You know the hits of Hall & Oates. Now get to know less well-known albums such as “Beauty on a Back Street,” “Bigger Than Both of Us,” and “Along the Red Ledge.”
In concert, Chrissie Hynde and company don’t disappoint; at a recent concert, their set sampled from the in-your-face punk of the first album through the wiser-but-edgy latest release “Alone.” The Pretenders are as fearless as ever.
Being a punk icon ain’t easy when you’re hitting middle age. But you can count on Lou Reed to explore aging and anarchy with grace.
