WILL YOU BE MY JEFFREY MORGAN’S
MEDIA BLACKOUT #351!
Stan “The Man”
Musial – 1920-2013 (R.I.P.) :: “'Get eight hours of sleep regularly. Keep your weight down,
run a mile a day. If you must smoke, try light cigars. They cut down on inhaling. And one last thing: Make it a point to bat
Grand Funk Railroad – Born
To Die (Capitol) :: Best album title ever!
– Crazy Shades Of Blue (Ark Road Music Productions) :: What with Valentine’s Day fast coming around the
clubhouse turn and all, you could do yourself a whole lot worse than get the jump on things by giving your significant druther
this ten pack of thoughtfully persuasive and slightly pensive romantic paeans. That’s because Russ has the kind of ragged
black coffee and unfiltered nicotine vocal delivery that just oozes been-around-the-block sincerity. It’ll also have

But then, just when you think you’ve figured out what his stripped-down singer-songwriting
game is, Brad abruptly turns the tables on you with a pseudo-psychedelic second side that takes all of the above elements
and then seditiously squeezes them into a Beatlesque mellotronic tonic as filtered through Randy Newman and the Rutles.
All this and World War Two?
Lana Del Ray – Born To Die (Interscope) :: Best album title ever!
Be seeing you!
