This release was easily in my Top 10 albums from 2019.

Sonic guitar wizard from the Fresh & Onlys in fine form on his 3rd solo album.

Recorded in 2012 in Köln to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Can's landmark album.

Barry White [25:10]
"Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe"
Can't Get Enough
20th Century Records T-444 1974
Every day, someone is born who has never heard "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe". This album topped the Top 200 and the single topped the Hot 100.

Elvis Presley [29:40]
A Canadian Tribute
RCA KKL1-7065 1978
One for all you Anne Murray fans out there from a post-humous Elvis compilation dedicated to the Great White North.

Siouxsie and the Banshees [32:38]
Wonderland/Polydor SHEX 10 1987
Some excellent mid-period Siouxsie, topped out at 34 on the UK charts.

Jerry Goldsmith [36:22]
"Main Title"
Capricorn One: Original Motion Picture Sound Track
Warner Bros. BSK 3201 1978
From the man who brought the Planet of the Apes original motion picture sound track comes some very dramatic music!

Captain & Tenille [39:10]
"Love Will Keep Us Together"
Captain & Tenille's Greatest Hits
A&M SP-4667 1977
Sedaka's back... as interpreted by The Captain and Toni Tenille. There's some pretty fun keyboard things going on throughout the whole song. Great work Cap'n!

Men at Work [42:34]
Columbia QC 38660 1983
While this album may lack the novelty impact of Business as Usual, I'd say the song craft is much stronger on this one. Case in point: Overkill. This triple-platinum album peaked at number 3 on the Top 200, as did this single.

Benny Goodman [47:22]
"One O'Clock Jump"
Carnegie Hall Jazz Concert
Columbia OSL-160 1963
A Basie classic, from a classic 1938 jazz concert that included the likes of Benny Goodman, Harry James, Lionel Hampton, Gene Krupa, Cootie Williams, Johnny Hodges, and Lester Young.

The Cars [53:57]
"My Best Friend's Girl"
The Cars
Elektra 6E-135 1978
Gotta love that Muswell Hillbilly riff. This New Wave multi-platinum smash hit has so many great songs it's hard to pick just one. Plus it's an example of Roy Thomas Baker at his finest.

The Decemberists [57:40]
"The Legionnaire's Lament"
Castaways and Cutouts
Jealous Butcher JB-052/Hush Records HUSH 049 2002
Released on my birthday way back in 2002.

Trevor Morris [01:02:23]
"Main Title"
Castlevania: Music from the Netflix Original Series
Lakeshore Records LKS35056 2017
Splatter red and black vinyl, known as "Belmont Blood". If you are at all interested in anime and/or the video game franchise, this series is definitely worth your time.
