    Dances With Wolves -- 2ch. SACD
    The late great John Barry

    Pisses me off that I can't find 'Fire Dance' on myspace, nor the scene itself on youtube. That would make a killer theme to my homepage.

    Allman Brothers- "Eat a Peach" followed by Joe Sample-"Carmel"
    on vinyl and breaking in the new TT. I coveted Troy's VPI enough to warrant the purchase of a new VPI Scout (at a very reasonable price i might add) and am very pleased so far.

    Currently spinning is "Cure For Pain" by Morphine. I think I'm going to go with some mid 80's Red Hot Chili Peppers next.

    Rush-Exit Stage Left

    One of their better live compliations. Only complaint I have is that you can tell it's recorded from multiple sources. Why can't Rush just put out 1 full concertsinstead of parts of several. Just a mild rant.

    Buddy Guy & Junior Wells - Last Time Around: Live At Legends
    Silvertone, 1998


    The title says it all. Buddy's sidekick for decades passed away shortly after this live set at the club. There was magic afoot every time this duo took the stage and this album is a great example of it.

    Ken Saydak - Love Without Trust
    2001, Delmark DE-751



    I first caught Ken as part of Lonnie Brooks' backing group in the late 70's. His career since then has taken him to concert and festival stages on four continents, including tours and appearances in Israel, South Africa, France, and Switzerland. The list of artists who have enlisted his talents, both in the studio and on the road, include Johnny Winter, Otis Rush, Willie Kent, Lonnie Brooks, John Primer, Mighty Joe Young, Billy Boy Arnold, Sam Lay, Dave Specter, James Wheeler, Tad Robinson, Lurrie Bell, Johnny B. Moore, and Karen Carroll.

    All of his recordings, this being no exception, showcase his instantly recognizable vocal and piano styles as well as his insightful and engaging songwriting.

    I almost picked this up recently. Is this with a full band or more like Buddy Guy & Junior Wells-Alone and Acoustic? Which is just the two of them up on stage Buddy with an Acoustic and Junior with his Harmonica.

    It's an acoustic set. What really shines here is the blending of vocals.

    Blue, do you own Alone & Acoustic? Just wondering how they compare and if it would be worth it to have 2 similiar types of recordings.



    10,000 Maniacs- MTV Unplugged.



    When it was recorded, nobody knew that MTV Unplugged would be 10,000 Maniacs' last album with Natalie Merchant. As it stands, it's a quiet, gentle way for her to bow out, offering no new revelations but several solid versions of the group's signature songs (mainly concentrating on Our Time in Eden) and a cover of Patti Smith's "Because the Night." It's nothing new, but for fans it's a graceful way to say goodbye.

    This is one of my favorite Unplugged performances. Recording quality is top notch, lots of instruments and Natalie's voice is excellent. Vocals are right up front and well recorded, great demo for female vocals. It's such a laid back enjoyable performance. A must for all Natalie Merchant fans. The 10,000 Maniacs were never the same after she departed.

    I don't own, nor have I heard, "Alone & Acoustic". Worth it to have? You can't have too much Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, or cowbell. :p

    Journey - Captured

    Slightly above average 80's pop rock. Sure does bring back some memories though. A bit too slick and polished for my taste, but Neil Schon is in good form. Still enjoyable. Did I mention the memories!!

    AC/DC - Highway To Hell remaster

    Nothing like a little jaw jarring AC/DC to get you going in the morning. Just another trip down memory lane too. Damn these guys were good; hard driving minimalistic crunch rock. The re-master is just fantastic. Hard driving but not compressed, lots of breathing room. Good thump too. Great epitaph for Bon Scott



    When I bought this album in around 1980 I was just a freshman in high school. I remember my parents just shaking their heads when they saw the cover. Then when they heard it I'm sure they thought I was going to be a devil worshipper (LOL). It was a big contrast to all the Kiss memorabilia plastered on my bedroom walls............Ah the memories

    Oscar Peterson Trio and Orchestra - With Respect to Nat
    Limelight LS 86035, LP

    No one but Oscar could have successfully pulled-off this collection of covers that define the early part of Cole's career. The similarities in their vocal styling and piano are remarkable.

    Pick up a copy of Joe Sample- "Carmel"It's piano based and an easy step from what you're listening to now. Also, try Chet Baker- "Chet" if you like the Botti then check out one of the "old school" trumpet masters.

    Coco Montoya - Can't Look Back
    Alligator B000066NYI, 2002



    I enjoyed his on-the-edge guitar work with Albert Collins and John Mayall, but almost lost interest in his solo career after the 2000 release of "Suspicion". I recently got a chance to catch him live with Tommy Castro and realized what I'd been missing. This follow-up, and his last release to date, is (for me) the pick of the litter of his five solo albums since 1995. Solid blues/rock originals and tight covers of such tunes as Collins' "Same Old Thing". Good stuff.
