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 - Stars In Her Eyes (1998)
Import CD Single from the UK
Even when he's doing best Oasis imitation, Nick Heyward always puts out great music. The first track is from Heyward's album The Apple Bed, the others are available only on this single.
Tracks: Stars In Her Eyes sounds like it could have been on Sgt Pepper. Shine and The Brightest Pearl are other pop gems; I can't believe they didn't make it to the album. Go ahead and skip the final track, ironically titled Going Somewhere.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: I'm such a Heyward fan, that I would scour the Internet back in the mid to late '90s (when the Internet was still new - 14.4KB dial-up, anyone?) looking for CD singles from sites like CDNow.com or CDUniverse.com. The Internet turned me from a simple fan to a compulsive completist.
