    Default Prekambriums album journal - from 1955 to present

    lol.

    Allright, so I wanted to make a journal where I present one record for every year from 1955 until the present day.
    I will post a record, with links to some tracks and maybe share some words about those records. Maybe 1 pr day or something.
    I hope whoever sees this thread will join in and discuss the albums I am posting, that is the point, I want to hear everyones thoughts on these albums!
    I will finish it off with my favorite album of all time I guess.

    The reason for starting with 1955 is that it was around this time(as far as I know) that the first real album LPs came out. So its a good place to start.

    OK, first record is:

    1955

    Frank Sinatra

    "In the wee small hours"


    Tracklist:

    1. In the wee small hours of the morning
    2. Mood indigo
    3. Glad to be unhappy
    4. I get along with you very well
    5. Deep in a dream
    6. I see your face before me
    7. Can't we be friends?
    8. When your lover has gone
    9. What is this thing called love
    10. Last night when we were young
    11. I'll be around
    12. III wind
    13. It never entered my mind
    14. Dancing on the ceiling
    15. I'll never be the same
    16. This love of mine

    I love this album!
    Fantastic compositions led by a fantastic voice.
    To everyone who never heard this record: please check it out. You will definitely not regret it!

    Here are a few tracks from the record:

    I gave it a listen, im slightly biased as i have a soft spot for Frank.

    Laid back is an understatement, i dont think ive ever heard a more laid back album. In fact, this album is more stoned than i am, and thats not easy. It gave me the same kind of feeling a really great winters day gives me, not christmas just winter. I liked it alot.

    Id love to see what Unfan would say about this album.

    I get the winter feeling too.
    This album has a great atmosphere and I can feel a lot of passion in the music.
    One of the nicest albums I know. Definitely a favourite and a great way to start this whole thing off in my opinion.

    Would be cool to see Unfans opinion yeah.

    Time to present a new record.

    1956

    Duke Ellington

    "Ellington at Newport"



    Tracklist:

    1. Festival junction
    2. Blues to be there
    3. Newport up
    4. Jeep's blues
    5. Diminuendo and crescendo in blue


    There were a lot of great records released in 1956, and it was extremely hard to choose only one. But I landed on "Ellington at Newport" because that is the best one of that year in my opinon.
    This record is fantastic. It's a classic jazz record and pretty much perfect in my opinion. I love every second of it.

    I didnt give it one listen i gave it two. I can apprieciate the obvious when it comes to this kind of music, but i cant seem to get into it, i start to drift off.

    I read a little on this album, apparently it was a very important performace for him and resurrected his career.


    Didnt do it for me.
