Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roger Waters released an album entitled, “The Pros and Cons- the Interviews” on April 07, 2015, a CD featuring NO music but the artist himself shagging interviews from decades prior. Not always sure WHY people release these types of ‘efforts’ because very few genuinely want to delve deep into why an artist did this or did that. Still, if you could care less about the music but mostly about the man, check it out and see if it’s up your alley. Otherwise, find something else much more alluring. We thank you.
