Elvis' last studio recordings were the Jungle Room Sessions in late 1976 (recorded inside Graceland). Incredibly underrated material and some of my favorite recordings are from that. The Jungle Room Sessions are especially good if you like his more melancholy ballads (the outtakes before take #1 of It's Easy for You are heartbreaking but revealing).
His cover of Unchained Melody is a major highlight from this period (look for the June 21, 1977 performance--it's on YouTube). And I always love his live performances.
If You Love Me (Let Me Know), He'll Have to Go, Let Me Be There, She Thinks I Still Care... These are all fantastic recordings.
"If there is no great glorious end to all this, if nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do." "Nothing in the world is the way it ought to be. It's harsh and cruel. But that's why there's us. Champions."
"Permanent Vacation" by Aerosmith. While this may have been their big comeback album, that started taking them in a VERY mainstream direction, there's still plenty of good stuff on it. Joe Perry does great work as usual.
What do you think this is, a signature? It's a way of life!

The last album I listened to is Experiment Songs by Dorothy Collins, an educational album (probably from the early 1960s) intended for kids. My favourite songs on the album include "We Know the Air is There", "Rocks and Gems and Minerals", "Why is it Raining Raindrops?", "The Earth Goes Around the Sun", and "Where Does the Sun Rise?".
After this, I listened to most of the soundtrack from the 1991 video game Sonic the Hedgehog. I then listened to two tracks credited to the Men About Town Trio, these were very short records (under 90 seconds) released in the early 1930s and usually given away for free or offered for very cheap sale. I also listened to the theme song from the 1970s episodes of "The Price is Right".
