This is going to be my last post on The Jukebox Rebel news blog!
I’ve decided to switch my news reporting to my newly created mainstream social media channels, so please follow The Jukebox Rebel on Twitter or like like The Jukebox Rebel on Facebook to keep in touch with all my developing music review news. Check me, moving with the times ::rollseyes::
Meanwhile, I’ll continue to blog about the best of the new additions to my collection over on the last great record blog, so you haven’t quite heard the last of me on Word Press!
Since my last news post in November I’ve been hard at it on my main website, developing the design to present my reviews in a more enjoyable and user-friendly way. Album charts from 1939 to 1955 are now fully illustrated with a link to album-specific pages where you’ll find the review, track-by-track ratings and my jukebox picks.
Beyond that, you can also click through to artist biography and discography profiles.
All of this is helped along via embeds from Wikipedia, YouTube and Spotify.
As previously promised, playlists will be a standard feature on almost all of my charts but due to the relatively low number of albums from pre-1956, there’s not much point within these early years charts.
