Jeff Lynn's ELO "ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE" is the Album Feature for January 27 twenty sixteen.   This is a new album.

 

The Album Feature for January 20 is The Eagles debut album. Founding member Glenn Frey passed away on January 18.

 

Steeped in the country-rock sound of the Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers (guitarist/banjo player Bernie Leadon had been a member of the latter) and the burgeoning So-Cal singer-songwriter movement (Jackson Browne contributes to a pair of songs on the album), the Eagles 1972 debut is full of breezy hit singles ("Take It Easy," "Peaceful Easy Feeling") and stinging rock ("Witchy Woman," "Take the Devil"). Thanks to Leadon's presence, there's a bluegrass feel to songs like "Nightingale" and "Early Bird." Mostly, though, the album offers a sampling of the L.A. scene's laid-back early-70s optimism, with just a hint of the darkness to come. --Daniel Durchholz

 

Album Feature for January 13: David Bowie's fourth studio album. "Hunky Dory" (1971) has been described by AllMusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine as having "a kaleidoscopic array of pop styles, tied together only by Bowie's sense of vision: a sweeping, cinematic mélange of high and low art, ambiguous sexuality, kitsch, and class".    David passed away on Sunday, December 10th. His 69th birthday was January 8.

RIP Mr. Bowie
