  1. Reblogged this on texthistory and commented:
    It seems to be a great year for the big beasts of yesteryear to deliver some of their best work. Elton’s latest is wonderfully varied and a lot of big issues tackled here with his usual skill and panache. Enjoy.


  2. It has been a great year for those classic rockers, Miss Barb. My man, Bob Dylan, released Tempest this year. Some of Tempest songs rank right up there with his best work. T-Bone Burnett is vastly underrated. Among many other works, didn’t he produce the soundtrack for “Oh Brother where Art Thou?” Thanks for your great work!
