Imagination is the fourth studio album by American singer La Toya Jackson, released in 1986.

AllMusic Review:
On her early '80s albums for Polydor, Jackson was able to make up for what she lacked in vocal talent with an energetic, youthful approach to the music -- in part inspired by able, live backing musicians. As the '80s rolled on and synthesizer arrangements became the standard, however, she seemed to lose that touch. Tracks here like "On a Night Like This" and "Baby Sister" are too cute and overdone to be taken seriously. And "Love Talk" is a weak attempt at being a midnight-hour, come-hither slow jam. The album's lone notable track is the catchy "How Do I Tell Them," which, with its instantly memorable chorus and gripping rhythmic structure, is hard to resist. Otherwise, it's mostly disposable material.
La Toya Yvonne Jackson (age 63) is the fifth and middle child of the Jackson family (in the center of this 1977 photo)...

Jackson aspired to be an attorney specializing in business law. She attended college for a short time before her father insisted that she pursue a career in show business like the rest of the family. Michael and La Toya would not move out of the family's Encino, Los Angeles, California home until they were 30 and 31 respectively. She dated Diana Ross' brother, Chico. She also dated Bobby DeBarge and was the inspiration for Switch's 1979 hit "I Call Your Name".

She released nine studio albums over the course of fifteen years. Her most successful release was her self-titled debut album (1980). La Toya only wanted her first name on the album. "I begged just to have it 'La Toya'. But my father said, 'It's your last name. You got to use it.' She provided backing vocals on brother Michael's 1983 solo hit "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)".

Her 1985 single "Baby Sister" was a notable success, from her 1986 album Imagination, released just before Jackson's record label, Private-I, went bankrupt.

Jackson posed for Playboy magazine in 1989 and again in 1991 to promote her New York Times Best Seller La Toya: Growing Up in the Jackson Family. In a 1994 video for the magazine, she became one of the first celebrities to have a Playboy video released.

La Toya later released two albums, one of country music, From Nashville to You, and another of Motown hits, Stop in the Name of Love, in the mid-1990s.

La Toya Jackson was one of the first siblings present at Reagan-UCLA Medical Center on June 25, 2009, after brother Michael Jackson was pronounced dead after suffering cardiac arrest. She was named as the informant on her brother's death certificate. Jackson requested a second autopsy to be carried out after noting suspicious medical paraphernalia in Michael's rented house, evasive behavior by his doctors, and discovering that $2 million in cash and jewels had gone missing. The Los Angeles County Coroner ruled Jackson's death a homicide weeks later.

Abacab is the eleventh studio album from the English rock band Genesis, released in 1981.

Genesis initially wrote an album's worth of material which they subsequently discarded because they saw themselves as becoming "a caricature of ourselves". They made a decision to throw out any songs which sounded like anything they had done before. The album continued the band's stylistic shift toward a radio-friendly pop music sound. Influences of Brian Eno, Talking Heads, and Peter Gabriel's solo material are evident.

"No Reply at All" features the Earth, Wind & Fire horn section.

Rolling Stone praised the album for shedding the "ivory-tower artistry" of their previous albums, drawing inspiration from popular contemporaries such as XTC and The Police.

"No Reply at All" was performed live by Phish as a tribute to Genesis at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2010 induction ceremony.

Next is the third studio album by Journey, released in 1977.

The band continued the formula from 1976's Look into the Future but this album also retains some of their jazzy progressive rock style from the first album.

It is the last album to exclusively feature Gregg Rolie on lead vocals. "Spaceman" and "Nickel and Dime" were the two singles released from Next.

Gregg Rolie – keyboards, lead vocals
Neal Schon – electric and acoustic guitars, lead vocals on "I Would Find You" and "Karma"
Ross Valory – bass guitar, backing vocals
Aynsley Dunbar – drums, percussion

Robert Fleischman joined Journey shortly after the album's release as a songwriter and the group's first dedicated frontman, sharing lead vocal duties with Rolie during subsequent live shows. All of the songs on the album vanished from the band's live setlist after 1979 and two ("Spaceman" and "Here We Are") have never been performed live.

In late 1977, Journey hired Steve Perry as their new lead singer. Rolie left in 1978.

Gregg Rolie (age 72) is an American singer and keyboardist. A year after graduating from high school in 1965, Rolie joined Carlos Santana and others to form the Santana Blues Band, which was later shortened simply to Santana. As a co-founding member of Santana, Rolie was part of the band's first wave of success, including an appearance at the Woodstock Music and Art Festival in 1969. He was their original lead vocalist, with his voice appearing on well-known Santana songs such as "Black Magic Woman", "Oye Como Va", "No One To Depend On", and "Evil Ways". He also co-founded Journey, helmed rock group The Storm, and currently performs with his Gregg Rolie Band and with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band.

Rolie is a two-time inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, having been inducted both as a member of Santana in 1998 and as a member of Journey in 2017.

Upstairs at Eric's is the debut album by British synthpop duo Yaz (known in the UK as Yazoo), released in 1982.

AllMusic Review:
Vince Clarke can claim involvement in two stunning debuts in only two years: Depeche Mode's Speak and Spell and Yaz's Upstairs at Eric's. While Speak and Spell is, by far, the more consistent record, Upstairs at Eric's is wholly more satisfying, beating the Depeche record on substance and ambition, and is light years ahead in emotion.

"Don't Go" and "Situation" are absolutely killer with Clarke's bubbling synth and singer Alison Moyet's bluesy and powerful delivery. They're both rightful dance floor staples, and have since undergone numerous remixes, both official and bootleg. "Bring Your Love Down (Didn't I)" is just as good a thumper, adding a wonderful mumbled bridge that shows how much Clarke enjoyed messing with pop music. The softer "Only You" would have sounded silly and robotic if it had appeared on Speak and Spell, but Moyet's vocals makes it bittersweet and engaging. The clumsier experimental tracks make most people head for the hits collection, but to do so would be to miss the album's great twist. The loony tape loop of "I Before E Except After C," the skeletal "Winter Kills," and a disruptive phone call in the middle of the naïve "Bad Connection" offer up more complex and intimate moments.

Like its curious cover, Upstairs at Eric's presents a fractured, well-lit, and paranoid urban landscape.

R.E.O./T.W.O. is the second studio album released by the Illinois-based rock band REO Speedwagon, released in 1972.

The album introduced Kevin Cronin as vocalist and contributing songwriter to the band, replacing Terry Luttrell. Notable tracks on the album include Richrath’s political “Golden Country” as well as "Like You Do". Both songs, as well as Cronin’s “Music Man”, are frequently part of the band's current setlist.

AllMusic Review:
As soon as REO Speedwagon's second album -- aptly titled T.W.O. -- kicks off with "Let Me Ride," it's clear that the band has made some significant strides in gaining a personality. Part of this is due to singer Terry Luttrell being swapped out for Kevin Cronin, whose keening tenor is markedly different from Luttrell's bluesy gargle, and part is due to three of the songs, dramatic multi-sectioned rockers, being more distinguished than the pedestrian boogie of the debut. That boogie hasn't been abandoned -- the group takes the swing out of Chuck Berry's "Little Queenie," which brings it closer to the anonymous thud that characterizes Gary Richrath's "Flash Tan Queen," along with much of the rest of the album. Although REO don't always succeed when opening up their music -- "Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometimes)" winds up getting stuck in the murk -- Cronin's two side-openers of "Let Me Ride" and "Music Man" point the way toward the group's classic sound.
Neal Doughty (age 73) is an American keyboardist, best known as a founding member of the rock band REO Speedwagon and the only member to have played on every album. He formed the band in the fall of 1967, with original drummer Alan Gratzer.

Muscle Beach Party is an album by Annette Funicello, released in 1963 and reissued in 1984.

Muscle Beach Party is the second of seven beach party films, starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello.

Synopsis: Frankie (Frankie Avalon), Dee Dee (Annette Funicello), and the beach party gang hit Malibu Beach for another summer of surfing and no jobs only to find their secret surfing spot threatened by a gang of bodybuilders, led by the dim-witted coach Jack Fanny (Don Rickles). A bored Italian Countess (Luciana Paluzzi) is trying to steal Frankie from Dee Dee and, much to everyone's surprise, he seems more than happy to go along with it. She's going to turn him into a teen idol, not unlike Frankie Avalon's real-life persona. Due to some razzing from his former surfing buddies and sage advice from wealthy S.Z. Matts (Buddy Hackett), Frankie sees the error of his ways and goes back to his American beach bunny, Dee Dee.

The film also includes cameos by Dick Dale ("The King of the Surf Guitar", died in 2019) and Little Stevie Wonder, making his film debut at the age of 13.

Annette Funicello (October 22, 1942 – April 8, 2013) was an American actress and singer. Funicello began her professional career as a child performer at the age of twelve. She rose to prominence as one of the most popular Mouseketeers on the original Mickey Mouse Club. By the end of the first season of The Mickey Mouse Club, she was receiving 6,000 letters a month - more than any other Mouseketeer.

Paul Anka was noted to have a crush on her, however, Walt Disney overprotected Annette, which broke Paul's heart. This resulted in his song "Puppy Love", which was inspired by his hopeless romantic crush on Annette.

As a teenager, she transitioned to a successful career as a singer as well as establishing herself as a film actress, popularizing the successful "Beach Party" genre alongside co-star Frankie Avalon during the mid-1960s.

In 1992, Funicello announced that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She died of complications from the disease on April 8, 2013. Media coverage of Funicello's death was almost completely overshadowed by that of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher who died on the same day.

Home of the Brave is the third album by Jody Miller, released in 1965.

Jody Miller (age 78) is an American country music singer. Inspired by the music of Joan Baez, learned to play guitar at the age of 14. Miller began her career in the early 1960s as a folk/pop singer, singing in the Los Angeles area and appearing on Tom Paxton's television series. She released her first album on Capitol Records in 1964 and had a modest pop hit that year with "He Walks Like a Man".

At a composers' competition, Miller arranged a version of "Io Che Non Vivo (Senza Te)" which became a hit for Dusty Springfield recorded an English version in 1966 as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me". Also in 1965, Jody Miller released an answer record to Roger Miller's (no relation) blockbuster hit "King of the Road", titled "Queen of the House", which became her signature hit. Miller won the Grammy award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for the song in 1966.

Although she became famous for "Queen of the House," her response to Roger Miller's "King of the Road," Jody Miller pioneered a fusion of folk, country, and pop that set the stage for the folky country-pop of the '70s.

Miller released 13 studio albums between 1963 and 1977 and charted 27 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

In 1999, the Country Gospel Music Association inducted Miller into its Hall of Fame, along with Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, and Andy Griffith.

The Great Timber Rush is an album by Timberline, released in 1977.

The band Timberline was formed by Jim and Chuck Salestrom in Nebraska, in 1971. Timberline recorded their first album for CBS, The Great Timber Rush, in Hollywood in 1977. The album was produced by legendary record producer Bones Howe (gaining 20 Gold and Platinum awards with Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Mamas and Papas, and Juice Newton), and guest musicians included Hal Blaine, John McEuen and Michael Boddicker. Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary penned the liner notes.

Timberline toured as the opening act for Dolly Parton to promote the album, which opened the door for lead singer Jim Salestrom's career when Timberline disbanded in 1978, a victim of the disco craze.

Jim Salestrom, lead singer of the band Timberline from 1971 to 1977, performed in Dolly Parton's band from 1979 to 1991, as a singer and musician, playing acoustic, electric, and high-string guitars and banjo. Jim sang the opening song for the movie "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas". He has performed with John Denver, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Livingston Taylor, Kenny Rogers, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Tom Rush, John McEuen, Peter Yarrow, Pure Prairie League, and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

He has performed for Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, George Bush Sr., Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. In 2007, Jim was honored to sing John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" at the Colorado House of Representatives, as the song was made an official Colorado state song.

His album, All The Colors, was nominated for a Grammy in 1997.

Don't know if this counts but just purchased and watching the blueray David Bowie - A Reality Tour

I saw him multiple times over the years but for this show I had perfect row 1 seats and he looked and sound great. So glad I saw him one last time. A few months later he had his heart attack and pretty much retired from touring.

Dead Letter Office is a rarities and B-sides collection by R.E.M., released in 1987.

The album is essentially a collection of many additional recordings R.E.M. made pre-Murmur to Lifes Rich Pageant that were outtakes or released as flip sides to their singles internationally. Many of the tracks are favorite cover versions indicating the band's disparate influences and musical tastes, including three Velvet Underground covers, and songs by Pylon, Aerosmith and Roger Miller.

Guitarist Peter Buck composed wry, self-deprecating (and, in one instance, apologetic) liner notes to the songs on the album. Buck initially had doubts about releasing it, saying he felt as though people would perceive the album as the band "trying to cash in, maybe to sell some records," as the ultimate release date predated that of the band's final studio album with I.R.S., Document, by a mere five months.
Wow, it's been almost exactly 4 years since I last listened to this one... 1/16/2016.
Great album. Hard to believe it's 33 years old.
I promise it won't take another leap year before I play it again.

Live From Austin, TX is a live album by Steve Earle, released on vinyl in 2017.

The album, recorded on 12 September 1986 - his first appearance on Austin City Limits, captures the excitement and free spirit of that first seminal album, Guitar Town, which was nothing less than a collection of personal odysseys.

He was certainly a musical renegade from day one, and that’s one thing about him that hasn’t changed. This performance displays the vintage Steve Earle sound that paved the way for a new generation of country rockers willing to buck the Nashville system.

AllMusic Review:
Steve Earle wasn't yet one of the most respected, intelligent, and controversial voices in Nashville when he stepped on-stage for a taping of the long-running public television series Austin City Limits in the fall of 1986 -- back then, he was a promising newcomer who was touring behind his well-received debut album, Guitar Town, and was recording the follow-up in fits and starts when he had downtime from the road.

Live from Austin TX, part of a series from the rich Austin City Limits archive, captures Earle when his confidence and stage smarts were not quite what they would be later on, and though there are more than a few great songs in this set, many of the tunes that would become cornerstones of his later live show (especially the mature work from his post-"vacation in the ghetto" period) haven't been written yet, and frankly this edition of the Dukes wasn't the strongest he would ever have.

But Earle's energy and enthusiasm is well in evidence on this set, his voice is in solid shape, and the performance builds up a solid head of steam as it chugs through a solid 17-song set. Live from Austin TX is hardly the definitive Steve Earle live album, but it's a fine snapshot of a major artist as he was first getting accustomed to the spotlight, and the talent, swagger, and conscience that would mark his best known work are all in evidence here, even if they haven't yet reached sharp focus.
