Carole Bayer Sager: Carole Bayer Sager – This is Carole Bayer Sager (it’s fun saying her name fast) debut record from 1977, she only released three albums. Bit lazy. She’s a bit of a painter now. I’ve not actually listened to this. And probably won’t.

Van Morrison: Inarticulate Speech of the Heart – Album number 14 from 1983, contains four instrumentals so I guess Van was a bit lazy on the singing front.

David Bowie: Let’s Dance – Album number 15 from Bowie, released in 1983, and quite the smash for him. WIKI: Bowie felt he had to continue to pander to the new mass audience he acquired with the album, which led to him releasing two further solo albums in 1984 and 1987 which, despite their relative commercial success, did not sell as well as Let’s Dance, were poorly received by critics at the time and subsequently dismissed by Bowie himself as his “Phil Collins years”. Ha!

Leadbelly: Leadbelly – This compilation is from 1970, and contains some pretty good stuff. I do need to hear more of Huddie William Ledbetter’s songs. He certainly led an interesting life, killing one of his relatives at one point.

Simon & Garfunkel: Bridge Over Troubled Water – Fifth and final album from these two, released in 1970 it has a few well known songs and is a great listen. Art was filming Catch-22 so Paul wrote all of the tunes apart from one cover. Not sure if Art really wrote stuff anyway. Paul certainly looks in charge on the artwork.

Album Count 2016: 294
