Memo to Sony records: Your 1988 release "Garfunkel" which was touted at the time as some sort of "Greatest Hits" anthology was a hugely disappointing offering back then and now more than 20 years later …

reviewed Pink (P!nk). September 02, 2008
Go P!nk!!     This first single from P!nk's upcoming album "Funhouse" is a fun (very slightly profane), hard-hitting, seriously rocking bad girl break-up anthem.     I …

Herman's Hermits Retrospective
I remember it like it was yesterday. I was shopping at a local discount store with my parents and I begged them to let me buy my first 45 rpm record. That record was "Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely …
