The Vinyl Review: Hall & Oates

Daryl Hall and John Oates, perhaps better known simply as Hall & Oates, are making a debut in this review, but they are one of the more prolific duos in rock music. They have played together since the 1970s. 

In fact, you might call them dynamic. 

I have a 45 with “You Make My Dreams” on it. It’s has been a jukebox classic for decades. Most readers have probably heard of it. 

Those inclined to dancing might feel the need to do so when this one is under the needle. For the rest of us, it’s a solid song to throw on the player the next time you are touring your 45s. 

I don’t know a lot of music by Hall & Oates, but this small sample has me interested in a full album. 

(Foreshadowing: I recently acquired some Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard — look for them here in coming weeks.)
