I bought this album for 99¢ in a TG and Y bargain bin in 1976, and it kinda changed my life. Songs like "Attack of the Giant Ants" had me scratching my 12-year old towhead, trying to reconcile the beauty on the cover with lyrics like "Giant ants from space snuff the human race / Then they eat your face, never leave a trace." A few years later, when the very different "Heart of Glass" broke big, it also provided me with my first opportunity to be a music snob.
Ann and Nancy Wilson...Heart beautiful song writers and singers, emotion and tribulations show in their music. I've loved them since the first time I heard Barracuda sitting in my moms lap singing along!
It's strange to think that The Beatles were once a boy band. Their 1964 performance on The Ed Sullivan Show catapulted them to fame. By early 1965, when this photograph was taken, The Beatles were an international phenomenon.

Bios of The 'Classic Five' Members of Music Group, The Temptations.
The Temptations are an American vocal group known for their success in the 1960's and 70's at Motown Records. Known for their recognizable choreography, distinct harmonies, and flashy onstage outfits, the "Tempts" have been said to be as influential to soul as The Beatles are to pop and rock.
Kind of Blue - The #1 Jazz Album of all time - and for good reason. In addition to being a flat-out terrific album, it has one other unique characteristic. It works both as background music AND as music you can let yourself sink into it - or let it go back into the background. Pretty interesting.
