R.E.M. - MTV Unplugged The Complete Sessions 1991 & 2001

You usually come here to find the best eartasting singles of the day. Once in awhile something special happens. You know these guys, and this CD has both fantastic sound and great performances. Hearing these acoustic executions of the hits, one can only wonder what was going on that they weren't officially released back in the day.

Get the CD while it's on sale. The mp3 version is inexplicably selling for twice the cost of the cd on Amazon today. Excellent value for powerful taste of musical history.

R.E.M. - MTV Unplugged 1991 & 2001

Santana - Corazón

Carlos gave us a masterpiece with Shape Shifter (2012). Shape Shifter belongs in every home music library. The problem with masterpieces is they do not make money for the artists during their lifetime. So, we need the occasional foray into great journeyman level work by a master in the area of pop music.

The entire CD of Corazón (2014) is a fun way to spend an hour hearing a master field his way through every style of pop music thrown his way. There's no doubting his commitment to making everyone sound their absolute best.

Personally, I hope he makes enough cash from this sweet dessert to reward us with another full dinner masterpiece like Shape Shifter next time around. The eartaste pleasures from this CD:
