About Me

My photo

I'm the co-host of THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO with Dana & Carl (Sunday nights, 9 to Midnight Eastern, www.westcottradio.org).  As a freelance writer, I contributed to Goldmine magazine from 1986-2006, wrote liner notes for Rhino Records' compilation CD Poptopia!  Power Pop Classics Of The '90s, and for releases by The Flashcubes, The Finkers, Screen Test, 1.4.5., and Jack "Penetrator" Lipton.  I contributed to the books Bubblegum Music Is The Naked Truth, Shake Some Action, Lost In The Grooves, and MusicHound Rock, and to DISCoveries, Amazing Heroes, The Comics Buyer's Guide, Yeah Yeah Yeah, Comics Collector, The Buffalo News, and The Syracuse New Times.  I also wrote the liner notes for the four THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO compilation CDs, because, well, who could stop me?  My standing offer to write liner notes for a Bay City Rollers compilation has remained criminally ignored.  Still intend to write and sell a Batman story someday.

UNFINISHED AND ABANDONED: The 500 Definitive Albums Of The 1970s

This was originally distributed privately to paid supporters of Boppin' (Like The Hip Folks Do) on August 1st, 2017. Supporters of this blog receive one private post each month, at least one month before it's available to the general public. Want in this action?  Fund me, baby! 



Here's a sneak peak at a project I'll probably never return to finish. The June 10th, 1994 issue of Goldmine contained a piece I wrote about "The 200 Definitive Albums Of The 1970s." It was well-received, sparked much discussion and dissension, and was a lot of fun to write. I toyed with the idea of expanding and adapting it into a book, which I would have called Rock And Roll All Nite! The 500 Definitive Rock 'n' Soul Albums Of The 1970s. I got as far as compiling this partial list of 437 choices, and then abandoned it. 

If I were to pursue this--probably as a blog piece rather than a book--I'd likely trim it to 300 LPs, and eliminate much (not all) of the repetition among individual artists. Whaddaya think? Additions? Subtractions? Willful cutting of losses? Expansion to 1000 definitive LPs? Er--that last option's off the table, actually. But if you have opinions, I have ears. Have a nice day!
