A Boomers Guide to Music
I realized one night while
listening, that most adults do not have a clue as to what to buy -
therefore, they quit buying. Radio was not geared to adults for new
music, retail nor the labels did not market to adults. So here sits the
biggest demographic with the most money and nobody seems to care that
they are not active purchasers of music. Welcome to the bopper,
hopefully I can turn you on to some new music that you would not have
On this site, I talk about my
music, my equipment and myself. If you are a boomer and seeking music, I
hope that you find some suggestions here that turn you on as a music
listener. I have also listed music equipment reviews of equipment that I
have owned as well as currently own.
Welcome to the bopper.net - it
is all about the music.

This Month's Feature Albums (Click on
the Cover to go to ITunes to listen).
||Roseanne Cash -
The River and the Thread - Folk/Country
This might be the best album of the
year. Great songs, superb production, this is one of those
albums that just totally seduces you. It is the total sound from
every instrument to Roseanne's voice - a masterpiece. Forget
about your distaste for Country, this is not Country, this is
Absolutely, not to be missed.
||Ray LaMontagne -
Supernova - Rock
is unlike anything that Ray has done before. Album feels like it was cut
in the 70's during the height of rock and roll. Great production, some
great songs and some good songs, however not a bad song on the album. If
you do not know LaMontagne, this is a great place to start.
Keb Mo -
BluesAmericana - Blues
of my favorite storytellers has released a new album filled with songs
that all tell a story. Blues at its best. Mo is one of those artists
that is all about music for an older generation. New accessible blues
music that is a total treat.
The Holmes Brothers - Brotherhood -
The Holmes Brothers
are a vibrant mix of gospel and the blues. On their latest, they are
swinging a little more than usual. They are unlike anything else
currently recording and that is a good thing. Love the vocals,
especially the harmonies on the choruses. This is American music, the
roots, the current, fun, fun.
||Toni Braxton and
Babyface - Love, Marriage and Divorce - Soul
Is it the 80's? Super slick soul from
Babyface featuring Toni Braxton. Some songs are duets, some are solos,
however each one is a testament to Babyface's great soul writing and
production. Music to make love to, break up to, make up to - the bases
are covered. I forgot how much how liked sweet super soul music.
||Craig Handy and the 2nd
Line Smith - Jazz
a New Orleans funk feel. If you can keep from tapping your toe when this
is playing, then you must be dead. Great musicians, from the horns to
the organ, however it is the bass line and the drums that give it the
New Orleans feel. You can taste the gumbo this music is so real. Great
