Happy Summer: Here's a List of Summer Albums For You

Okay all, this is not a real post this time, but a list. More specifically a list of 65 for so albums that make me think of spring/summertime in honor of the official launch of summer yesterday! I posted this on my Facebook back in March and have added and critiqued it slightly, as more albums came to mind. You will notice a wide variety of current new albums making there way into my summertime subconscious, and albums that have been riding around in my mind for years this time of the year, as the weather warms up! Enjoy, and look for a new real post from me next week, as I prepare a memoir/testimony about Mark Heard, a man whose "Satellite Sky" album (which is on this list) forever altered my Faith in high school.
