Country music has a rich past. It can explore the passion for a truck, but can also offer a view on an awful split. So what country album is great? Which ones would you wish to own, and how valuable are they for you?(more…)
It was meant to be just a straightforward matter. We didn’t really set ourselves the challenge of selecting the full, authoritative top 10 vinyl albums for audiophiles – because in fact this is only a list of recordings from a range of hundreds or thousands – yet still it seemed similar to choosing one of your limbs you’d least like being ripped off by a bear.
We were able to pull together a compilation of the 10 albums we listened to which we believe encompass the full spectrum of formats, types, and sonic character.
The hi-fi will be placed through its paces and it will help to expand your music tastes a little. Just a side note, make sure you preserve these vinyl albums properly with an automatic record cleaning machine to keep them in great condition.(more…)

When gazing back at the portrait of Bob Dylan, one’s eyes are attracted to the mythical beauty of the music world’s brightest star.
He began off as a regular folk singer, armed with a pack of Woody Guthrie songs and a rag-tag guitar slung across his shoulder, however quickly enough, Dylan became an absolute musical legend, championing in his music the legends of the whole world.
It is Dylan’s willingness to share these tales, some far-flung, some tight to the bone, that have turned Dylan into a symbol today.
The truth is that certain citizens would be upset by the list. Not least because at Bob Dylan has much more than 10 great albums, in truth, we might double this and still produce twenty records we’re sure will beat any other artists’ own pile of work, but mostly because Bob Dylan linked people.
When he started to sing in the mid-sixties, he became a millennial voice, as time went by he gave first a primitive rock star perspective, later an outsider’s view, and eventually a sage-like glimpse of the past, present and future.
There’s a fair possibility that any single Bob Dylan fan will have various top ten lists and, because of that, it’s worth another look the best of Bob.
Below we do exactly that for our top ten Bob Dylan songs.(more…)

According to the oracle bones and cracked tortoise shells of Shang Dynasty divination (1700-1270 BCE), there exists 10 suns (Celestial Stems) and 12 moons (Earthly Branches).
The Chinese characters (oracle script) for these comprise some of the earliest examples of a written system of tracking time as a cycle.
In dreaming of these suns and moons and the never-ending spiral of time, FlowPoetry presents these ten poems loosely based on the notion of the time-transcendent rhythm of words. We hope you enjoy the tenth and final installment of this ten-part series.(more…)
