Looking for a holiday gift idea for your retro music fan? I recently reviewed three new album releases for REBEAT...
First up is Neil Diamond's new record, "Melody Road." This is classic Diamond; one of his best albums of original tracks in years, and I found myself replaying the songs over and over again in my head by the time the last track ended.
There's also a new Peter, Paul and Mary CD to enjoy as part of their 50th anniversary, which is being celebrated on public television stations across the U.S. this month. "Discovered: Live in Concert" is a collection of live songs that were previously not released to their fans with the exception of one. Like most PP&M albums, you'll giggle, get a tear in your eye, and feel uplifted by the various song selections of this iconic folk trio.
And for those looking to add a touch of 1970s funky soul to their Christmas music collection, Earth, Wind and Fire released their first seasonal album, simply titled "Holiday."
While you're at it, other staff members and I gave our picks for retro-themed holiday gift ideas...so check them out and happy shopping!
