Saturday Night Music Club #36: Third Anniversary Episode!

Three years! Wow! Thank you for tuning in over the last 36 episodes of Saturday Night Music Club - there are plenty more to come.

Because it's the third anniversary, we decided to feature 'third records' - meaning the album has to be third album in an artist's catalog.

As always, the episode begins with the trivia contest! If you'd like to check out any of the albums we featured, I've provided clickable album covers below the video. If you missed our giant Best Albums of far feature, then click here. Enjoy!

Planet Rotations #213 & 214

In the age of digital music, we tend to skip through albums, listening to one or two tracks - missing some of the deeper cuts that may be brilliant. We are huge fans of the album format, and love to experience the entire collection the way the artist intended. Listening to one or two songs is like randomly reading a few chapters of a book and expecting to understand the completed work. Like all music lovers, we love to share what we're listening to and discover some new things from friends. Normally, Sarah and I post 5 records each, but since we're a week behind, we're doubling down! You'll also notice a Spotify player at the bottom, which features a song from each album. This will be an ongoing playlist that you can follow directly on Spotify. Please put your own lists in the comments below, or interact at the Life On This Planet Facebook or Twitter. 

Be sure to also subscribe to our Youtube Channel, for video features - Friday On The Turntable, Saturday Night Music Club and a whole lot more. I hope you enjoy. - Bret
