Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Following the success of “Wish You Were Here,” Pink Floyd returned to the studio following extensive touring and delivered a lengthy concept album, the classic, “Animals.” This album hit record store shelves on January 21, 1977, and is exceptional, extremely exceptional in that to us, it represents a musical facsimile of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” crossed with H. G. Wells’ “Island of Dr. Moreau,” in that it deals with humans but in animal form and the revenge they might enact on their persecutors. We hope you will seek this album out by visiting your favorite site for the all-time greatest rock-and-roll albums as we know you are going to enjoy it as much as we did back then and still do now. We thank you.

[i] Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican rebels over the French Foreign Legion, troops fighting for Emperor Maximillian. In modern times, restaurants and bars have given it new life so they can increase alcohol and food sales. Police departments across the land make mass arrests of drunken drivers, thus increasing local municipality coffers.
[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.
[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011. Please look for them and enjoy.
[iv] See previous footnote.
[v] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013. Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.
[vi] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.
