https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZjAantupsA Ah, Cameo! I came across this great funk band back in high school on a budget compilation called Funk- 70s, which was ironically wrong about the decade most of the hits came from. Anyway, from my youtube sampling of the band, this is their big hit for a reason, and I can live with that.

Well, after over a week of trying to buy tickets, I give up. I'd heard horror stories about Ticketmaster in the past, but had never had any problems. 'Till now. I was on the site the minute they went on sale. First hour, non-stop selecting, in cart, 'oops! It's not you, something went wrong with... Continue Reading →
Just got email from Lexer Music: "Hello, Next Friday, 24th August marks the official release day of the Soft Cell Club Remixes 12" Picture Disc EP.

Set on the moon, this vinyl mimicing mercury is a perfect fit! Absolutely amazing. The only thing more appropriate would be a gold version...only sold at the pop-up stores and now on the second-hand market at exorbatant prices.

Wonderful album! Though you may only be familiar with the song "Puttin' On The Ritz" as 80's nostalgia or novelty, I think it's fantastic. The entire album, actually, is filled with the unique blend of Taco's operatic voice over mostly older covers with synth treatments, to great effect. Yes, I concede it is a little...

Do you like beat poetry? If you are into the Burroughs' work, just imagine his raspy voice making songs from cuts of prose with mysterious, easter-influenced rock instrumental backing, curtosy of the band Material, and you have Seven Souls. An album not for casual play, but one for contemplation and active listening. Oh, and fear... Continue Reading →

Always an oldies station staple while driving in the car as a child! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxNvFVI2G38 Didn't find out 'till years later that the song came from the Hair musical. Just knew it as a groovy tune from the ever poppy California -soul band, The 5th Dimension. Having bought a few of their albums from the discount... Continue Reading →

Houses of The Holy is the last Zeppelin album I regularly enjoy listening to all the way through. There are plenty of gems throughout the second half of their career, but to my taste, the sound became bloated and a little too self-indulgent to completely enjoy. On this album, all aspects the band had developed... Continue Reading →
John Coltrane 1961/11/18 b- Paris, France, Olympia Theatre 1. Blue Train 2. I Want To Talk About You 3. My Favorite Things Jaw-droppingly amazing! If you are a Coltrane/jazz fan, this is a great performance. https://mega.nz/#F!5GY0mCoA!Wc_pqfvgOEuVrNsbFpE0GQ
The 'Godfather-of-Rap' lays down one of his hardest, funkiest albums and doesn't miss a beat when it comes to social commentary. With him, that's saying a lot! Each song is extremely well crafted not just to groove but to and lay bare hypocracies and injustices. All with his silky but powerful voice, the skill of... Continue Reading →

The pic is a little misleading- the vinyl is pure teal, and as beautiful as the music inscribed on it! Great concert from the final Bolan era.

This delightful 2 LP set came pressed on marbled orange vinyl and is even more breathtaking in person! Maybe one day there will be a complete official release on vinyl this cool. Seriously, the compliation didn't even have Scott McKenzie's "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)"! Good choices besides...
Good album. I don't really remember where I got this, and to be honest, when I was randomly selecting an album to review, I had forgotten I even had it! Glad it did come up though. It's a fun listen. Really solid country/blues/rock with great audience atmosphere. Think Johnny Cash's prison performances with a little... Continue Reading →
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffkom6CLA78 And another video I'm only a few days late to the party for haha! As with the Arctic Monkeys' latest album and video, this too is connected to the first as a disjointed storyline. Good, glammy song and action packed plot. Looking forward to the album dropping in August!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXuUAtAtMtM Expands on from the "Four Out of Five" video. Would be really cool if they made a clip for each song and had a complete video album. Really digging this new era for the band!
