From the End of the World to Your Town | Episode Six
The first record Annie ever bought, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy from Elton John is a concept album that tells the story of the musical partnership between Elton and his lyricist Bernie Taupin. The package it came in was pretty impressive!
Hotel California (Episode Five)
For years this was Annie’s favorite record- and hearing it again, it may still be! With Hotel California the Eagles departed from their earlier country-influenced sound and created one of the most enduring records ever made.
Darkness on the Edge of Town (Episode Four)
After a long hiatus, we’re back! We both count Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness on the Edge of Town among our favorites, but it turns out we have some very different opinions on what it’s all about! Trying something a little new with this episode- let us know what you think ;).
Money for Nothing (Episode Three)
Brothers in Arms, released in 1985 by Dire Straits, was one of the last HUGE LPs before CDs came along and changed the game forever. The videos created for this record were some of the more adventurous of the time.
Special Message About Record Store Day
Record Store Day is April 18, 2009. We recorded a special (non)episode to remind our listeners to patronize their local record stores! And we got a little silly doing it. Twitter shout out! Head over to the Record Store Day site for more information and a list of participating retailers!
It’s been such a long time… (Episode Two)
We pull out the debut album by the band Boston. This is was what Album Oriented Rock radio was invented to play.
Shadoobee (Episode One)
On our first episode we talk a little about who we are and what Basement Vinyl is. Then we dive into the stacks and pull out Some Girls from the Rolling Stones. (By the way, Annie was right, it was the White Sox.)
