Vinyl Burn – Jennifer Warnes – Famous Blue Raincoat (1986)

Jennifer Warnes’ 1986 tribute to Leonard Cohen Famous Blue Raincoat, is another album I picked up in my two years in Saskatoon 1986-88. I also heavily attribute a connection between this album and my wife’s cousin who is among our best friends. She is a big fan of Cohen which, as with my wife, comes …

Vinyl Burn – Diana Ross – Greatest Hits (1976)

Copying Diana Ross’ Greatest Hits album from vinyl to Itunes. This album is not one of mine and graciously found its way here via family or friend. Ross is a true talent there is no question. Her span of music with the Supremes and then into the 1980s is impressive. Not bad for a female …

Vinyl Burn – Roxy Music – Avalon (1982)

Sometimes I think Roxy Music is annoying and I wonder “why do I own Avalon?” I recall a brief phase in which I thought Roxy Music was cool and thus the purchase of 1982’s Avalon. It’s my brother’s music in that he liked Bryan Ferry at some point.  Having a older sibling means observing what they …

Vinyl Burn – Dwight Yoakam – Hillbilly Deluxe (1987)

Dwight Yoakam is one of my favourite artists which is saying something because I am not a Country music guy. At least not in the typical sense. Linda Ronstadt is likely in my top five artists of all time and it is her old time country stuff that I love. Same with Yoakam. Hillbilly Deluxe …

Vinyl Burn – Plants and Animals – The End Of That (2012)

I have some vinyl from the 2000s. Not much but a few. So I’m burning to ITunes again. My wife and I went to Quebec City in 2012 for her 40th and Montreal-based band Plants & Animals were playing so we went. We were watching the warm-up band for about 5 songs whilst simultaneously saying …

Vinyl Burn – Warren Zevon – Exciteable Boy (1978)

  The reason I know about Warren Zevon is his fantastic “Werewolves Of London” song from this 1978 album Excitable Boy. The driving piano riff is infectious and somewhat similar to Lynard Skynard’s “Sweet Home Alabama” piano riff. Who cares. Both good songs. Anyway I’m not sure how I got this album which is either …

Vinyl Burn – John Mayall – Jazz-Blues Fusion (1972)

Burning the 1972 LP Jazz-Blues Fusion by John Mayall. This record was given to me by an old friend named Richard back in the early 90s when he moved out of Peterborough to Nova Scotia. He gave me a few records and an industrial strength canning pot. Still have them. He was involved with Projects …

Vinyl Burn – Jackson Browne – Running On Empty (1977)

Jackson Browne contributed as much to American music from the late 1960s to the 1980s as anyone with the possible exception of Bob Dylan and maybe a few others I don’t want to list since, well,  this is about Browne. Reading Jackson Browne’s bio is like a Who’s Who of the music of this very …
