Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Nick Heyward - Today (1997)
Nick Heyward is a fantastic singer/songwriter. 2 of the 3 songs are taken from Nick's CD The Apple Bed. It sounds like like Nick prepared to write this CD by listening to nothing but songs from the Beatles' 1965-67 releases and anything by Oasis. While that isn't necessarily a bad thing; it certainly is much different music from his '80s stuff.
Tracks: Today is a nice track, but I prefer Dear Miss Finland, which sounds like something off Revolver plus a lot of fuzzy feedback. Listening to the non-album track, 3 Colours, it is easy to see why it was not included on the CD and relegated to the final track on a CD single.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: This single reminds of early music websites like CDNow and Music Boulevard (both now defunct), which I would use to search for CD singles such as this one.
