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 - A Hard Days Nick (1996)
A CD single with bonus tracks of Beatles' covers, packaged in a poor knock off of the Hard Day's Night album cover.
Tracks: The single, Rollerblade, is a great song, but the lyrics seem a bit dated. Do people still rollerblade? The first Beatles' cover, If I Needed Someone has some fuzzy reverb guitar noise, making it sound like Oasis covers the Beatles. The covers of All My Loving and Nowhere Man are very straight ahead, including note-for-note copies of guitar solos and the same vocal harmonies as the originals. In other words, there's not much need for these covers.
