Don Cohen Poop 2018



Hey PooPsters, After streaming northwards of 100 albums this year, here is my tasting menu, boiled down to a fine French reduction sauce. Notable this year is the number of artists, still vital, who have added to the backdrop of my life, some for over 50 years. Baez, McGuinn, and Lil’ Tommy Rush, among them. As I approach 70, that these folks are still around and prolific is life affirming. And to you, my fellow Poopsters, I’m grateful for your lists that invariably turn me on to morsels I missed last year.
