Musicends, Valentine’s 2017

Early: Joy of Cooking/Joy vinyl for the first time in years.

Late: New album by the Feelies.

Joy of Cooking changed my life at the start of the ’70s. (Wow, that debut album was a lot stronger than I remembered.) And they don’t seem stuck in the amber of the past at all — they don’t sound contemporary, they simply raise a lot of male and female stories, issues and emotions that have barely budged from where they left off.

Feelies — very very pleasant, very very smart, couple twists in a grand twisty. But mission accomplished long ago.
