J.D.’s Music Monday Picks

Hey everybody, this is J.D. King from The Olms… I love music! I’ve been passionate about collecting it since I was a young lad, it was like fuel then, and still is to me now. We here at The Olms Corporation skyscraper, in between hostile takeovers, sit in our cushy chairs high above the bustling metropolis and find our meditation atop the clouds listening to all kinds of music on all sorts of mediums. Be it 78s, LPs, 45s, reel to reel, cylinders, what have you, music enriches our lives, no question, and it’s a pleasure for me to share some of my favorite recordings with you. 

*I personally suggest listening to these on vinyl, reel to reel or another higher medium other than digital by the way. You’ll thank yourself later for doing so, trust me.

To start our weekly feature:

Annette Hanshaw - “Would You Like To Take A Walk?”

A beautiful, well recorded piece in time, sung by a truly pure sounding singer usually accompanied by an incredible band during the late 1920’s. Everything she’s done possess an endearing quality, and most of her records end with her saying “That’s All”,… great. Try to find 78’s!

This Week’s Pick: Paul McCartney - “Eat At Home”

I listen to the album “RAM” on my reel to reel machine on 7 ½ speed mastered to AMPEX tape. I gotta say, wow. Super hifi beauty enveloping for your ears, sounds like candy and cushions, but rocking!
