    Did some running around and on a Sunday morning that means H-town's NPR Blues line-up... Roadhouse, Nuri Nuri (The Big Boss-man of the Blues) and others....

    Nuri is a local fav. Really cool to hear a guy with a very heavy, east Indian accent go on and on about Big Joe Turner, Howlin' Wolf, etc...

    Just picked the CD up up at a neighborhood garage sale... Not bad for $2...

    Know how sometimes a cover catches your eye and won't let go, so you have to buy the album? But you've never heard of the group in your life, so you're not sure why you have to buy it? Well, I'm glad this one caught mine at the above sale:
    Soulhat - Good to Be Gone.

    Not all golden, but bats about 0.800... Borderline vocals (but you like them), quirkly lyrics, fine-ass guitar... Feels like it was recorded "live" in the studio, rather than piecemeal.

    1974- Todd Rundgren- "Todd" Todd at the apex as "guitar hero" excellent "gel out" album. "Number 1 Lowest Common Denominator" and "The Last Ride" contain some absolutely scorching guitar solos. Not the LP/CD to try as an intro to his music but one to have soon after.

    Mike, I've only got 6 or so, just to balance you out...

    I've been all over today... Duane Allman, Junior Brown, but the best stops of the day have been:

    Steve Miller - Sailor
    First off I have to say that this LP is an acquired taste. This ain't no Joker. This is the old, Steve from back when Boz Scaggs was his #1 sideman. This is the Bluesy, psychadelic Steve. Some of this is just abnormal stuff. Some of it is just brilliant stuff. But from the opening fog horns of "Song for Our Ancestors", it's all in a context that I think works. And then of course there's the quintessential Steve Miller track, "Living in the U.S.A."...
    "Somebody get me a cheeseburger..."

    Robert Palmer - Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley
    This, Palmer's debut LP, is a guaranteed good... no, make that... great stop in any daily musical journey. First half of the CD (LP side 1) is always high on my "Best Album-side" list. If you've not heard Robert P. before he was "adicted to love", then you have not heard Robert P.

    And the NOW PLAYING...

    Bruce Hornsby - Hot House
    The "That's Just the Way It Is" guy completes his move from rock to jazz with this '95 release. Really nice, energetic set with a strong backing band and plenty of guests dropping in here and there, e.g., Bella Fleck, Chaka Khan. It was my main "office inspiration" music near the end of my working days... right at the end nothing could inspire me. Anyway it got packed away in the move bye-bye, and was just happened across.

    More later,
    Tour...

    That was my first Steve Miller...before The Joker. It's still down in my stack of vinyl somewhere (along with The Joker and Book of Dreams). And yes.... "Living in the USA" IS the quintessential Steve Miller track.

    ^ Word...

    Starting the day with some of the lightest heavy stuff (or is it heavy light stuff?) around...

    Bela Fleck & The Flecktones - Flight of the Cosmic Hippo
    Owned this long before I discovered it when it was mentioned in an old, "great bass tracks" thread here. The title cut has outstanding deep bass, it's the "heavy" part. As for the rest, hey, it's Bela...

    Ike Turner - Blues Roots
    1972, UAS-5576 Reel to Reel

    Turner doing Chuck Willis, Lloyd Price and Willie Dixon covers mixed with his own instrumentals (piano and guitar.) Really more R&B than blues, but an interesting listen.

    On cd tonight (only 'cause i can't find it on vinyl)-David Gilmour- "S/T"
    closer to the Floyd sound (guitar wise) of the mid to late '70's than his other solo effort. A good one to add to the collection if you don't already own it.

    Reaching back again for a Classic from the 80's synthpop scene. Damn, the parties I went to where this was playing.

    YAZ- Upstairs At Eric's AKA-Yazoo.

    A british duo of Vince Clark from Depeche Mode and Allison Moyet (Alf as she is affectionally known). If you only own 1 piece of music from this wide varying genere this is it. Vince Clarks mastery of the syth and Alf's unusual bluesy vocals make this a solid and extremely infectious upbeat cd that sounds fresher today than when it came out. This was well ahead of its time. When groups like The Smiths, The Cure and to some extent early Depeche Mode were focusing on darker moods, lyrics and melodies, Yaz had a lot more energy and, despite only 2 performers, a bit more complexity. I'm still amazed how well most of the songs still hold up today, 24 years later. Allison Moyet has a very unique voice and this is worth seeking out.

    Freshly cleaned vinyl- "Avalon" -Roxy Music great demo album regardless of format. I've got it on SACD and find it just as good either way.

    ^One of their best to be sure... No stand out track like many of their uneven, earlier ones, but so solid...

    Sunday morning, so it's XM Pops until noon or so. Really outstanding set this weekend including Falla's Nights in the Garden of Spain... a beautiful piece...

    a pink floyd bootleg from 4/8/75. right now hearing 'shine on', the suite from side 2. sda's treat bootlegs pretty well, i think. car stereo seems the best, though, for some reason.

    Vinyl evening
    Dire Straits- "S/T" sublime "THE" overlooked D.S.'s album these days
    Pete Townshend- "White City" a great sounding LP one for the vinyl group to look out for.
    Dire Straits- "Brothers in Arms" I don't believe the last four songs could sound bad in any format.
