    Edgar Winter - Winter Blues



    Given the weather lately this one seemed appropriate.

    Edgar is the overlooked albino Winter blues brother IMO. He often played and recorded with his older brother, Johnny...but Johnny always was in the forefront. Edgar is an accomplished bluesman in his own right. It is ironic that his greatest fame came from a "crossover" album, They Only Come Out At Night by the Edgar Winter Group. Hits Like "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride" became rock standards in the early 70's...and still get considerable air time on classic rock radio even today.

    Winter Blues is well worth checking out. It is a live album recorded in 1999. His brother Johnny shows up on the album along with the horn section from his early band White Trash. He also brought along a few of his friends...Rick Derringer, Leon Russell, Dr. John and Eddie Money. They all make significant contributions to this album.

    If you like the Blues...or any of the artists on this album...see if you can find this one and give it a spin. You won't be disappointed IMO.

    Erin McKeowen - Hundreds of Lions



    Erin McKeown first gained attention as a folky singer/songwriter, albeit one who crafted tunes with considerable pop music charm. Her music has expanded over the years, becoming more inclusive of styles like bluegrass, blues, jazz, classic pop, swing, reggae, and light rock. Her last studio effort, Sing You Sinners, was a collection of cover tunes from the '30s and '40s, putting her distinctive, throaty alto to good use with inventive arrangements that combined all of her musical interests. This outing could be seen as an extension of that set, with arrangements that bring bossa nova, '60s Brit-pop, and the heartbreaking folk ballads that first inspired her. "Santa Cruz" is a pop tune that brings to mind the mid-'60s work of Bacharach/David, a tale of missed connections and love gone awry, but the jittery percussion, jarring electric guitar, and McKeown's insistent vocal add an element of emotional darkness. Sustained organ notes and a somber, clanging electric guitar accent the somber mood of "(Put the Fun Back in The) Funeral." It captures the hopeless feeling of depression without completely plunging you into the abyss. "You, Sailor" and "Seamless" hark back to McKeown's folk roots. "Sailor" sounds traditional, just voice and guitar, a poignant song of yearning that uses the sea as a metaphor for the distance between lovers; "Seamless" is almost a cappella, with McKeownstrumming sparse guitar chords to support her desolate vocal and a striking punch line -- "How can we know that apocalypse and bliss are truly seamless?" "All That Time You Missed" is brighter musically, if not lyrically, with its bossa beat making its tale of lovers struggling for connection sound like a gentle dance. The Farfisa piano and handclaps on "The Rascal" give it an early Merseybeat feel as McKeowndelivers a lively vocal that belies the song's message of anguish. McKeown's in fine voice throughout and the backing players add subtle polish to her finely constructed tunes. Her fluid vocals remain the centerpiece of the album, while her lyrics reveal the heart of a poet and the wisdom of a soul wise beyond her years.



    Sarah Harmer - You Were Here



    Sarah Harmer's first solo effort, You Were Here, doesn't allow a simple categorization of style or reveal a sweeping trend in progress. But it is certain that she is an artist choosing wisely from a great scope of colors. With a pleasing and misleading start, the rollicking opening track asserts its individuality with a Vaudevillian clarinet, keeping one foot in Kinks pop and one in some elusive species of country rock. The next track leaps into the present, utilizing rhythms that sound somewhat synthesized in the mode of David Gray. "The Hideout," having appeared also on a Starbucks coffeehouse compilation disc, has the feel of Neil Young circa Harvest, and becomes a powerful single with its heavy drum line, bold "fifths" chords, and strong chorus with a memorable hook. Moving on, the energy level quickly drops to a spare meditation, featuring vocal, guitar, subtle organ, and the dark psychology of the lyrics. This ebb and flow proves to be the experience throughout You Were Here. Songs may begin with a soft acoustic, then unfold assuredly toward their climax. Various instruments add character now and then, such as a muted trumpet or a harmonica, and the energy level can sway between a lullaby and full pop treatment with a definite destination. The music can also have a heavier edge, driven at times by a malcontent electric guitar. Throughout, the cello is a recurrent staple, as is Harmer's self-harmonized lead vocal. In conjunction with her sonorous, folky vibrato, the melodies are built of simplicity and sweetness, making it an easy album to latch onto. Produced by Harmer herself, along with Peter Prilesnik, You Were Here is keen to a number of musical influences. Her Canadian nationality notwithstanding, there is more than a whisper of Joni Mitchell or Ron Sexsmith in the music. Moments which might feel slow or meandering could likewise feel pensive, meditative, or gather interest from their potential to reveal something more. The lyrics are observational yet detached, and poetic without being arcane -- the album as a whole feels sincere, answering to a variety of moods and whims. It is a work of quality, from the songwriting clear to the production.

    Two female singer/songwriter's that everyone should seriously check out.

    Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced



    Probably one of the most significant and influential albums made in the 60s. And it still sounds good to this day.

    The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Live at Winterland



    After listening to "Are You Experienced", I still needed more Hendrix. As good as the studio albums are...Live Jimi Hendrix is the next level. The stage brought out a level of intensity that had to be "experienced". This album is one of many Live Hendrix albums that are out there. "Band of Gypsys", "Jimi Plays Monterey" and "Radio One" are all excellent, but Winterland is their equal IMO, but is not as prevalent as the others when his performances are talked about. That's too bad...as this a performance worth listening to.

    Absolutely. I have all the nights he played Winterland on bootleg and live Hendrix is on another level.

    Winterland (atleast on the Ryko label) has been out of print for years as it's Alan Douglas era stuff. Much of what Alan Douglas did with Hendrix's back catalog was/is questionable, but this does stand out as one of the better efforts. Of course all the Alan Douglas stuff has been OOP since Experience Hendrix took over the reigns, which is a good thing, IMO. But, then gems like this slip through the cracks. This cd was among the first cd's I bought back around 1986-87.

    This is one of the Rykodisc CDs. I purchased this in the late 80s early 90s. When I was looking for a photo to link, I was suprised to find how much this CD was selling for used ($40±). Mine is a near mint copy...it's not for sale...but it's good to know at least a few things I own are worth more now than when I bought them (unlike my 401K ).

    The Radio One title also on Ryko goes for even more. I have both titles also in near mint cond. I also have the Jimi Hendrix Concerts cd and you can see what it goes for here if new.

    http://www.amazon.com/Jimi-Hendrix-C...6988390&sr=1-1

    Another is called Essential Hendrix on Reprise (another Alan Douglas era cd)

    http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Jimi...6988506&sr=1-1

    Sadly at one point I had both of the former on LP at one time before cd's were even around.

    OOP Hendrix cd's can have some value to the right person

    I'll listen to track 18 on the Talking heads disc for the first time now. I never went past 16 LOL.

    I love these guys. Got several of their cd's, but they're impossible to get stateside. I've found them all on either Amazon international or ebay.uk.

    Kroke
    3 piece(now 4) group of nice Polish boys from Cracow, Tomas Kukurba on viola, whistle and howls, Tomasz Lato- standup bass, Jerzy Bawol on squeezebox.
    And on drums added a few years back, Tomasz Grochot.







    Gotta admit, I don't remember this track in this movie......
