Being There 

I got you and that’s all I need …”

Wilco release their second — and my favorite of their albums so far —  on October 29, 1996. I’ve worn out two CDs. Probably be three if not for technology.


Hometown Girl 

If you lived in the D.C. area back in the ’90’s, you probably were already familiar with that voice and the uncompromising songwriting. On July 30, 1997, the rest of the world was introduced to Mary Chapin Carpenter with the release of her debut album.

The best was yet to come.

Some Girls

The Rolling Stones release my fav album from The Boys on June 9, 1978. The original album cover featured the likenesses of some fairly famous people who didn’t like the fact they were featured on a Stones album and sued. Their images were removed and album cover #2 was quickly reissued. It’s also the first album to feature Woody, who joined the band for good just before the recording. And, it’s #269 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

The “Some Girls” tour was nothing short of epic. I got to participate on a Saturday in July at Soldier Field in Chicago. A weekend in Chicago with The Stones — magical.
