Top 5 “J” Artists
A strong letter, perhaps the strongest, for male solo artists. Not a bad one for groups either but due to my self-imposed limit of 5, a lot of otherwise deserving artists are left out.
5. John, Elton
Few have reached the peaks attained by Sir Reginald Kenneth Dwight in the early 70s.
4. Johnson, Jack
The boxer? One of Ron Burgundy’s fists? The defenseman on the Columbus Blue Jackets? None of the above as in this case it’s the singer/songwriter/surfer. The soundtrack for stress relief.
3. The Jam
More gushing to follow in album review #324.
2. Joel, Billy
Don’t worry, I already quoted the W.W.B.J.D. line from Community when I reviewed The Stranger! I don’t normally recommend compilations but I happily make an exception for the terrific Billy Joel Greatest Hits Volume I & II.
The Jam, Jay Z and possibly another ‘J’ are on tap for the week ahead, enjoy!
