalment of the Love that Album Compilation Edition.

 

It's November 2016, and  it's time go back in time to the dawn of Rock and Roll to visit with the King... yes that one, Elvis... and one of the originals of Rock and Roll, Bo Diddley.

 

Up first Eric talks about the Elvis comp The Swedish Hits - no kidding, he somehow got Sweden in the mix again!!! Anyway, the 2 CD set sold in grocery stores includes both some of the best known tracks by The King and some lesser recalled ones.

 

From the King Eric moves on to maybe his favourite 50s Rock and Roll Legend, the one the only Bo Diddley.  Taking tracks from His Best and the Chess Boxset, Eric tells why he's down with the Beat, and why you need some Diddley in your collection...
