    Yeah, spending most of my days at the computer surfing the web, while my 17,000 "songs" in my iTunes plays.

    I've been letting it play albums alphabetically, so Friday it was McCartney's New, while today it's Chicago's "Now" (XXXVI).

    Between New and Now was

    New Adventures in Hi-Fi - R.E.M.
    Nick of Time - Bonnie Raitt
    Nicolai: Symphony In D, Overtures • Mahler: Symphonic Movements
    . . . . . . . . - Karl Anton Rickenbacher: Bamberg Symphony Orchestra
    Night and Day - Chicago
    A Night at the Opera - Queen
    The Nightfly - Donald Fagen
    The Nightmare Before Christmas - Danny Elfman
    No Complaints Whatsoever - Jan Garrett and J.D. Martin
    No Direction Home - Bob Dylan
    No World Order - Todd Rundgren
    Nomads Indians Saints - Indigo Girls
    Northern Seascape - Jim Wilson

    and a bunch of individual tracks from albums that start with "N".

    Now's not a bad album . . . way more adventurous than Chicago's ballad-y stuff from the 1980s. I wish it had more of that 'dirt' that their youthful exuberance gave their early albums.

    Yeah, still missing Terry Kath, I guess.

    Wonderful music!
    Since posting this list I have hammered these albums and my oh my how enjoyable it has been. In the midst of the current circumstances I am now awaiting delivery of a highly praised live recording from the mid 70's 'Live from the Plant'......And it includes the simply wonderful 'Teardrops will fall'...…….So hopefully in a few hours it will become my 'current listening'.

    Murray's most contemporary sounding record featuring electric funk/blues, reggae, and some 80s Miles influenced fusion tracks.

    Really rather inspiring Senza......I am currently listening to Relayer by Yes. However I may have to look to your current listening for guidance ie Weather Report and Stevie Wonder......you have also reminded me that years ago I had a great fondness for a particular Benson album 'in flight ' I think was the title!

    Thanks, that was a good afternoon of music.

    Stevie Wonder in the 1970s was a miraculous period of music making. Talking Book, Music of My Mind, Innervisions, Fullfillingness' First Finale, Songs in the Key of Life. All fantastic.

    I have to admit I am not that familiar with much of the music of The Weather Report. I only own that one I listened to yesterday: Heavy Weather. I have listened to a couple others albums only. I will rectify that deficiency soon enough.

    My parents owned that George Benson LP, and listened to it often. I got a second hand CD a few years ago. Again, I'm not that familiar with his entire output. I should listen to more.

    Relayer is great, but I overdid the English prog rock music last year, and I'm taking a break from my "bread and butter" music. I'll return to my comfort food soon enough, but I'm ready to explore some other music first.

    Revisiting a great blues record I played a lot in the late 90s. Features Gregg Allman on one track.
