Kate’s 6th and Grammy nominated album turns 30 … released on October 17, 1989 …
Jethro Tull’s Warchild turns 45 … released on October 14, 1974.
Kansas releases their seventh and most successful album on October 11, 1977.
Kansas was a staple of 70’s rock radio. It’s a good album but the drilling of the insipid “Dust In The Wind” into the minds of children of the 70’s is something from which only a precious few can recover. Give me the story of Albert Einstein and “Portrait (He Knew)” and I’ll be fine.
David Gilmour releases his fourth solo album on September 18, 2015 …
Released on September 12, 1975. It’s #211 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It’s also Richard Wright and David Gilmour’s fav Pink Floyd album.
Released on September 14, 1979, it’s the last Tull album with the “classic” lineup as Barriemore Barlow, John Evan and David Palmer all left shortly after the album’s release. Stormwatch is also the last of their “folk-rock” trilogy. It’s also a very “environmental” record, highlighting the problems with oil and money. Thankfully, a few more people are paying attention (The Orange One not included.)
