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).
"True" - Pop/EDM
This might be the best album of the
year. From the hit single "Wake Me Up", this album does not
quit. Hit song after hit song, this guy is for real. This is
Electronic Dance Music at its best. Each song is a little
different, however you want to get up and groove to every one.
Absolutely, not to be missed.
||Sheryl Crow -
"Feels Like Home" - Rock/Country
Yes, Sheryl has gone a little country,
however I think this is her best album in years. The country production
is not heavy handed and the songs are all winners. If you like Sheryl
Crow, you will like this album. For fans and for new fans, a feel good
album of songs that tell a story.
Various Artists -
"Way Way Back" - Pop/Soundtrack
In my opinion, this is one of the best feel
good soundtracks in a long time. Artists that you have never heard from
with artists that you have. This album does not feel like a soundtrack,
the songs all have the same catchy pop feel and you just bounce from one
track to the next. Been playing this over and over and it still sounds
fresh. The person that put this together is genius.
Amos Lee -
"Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song" - Pop
Another great album from Mr. Lee. More songs
written and performed by one of the better new artists on the scene
today. Great production, not too heavy handed, pop songs with pop
production that all mate well with Lee's vocals. Did I say fun, and the
sonics are first rate.
||Gov't Mule -
- Blues Rock
and Gov't Mule prove once again that they are today's answer to the
Allman Brothers. Great writing, great performance anchored by Hayes
superb guitar playing. Album features two versions of each song, the
first by Gov't Mule and the second by the Mule and a quest artist. You
can pick which version you like the best. If you like Blues Rock, this
is a band for you.
"Songs from the Road, Live in Germany" - Blues Rock
Oh my, Devon Allman and Cyril Neville along
with a super group of blues rockers. Think combination of Allmans and
Nevilles and you are not far off. This live album rocks - I dare you to
take it off the turntable. This and the above Gov't Mule are for our
more edgier fans. Wanna rock and roll, then play it loud.
