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.

Various Artists - Feeling High: The Psychedelic Sound of Memphis (2012)

An impulse buy that didn't work out for me.  24 tracks of psychedelic garage rock from Memphis, 1967-69.  Stax/Volt soul and Elvis, it ain't.  I'm not saying it's bad (Allmusic gives it 4 stars); I'm saying it's not my bag, baby. 

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart:  Did not chart


Samples available here.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: purchased on a recent trip to Chicago at the wonderful Dusty Groove.

  1. Didn't think this one would rope your goat, so to speak. For once I was right. (Please note this on my permanent record.) You just don't seem like a Nuggets kinda guy.

    Hope you are not out too many $imoleon$.
