25 Years Ago: Neil Young’s ‘This Note’s for You’ Album Released

Neil Young was already having a pretty lousy decade when ‘This Note’s for You’ was released on April 11, 1988. It didn’t start out that awful, with the folksy ‘Hawks & Doves’ and the Crazy Horse album ‘Re-ac-tor’ in 1980 and 1981, respectively.

40 Years Ago: The Beatles’ ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ Albums Released

The Beatles were broken up for a little more than three years when the ‘1962-1966’ and ‘1967-1970’ compilations were released in April 1973. The two-disc sets – known as the ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ albums, respectively – were neither supplements to nor replacements for the band’s other records. They were merely what they appeared to be: collections of great songs by the greatest band that ever walked the earth.

Eric Clapton, ‘Old Sock’ – Album Review

There comes a point in most artists’ careers where they just don’t care about making records anymore. Or at least they don’t care about making records that their fans want to hear.

25 Years Ago: The Beatles’ ‘Past Masters’ Albums Released

EMI's decision to overhaul the Beatles catalog in 1987, spurred by the CD revolution, was a long time coming. For more than 20 years the world’s most popular band’s albums were known one way to U.S. fans and another way to fans in Europe.

David Bowie, ‘The Next Day’ – Album Review

Nobody really expected anything from David Bowie at this point, let alone his best album in 30 years. After virtually disappearing following the release and aborted tour in support of 2003’s underwhelming ‘Reality,’ even the rock ‘n’ roll changeling’s biggest fans figured he was finished. He was rarely seen in public, and there certainly were no rumors swirling about a new record or anything like that.
