Phil’s Faves: Albums, August 18, 2019

Over time, my listening habits have changed and at the moment I usually listen to albums completely through. I haven’t done that in years, but it’s actually very rewarding—particularly when the album is good. Every album that will be on this list will fit that category.

Songs from the albums on this list forms the basis of my countdown list for the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show,” (Mondays, 8P-10P ET) on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Songs” lists!

Here’s a link:

https://whfr.fm/streamer/

It’s another peak into my listening habits—which is a goal of mine. If you want to know where I’m heading or what I think about some new music, you will find it here.

I honestly don’t expect there to be much volatility on this list because these albums are what I have been basing many of the sets on my show.

Once again, there will be no boundaries. I will go wherever my musical muse takes me.

The Philbys Are Calling! Do You Hear It?

The Philby Award

My Philby logo has been sitting as a draft on my website since July 31.  I’ve been thinking about doing that post since April. Last year I finally got around to posting it in October. The year before, I posted it in September.

So this will be my earliest Philby post for year end music!

I like that!

It means that I might be able to get a couple of reminders out for the 2019 awards.

There’s a little more than four months before the year ends.  I work on the Philby lists year round now, so I kind of have an idea of what I might have on them.

Right now, I am considering about six hundred albums.

That seems like a fairly large number, but really it’s not, because I am considering releases from 2016 through 2019.

As large as my working list is, I know I have room for more.

I can never have enough!

Therefore, I am accepting entries for Philby consideration!

So, if you’ve made some music dating back as far as 2016, I will accept that music for consideration. When it comes to independent self-released projects, an artist may not know how to get their product marketed or recognized. It may take a couple of years to figure that part of it out.

If you have something older than 2016, send that, too, but identify the release date. I’m always looking for GREAT music.

For the Philbys, I’m looking for full albums.

However, if you only have a single, I’ll accept that, too. Don’t forget that I also have a Philby Hot Songs list, and more artists are releasing singles these days.

But please don’t send me an incomplete album if you have one.

So, please don’t edit for me.

I hate that and I might not even check out the item. I don’t know why anyone would only send selected songs instead of their whole work of art for consideration.

Please don’t send me links to listen to music. That’s not how I listen to music and I probably won’t listen to it if you send me a link to stream it. Either send me the album to download or request my mailing address for a physical copy.

I usually say that if your item came out later than May, it may not end up on this year’s list. But I feel more on top of things than normal this year, and there’s a good two months or so that I have to check out your album.

I will accept any genre of music. I like a variety of styles, even on the same album!

So, please e-mail your mp3, and please make sure it is an mp3 only, to phil@philmaq.com.

If you want a physical address or have other questions, please e-mail me at the same address. Because selections will be considered for more than a single year, there isn’t an expiration date at the present.

If you want someone who will actually listen to your music, I am that person.

If you want some recognition for working hard and baring your soul, that might be me, too. I can’t make any promises, but I will listen to your music.

If you are reading this and are not a musician but know someone who is, please forward this to them.

Good luck to all who participate!

Phil’s Faves: Songs, August 18, 2019

This is a weekly Top Ten list of what I consider to be the best songs that I listened to the previous week. Most songs will be current, but there are no boundaries. I’ve already stated on this web site that I am obsessed with music. I am constantly hunting it down whether it’s online, on CD, from my personal collection, from a library (Yes, I think the library is a great source of music–especially for music that you aren’t sure about.), TV, or radio. Since most of these sources mostly emphasize new music, the odds are pretty good that most of the songs on this list will be new. But in my search, I don’t use any boundaries for the other sources. I am just looking for good music that I haven’t heard, or happened to forget about. Everyone, including myself, has forgotten way more great music than they can ever remember-even if they are also music fanatics.

Also, there will be no rules concerning songs on this list. A song can show up or drop off a number of times. This will be the most volatile of my lists. It all depends on how much music I am exposed to during the week and what I find interesting. On really obscure stuff, I will try to include the source, if I know it.

Most of the songs heard on this list have been played on my radio show, “Prime Time Theme Attic,” heard Mondays, 8PM-10PM ET!

This list forms the basis of my countdown list on the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show” on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Albums” lists!

It’s A Woodstock Bugapaloozin’ Dance Party on Prime Time Theme Attic, Monday Night, 8PM-10PM EDT!!!

There’s still plenty of summer left, but there’s also plenty of themes that I need to cover.

Woodstock turns 50 this week!

I’m not really crazy about some of the live recordings, but you can’t overlook the roster of performers and the general vibes from the event!

Also, I’ve noticed that it’s pretty much a race these days to get into the house before the bugs do when I go through a door. That’s as good a sign as any that’s it’s time for my annual “Bugapalooza” offering!

And, finally, it’s always time to have a dance party–even “hippie dancing!”

Throw in a “Top 9 at 9:09,” and you have this week’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq, Monday night from 8PM-10PM EDT!!!

Songs by artists will include Kenny Parker BandDAVY KNOWLESRFACar CityJoanie Leeds & The NightlightsThe Music Lady (Beverly Meyer Music) (Her album cover for “Movin’ and Groovin'” is in the banner!), George Hertier, MJ Bishop, Lindsay LouCraig Moreau MusicSugar SnowSharon Goldman (Her cover for her brand new album “Every Trip Around the Sun” is in the banner!), Southern Culture on the SkidsJc & The DisciplesThe Rebel Set, Kim Robertson, Santana (Carlos Santana), Deep PurpleJefferson AirplaneJohn SebastianThe Simon Kennedy Band, and more!!!
