Yesterday I started my new series – Great Kiwi Albums You Must Revisit – hosted by the good folk at Phantom Billstickers. Each Friday morning I’ll add a new great Kiwi album that I think is worth checking out, revisiting – or possibly it might promote you to hear it for the first time. It’s about the emotional connection; it’s not about the silly NZ Music Awards or sales or even albums that were positively reviewed at the time. It’s about the great albums that in some cases slipped under the radar – or just deserve another go now; a memory-jog of sorts.
Previously I wrote about Classic Albums I Can’t Ever Listen To Again and that was a lot of fun. After 12 weeks I thought it time to change it up – do something else.
So we’ll aim for 12 weeks of Great Kiwi Albums You Must Revisit. It might even go on for longer than 12 weeks, who knows at this point…
Yesterday’s opening post was about the Stereo Bus’ debut, self-titled album. Long a favourite. It was fun to write about that, to share some stories.
So sign up with Phantom Billstickers’ Facebook page to check out the weekly updates from me and so many more great posts on that page from other writers and from the Phantom crew.
