The Weekly Playlist – Nov. 21 to Nov. 27

A plague of Rush dominated the personal airwaves this week starting with the second and longest leg of our tour south for Thanksgiving on Sunday. I continued with the three men from Willowdale during the week and 90s influenced our trip home today.

  1. Rush – various albums

Hold Your Fire and Test for Echo helped pass the time on Sunday along the 5 freeway in California and when we got in range of 95.5 KLOS, classic Rock for Southern California, I tried the station and Metallica’s “One” was playing! We left KLOS on for a bit switching back and forth with 106.7 KROQ. (One time very popular radio stations in the Southland. I’m not so sure anymore though.) At any rate, I later listened to Fly By Night, Caress of Steel and Rush’s debut album during the week.

  1. Athey Music – Goodness & Mercy

My wife bought the Athey Music album at their concert a few weeks ago and brought it with us. After more than eight hours in the car and hitting our second traffic jam in Los Angeles my patience was spent so she quickly popped the CD in. It worked and staved off the erupting volcano.

  1. Collective Soul – Hints, Allegations & Things Left Unsaid

I don’t think I’ve ever actually listened to this album all the way through. It was not as good as Blood. At any rate, since I didn’t bring enough 80s music for the Thanksgiving road trip, (see last week’s Weekly Playlist) the second and longest leg of my travels on Sunday brought the 90s which continued for the first and longest leg return home today…

  1. Gin Blossoms – New Miserable Experience

…bringing in Gin Blossoms’ smash New Miserable Experience which got played twice back-to-back. The Gins already have dates for the 30th anniversary tour of the album. Seems like yesterday they embarked on the 25th Anniversary Tour. Can’t wait!

  1. Semisonic – Feeling Strangely Fine

I don’t think I’ve ever actually listened to this album all the way through. OK,in the past I tended to buy albums and get stuck on the single(s) and go no further. This is what a road trip brings!

  1. Jeremy Camp – When You Speak

The review of the 2021 albums reviews continues. Read the review.

  1. Full props to your wife as well Andrew taking on that Caress of Steel album inside a confined space. lol. I still have never owned that Collective Soul one either. Shine is such a killer track as was the next album which was self titled I believe.
    Safe journeys pal..

  2. Long road trips are a great time to listen to albums. You were in my neck of the woods – sort of. Sadly, because of the near-constant heavy traffic, getting into L.A. & Orange County from Palm Springs is a major pain.

  3. Collective Soul’s only hit was off the Hints album. “Shine” makes them a one hit wonder I believe. And you are right that this album isn’t their best. It got them noticed, but they did so many better albums.
