Sade – Love Deluxe In 1992, the musical landscape appeared to be suffering from a mild case of schizophrenia.

Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle

By | Uncategorized | 185 Comments

Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle So where to start? The Zombies were in a bit of a bad place in 1967. Odessey and Oracle was the result of frustration.

Meditations on Revolver by Alexandra Stieber

By | Uncategorized | 6,543 Comments
