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 found otherwise.

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).

Product Details Avicii - "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.

Product Details 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.

Product Details Gov't Mule - "Shout" - Blues Rock

Warren Hayes 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.

The Royal Southern Brotherhood Royal Southern Brotherhood - "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.
