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. I am a big fan 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 any music lover, I love to share what I'm listening to and discover some new things from friends. If you've been following the LOTP Facebook page, then you already know that Sarah Quarrie is collaborating with me on the blog. So here are 5 records from both of our playlists for this week. 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 my Youtube Channel, where I post video features - discussing records from my playlist, new vinyl finds, Friday On The Turntable & Saturday Night Music Club episodes and a whole lot more. I hope you enjoy. - Bret
