The Album List

Ok, so I'm showing my age with the title. Perhaps it should read "The CD List", but you get my point. I've been fortunate to have lived through many years of great music. I decided to compile a list of the albums that I believe every lover of "popular" music should have in their library......they are in no particular order.

There Is A Quiet

It is November.......
As dusk settles in and night comes early
There is a quiet

It is a quiet full of soothing sounds......
The rustle of leaves scattering as a deer searches for the last acorn of the forest
A scramble on the roof as the squirrel rambles home to the warmth of the nest

It is a quiet full of soothing aromas....
The wood smoke from a nearby chimney
The fragrance of the last of October's flowers

It is a quiet full of soothing comfort......
The warmth of a flannel-covered bed
The touch of a loving body with the trace scent of the day's activities

It is a quiet full of peace.....
The forgiving crackle of the evening fire
The sparkle of heaven's lights

There Is A Quiet.....and it is mine.

Ultraphonic-The Boys from Stockbridge

I don't usually endorse a product (or any particular person) on my site. There's my disclaimer for which I am about to ignore.

Occasionally a band comes along that makes you turn your head and say "WOW! Who's that playing?". I have recently been exposed to a band out of Stockbridge, Georgia through my brother, who has been doing some technical work with the boys. I am impressed.

The Boys from Stockbridge are called Ultraphonic and deserve a listen. Their website is located at:

On this site you can download free MP3s for your listening pleasure....and I encourage you to do just that. This band is loaded with unique talent and their sound is something that has been missing from the stage for many years.

Give the boys your ears and listen to just a few of their original tunes as well as their remake of Neil Young's classic "Old Man" and I'm sure you'll agree that Ultraphonic is about to take off. You'll definitely return to the site for more.

Let the "Ultraphonic Revolution" begin! Posted by Picasa
