https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vm3_Rv10b4Q One of my all-time favorite Blondie songs! Simply majestic, and criminally not a single from their debut album.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=R3xr7HHYJVg 35. On the US R&B charts. I really can’t understand how this wasn’t a no. 1 hit! ‘Fool’ has to be one of my all-time favorite funk songs, and perfect example of a ‘deep cut’. Sure it was a single, but unsuccessful. Never (to my knowledge) included on any greatest hits or collected singles. … Continue reading “Fool On The Street”- Rick James
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ldkmZnsBoss Black Tie White Noise is often a contender for many people’s least favorite Bowie album. Worse yet, it’s bland and forgettable rather than boldly unlikeable. With an artist like Bowie, nothing is ever completely meritless. The best of the lot, to me, has to be, “You’ve Been Around.” Highlight of the album, and another … Continue reading “You’ve Been Around”- David Bowie
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=43pG6w7kiCs Well, it’s good enough to be lifted from the album to be the single’s b-side. Is that too famous to be a deep cut? Mind Games is one of Lennon’s more enjoyable, though reviews land all across the board. I think it’s pretty good. Closing the record off, though, is one of my favorite … Continue reading “Meat City”- John Lennon
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5YHreQK2D2E Trouble At The Henhouse usually elicits mixed responses. "Ahead By A Century", "Springtime In Vienna" and "Gift Shop" are classics. Some might say that makes the album too frontloaded. Overproduced? Maybe at times. Solid, doubtless. To me, there's a real diamond in the rough towards the end. "Let's Stay Engaged" is one of my … Continue reading “Let’s Stay Engaged”- The Tragically Hip
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3DS0o0y_CSI The Bride Stripped Bare is a solid enough solo Ferry album. To some, thats a given masterpiece. To me, it's an above average mixed bag. Very good listen, for sure; because Ferry's talents are on good display and what I dislike from him mostly restrained. The true highlight for me, has to be the … Continue reading “This Island Earth” -Brian Ferry
Welcome to the "Darkroom" double feature- both a 365MM Deep Cut Corner and All About The Mixes examination! With all the hype over Paul McCartney's new album, the third self-titled, I considered which song from the previous two I like the most. Sure, there are the obvious classics like "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Coming Up", or … Continue reading “Darkroom”- Paul McCartney Double Feature
