Before Portland, Maine, was a postcard come to life, it was a pretty decent music city. Maybe it still is. Good bands have released important work here. Literally thousands of local records have graced the shelves of Bull Moose over the years. And Enterprise Records. Even Woolworths.
Portland’s Best Albums is an archive of works reviewed and cataloged by me, Sam Pfeifle, long-time music writer for the Portland Phoenix, Portland’s alternative-weekly newspaper. Some of these go back 10 or 15 years. Sometimes, I even like a new album enough to write something about it.
(Hold tight for lots more. It takes a while to post all these reviews. I’ve got a day job and stuff.)
