The Columbia Years

No, not the university or the country...Columbia Records.

Hubby and I managed to get a little "couple" time today and we headed over to CD Warehouse to check out some of their deals. Sitting behind the counter was a gem of a deal - Frank Sinatra's "The Best of the Columbia Years: 1943-1952." Four CD's, a great booklet with fab pictures of Frank, wonderful case holder, and all in pristine condition. Price: $18.99 Hubby bought it for me. :-)

Okay, okay, I admit it. I listen to Frank Sinatra. A lot. I especially love his album "In The Wee Small Hours." I'm not sure which I like better - his early years or later years where he sang songs like "Old Devil Moon," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "My Way," and "Come Fly With Me." There's a definite difference to his voice - the early years it's smoother and cleaner. In the later years, it's got a great raspy sound to it.

I also bought a Mozart CD and the soundtrack to the James Bond movie Goldeneye. Yes, I know. I'm certifiably weird. :-)

    I just couldn't take it and went down to N.O. today. And I'm very heartened. Uptown, Warehouse District, and CBD are dry..... There's lots of fallen limbs and power lines.

  5. I have a friend who really likes Dean Martin. But I have to admit, sprinkled amongst the Pearl Jam and Our Lady Peace CDs are a few John McDermott's. I love the celtic folk songs.

  6. isn't it interesting to read what kind of music other people listen too. A lot of writers are younger than I am, and I haven't even HEARD of some the the musicians they listen to. (but I'm very young at heart, and think of myself as young...it's all a mindset... does that count??? *g )

    nice spam... ;)

  7. No weirder than me! My musical taste is eclectic, to say the least *g*. I too like Sinatra and Mozart, as well as AC/DC, The Clash and Midnight Oil.

    We have a small chain of stores here in my hometown also called CD Warehouse. Cool.
