V.A. - The Very Best Of Rock'n'Roll (2001)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

"Rock 'N Roll" is a musical genre whose 'golden age' is usually recognized as the decades of the 1950's and 1960's. This musical form had its beginnings in the blues tunes, gospel music, and jazz-influenced vocal music that became popular among African-American audiences after World War II. A new kind of blues, it featured electrically amplified guitars, harmonicas, and drummers that emphasized afterbeats. At the same time, black gospel music grew in popularity. These forms of black popular music were given the label rhythm and blues (R and B) and were played on big-city radio stations. Radio spread this music's appeal from black communities to towns throughout all of the United States. By the mid-1950's such performers as Little Richard, Joe Turner, and Chuck Berry were becoming popular with white audiences. Radio disc jockeys began calling their music rock 'n roll... x, y, z.

DIANA ROSS - The Definitive Collection (2006)

At a mere 20 songs, a Diana Ross collection claiming to be 'definitive,' is immediately suspect. Is it possible to define one of pop music's most iconic divas in the space of a single CD? Motown's DEFINITIVE COLLECTION tackles the problem first by excluding Ross's work with the Supremes and focusing only on her solo endeavors. The album also opts for singles over choice album cuts, and while the selection might not pass muster with diehard Ross fans, it provides a solid introduction to the singer's peak moments. Naturally, the #1's are here: "Touch Me in the Morning," "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)," and her duet with Lionel Richie on "Endless Love," among others. Ross's pop-funk hits are faithfully represented ("Upside Down;" "Love Hangover"), as is her essential duet with Marvin Gaye on "My Mistake (Was to Love You)." In short, while the album may be too brief, every song here is a glittering gem, underscoring the Motown diva's rightful place in pop music history. 1, 2.

SONG TITLE: 01. I'm Coming Out 02. Love Hangover 03. Missing You 04. Mirror, Mirror 05. Touch Me In The Morning
06. Upside Down 07. Muscles 08. Why Do Fools Fall In Love 09. Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand) 10. Good Morning Heartache 11. Last Time I Saw Him 12. My Mistake (Was To Love You) 13. It's My Turn 14. Ain't No Mountain High Enough 15. The Boss 16. Swept Away 17. Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To) 18. Endless Love 19. What A Difference A Day Makes 20. Remember Me

JAMES TAYLOR
- Covers (2008)


01. It's Growing
02. (I'm A) Road Runner
03. Wichita Lineman
04. Why Baby Why
05. Some Days You Gotta Dance
06. Seminole Wind
07. Suzanne
08. Hound Dog
09. Sadie
10. On Broadway
11. Summertime Blues
12. Not Fade Away

"Covers" is the CD that James Taylor fans have been anticipating for years. Recorded live with his full band in a barn in Massachusetts that was transformed into a studio, the album is a treasury of songs he has performed live over the years, but never recorded. It is an American songbook of tunes made famous by artists as varied Buddy Holly, The Dixie Chicks, The Temptations, Leonard Cohen, George Jones and Eddie Cochran, but embraced and interpreted by James Taylor in a way that makes each one his own. It is a significant work by one of the greatest artists of his generation, which pays tribute to classic American songs from Broadway to Nashville, Detroit to Memphis and across all boundaries. "Covers" is in itself a classic James Taylor recording.

KATHLEEN EDWARDS
- Asking For Flowers (2008)

01. Buffalo
02. The Cheapest Key
03. Asking For Flowers
04. Alicia Ross
05. I Make The Dough, You Get The Glory
06. Oil Man's War
07. Sure As Shit
08. Run
09. Oh Canada
10. Scared At Night
11. Goodnight, California

After a three-year hiatus to catch up on life in her native Ontario, Kathleen Edwards has done nothing to separate herself from the small pool of North America’s fast-rising songwriters, in which she is a deeply immersed member. Her third album continues her clear-minded, open-hearted lyricism, though with a ripeness that comes from years on the road and years more to reflect. Edwards remains in a tug-of-war with matters of the heart, and she’s not afraid slyly to nudge the opposite side. "I’m a Ford Tempo (and) you’re my Maserati," she sings in "I Make the Dough, You Get the Glory." It's a get-lost love song similar in tone to "The Cheapest Key," which finds the storyteller alphabetizing her romantic tribulations. Even the gorgeous melody of the title song is offset by the concession that a simple bouquet is not too much to ask in return. As the record’s co-producer, Edwards has assembled a cracker-jack studio band (led by Heartbreakers’ keyboardist Benmont Tench and pedal steel virtuoso Greg Leisz), and she turns it loose on "Oh Canada," a nod to her home nation, and "Oil Man’s War," which speculates that a permanent trip to that country may be a viable alternative to life south of the border. - amazon.com

ROBBIE ROBERTSON - Contact From The Underworld Of Redboy (1998)

The erstwhile leader of the Band has never looked back since he split from that legendary ensemble. Each of his solo efforts has explored further and further into new musical areas. "Contact From The Unerworld Of Redboy" is no exception. Here Robertson pays homage to his Native American heritage while venturing into the decidedly more modern realm of electronica. The thick textures, both electronic and organic, serve to underscore the message inherent in Robertson's lyrics. Essentially, "Contact..." examines both the heritage of the Native Americans and the way in which it has been destroyed. The studio wizardry of Howie B is appropriately understated, adding a contemporary sheen to Robertson's somewhat Daniel Lanois-esque tunes without upstaging them. *

Rolling Stone (3/19/98, pp.64-66) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...a haunting, richly textured blend of ancient spirituality, rattle-the-walls guitar and hypnotic beats....a national chronicle of glory and shame, a personal story ringing with conviction."

FREDDIE KING
- Woman Across The River (1973)

02. I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man

06. Just A Little Bit
07. Look On Yonder Wall
08. Help Me Through The Day
09. I'm Ready
10. Trouble In Mind
11. You Don't Have To Go

King's last Shelter album was his most elaborately produced, with occasional string arrangements and female backups vocals, although these didn't really detract from the net result. Boasting perhaps heavier rock elements than his other Shelter efforts, it was characteristically divided between blues standards (by the likes of Willie Dixon and Elmore James), Leon Russell tunes, and more RB/soul-inclined material by the likes of Ray Charles and Percy Mayfield. It's been reissued, along with his other Shelter albums, on the King of the Blues anthology. - All Music Guide

MUDDY WATERS - The Complete Muddy Waters 1947-1967 (1992)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

No, this mammoth nine-disc compilation -- isn't actually complete, since alternate takes have since turned up of a couple of items. Further, the sound quality is decidedly spotty, and Charly's legal right to put Chess material on the market at all has long been in question. But this is the only place CD enthusiasts are currently going to find more than a few indispensable 1950s sides that MCA hasn't gotten around to releasing quite yet. And the final disc holds some enlightening alternate takes (including a whopping eight runthroughs of "Woman Wanted" and nine versions of "Read Way Back") that may never see domestic light of day. For aficionados only, make no mistake! ~ All Music Guide Links protected with LinkSave.in

05. Henry Russell's Last Words
06. I Am A Wanderer
07. Mary
08. Requiem
09. The Lower Road
10. Jericho Road

It's 50 years since Joan Baez launched her career in a Boston folk club, and she is still a force to be reckoned with - both because of her political stance and her ability to reinterpret new songs by other artists. The process continues on her first studio album in five years, produced by Steve Earle - who makes use of a classy, understated acoustic band, featuring his own guitar and vocal work. But what makes this set successful is the choice of songs. As on earlier Baez albums, there's material by Earle (two new compositions, and a sparse, a cappella treatment of his gutsy Jericho Road) and then there are songs by the Texan Eliza Gilkyson, Elvis Costello and T-Bone Burnett, and the British songwriter Thea Gilmore. Best of all is the title track, a pained and thoughtful reflection on war and fate, as seen by a disillusioned soldier. The original Tom Waits recording was powerful, gruff and rambling, but here it is given the Baez solo treatment, with her own guitar backing, and is transformed into a poignant, personal and timeless anti-war classic that fits effortlessly into her repertoire.

JOE LOUIS WALKER
- Witness To The Blues (2008)

04. Hustlin'
05. Witness
06. Rollin' & Tumblin'
07. Highview
08. I Got What You Need
09. Keep on Believin'
10. 100% More Man
11. Sugar Mama

Joe Louis Walker is a walking encyclopedia of blues history, and blues vocal and guitar styles. In fact, one of the very few who can match his eclectic tastes in music is Duke Robillard, the veteran guitarist who founded Roomful of Blues when he was a teenager, and who has made a dozen albums for Stony Plain. Holger Petersen, who heads the Canadian-based roots label, was delighted by the choice of Robillard as producer for "Witness to the Blues." And for Robillard, the sessions were a joy. "There's a lot of diversity on this CD, yet it hangs together really well." The material - more than half the 11 tracks were written by Walker - includes two traditional blues pieces (Sugar Mama and Rollin' and Tumblin') which he completely transforms. A highlight of the CD is a killer duet with Shemekia Copeland on the Peggy Scott & Jo Jo Benson classic, Lover's Holiday. The back up players are all musicians with long experience with Robillard, including horn players Doug James and Scott Aruda, Bruce Katz on keys, Jon Ross on bass and Mark Teixeira on drums. Robillard himself adds guitar parts on five cuts. Both vocally and instrumentally, Joe Louis Walker is indeed a "witness to the blues," and the creative, sometimes startling approach to America's most significant music holds a bright lantern for others to follow. 1, 2.

DISC 2: 01. Shine On You Crazy Diamond 02. Astronomy Domine 03. Fat Old Sun 04. High Hopes 05. Echoes 06. Wish You Were Here 07. A Great Day For Freedom 08. Comfortably Numb

This live album is excitedly billed as 'the first solo live album from Pink Floyd's singer / guitarist'. A sketchy claim, this, given the availability of his outstanding Royal Albert Hall residency in 2006, the closest we can expect to get to a fully fledged Pink Floyd reunion. But splitting hairs aside, this is a unique event in itself, a concert given in a Polish shipyard to mark the anniversary of the August '80 treaty. Given, too, in the true meaning of the word - as you would expect with the modest Gilmour, there are no histrionics here, no heart on sleeve enunciations - just a rock legend and his music, with nothing more needed to be said. This 2CD set is the first live album from Pink Floyd's singer/guitarist, and captures the magic of his concert held in front of 50,000 people in the Gdansk shipyards, the final performance of his critically acclaimed 2006 On an Island tour. It also features the first ever recording of selected Pink Floyd classics performed with an orchestra, the 40-strong string section of the Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zbigniew Prisner. Sidemen in the band include Richard Wright (!), Phil Manzanera, Guy Pratt, Jon Carin, Steve Di Stanislao, and Dick Parry.

Produced by Bo and Pieta Brown, Stranger Blues features appearances by a host of friends including Greg Brown, Joe Price, Pieta Brown, Benson Ramsey and Ricky Peterson. Michael Ross of Puremusic.com says of "Stranger Blues" that "Bo reveals that he can do letter-perfect readings of the classics [and] demonstrates that the genre's hypnotic grooves, laid-back feel, and stripped-down soul are the building blocks of his deeply personal and profoundly moving sound . . .."

ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA - Flashback (2000)

Flashback is a box set compilation by Electric Light Orchestra. In 2000, Jeff Lynne found a new impetus to work on the music of his old band and returned to the recording studio to work on an ELO project for the first time in some fifteen years just prior to the comeback Zoom in 2001 resulting in a digitally remastered compilation released in late 2000. Although, unlike its predecessors, this project was personally approved and endorsed by band leader Jeff Lynne. The set includes songs featured from all eleven studio albums up to that point, including an edit of "Great Balls of Fire" from their live album The Night the Light Went on (in Long Beach), plus some new recordings amongst the bands extensive back catalogue, most notably a reworking of Lynne's only UK number one hit "Xanadu".

RAY MANZAREK & ROY ROGERS
- Ballads Before The Rain (2008)


01. Gnossienne No.1
02. B.E. In Memorium
03. El Amor Brujo
04. Remembering You
05. The Crystal Ship
06. Love Is A Dangerous Place
07. Ruby Red Nails
08. Riders On The Storm
09. American Pastoral

What do you get when you put former Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek up alongside guitar wizard Roy Rogers (not the cowboy star)? You get "Ballads Before The Rain", an evocative, reflective duo release that features Manzarek's piano interacting simply and effectively with Rogers' guitar. The bill of fare is all-instrumental, and includes some Manzarek originals, a Satie piece, and yes, a couple of reinterpreted Doors classics, "Riders on the Storm" and "The Crystal Ship." Even some 40 years after the Doors, Manzarek's angular, visceral style is still immediately identifiable, but when it crosses paths with Rogers's unearthly slide work and gutsy twang it ventures into new territory, a crossroads where jazz, New Age, and classical meet. This historic meeting is now waxed and ready for their legions of collective fans to enjoy. A session fit for a king indeed!

GRAHAM NASH
- Wild Tales (1973)


01. Wild Tales
02. Hey You (Looking At The Moon)
03. Prison Song
04. You'll Never Be The Same
05. And So It Goes
06. Grave Concern
07. Oh! Camil (The Winter Soldier)
08. I Miss You
09. On The Line
10. Another Sleep Song

Graham Nash's second solo effort has been overshadowed by his harmonic heroics as a senior partner in the various Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young configurations. After being lured from the Hollies - where his latter contributions were criminally unappreciated - it was Nash who had come up with most of the CSN(Y) hit singles, including "Marrakesh Express," "Our House," and "Teach Your Children." His 1971 debut, Songs for Beginners, was likewise filled with inspired moments such as "I Used to Be a King," "Chicago/We Can Change the World," and "Sleep Song." Topping those efforts would have been superhuman. Such is the way that Wild Tales has been eclipsed and overlooked by enthusiasts of his previous endeavors. Nash gathered a core aggregate of musicians, many of whom were loosely connected to the CSNY family. These include: Johnny Barbata (drums), Tim Drummond (bass), David Lindley (guitar), and Ben Keith (pedal steel guitar/dobro), and, of course David Crosby (vocals). Also making guest shots were Dave Mason (12-string guitar), Joe Yankee (aka Neil Young) (acoustic piano), and Joni Mitchell (vocals). Together, they animate Nash's slice-of-life compositions. Musically, Nash retains much of the whimsy that drew folks to his earlier songs. Likewise, the subject matter ranges from political ("Oh Camil" and "Prison Song") to the emotionally naked "Another Sleep Song" and "I Miss You." Nash would bring several of these tunes back to the CSNY fold for their 1974 tour - including the up-tempo rocking title track, as well as the folkie "Prison Song." It would be another seven years after Wild Tales before Nash would issue his next solo album, Earth & Sky - which fared as poorly at its predecessor. ~ All Music Guide

SCARS - Scars (2002)

01. When The Sun Goes Down
02. Rectify
03. Wasn't Born In Chicago
04. Stand Up
05. Just Can't Let You Go
06. My Baby (She's So Good To Me)
07. World Of Confusion
08. Ball And Chain
09. World Keep Turnin' Round
10. Who Knows (What Tomorrow May Bring)?

Having spent most of the 1990s indulging in blues-fests with the likes of Albert and BB King, Gary Moore needed revitalising with some new blood. Hence Scars, a new album from a new band of the same name. Recruiting former Skunk Anansie bassist Cass Lewis and former Primal Scream drummer Darrin Mooney, he's provided himself with a vibrant rhythm section, talented enough to back his most subtle and explosive flights of fretboard fancy. This is not to say he's left the blues behind. "Ball and Chain" and the opening "When the Sun Goes Down" are both deep grinds in the tradition of Howlin' Wolf. But he ups the tempo with "Rectify" and "World Keeps Turnin' Round", delivering Mountain-style blues-metal. Elsewhere, he moves further afield, with the drum & bass intro of "Wasn't Born in Chicago" and the techno SFX of "Stand Up". There's also something for those who prefer Moore's gentler moments. "Just Can't Let You Go" is a sweet ballad--Moore's voice soft and quivering with emotion--that rises to two separate crescendos then ends with a trademark solo echoing the classic "Parisienne Walkways". This is a fine return to form. - amazon.com

BRYAN LEE - Timepieces:
Bryan Lee's Greatest Hits (2003)


01. Memphis Bound
02. Waiting On Ice
03. Louisiana Woman

05. You Better Believe It

11. Sinking Fast
12. Let Me Down Easy
13. I'll Play the Blues For You

Born in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, Lee completely lost his eyesight by the age of eight. His avid interest in early rock and blues was fostered through the 1950s by late night listening sessions via the Nashville-based radio station WLAC AM, where he first encountered the sounds of Elmore James, Albert King and Albert Collins. By his late teens, Lee was playing rhythm guitar in a regional band called The Glaciers that covered Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry material. Through the 1960s, Lee's interest turned to Chicago blues and he soon found himself immersed on that scene, opening for some of his boyhood heroes. In January of 1982, Lee moved to New Orleans, eventually landing a steady gig at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street becoming a favorite of tourists in the city's French Quarter. For the next 14 years, Lee and his Jump Street Five played five nights a week at that popular bar, developing a huge following and a solid reputation. Today Lee continues to perform in New Orleans. He also tours several times a year in the Midwest, Eastern Seaboard, Rocky Mountain States and recently Europe. - wiki

JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE
- Radio One (1989)


SONG TITLE: 01. Stone Free 02. Radio One Theme 03. Day Tripper 04. Killing Floor 05. Love or Confusion 06. Drivin' South 07. Catfish Blues 08. Wait Until Tomorrow 09. Hear My Train a Comin' 10. Hound Dog 11. Fire 12. Hoochie Coochie Man 13. Purple Haze 14. Spanish Castle Magic 15. Hey Joe 16. Foxy Lady 17. Burning Of The Midnight Lamp

Seventeen songs from 1967 BBC broadcasts, when the Jimi Hendrix Experience had yet to burn out from the wheel of constant touring, management hassles, and internal strife. They're in good, enthusiastic form as they run through early gems like "Hey Joe," "Foxy Lady," "Fire," and "Stone Free," the lack of studio polish giving these versions a loose feel. The Experience studio albums are still considerably superior to this set, but it's certainly worth acquiring by any serious Hendrix fan, not least because it has several covers that didn't make it on to the three proper Experience LPs. Several of these ("Hoochie Koochie Man," "Killing Floor," "Catfish Blues") reveal his sometimes overlooked affinity for Chicago-style electric blues; there are also a couple of surprises ("Hound Dog" and "Day Tripper"). With good sound, it's a solid addition to the Hendrix library, demonstrating his versatility in various rock, soul, and blues styles. ~ All Music Guide

ELTON JOHN WITH JOHN LENNON
- Madison Square Garden 1974 (1999)


A fabulous night in rock history - John Lennon made a guest appearance during the show, his first stage performance in years. When Lennon is murdered in December of 1980, this becomes his last ever concert appearance. Lennon is reported as being terrified before going on and the thunderous reception almost brought him and Elton John to tears. Elton and John had made an agreement, after they had appeared on each other's singles earlier in 1974, that if Lennon's single Whatever Gets You Through The Night made #1, then Lennon would appear on stage with Elton. John Lennon appeared on Elton's cover of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.

Elton John:
"We did "I Saw Her Standing There" which was great and I was so glad we did that. Originally I said, 'Let's do two numbers, but you'll have to do another. Why not do Imagine?' He said, 'Oh no, boring. I've done it before. Let's do a rock and roll song.' So I thought of "I Saw Her Standing There" which was the first track on the first Beatles album. And he never sang it. It was McCartney who sang it. John was so knocked out because he'd never actually sung the lead before."

"For us it was very emotional and one rock paper crucified us. But it was just an emotional night and nobody could believe it. I knew John would be petrified about doing it, but he really enjoyed it. I was more scared than he was, hoping things would go right for him. But the reaction when he walked on stage..."

"I wish he could have done more numbers because the reaction was so great. But he wanted to go upstairs and be sick. He told me he used to throw up before he went on stage. He came to Boston to see us before we did New York, and I've never seen anyone so nervous in my life. He was so worried for us." 1, 2.

In their 40 plus years of existence, Black Sabbath has had a bunch of vocalists. The two who are most well known and recorded the most material with Sabbath were Ozzy Osbourne and Ronnie James Dio.

GEORGE HARRISON & FRIENDS - The Concert For Bangladesh (1971)

This historical 1971 event set the template for every rock benefit concert that followed. A cast of all-star musicians, including Geroge Harrison, Ravi Shankar, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, and Bob Dylan, converged on New York City's Madison Square Garden to play and sing their hearts out, while all the proceeds from the concert went to aid Bengali refugees. Shankar's 17-minute-plus raga "Bangla Dhun" opens the set, as though evoking the voice of a part of the globe too-often overlooked by Westerners. Backed by Ali Akbar Kahn and Alla Rakha, Shankar's exquisitely nuanced performance is one of the show's highlights. Harrison, who organized the event, plays originals recorded with the Beatles ("While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "Something"), and songs from his then-recent solo debut, ALL THINGS MUST PASS ("My Sweet Lord;" "Awaiting on You All"). There are dynamic solo turns by Leon Russell and Billy Preston, before Dylan emerges to steal the show with renditions of his classics ("Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Blowin' in the Wind"). Originally released as a three-LP set, Concert For Bangladesh overflows with great music. At the time, it was an emblem for how popular music can raise consciousness about world issues and positively impact those situations. It remains such an emblem today. 1, 2 3.

JOHN LEE HOOKER
- John Lee Hooker Plays and Sings The Blues (1961)


01. The Journey
02. I Don't Want Your Money
03. Hey Baby
04. Mad Man Blues
05. Bluebird
06. Worried Life Blues )
07. Apologize
08. Lonely Boy Boogie
09. Please Don't Go
10. Dreamin' Blues
11. Hey Boogie
12. Just Me And My Telephone

Like other recordings from Hooker's early studio sessions, these tunes bristle with driving energy and ripple with the power of his shouted declarations. This is back porch music from the heart of the Delta, jolted to larger-than-life proportions by the electricity powering Hooker's guitar and by his own strong desire to quit sweeping factories and begin cleaning up on the charts. Although he often reworked themes by earlier bluesmen during this period, it was rare that Hooker outright covered another artist's material. So his riveting interpretations of Muddy Waters's "Please Don't Go" and Big Maceo Merriweather's "Worried Life Blues" peak this collection of solo turns that were recorded for Chess in 1951 and '52. - amazon.com

RICK SPRINGFIELD
- Venus In Overdrive (2008)


01. What's Victoria's Secret
02. I'll Miss That Somebody
03. Venus In Overdrive
04. One Passenger
05. Oblivious
06. Warning Shots
07. Time Stand Still
08. God Blinked (Swing It Sister)
09. Mr.PC
10. She
11. Nothing Is Ever Lost
12. Saint Sahara

Few would have guessed at any point over the last 20 years or so that '80s heartthrob Rick Springfield would release a major-label album in 2008 featuring new material that sounded completely contemporary. And yet "Venus In Overdrive" is populated, for the most part, by concise, hard-hitting, hooky tunes that would be completely at home on mainstream pop-rock radio circa '08. It's not so much that Springfield has reinvented himself - "What's Victoria's Secret?" in fact bears a distinct resemblance to Springfield's '80s smash "Jessie's Girl"- but, more that, the timeless power-pop values that were always a part of the Aussie rocker's sound stand up as well now as they ever did.

06. Memphis, Tennessee
07. Going Back to New Orleans

09. Soldier Boy
10. My Perfect Lover
11. In Your City

2008 album from the American singer/songwriter and his first release on Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records label. Mason Jennings is one of the best-kept secrets in Pop music. In his adopted home of Minneapolis his shows draw 3,000 fans. He was hand-picked by music supervisor Randall Poster to perform two Dylan songs in Todd Haynes’ acclaimed I’m Not There, both on the soundtrack album, and lip-synched by Christian Bale in the movie. Jennings retreated to a studio in the woods, where he set himself up with a laptop and two microphones. In the Ever continues Jennings’ spiritual journey, informed by his love of influences like Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash’s American recordings and Led Zeppelin, his favorite band of all time.

JOAN ARMATRADING
- Whatever's For Us (1972)


01. My Family
02. City Girl
03. Spend A Little Time
04. Whatever's For Us
05. Child Star
06. Visionary Mountains
07. It Could Have Been Better
08. Head Of The Table
09. Mister Remember Me
10. Give It A Try
11. Alice
12. Conversation
13. Mean Old Man
14. All The King's Gardens

Joan Armatrading's debut album is all but co-credited to Pam Nestor, who co-wrote 11 of the 14 songs and whose picture and bio appear on the album jacket. (She doesn't perform on the record, however.) Since Armatrading dispensed with the collaboration on later albums, a comparison is instructive. On these relatively short songs (averaging about 2:45), Armatrading is more outward-looking than on her later songs. Much of her work is done in close-ups, but many of the songs on Whatever's For Us pull back from the "I-you" focus of subsequent efforts to take in the family, especially, and the world at large. Granted, neither is viewed positively, at least in the formal sense. For the album, Armatrading used some of Elton John's brain trust, and especially when she plays piano, the resulting sound is not unlike an early John album such as Tumbleweed Connection. Whatever's For Us is a promising debut that, nevertheless, does not include any material that has proven to be memorable. ~ All Music Guide *

Gary Moore is acknowledged as one of the finest guitarists that the British Isles has ever produced. With his latest studio album "Bad For You Baby", Gary continues with the sequence of blues rock albums that he began with "Old, New, Ballads, Blues" and continued on "Close As You Get". Mixing original tunes with Blues classics that Gary has rediscovered, "Bad For You Baby" reaffirms Moore's exceptional talent as a guitarist and his deep insight into and feel for the Blues as a living musical form.

BOB DYLAN & THE BAND
- Before The Flood (1974)


"Before the Flood" is a 1974 live album by Bob Dylan and The Band, documenting the Bob Dylan and The Band 1974 Tour. Bob Dylan has issued a large number of live albums in his day, but 1974's Before the Flood deserves special mention because of the presence of the Band behind him. Dylan had recently brought the Band into the studio to record the chart-topping (yet still somehow underappreciated) Planet Waves, which was the first (and, as it turned out, only) studio record he made after leaving Columbia for Asylum. He then asked them along on the subsequent tour, which at the time became the most successful rock tour in history. The fruits of that partnership are contained on this two-CD set, which actually ignores Planet Waves completely in favor of older classics. Although the album includes several strong collaborations, the highlights ironically come during Dylan's solo-acoustic portion, which yields powerful and gritty versions of "Don't Think Twice" and "It's Alright Ma," and during the Band's own exhilarating numbers with Dylan sitting out. 1, 2, 3.

Former Guns N' Roses axe-slinger Slash sits in on the raucous title track, while country star Clint Black contributes vocals to the rowdy tunes "Power of Positive Drinkin'" and "Horns of a Dilemma." Best of all, Edgar's brother, guitarist Johnny Winter, appears on "Rockin' the Blues," making for a fiery family reunion. *

THE ROBERT CRAY BAND
- Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (1988)


01. Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
02. Don't You Even Care?
03. Your Secret's Safe With Me
04. I Can't Go Home
05. Night Patrol
06. Actin' This Way
07. Gotta Change The Rules
08. Across The Line
09. At Last
10. Laugh Out Loud

"Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" won the 1988 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album

With 1986's Strong Persuader, guitarist and vocalist Robert Cray stepped to the front of the line as a smooth and intelligent practitioner of the blues genre. Strong Persuader almost worked as well as a greatest hits set, with the brilliant Willie Mitchell-influenced "I Guess I Showed Her" being best of a perfect ten. With that standard being set, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is marred by it's lack of potent material and a tired-sounding band and Cray. The title is a steamy track punctuated by the Memphis Horns. The edgy and methodical "Don't You Even Care" finds Cray again on the losing end of a relationship. Although the relationship blues are stinging here, this album's best effort strays far from the formula. The oddly humorous "Night Patrol" has Cray playing armchair therapist wondering what went wrong with a drunk, and a 17-year-old girl on the corner. By song's end he can also wonder about himself, as he too hits the streets a potentially dangerous wandering psycho. For the most part Don't Be Afraid of the Dark has the sly work Cray is famous for. The sprite "Gotta Change Rules" the country/Memphis sound influenced has Cray doing some strong vocalizations and taut guitar riffs. "At Last" and "Laugh Out Loud," while not horrible, do come off like uninspired filler. This is one of those albums that might not be exciting at first, but if it is listened to intently some of the songs do become worthwhile. ~ All Music Guide *

The Neptune Blues Club are a high-octane blues band, a contagious dance band & a profound psychedelic experience. This house of bad influences was built in Long Beach by tone guru Marc Ford. Constructed on a solid foundation of LA roots royalty; Stephen Hodges on percussion, John Bazz on bass, groove-master Anthony Arvizu behind the kit. This kaleidoscopic collection of influences creates a sum greater than it's parts, perhaps greater than the national debt. The Neptune Blues Club's charter is clear, as founding elder Bernard Steelflex put it "do make them writhe with abandon"

Pink Floyd member Richard Wright dies at age 65

LONDON (AP) — Richard Wright, a founding member of Pink Floyd, died Monday. He was 65.

The rock group's spokesman, Doug Wright, who's unrelated, said Wright died after a battle with cancer at his home in Britain. He said the band member's family did not want to give more details about his death. Wright met Pink Floyd members Roger Waters and Nick Mason in college and joined their early band, Sigma 6. Along with the late Syd Barrett, the four formed Pink Floyd in 1965. The group's jazz-infused rock and drug-laced multimedia "happenings" made them darlings of the London psychedelic scene, and their 1967 album, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn," was a hit. In the early days of Pink Floyd, Wright, along with Barrett, was seen as the group's dominant musical force. The London-born musician and son of a biochemist wrote songs and played the keyboard.

"Rick's keyboards were an integral part of the Pink Floyd sound," said Joe Boyd, a prominent record producer who worked with Pink Floyd early in its career. The band released a series of commercially and critically successful albums including 1973's "The Dark Side of the Moon," which has sold more than 40 million copies. Wright wrote "The Great Gig in the Sky" and "Us and Them" for that album, and worked on the group's epic compositions such as "Atom Heart Mother," "Echoes" and "Shine on You Crazy Diamond." But tensions grew among Waters, Wright and fellow band member David Gilmour. The tensions came to a head during the making of "The Wall" when Waters insisted Wright be fired. As a result, Wright was relegated to the status of session musician on the tour of "The Wall," and did not perform on Pink Floyd's 1983 album, "The Final Cut." Wright formed a new band Zee with Dave Harris from the band Fashion, and released one album, "Identity," with Atlantic Records. Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985 and Wright began recording with Mason and Gilmour again, releasing the albums "The Division Bell" and "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" as Pink Floyd. Wright also released the solo albums "Wet Dream" (1978) and "Broken China" (1996).

In July 2005, Wright, Waters, Mason and Gilmour reunited to perform at the "Live 8" charity concert in London — the first time in 25 years they had been onstage together. Wright also worked on Gilmour's solo projects, most recently playing on the 2006 album "On an Island" and the accompanying world tour.

Gilmour paid tribute to Wright on Monday, saying his input was often forgotten. "He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognized Pink Floyd sound," he said. "I have never played with anyone quite like him."

10. Funky Deux

Wet Dream was the first solo album from Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright, released in 1978. The album went virtually unnoticed at the time. Wet Dream was self-produced and Wright wrote all the songs himself, except "Against The Odds," which was co-written with his then-wife, Juliette. For his album, Wright assembled some of the backing musicians who had been accompanying Pink Floyd for years, in particular reed player Mel Collins and guitarist Snowy White. So, it was no surprise that the resulting record, Wet Dream, sounded like outtakes from Pink Floyd sessions. Wright's keyboards had always been a major element in the Pink Floyd sound, and his singing and songwriting had also been a big part of the group's music, despite the increasing domination of Roger Waters. On Wet Dream, he was interested in providing typically slow, contemplative, keyboard-based arrangements and singing (on about every other tune) in a becalmed, echoey voice of marital discord and escape. Wright's conflict with Waters shortly would lead to his being dismissed from Pink Floyd (and then, bizarrely, hired back as a sideman), and in a sense his release of Wet Dream could be seen as an attempt to step out on his own. But the material, while pleasant enough, seemed more like music he might have written to work on with Pink Floyd if he still had as much input into the group as he had had back around the time of The Dark Side of the Moon, rather than like an independent solo statement. It was hard to imagine anyone but Pink Floyd fans wanting to listen to such an album, and as it turned out not even enough of them cared, since the album sold poorly. *

1996 release of the second solo album from the Pink Floyd keyboardist. It's a musical exploration of the four phases one might experience in a clinincal depression. The sound of the album is very much like his group's albums, but a bit more on the New Age/Ambient side. Personnel includes: Rick Wright (keyboards); Sinead O'Connor (vocals); Pino Palladino (bass); Manu Katche (drums). 1, 2.

"Identity" is the only album by Zee, a short-lived partnership consisting of Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright and Dave Harris of New Romantic outfit Fashion. Released in 1984, Wright has stated that he feels "Identity" was an experiment that should never have been released. The album was written and produced by Wright and Harris and all the lyrics were penned by Harris. The album makes heavy use of the Fairlight CMI, a musical synthesizer popularized in the 1980s. This creates a very electronic sound that persists through every track. 1, 2.

Despite its title, "Freebird: The Movie" does not contain a series of variations on the title song (granted, only four versions of "Freebird" could have fit on a standard-play compact disc). Instead, it captures a number of highlights from the soundtrack of Freebird: The Movie, a documentary about Lynyrd Skynyrd's final tour. In addition to a dynamite version of "Freebird," the album contains a number of rare Skynyrd live cuts, including the first released live takes of "What's Your Name" and "That Smell." For dedicated fans, it's a live memento worth seeking out and cherishing. ~ All Music Guide 1, 2.

11. Body And Soul

Jazz fans who complain about not hearing enough jazz in Cassandra Wilson's eclectic sound, which has increasingly tilted toward pop and blues, will find ample rewards in this collection of her (relatively) straight-ahead efforts from the late '80s. Drawing from four albums for the JMT label, it charts her steady growth away from Brooklyn's electric, funk-based M-Base school and into an earthier, more personal approach. Going to school herself on Betty Carter's elastic time feel and unhurried rhythms, she avoids predictability on songs such as "'Round Midnight" and a wordless rendering of Billy Strayhorn's "Chelsea Bridge." There's less interest in her handling of earlier standards such as "I'm Old Fashioned" and "Blue Skies," which lack depth, but never any lack of attractiveness. 1, 2.

SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY AND THE ASBURY JUKES - Messin' With The Blues (2000)

SONG TITLE: 01. Gin Soaked Boy 02. Livin' With The Blues 03. Rhumba And Coke 04. Sinful 05. Messin' Around With The Blues 06. Tell'em I'm Broke 07. Satan's Shoes 08. Intermission 09. Cadillac Jack 10. Looks Like Rain 11. River's Invitation 12. Come Home Little Girl 13. Mother Earth 14. Kill My Love

Southside Johnny Lyon's first studio release in nearly a decade is a roaring return to form, as well as one of the bluesiest albums in his catalog. Produced by E Street Band bassist and Lyon's friend Garry Tallent (the two share a record collection as well as New Jersey roots), the disc boasts a professional but far-from-slick sound that perfectly captures this rollicking, bar band, horn-driven music. Lyon's voice has toughened over the years, which infuses it with a more ragged tone, adding to the overall sturdiness of the disc's sound. Lyon's terrific harp playing, which has frustratingly stayed on the back burner in the past, bursts out here with authority and conviction. His lip-shredding harmonica on "Sinful" won't put him in a league with Little Walter, but he's sure in the same ballpark. Although about half of the tracks are covers (from Tom Waits, Memphis Slim, and Percy Mayfield, among others), Lyon's co-written originals are some of his best and certainly most bluesy. There's still a taste of the raucous "Havin' a Party" style he's best known for in "Tell 'Em I'm Broke," but the Jukes -- both old and new members contribute -- effectively shift gears into John Lee Hooker-styled boogie ("Kill My Love") and earthy zydeco (Eddie Shuler's "Come Home Little Girl" and the accordion-driven, locomotive tempo of "Looks Like Rain"), as well as creeping, Dr. John-influenced swamp rock gris-gris ("Satan's Shoes"). A phenomenal comeback, and far better than his directionless (and out-of-print) mid-'80s records, Messin' With the Blues fulfills the promise of the Jukes' early recordings and establishes Southside Johnny as a creative and gifted bluesman whose party-animal days are behind him. Hopefully listeners won't have to wait another nine years for the next chapter in the Jukes' story.

If you like blues and funky soul-jazz (with just a twist of the future), this is an album to enjoy. Hammond B-3 artist Ron Levy gathers some of the greatest groove players of all time for this steam session, including Melvin Sparks on guitar and the great Idris Muhammad on drums. Call it retro or acid-jazz if you want, but groove lover Levy never stops playing that funky soul-jazz long enough to look back. This album carries the groove tradition on, maintaining that integrity. Those who look for B-3 jams in the soul-jazz vein that are as funky as can be will not be disappointed. This is a great CD to own. - All Music Guide

10. Through A Long And Sleepless Night
11. Always Coming Back To You
12. Amsterdam

Scott Walker's success as a teen idol singer of Spectorish ballads with the Walker Brothers in no way prepared listeners for the mordant, despairing lyrics of his solo debut. To compound the surprise, he does his best to imitate the vocal girth of Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra on this mix of original tunes and covers, which also features sweeping, bloated orchestral arrangements. It was hardly rock, and pop of a most oddball sort, but it found a surprisingly large audience -- in Britain, anyway, where it reached the Top Three in 1967. Poke behind the velvet curtain of the languid MOR arrangements, and one finds a surprisingly literate existentialist at the helm of these proceedings. His lyrical nuances were probably lost on his audience of predominately teenage girls, though they've earned him a small cult audience that endures to this day. Besides presenting three of his own compositions, Walker covers tunes by Weill/Mann, Tim Hardin, and Andre & Dory Previn on this album, as well as three songs by his favorite writer, Jacques Brel. Highlights include his exquisitely anguished rendition of Brel's classic "Amsterdam" and his dramatic cover of the early-'60s Toni Fisher pop ballad "The Big Hurt." *

Although Walker's second album was his biggest commercial success, actually reaching number one in Britain, it was not his greatest artistic triumph. His taste remains eclectic, encompassing Bacharach/David, Tim Hardin, and of course his main man Jacques Brel (who is covered three times on this album). And his own songwriting efforts hold their own in this esteemed company. "The Girls From the Streets" and "Plastic Palace People" show an uncommonly ambitious lyricist cloaked behind the over-the-top, schmaltzy orchestral arrangements, one more interested in examining the seamy underside of glamour and romance than celebrating its glitter. The Brel tune "Next" must have lifted a few teenage mums' eyebrows with its not-so-hidden hints of homosexuality and abuse. Another Brel tune, "The Girl and the Dogs," is less controversial, but hardly less nasty in its jaded view of romance. Some of the material is not nearly as memorable, however, and the over-the-top show ballad production can get overbearing. The album included his first Top 20 U.K. hit, "Jackie." *

11. Sons Of
12. Funeral Tango
13. If You Go Away

Scott Walker's final British Top Ten album was the first to be dominated by his own songwriting. Ten of the 13 tunes on this 1969 LP are originals; the remaining three, naturally, were written by one of his chief inspirations, Jacques Brel. There are some interesting moments here. "Big Louise" talks about a hefty prostitute with shocking explicitness for a pop star album of the era. "Copenhagen" (like much of Walker's '60s work) foreshadows David Bowie. "Funeral Tango" is a particularly vicious Brel song. "30 Century Man" is an uncommonly folkish and focused tune for Walker. "We Came Through" is an oddball cavalry charge featuring one of his occasional forays into Ennio Morricone spaghetti Western-like production. The tension between Walker's dense, foreboding lyrics and orchestral production is unusual, to say the least. But too often, it's too difficult to penetrate Walker's insights through Wally Scott's string - drenched production. It shrouds the lyrics in a fog that's often too syrupy to justify the effort needed to fight through it. *

SCOTT WALKER

01. On Your Own Again
02. The World's Strongest Man
03. Angels Of Ashes
04. Boy Child
05. The Seventh Seal
06. Hero Of The War
07. The Old Man's Back Again
08. Duchess
09. Get Behind Me
10. Rhymes Of Goodbye

Walker dropped out of the British Top Ten with his fourth album, but the result was probably his finest '60s LP. While the tension between the bloated production and his introspective, ambitious lyrics remains, much of the over-the-top bombast of the orchestral arrangements has been reined in, leaving a relatively stripped-down approach that complements his songs rather than smothering them. This is the first Walker album to feature entirely original material, and his songwriting is more lucid and cutting. Several of the tracks stand among his finest. "The Seventh Seal," based upon the classic film by Ingmar Bergman, features remarkably ambitious (and relatively successful) lyrics set against a haunting Ennio Morricone-style arrangement. "The Old Man's Back Again" also echoes Morricone, and tackles no less ambitious a lyrical palette; "dedicated to the neo-Stalinist regime," the "old man" of this song was supposedly Josef Stalin. "Hero of the War" is also one of Walker's better vignettes, serenading his war hero with a cryptic mix of tribute and irony. Other songs show engaging folk, country, and soul influences that were largely buried on his previous solo albums. *

ETTA JAMES - Her Best (1997)

SONG TITLE:
01. At Last 02. All I Could Do Is Cry 03. If I Can't Have You 04. A Sunday Kind Of Love 05. My Dearest Darling 06. Something's Got A Hold On Me 07. Trust In Me 08. Next Door To The Blues 09. Don't Cry Baby 10. Fool That I Am 11. Two Sides (To Every Story) 12. Pushover 13. Stop The Wedding 14. In The Basement, Part One 15. Baby What You Want Me To Do 16. I'd Rather Go Blind 17. Security 18. Losers Weepers 19. All The Way Down 20. Tell Mama

Whether she sings string-laden pop ballads, lively soul, or gritty electric blues, James's high-powered, enormously expressive voice displays a knack for passionate blues inflections. Emotionally charged ballads including "At Last" and "All I Could Do is Cry" find James blasting through the orchestra with unearthly wails and moans. "If I Can't Have You," a duet with Harvey Fuqua, drops the orchestra in favor of horn-driven R&B and "Something's Got a Hold On Me" is a gospel-flavored romp reminiscent of Ray Charles. A live version of Jimmy Reed's "Baby, What You Want Me to Do" shows her raunchiest Chicago-blues style, and "In the Basement," with Sugar Pie DeSanto, is a funky workout. Also here are three classics from her soul-drenched 1967 Muscle Shoals sessions.

ELVIN BISHOP
- The Blues Rolls On (2008)


Elvin Bishop - the founding member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band whose music has been called "sheer, unpretentious joy" by Entertainment Weekly - has completed work on 'The Blues Rolls On.' The album harks back to Bishop's roots, paying tribute to the musicians who helped give him his start. A who's who of blues musicians support Bishop on the album, including B. B. King, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, George Thorogood, James Cotton, Kim Wilson, Tommy Castro, John Nemeth, Ronnie Baker Brooks, and Angela Strehli. Bishop handles the majority of the vocals, with Nemeth and others pitching in as well. Bishop revisits his own '70s solo hit "Struttin' My Stuff" with Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, Junior Wells' "Come On In This House," and the Butterfield Band's "Yonders Wall" and Hound Dog Taylor's "Send You Back To Georgia." He also contributes the autobiographical boogie "Oklahoma," played solo electric. Sessions for the rollicking album ranged from Jacksonville, FL to Clarksdale, MS, and to a cruise ship off the Mexican coast. Bishop is a slide guitar great with 45-years of blues under his belt. Rolling Stone has tagged Bishop's music as "raucous," praising his "careening slide and razor-edged bursts, all delivered with unflagging enthusiasm and wit." He is a founding member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and recorded three groundbreaking albums with the group. After launching a solo career, Bishop's 1976 single "Fooled Around and Fell In Love" reached number three on Billboard's Pop Singles chart, pushing the album 'Struttin' My Stuff' to number 18 on the the Pop Albums chart. He has performed on recordings by John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, and The Allman Brothers Band, among many others. On stage, he's wielded his guitar to accompany the likes of Eric Clapton, Hendrix, Big Joe Williams, Little Walter, Wells, Taylor, and many others. *

"That little ol' band from Texas," ZZ TOP shifted into overdrive in 1983 with the trio's eighth studio album, Eliminator. Creating a new sound by combining the humming synthesizers of new wave and fusing them to its trademark hot-rodded blues boogie, the album roared into the MTV age powered by a trio of smash radio singles and videos featuring the iconic red '33 Ford three-window. (The album holds the rare distinction of being among the first group of albums to be awarded diamond certification by the RIAA for sales of 10 million copies). The Eliminator Collector's Edition CD contains a remastered version of the album's first pressing, including the rare original album version of the Top 10 smash "Legs," which was replaced on subsequent pressings with a single version edited for radio. Along with the hit singles "Gimme All Your Lovin'" and "Sharp Dressed Man," the disc also features seven bonus tracks. Five are previously unreleased live performances of songs from Eliminator. The live tracks include "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man," "TV Dinners," and "Got Me Under Pressure," all recorded at Castle Donnington in England as well as "I Got The Six," recorded at The Marquee Club in London. The bonus tracks feature both the single and 12-inch dance remix versions of "Legs." The deluxe packaging also features rare photos and extensive liner notes from longtime ZZ TOP publicist and confidant Bob Merlis. 1, 2.

RICKIE LEE JONES
- Pop Pop (1991)


01. My One And Only Love
02. Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most
03. Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo
04. Up From The Skies
05. Second Time Around
06. Dat Dere
07. I'll Be Seeing You
08. Bye Bye Blackbird
09. The Ballad Of The Sad Young Men
10. I Won't Grow Up
11. Love Junkyard
12. Comin' Back To Me

Rickie Lee Jones last flirted with the jazz-standard repertoire on Girl at Her Volcano, from 1983. On that album, Jones took the theme of Billy Strayhorn's "Lush Life" perhaps too seriously, wallowing in the warm, woozy nether world of "jazz and cocktails." Jones has worked her way through various transformations since then, from days of whiskey and roses to her current straight life with her family, and from her early-Eighties salad days to her mature and more modest industry profile in the last few years. Now comes the wonderful and deceptively casual Pop Pop, another jazz-spiced entity altogether. On this album the ambience is afterglow, and the prevailing theme is love, as distinct from lust. Jones stretches out in spare settings, mostly with Robben Ford on nylon-string acoustic guitar and woodsy jazz great Charlie Haden on bass. The guest book includes Dino Saluzzi on bandoneon (the smaller tango accordion) and tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, who solos evocatively on "Bye Bye Blackbird." Disarming in its warmth, stark in its directness, Pop Pop is an album that's soft to the touch and deep in the bone. As a portrait of the artist, it presents a view of a woman in retreat from her volcano, now enjoying the simpler pleasures of life and music.

ARETHA FRANKLIN
- Spirit In The Dark (1970)


01. Don't Play That Song
02. The Thrill Is Gone (From Yesterday's Kiss)
03. Pullin'
04. You And Me
05. Honest I Do
06. Spirit in the Dark
07. When The Battle Is Over
08. One Way Ticket
09. Try Matty's
10. That's All I Want From You
11. Oh No Not My Baby
12. Why I Sing The Blues

"Spirit In The Dark" represents Aretha Franklin at the height of her majestic vocal power. This is Southern, gospel - based R&B/soul circa 1969/70, featuring the cream of the genre's players: the Dixie Flyers, the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the under-rated Cornell Dupree, and the late guitar wizard Duane Allman (of the Allman Brothers.). The then-unbeatable production team of Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, and Arif Mardin (guys who were clearly concerned with the music, not just the way the balance sheet looked) manned the controls to achieve a clean, undeniably powerful sound. The material is a nice mix of pop ("Oh No Not My Baby"), blues ("The Thrill is Gone"), and mid-tempo soul tunes that balance strut with hurt ("Don't Play That Song"). At the center of each of these tracks, of course, are the Queen of Soul's powerhouse pipes. Here Franklin sings with passion tinged with vulnerability, and an authority that few contemporary singers--even decades after Franklin's heyday - can match. Though not as widely touted as "I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You" or "Aretha Now, Spirit In The Dark" is among the most consistent and dynamic records of the singer's Atlantic tenure.

GRACE POTTER AND THE NOCTURNALS
- This Is Somewhere (2007)

01. Ah Mary
02. Stop The Bus
03. Apologies
04. Ain't No Time
05. Mr. Columbus
06. You May See Me
07. Lose Some Time
08. Mastermind
09. Here's To The Meantime
10. Falling Or Flying
11. Big White Gate

What distinguishes Vermont's Grace Potter from the recent run of the female singer-songwriter mill is her affinity for anthems and a powerhouse band that can deliver the goods. Though quieter fare such as "You May See Me" and "Lose Some Time" finds one foot in folk music, her heart is plainly with hard-charging rockers such as the opening "Ah Mary," the melodic propulsion of "Ain't No Time," and the supercharged kick of "Mastermind." Ballads such as "Apologies" and "Falling or Flying" show her soulful side, while the sexually assertive road song "Stop the Bus" provides further indication of her range. The closing "Big White Gate" sounds like a gospel cousin of John Prine's "Angel from Montgomery."

KEITH EMERSON BAND FEATURING MARC BONILLA (2008)

SONG TITLE: 01. Ignition 02. 1st Presence 03. Last Horizon 04. Miles Away Pt 1 05. Miles Away Pt 2 06. Crusadres Cross 07. Fugue 08. 2nd Presence 09. Marche Train 10.

Throughout his career with the Nice, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and as a solo artist, Keith Emerson has proven himself perhaps the greatest, most technically accomplished keyboardist in rock history. For all his reputation as an innovator and master of classically influenced rock, Emerson began his career playing R&B; the Nice got their first big break backing soul singer P.P. Arnold in 1967. Independently of Arnold, the Nice carved out a niche in the fledgling prog rock movement, with Emerson's classical flourishes and flamboyant showmanship (flinging knives at his keyboard, etc.) leading the way. After the Nice's dissolution, Emerson fleshed out his musical ideas to their fullest with Emerson, Lake & Palmer, which debuted in 1970 and had a series of highly successful albums throughout the decade. Emerson made his solo debut in 1976 with the single "Honky Tonk Train Blues," which hit the U.K. Top 30, but did not pursue a solo career in earnest until after ELP's 1980 breakup. Emerson first scored the films The Inferno (1980) and Nighthawks (1981), but did not return until 1985, when he released Honky. 1986 found Emerson participating in a revamped ELP -- this time with drummer Cozy Powell -- but still finding time to record the solo LP Murderock. In 1987, Emerson released Harmageddon/China Free Fall, and the following year, he undertook a project with Carl Palmer and songwriter Robert Berry. Emerson, Lake & Palmer reunited in 1992 to record new material and tour, but when this venture proved less successful than hoped, Emerson announced his retirement from the music business in 1994. That retirement was short-lived, though, as Emerson went on to release the occasional collection of new material or appear on-stage. He even reunited with Nice bandmates Brian Davison and Lee Jackson for a show in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2002 (Vivacitas). He penned an autobiography, Pictures of an Exhibitionist, in 2004 and received the compilation treatment from Castle Records in 2005 with the two-disc Hammer It Out: The Anthology.

He is currently on tour with The Keith Emerson Band and the new album titled "Keith Emerson Band Featuring Marc Bonilla" is released in September 2008.

B.B. KING - Let The Good Times Roll
- The Music Of Louis Jordan (1999)

01. Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens
02. Is You Is, Or Is You Ain't (My Baby)
03. Beware, Brother, Beware
04. Somebody Done Changed...
05. Ain't That Just Like a Woman
06. Choo Choo Ch'Boogie
07. Buzz Me
08. Early in the Mornin'
09. I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts...
10. Jack, You're Dead!
11. Knock Me a Kiss
12. Let The Good Times Roll
13. Caldonia
14. It's A Great, Great Pleasure
15. Rusty Dusty Blues (Mama Mama Blues)
16. Sure Had A Wonderful Time Last Night
17. Saturday Night Fish Fry
18. Nobody Knows You When...

Though a wry humor permeates many of B.B. King's classic performances, "funny" is not necessarily the first word that comes to mind, making this 1999 collection of rollicking tunes written or popularized by jump-blues vocalist Louis Jordan seem an odd project at first. However, any doubts are vanquished within the first minute of the opening "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens." Wisely avoiding straight imitation of Jordan's unique style, King adapts the songs to suit himself. This means that "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby" gains a sly swagger and a slightly risque undertone, as if the question is purely rhetorical. King was nearly the only member of his blues generation to still be touring and recording actively by the late '90s, and LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL shows this blues master at the top of his game.

"Is You Is, Or Is You Ain't (My Baby)" won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album.

JOHNNY CASH & WYLON JENNINGS
- Heroes (1986)


01. Folks Out On The Road
02. I'm Never Gonna Roam Again
03. American By Birth
04. Field Of Diamonds
05. Heroes
06. Even Cowgirls Get The Blues
07. Love Is The Way
08. Ballad Of Forty Dollars
09. I'll Always Love You (In My Own Crazy Way)
10. One Too Many Mornings

"Heroes" is an album by country singers Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, released in 1986. Although the two musicians had collaborated several times before - most notably in 1985 as part of The Highwaymen, along with Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson - this was the duo's first and only full-length album. Heroes was also Cash's last original release on Columbia, with which he parted ways soon after the record's release. "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" charted as a single, reaching No. 35 on the country charts. "Field of Diamonds" was recorded by Cash fourteen years later for American III: Solitary Man (2000). The last track, "One Too Many Mornings" is a song written by Bob Dylan for his album The Times They Are a-Changin', and had been recorded, but deemed unusable, by Cash and Dylan in 1969 during the sessions for Nashville Skyline.

LUCINDA WILLIAMS
- World Without Tears (2003)


01. Fruits Of My Labor
02. Righteously
03. Ventura
04. Real Live Bleeding Fingers And Broken Guitar Strings
05. Overtime
06. Those Three Days
07. Atonement
08. Sweet Side
09. Minneapolis
10. People Talkin'
11. American Dream
12. World Without Tears
13. Words Fell

Most artists who appeal to adult listeners tend to settle into a comfortable niche, but Lucinda Williams refuses to play it safe. Instead, her music stings like an open wound, as she continues to strip away the protective layers from her art's emotional core. Though Williams has long been prized for the naked honesty of her music, this collection is even rawer than its predecessors. From the down-and-dirty bar-band blues of "Atonement" to the Rolling Stones-style swagger of "Bleeding Fingers" to the tricky balance of debasement and transcendence in "Ventura," Williams leaves the nerve endings of her music exposed. With the band opting for first-take immediacy rather than polish, some of the most powerful material is also the neediest, as the singer addresses lovers who have disrespected her ("Righteously") or abandoned her ("Those Three Days," "Minneapolis"). Though her attempts at rap on "Sweet Side" and "American Dream" might cause diehard fans to wince, her willingness to take creative chances reaffirms her position at the vanguard of a rootsy progressivism that transcends musical category. Simply put, there's more Patti Smith in her than there is Patsy Cline.

"World Without Tears" was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. "Righteously" was nominated for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.

DONNA THE BUFFALO
- Silverlined (2008)

The album also includes the talents of such well-known guests as Béla Fleck, Claire Lynch, David Hidalgo and Amy Helm.

SONG TITLE: 01. Temporary Misery 02. Tomorrow Still Knows 03. Locket And Key 04. Garden of Eden 05. Broken Record 06. Meant to Be 07. Biggie K 08. Silverlined 09. The Call 10. Riddle 11. Blue Eyes 12. Beauty Within 13. Forty Days And Forty Nights

Donna the Buffalo is an American band from Trumansburg, New York. They play several musical styles: zydeco, jamming, folk-rock, country rock, reggae and bluegrass. They play both originals (primarily written by Jeb Puryear and Tara Nevins) and covers. Donna the Buffalo's music is often sociopolitical in nature, calling for peace and justice. Other songs refer to timeless themes, such as love, birth and death.

PAUL WELLER - 22 Dreams (2008)

SONG TITLE:
01.Light Nights 02.22 Dreams 03.All I Wanna Do (Is Be With You) 04.Have You Made Up Your Mind 05.Empty Ring 06.Invisible 07.Song For Alice 08.Cold Moments 09.The Dark Pages Of September Lead To The New Leaves Of Spring 10.Black River 11.Why Walk When You Can Run 12.Push It Along 13.A Dream Reprise 14.Echoes Round The Sun 15.One Bright Star 16.Lullaby Fur Kinder 17.Where'er Ye Go 18.God 19.111 20.Sea Spray 21.Night Lights

For his ninth solo album, "22 Dreams," acclaimed English veteran singer-songwriter Paul Weller cranks out an unpredictable variety of musical styles, from classical, jazz and folk, to spoken word and abstract jams. Weller has been in the music industry more than 30 years, and his latest release proves to be one of his most ambitious yet. Weller deliberately keeps listeners playing a what-next? guessing game, but the overall tone of "22 Dreams" is an imaginative, blissful, and, well, dream-like state. Not all of these songs, however, are of a mysterious, nocturnal nature. "Black River" floats along with springtime glee, carelessly following a light lounge-piano and a relaxed strumming or sliding guitar. "All I Want To Do (Is Be With You)" is the record’s most approachable, easy-going pop-rock tune; although "Have You Made Up Your Mind" is also in a top-40 adult contemporary mindset. These tracks have such mainstream appeal that it’s hard to believe they are on the same record as, say, the noisy, percussion-driven "Echoes Round The Sun" or the spooky instrumental buzzing of "111"--but then, it would be odd to hear most of these songs together on a single album.

WAYLON JENNINGS
- This Time (1974)


SONG TITLE: 01.This Time 02.Louisiana Woman 03.Pick up the Tempo 04.Slow Rollin' Low 05.Heaven or Hell 06.It's Not Supposed to Be That Way 07.Slow Movin' Outlaw 08.Mona 09.Walkin' 10.If You Could Touch Her at All 11.That'll Be the Day (previously unreleased) 12.It Doesn't Matter Anymore (previously unreleased) 13.Lady in the Harbor (previously unreleased, original version) 14.Well All Right / It's So Easy / Maybe Baby / Peggy Sue 15.If You're Goin' Girl (previously unreleased)

Digitally remastered by Elliott Federman (SAJE Sound, New York, New York, 1999).

Buddha Records is to be commended for resurrecting many of Waylon's finest, long out-of-print '70s albums, with extra tracks to boot. "This Time" is marked by Jenning's classic mid-'70s "outlaw country" sound; bare-bones production and raw, rock-inflected musicianship. The title song is a forceful statement of intent, while "Louisiana Women" features a slinky, uncharacteristically understated vocal performance. "This Time" is the immediate successor to Jennings' genre-defining finest hour, HONKY TONK HEROES, an album full of Billy Joe Shaver songs, and Shaver's work pops up here as well. His bluesy, churning "Slow Rollin' Low" is a classic Shaver underdog anti-anthem. The bonus tracks are of historical interest, as they feature Waylon backed by Buddy Holly's Crickets, of which Jennings was a member before his solo career. They tackle Holly tunes in a country style, with unsurprisingly magical results. Thus, the reissue of THIS TIME offers an even more revealing portrait of Jennings' artistry at its peak than the original release does.

GRAHAM BONNET
- The Day I Went Mad... (1999)


SONG TITLE: 01.The Day I Went Mad 02.Don't Look Down 03.Killer 04.Oh! Darling 05.Hey That's Me 06.This Day 07.Flying Not Falling 08.Lolita Crush 09.Model Inc. 10.Spiked! 11.Greenwich Meantime

In the 1980s, hard rock and heavy metal were all about the way you looked. If you didn't have long hair and dress in studs, spikes, leather, or spandex, you stuck out like a sore thumb. Singer Graham Bonnet - who sported a look that was equal parts James Dean and Miami Vice-era Don Johnson - was a prime example of this, despite fronting (albeit briefly) such renowned acts as Rainbow, the Michael Schenker Group, and Alcatrazz. Born December 23, 1947, in Skegness, Lincolnshire, England, Bonnet had his first taste of success in the music biz in the late '60s, when he scored a hit with his band, the Marbles - "Only One Woman." Bonnet supposedly spent most of the '70s doing commercial jingles, before issuing a self-titled solo debut in 1977, which became a hit in Australia due to a cover of Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," and scoring another cover hit a year later with the Bee Gees' "Warm Ride." Just before the close of the decade, Bonnet was chosen to replace Ronnie James Dio in Rainbow, which saw the group transform into a more melodic and radio-friendly act with 1980's Down to Earth. But Bonnet's tenure with Rainbow was short-lived, as he then returned to a solo career, scoring a U.K. hit single with "Night Games" off of 1981's Line Up. Up next was another brief association, with the Michael Schenker Group, which also lasted for a single album - 1982's Assault Attack. A year later, Bonnet co-formed an all new band, Alcatrazz, which featured two of the biggest rock guitar heroes of the '80s -- Yngwie Malmsteen (on 1984's No Parole from Rock 'n' Roll and Live Sentence) and Steve Vai (on 1985's Disturbing the Peace). However, after a third studio album, 1986's Dangerous Games, Alcatrazz were kaput. Subsequently, Bonnet has appeared on albums by others - including Pretty Maids, Impellitteri, and Eddie Hardin -- and has also sporadically issued further solo sets (1991's Here Comes the Night, 1997's Underground, and 1999's The Day I Went Mad). ~ All Music Guide 1, 2.

STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN AND DOUBLE TROUBLE - The Essential (2002)

Epic's The Essential Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble gathers two discs' worth of the late blues guitarist's work, including many live performances and a few tracks with the Vaughan Brothers. The collection presents Vaughan's material in roughly chronological order, from the 1980 live recording "Shake for Me" to 1989's "Life by the Drop." It also touches on most of Vaughan's definitive songs and performances, including "Tightrope," "Wall of Denial," "Couldn't Stand the Weather," and "Cold Shot," and live versions of "The Sky Is Crying," "Superstition," and "Rude Mood/Hide Away." Though this album doesn't offer anything that hasn't already been released in some form or another, it does go into slightly more depth than several of the other Stevie Ray Vaughan retrospectives by presenting both his greatest studio hits and some of his best live work. ~ All Music Guide

QUEEN - At The BBC (1995)

01. My Fairy King
02. Keep Yourself Alive
03. Doin' Alright
04. Liar
05. Ogre Battle
06. Great King Rat
07. Modern Times Rock'N'Roll
08. Son And Daughter

Since Queen's first official live album was 1979's LIVE KILLERS, many early Queen tours had gone by undocumented. Released in 1995, collects eight tracks recorded live in 1973 for England's influential BBC Radio, while the band was touring behind their self-titled debut. Their sound was still in its formative stages - a cross between heavy metal and pop-rock. The band was still a few years away from composing such sprawling classics as "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Somebody To Love." And since AT THE BBC was recorded by the BBC staff and not by a producer of Queen's choosing, the sound is not as consistently strong as that of their official albums. Still, AT THE BBC is a very interesting artifact for fans curious to hear the sound of early live Queen. Although not a true live album (guitar and vocal overdubs are evident), AT THE BBC contains killer versions of Queen's early rock classics "Keep Yourself Alive," "Great King Rat," "Son And Daughter," "Liar" and "Modern Times Rock N' Roll." A track which would later turn up on QUEEN II - "Ogre Battle" - is included here, as are a pair of early ballads, "Doin' Alright" and "My Fairy King." Recorded live on February 5, 1973 and December 3, 1973. *

SCOTT ELLISON - Ice Storm (2008)

Original compositions and classic, hard-rocking blues guitar, backed by one of the tightest touring bands around today.

01. Steamin'
02. Big Blue Car
03. Pride
04. 4th of July
05. King Of The Blues
06. Keys To My Heart
07. I'm In Trouble
08. Cadillac Woman
09. Who Will Be the Fool
10. Why'd Ya Lie to Me
11. Ice Storm
12. Where You Stand With Me

Hailing from Tulsa, OK, singer/guitarist Scott Ellison can sing and solo with the best of the bluesrockers circa the early 21st century, and 2008's Ice Storm certainly proves this fact. As with most of the artists on the Earwig label, Ellison isn't afraid to merge his bluesrock with horn accompaniments, and the end result is certain to please fans of the genre. Standout tracks include the horn/guitar solo smorgasbord known as "Big Blue Car," the slightly funkyish "Pride," and the blues shuffle "Cadillac Woman," as well as the speedy instrumental title track. Although he's been on the music scene since the '70s, there's no question that Ellison has certainly hit his groove on Ice Storm. - All Music Guide

CHRIS REA - Whatever Happened To Benny Santini? (1978)

04. Dancing with Charlie
05. Bows and Bangles
06. Fool (If You Think It's Over)

Though he had already cut a single, "So Much Love," for Magnet Records in 1975, this was Chris Rea's first full-length album. While "So Much Love" had basically disappeared quickly upon its release, the song "Fool (If You Think It's Over)" from Whatever Happened to Benny Santini? became his largest hit, especially in the U.S., where it was nominated for a Grammy (though it didn't win). Often the hit song from an album is not the best. In this case, though, it is. The rest of the album is somewhat mediocre, with too-polished production. Though Rea reportedly wasn't overly happy with the sound of the album, he did end up using the same producer for his next album, Deltics. The songs on Benny Santini are a mix of well-crafted, if unexciting, guitar rock pop songs and wistful ballads similar to, but not as strong as, "Fool (If You Think It's Over)." What makes the album stand out from similar late-'70s middle-of-the-road rock pop is Rea's voice. A gravelly, warm baritone, it's got a sort of Joe Cocker sound to it. A track like "Because of You" is made all the more touching by the emotiveness inherent in his voice. The album title refers to a name that Magnet Records was considering christening Rea with as a way to make him more spiffy sounding -- sort of the "John Cougar syndrome" that record labels sometimes have. ~ All Music Guide

MARK KNOPFLER
- Last Exit To Brooklyn (1989)


01. Last Exit To Brooklyn
02. Victims
03. Think Fast
04. A Love Idea
05. Tralala
06. Riot
07. The Reckoning
08. As Low As It Gets
09. Finale - Last Exit To Brooklyn

Unlike Mark Knopfler's first three soundtracks, his music for Last Exit to Brooklyn did not sound like outtakes from Dire Straits sessions, but instead consisted of fully orchestrated scoring, even if the credit "music performed by Guy Fletcher" sested that most of the string-like sound was being made by a synthesizer. Nevertheless, this was Knopfler's most ambitious and accomplished soundtrack. Guy Fletcher is a multi-instrumentalist, best known for his position as the keyboardist in the popular English rock band Dire Straits from 1984 until the group's dissolution, and his involvement in nearly every part of Mark Knopfler's solo work to date.

05. Sporting Life Blues (traditional)

11. Don't Cry Sister (JJ Cale)
12. Last Will and Testament (JJ Cale)
13. Who Am I Telling You? (JJ Cale)
14. Ride The River (JJ Cale)

After years of admiring each other's musical masterworks, guitar great J.J. Cale and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer/Grammy-winner Eric Clapton have teamed up to create an original album together called The Road to Escondido. The resulting hybrid sound defies labels, and instead finds influence across the spectrum of blues, rock, country, and fold. The songs are warm and rich with deep-flowing rhythms while using an economy of words to express much. *

THE JEFF HEALEY BAND
- Get Me Some (2000)

02. Hey Hey
03. My Life Story
04. I Tried
05. I Should Have Told You
06. Love Is the Answer
07. Damage Is Done
08. Feel Better
09. Holding On
10. Macon Georgia Blue
11. House Is Burning Down
12. Runaway Heart
13. Rachel's Song

Over ten years into his recording career, singer/guitarist Jeff Healey continues to churn out rockin' blues especially on his 2000 release, "Get Me Some". Not a lot has changed over the years Healey still specializes in a melodic form of bluesrock that would sound perfect on mainstream rock radio or in the followup to Roadhouse. The classic Jeff Healey sound/approach can be heard throughout especially on such uptempo ditties as the albumopening "Which One" and "My Life Story," while also taking it down a notch on the Allman Brothersesque "Macon Georgia Blue" and the guitar/vocal albumcloser, "Rachel's Song."

A two-CD live collection from a band left splintered by the departure of bassist-songwriter Roger Waters, "Pulse" is perhaps best noted for the blinking red light that was set in its spine upon initial release. It contains the remaining band (with guest musicians) performing the entire Dark Side of the Moon album, the novelty of which wears off soon after the crowd noise interrupts any potential intimacy. The crowd also sings along for several songs, which makes this either a great audio-video document or a misguided attempt at replicating the live experience. The first disc features a healthy portion of material originating after Waters' acrimonious exit from the band. There are two tracks from 1987's "A Momentary Lapse of Region" (Sorrow and Learning to Fly) and five from 1994's "The Division Bell" (What Do You Want from Me, A Great Day for Freedom, High Hopes, Keep Talking, and Coming Back to Life). These are intermixed alongside some older Pink Floyd tracks: Shine on You Crazy Diamond from Wish You Were Here, Astronomy Domine from 1967's The Piper at the Gates, and two classic cuts from "The Wall". Disc Two takes us through a complete version of "Dark Side of the Moon"; the live setting does take something away from the purity and magic of these songs, so your appreciation of the live set may depend upon the depth of your commitment to Pink Floyd itself. Three tracks are added on at the end in the form of musical encores. 1, 2, 3, 4.

SANTANA BROTHERS
- Santana Brothers (1994)


01. Transmutation / Industrial
02. Thoughts

03. Luz Amor Y Vidathumbup
04. En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor
05. Contigo
06. Blues Latino
07. La Danza
08. Brujo
09. The Trip
10. Reflections
11. Morning In Marin

Carlos comes together with his brother Jorge and their nephew Carlos Hernandez to tear it up family-style on their monster guitar opus, "Brothers". Released on Carlos's Guts & Grace imprint, "Brothers" is a relentlessly fiery barrage of hard, prog-guitar textures and grooves. Several of the cuts were co-written by Jorge, who is a prodigious guitarist-composer in his own right. For a rare and exciting change, the elder Carlos of the ensemble tries his hand on the drums (overdubbed), upping the ante on the thunderous "Transmutation/Industrial," which features all three six-stringers with their amps cranked to 11. The three again duel it out on the frantic, two-toned "The Trip," which affords a fun look at where their personal styles meet and diverge. "Thoughts" is a brisk metallic-melodic jaunt a la Steve Vai, penned by and featuring nephew Carlos on guitar with spare backup from the band's rhythm section. Jorge's gentle and lonely solo treatment of the misty instrumental "Morning in Marin" evokes the spirit of Stevie Ray Vaughan, or perhaps the young Ritchie Valens on "Sleepwalking." "Luz Amor Y Vida" was nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in the 37th Annual Grammy Awards.

THE KINKS - Percy (1971)

01. God's Children
02. Lola
03. Way Love Used To Be
04. Completely
05. Running Round Town
06. Moments
07. Animals In The Zoo
08. Just Friends
09. Whip Lady
10. Dreams
11. Helga
12. Willesden Green
13. God's Children - End

This is the soundtrack to the quirky 1971 film "Percy" that saw Ray Davies and bandmates contribute all of the music to the film. If you're a fan of the 60's and early 70's music by The Kinks then you will surely find much to love here on this album. There are a few instrumentals including a great version of "Lola" combined with many new full songs with lyrics. Ray Davies and company had already participated in one failed television musical when the movie Percy came along -- it wasn't as original as Arthur, nor did Davies have nearly as much to do with its creation, but he still outdid himself given the material at hand. Directed and co-produced by Ralph Thomas, who had been responsible for some brilliant thrillers (The Clouded Yellow, Above Us the Waves) and very popular comedies (Doctor in the House) in past decades, Percy was the story of the world's first penis transplant (it was probably inspired, or at least justified, by big-budget efforts of the period like Myra Breckinridge). Although virtually unseen in the United States, it was still popular enough to yield a sequel (Percy's Progress), but its real impact came from its soundtrack. Davies wrote some hauntingly beautiful ballads and some solid blues and country as well -- "God's Children" and "Animals in the Zoo" have turned up on some career anthologies, but there's a lot more to Percy than those two tracks. "Completely" is as fine a slow blues as the band ever recorded, with a sizzling performance by Dave Davies, and "Dreams" is a pretty solid rocker, even up alongside "Animals in the Zoo." To this day the album has never appeared in the U.S. catalog -- recorded at the tail end of their contract with Pye Records in England and Warner/Reprise in America, and connected with a movie that was never going to see much exposure in the U.S.A., Reprise passed on it at the time. ~ All Music Guide

04. John Brown

11. Pray For the USA (featuring Phoebe Snow)
12. Down By the Riverside (featuring Jane Fonda/Odetta)
13. Everyone In the World

Maria Muldaur's roots are in the folk revival of the early '60s, a time when figures like Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan were making bold statements about the civil rights movement, Vietnam, and other burning issues of the day. More than four decades later, in the face of political and social issues in which the stakes are equally high, Muldaur assembles a group of legendary female performers to lend their voices in a critical examination of where we are as a nation and where we're going. Songs include "Yes, We Can," "John Brown" and "Pray for the U.S.A." The guest list includes Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, Holly Near, Phoebe Snow, Odetta and Jane Fonda.

ARLEN ROTH - Toolin' Around Woodstock With Levon Helm (2008)

A truly historic album. ARLEN teams up with American music legend LEVON HELM’s drumming and vocals on this rousing roots/rock joyride recorded at LEVON’s studio in Woodstock, NY. Special guests include “Slide Wizard” Sonny Landreth, “King of Dieselbilly” Bill Kirchen, Lexie Roth whose debut CD “One Long Blink” won praise worldwide, and Amy Helm from the wonderful group Ollabelle. Together with an outstanding bunch of A-List backing players, they tear through a collection of classic songs by Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Carl Perkins, Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, and other greats with a few of Arlen’s thrown in for good measure.

01. Sweet Little Sixteen - Chuck Berry (Levon Helm - Vocal & Drums, Arlen - Lead Guitar) 02. Games People Play - Joe South (Bill Kirchen and Arlen - Vocals & Guitars) 03. Ballad of a Thin Man - Bob Dylan (Arlen - Lead Guitar, Levon Helm - Drums) 04. Matchbox - Carl Perkins (Arlen - Vocals & Guitars, Levon Helm - Drums) 05. Sleepwalk - S. Farina, J. Farina, A. Farina (Arlen - Lead Guitar, Levon Helm - Drums) 06. Cryin’ Time - Buck Owens (Levon Helm - Vocal & Drums, Lexie Roth & Amy Helm -backing vocals) 07. Tumblin’ - Arlen Roth (Sonny Landreth & Arlen - Slide Guitars) 08. Night Life - W. Nelson, W. Breeland, P. Biskirk (Lexie Roth - Vocal, Levon Helm - Drums) 09. Gas Station Frustration - Arlen Roth (Bill Kirchen - Vocal & Lead Guitar, Arlen - Lead guitar) 10. Unchained Melody - A. North, H. Zaret (Arlen - Lead Guitar, Levon Helm - Drums) 11. Burnt Child - S. Terry, B. McGhee (Arlen - Vocal & Guitars) 12. Don’t Lie to Me - Chuck Berry (Arlen – Vocal & Guitars, Levon Helm – Drums) 13. Just One Look - D. Payne, G. Carroll (Lexie Roth & Amy Helm - Vocals) 14. Deep Feeling - Chuck Berry (Sonny Landreth & Arlen - Slide guitars)

Guitarist Arlen Roth is best known to other guitarist (and those who employ them) rather than to the music-buying public. His work with Eric Anderson, Paul Simon, Pete Seeger, Rick Wakeman, Livingston Taylor and Loudon Wainright III have shown Roth to be a talented and flexible player, and his well-regarded series of instructional materials have shown him to be as adept at teaching as he is at performing. But his own releases, sprinkled throughout the decades from the '60s onward, have never broken as widely as his session work. His latest set, much of it cut live-in-the-studio, includes heavyweight roots-music friends Levon Helm, Bill Kirchen and Sonny Landreth. The set list is heavy on familiar covers, but the players' depth, and the depth of their musical friendships, gives this a dimension well beyond the songs themselves.

MAGIC SLIM & THE TEARDROPS

03. Still A Fool
04. Black Tornado

Magic Slim & the Teardrops are considered by many to be "the last real Chicago blues band." Slim has stayed true to his roots with his intense style of electrified Mississippi blues and now stands as one of the last living proponents of the genre. Black Tornado packs a walloping punch of ferocious guitar work, sandpaper rough vocals, and enough blues power to burn a fire extinguisher factory to the ground.

DONOVAN - Sutras (1996)

01. Please Don't Bend
02. Give It All Up
03. Sleep
04. Everlasting Sea
05. High Your Love
06. The Clear-Browed One
07. The Way
08. Deep Peace
09. Nirvana
10. Eldorado
11. Be Mine
12. Lady Of The Lamp
13. The Evernow
14. Universe Am I

"Sutras" is the nineteenth studio album, and twenty-second album overall, from Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan. It was released in the UK and the US on October 14, 1996. Like Johnny Cash before him, Donovan was selected by producer Rick Rubin as a childhood hero he would like to restore to glory. With Rubin's encouragement and production, Donovan does make an impressive comeback with Sutras, which is reminiscent of his earliest records. Sutras abandons the colorful psychedelic pop of his best-known songs for the spare acoustic folk of his first records, and while Donovan's songwriting is a little uneven, the warmth of the performances is charming and welcoming, especially for long-time fans. ~ All Music Guide
