Christmas CD Countdown 2023! December 18th


A couple years ago, or maybe just last year, I can't remember, I started packing away CD"s I was buying between October and November to have myself a CD a day Christmas countdown. It's like getting a gift every day leading up to the holiday. It helps tied over the excitement of the coming day, and well, it's just fun.

This year's focus was live albums, and 80's discography clean up. The latter meaning that it wasn't necessarily an album I had on my want list for a specific song, but rather to have an entire decade collection of a specific artist.

It's blamed for ruining live albums for everyone.

When Bruce Springsteen released his definitive live box set known as Live: 1975 - 85, the music industry turned upside down. It's rumored that this contributed greatly to why many artists didn't release live albums in the 80's. They simply couldn't compete with the massive tome Springsteen unleashed. Of course, the other side to that matter was that MTV ushered in an era where fans wanted to see the artists, not just just hear them. Despite not releasing albums, many did go on to release VHS tapes of full concerts.
