back in the day???? it only came out last year!:p
This man likes his job: writing, playing and singing New Orleans flavored blues.
We had a chance to see him live again a week ago at our favorite small venue and consider him one of the top 10 live acts ever for us.
My only knock of this album is the same for every one of his I've heard. It does not capture the marvelous power and dynamics of his very unique voice.
When I look in your Eyes
Martin Scorsese Presents: Jimi Hendrix
From Scorsese's "Blues" mini series. Has some good tracks on it, but it pales in comparison to the Hendrix "Blues" album. Sound quality is consistently good, however. For the Hendrix collector rather then someone just getting into him.
Edit:Last night, running out of interest during the third side, I looked at the fourth side and decided to call it an evening. Listened to side 4 today and was more impressed. Midnight Lightning, the last track of side 4, is Jimi on vocals and guitar with no accompaniment. Great stuff.
Hotel Costes tonight!
Toots and The Maytals
Early Jimi Hendrix- Baron lp 105
A live recording of Jimi playing with Curtis Knight in 1965 , recorded at George's Club 20 in Hackensack, NJ. Varying, but generally pretty bad, recording of some of the show stoppers he played when he was still a sideman. It's a shame the recordings especially bad on Driving South, I'm a Man, and ....Killing Floor, when he's really ripping it up.
Death From Above 1979-You're A Woman, I'm A Machine..
Sonny Rollins Under the Bridge
Heart Like a Wheel- Linda Rondstat
She has one of the most beautiful voices. First side is slower, sadder ballads, well done and delicate. Second side picks up the pace, highlights of the album for me are on it; the sweetest version of the Lowell George song "Willin" you'll ever hear as well as a Hank Williams song called "I Can't Help It If I'm Still In Love WIth You" with Emmy Lou Harris. It's a great recording, even the regular Capitol version I have. I'd love to hear the 220g version.
Carlos Santana - Havana Moon
A most excellent collaboration album with some very nice blues cuts - somewhat of a rarity for Carlos.
1975 Grammophon Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture, Boston Pops Orchestra, Arthur Fiedler, in vinyl.
20th Century Masters - The Best of Blues, The Christmas Collection
My Morning Jacket (Crackhead) - Okonokos DVD in 5.1.
Frank Zappa, Strictly Commercial.
I got this from the daughter’s boyfriend on xmas day. He has also helped me ship/receive three pairs of skidded speakers. He likes old rock music. Using reverse Psychology, I keep telling my daughter to dump him…..;):D
Amused To Death
They did a wonderful job of recording this album. I am listening to it on my custom monitors. When I first started playing it when the dog barks I heard it coming from the right wall almost ninety degrees from me. The way they recorded this album is really cool. Its like they sent all the cancellation signals to the proper speakers to have an SDA/holography effect. Very nice. Very nice indeed.
Alison Krauss and Union Station Live
Eagles Farewell Tour I. My two 20'ish years of age boys are here for the holidays and are pretty much blown away listening on the 2.3's.
Billy Squier Don't say no
Forgot what a killer cd this is....
The Wreck of Edmund Fitzgerald
A very sad true story.
Listening to a CD of a band that hasn't played in my rig in a while. I must have misplaced the CD somewhere and ran across it at Manifest last night. Big Head Todd and the Monsters, "Sister Sweetly". Good tunes.
I will be seeing them live at a buddies venue in Charlotte on the 25th. It will be nice to hear his venue's sound system and see them perform. :D
Derek and the Dominos: Bell Bottom Blues. Not the best SDA music but it's good tunes.
