During lockdown I've been listening to a lot more older music

This summer I took a deep dive on The Hollies and I found a much better band than I expected. They were a really good singles band, just below top shelf. The thing that pleasantly surprised me is that they were actually an amazing power pop band, arguably the first great one. You just have to dig into their back catalog a bit to find it. Their albums were inconsistent, largely because they were pressed to make them at a somewhat ridiculous pace. If they were managed differently...but then we might not have gotten CSN(Y).

This fall it has been Chuck Berry. Sure you guys know most of his hits, but he showed a lot of range too. I think some of his greatness has been overlooked.

BB King, you are on deck.
