Revisiting classic and not-so-classic albums

Listen to Riley ramble on about things he has no authority to talk about. There will be guests.

Episode 157


The Beach Boys mature, the Temptations really do sing Smokey Robinson, Otis Redding shines in comparison and the Sonics don't actually invent punk.

Then, Neil Young joins CSN, Leon Russell has an all star debut, John Cale's debut is considerably less all star and  Small Faces become Faces/

Finally, Alice Cooper goes solo, 10cc spend an awful lot of time  making pop music, KISS dress to kill your sense of taste, Tangerine Dream hears echoes, Lynyrd Skynyrd shure ain't fancy, John Cale gets rougher, Smokey Robinson rebels against funk by making a quiet storm, Jeff Beck goes jazz, Janis Ian has her biggest hit and Steely Dan continue to annoy your host.
