Planet Rotations #3

Over the last couple of weeks, I presented a challenge to my readers over on the Life On This Planet Facebook Page. In the age of playing selected songs from iTunes, we tend to skip through albums, or just listen 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 album the way the artist intended it. Listening to just one or two songs is like randomly reading a few chapters of a book and expecting to understand the completed work.

Like any music nerd, I love to share what I'm listening to and discover some new things from friends. Here's what was in my playlist for this week. Please put your lists in the comments section below, or interact over at the Life On This Planet Facebook Page. If you're just tuning in, start keeping track for next week. Cheers, Bret.
