"What we gonna tell you Mama."  lol

'Well I was going to write about   VINYL RECORDS sales increase.   and Susie Wake Up appeared.
Anyhow !  ..... some Music news.

Vinyl records sales soared in 2020 during the Pandemic year growing 29% to 626 million and surpassing  COMPACT discs sales and revenue. Said the Record industry Ass of America.
.....  At 20 Emmanuel is part of the New generation  drawn to the warm sound , retro vibe  of vinyl records, joining older Americans who grew up with that format.

....        Placing a LP on a turntable and speakers that you put together with your receiver /Amp is superior to the CD digital  music experience.            .....To me.

I've fallen in love, with that big beautiful wild yagga-yagga head! And she can sing too.

Now watch a 14 year old kid with braces cover Freddie Mercury and kill it.

Re: Classic crossover of rock and disco!

He aiit, but don't drop out of rock school just yet kid!

Getting back to beautiful women for a minute (always never far from the front of my mind lol!), I'll readily admit my biases: Young, Gifted  - and Black! An unreconstructed child of the seventies, and a lover of that beautiful thing that nearly became extinct but thankfully now is making a comeback: The Afro! I love a woman with what we call in Jamaica a yagga-yagga head: a big wild wooly halo of blackness around her face! Kinda like this.

Okay, now back to music, I've been saying for years this is the single best, most incendiary rock performance of all time. Now the world is catching up to me. Prince is The Man.

Prince was, indeed, peerless.  The best of the best without a doubt.



Yes, Freddie Mercury covers Freddie Mercury better than anyone but, c'mon, for anyone to even attempt that song takes guts and that School of Rock kid was very, very good.

Re: Classic crossover of rock and disco!

Maybe you just hate covers.  Some people do.  Let's test that theory.  If you don't find this something that Otis Redding would have been proud to hear, I am just going to assume you are anti-cover. smile

My favourite cover of Bohemian Rhapsody.
This man could have used a little instrumental.
