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.

The Hot Spot: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1990)
The best soundtrack CD you've never heard of. You've probably never heard of the movie, either. No matter, here's all you need to know: this soundtrack is 40 minutes of bluesy collaboration between John Lee Hooker and Miles Freakin' Davis. Nasty. If those words alone don't convince you, and you still think you need to know more than that, click here.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Tracks: It's all good and should be listened to as a whole. Stand out tracks are Coming To Town, Harry's Philosophy, Sawmill, Bank Robbery, and Blackmail.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: This music is perfect for porch-sittin' on a hot summer night. I have used it for such an occasion many, many times. I've only seen the movie once, about ten years ago.
