So thanks to a longtime reader who has far too kind a heart, I have just discovered an online archive of years and years worth of scanned issues of The Magazine Formerly Known as Stereo Review.
I am not gonna post the link, lest you access all sorts of my poor scribblings that now kind of make me a little queasy.
But starting today, I will, from time to time, be posting some pieces that I think hold up.
Exhibit A in that regard: From the January 1981 issue, please enjoy my thoughts on Bruce Springsteen's The River. I worked pretty hard on this one at the time, and I think it's both perceptive and fair.
Double click on the image and you'll be able to see it and read it in the same size as it appeared in the mag originally.
Damn, I'm guess gonna have to start thinking about doing that threatened book version of my greatest hits.
