Albums (CDs) for Christmas

cds for christmas yes 1222 (2)

I know I can’t be the only one who buys themselves Christmas presents.  Since I featured a few Jethro Tull tunes this holiday season, it refreshed my want to own “Songs from the Wood,” one of the few albums of theirs I don’t have.  I went to discogs to find a used CD and easily found it at an excellent bargain from a seller with 100% rating.  I also saw where the seller said no matter how many CDs you buy there is one $4 shipping charge.  Honestly, who can resist that?    So…. I went searching and chose a few more for excellent prices.  Here they are, in no particular order.  As I listen I’ll do reviews on them.

Jethro Tull  Songs from the Wood
Derek and the Dominoes  Layla (I used to have this LP)
Dave Matthews  Some Devil
Donald Fagen  The Nightfly
Johnny Cash    At San Quentin
The Allman Brothers Band  Mycology • an Anthology
The Who  Quadrophenia (2 disc set)

Cost for all of these (with shipping):  $20-21

Question:  did you buy yourself anything for Christmas this year?

      I envy you seeing those guys. They are living legends. At the Woodstock site isn’t there a building there now?

    I like Quadrophenia… it’s deep. I love the musical landscape that Pete made with that also. Everything ties in with water.

      I’m going to have to put the headphones on and sit back in the easy chair and listen to that one. Can’t wait 🙂

  5. Some nice picks I recognize here, Lisa. I’m best familiar with Donald Fagen’s excellent “The Nightfly” album and hope you love it as much as I do, as well as The Who’s “Quadrophenia”.

    My Christmas present to myself this year was the flight ticket to Germany to see my parents for the holiday. They’re both in their mid-’80s, and my mom isn’t doing very well, so I was very glad to spend time with them!

      I’m so glad you got to see your parents. Are you back now? I’m sure they were so happy to see you also.

      1. Thanks, Lisa. Yes, I got back on Wednesday evening. I’m glad I went to see my parents who definitely were happy about my visit and that they didn’t end up spending Christmas by themselves. It literally would have been the first time I can think of.

          I listened to it right after commenting after your comment. To me it sounds indistinguishable from Steely Dan. Is that your impression? I recognized the first song right away.

          1. Oh, yeah, the album definitely has a Steely Dan vibe. In part I think it’s because of Fagen’s very distinct vocals are closely associated with Steely Dan. But also musically you could picture these tunes on Dan albums. I guess that’s why I love it! 🙂

    Happy New Year Lisa! And thanks for this, I’m a big Steely Dan fan and I had forgotten about Donald’s post Dan career and The Nightfly. I have it somewhere. Plus I haven’t forgotten about getting you that Mitchell-Feeney Cd, will be in touch post New Year…JIM

      Happy New Year, JIM. I have to wonder how much of the Dan sound was due to Fagen. Very cool on the Mitchell-Feeney CD!
