Is it baseball season yet?
2½ things to start 2018 off with (Jan. 2018)
2018 is upon us and that means 2½ things.
- There Goes Rhymin' Simon (1973/Columbia)
- Making its rounds on my turntable once more. Features my favorite Paul Simon love song that isn't "Kathy's Song."
- Aja (1977/ABC)
- A masterpiece of jazz rock, featuring my favorite Steely Dan song of all time, "Deacon Blues."
- The Nightfly (1982/WB)
- An awesome debut album by Donald Fagen, half of Steely Dan.
- The Joshua Tree (1987/Island)
- The only U2 album I care about, even slightly.
- Jane Eyre (Charlotte Brontë, 1847)
- A coming-of-age tale about the rare liberated Victorian woman. I'm getting a lot more out of this one as an adult than I did as a dumb teenager.
- What Color Is Your Parachute? (Richard Bolles, 2012)
- The best career advice there is, period.
