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).
"All That for This" - Rock
Crystal's new album does not
disappoint. She is my favorite artist to come from American Idol
and I feel that this album has better songs suited to Crystal
than the her first. The album is a mixture of folk, pop and rock
- all Crystal all the time. Highly recommended.
||Emmy Rossum -
"Sentimental Journey" - Jazz Vocals
If you like Norah Jones or Diana Krall then
I believe you will like Emmy. She is doing covers of songs that you know
well, such as "All I Dream of You" and her voice will stay with you
after you turn off the stereo. She haunts the songs with a wispy
treatment that makes you want to listen over and over again.
Do you miss Sade? If
so, then not to worry, this group is as close as you can get. These are
men, although on some songs it is hard to tell as the lead vocalist has
a very high voice. The production is electronic like Sade and the album
does not have a bad song on it. Fun, fun, fun -Sade who?
Brian McKnight -
"More than Words" - R&B/Soul
McKnight is our modern soul singer. Another
album of slow seductive soul. McKnight's voice is smooth as silk and
most of the songs are just as smooth. The album has just enough up tempo
songs to keep the whole thing interesting. Need a little soul tonight,
Brian is ready to fill your wish.
||Kim Richey -
"Thorn in My Heart" - Singer/Songwriter
First let me make clear that I do not feel
Kim Richey is country as a lot do. She has been around since the 80's
and has always been a fave of mine. Kim writes good songs and has a very
pleasant voice. This album does not contain a killer hit, however the
entire album is good, not a bad song to be found - not a bad
||John Moulder Quintet -
"The Eleventh Hour - Live at the Green Mill" - jazz
The only thing I like better than a good
jazz album is a good live jazz album. Recorded in Chicago's own Green
Mill, this album just cooks. Moulder has surrounded himself with a
stellar cast and if you like bop jazz, you will love this. And did I
mention, it's live.
