    "Young, gifted and black"-Aretha Franklin On now ,just finished Dusty Springfield-"You don't have to say you love me" and before that
    Lena Horn-"Lena on the Blue side" The Aretha simply kicks ass of the bunch seriously dynamic recording and her vocals at her peak IMO.

    Benny Valerio and Texas Thunder - Surrounded By The Blues
    1997 Wolftrax Records, WT-1002



    Rockin', solid blues without a cover in the works. Ass kickin' horns, B3, slide and vocals! He cut his teeth and paid his dues playing with such notables as Jimmy Reed, Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, John Mayall, and Albert Collins. Sadly, we lost Benny earlier this year to cancer. RIP brother.

    Schwing....Miles Davis all evening "In a Silent Way" on now and "Sketches of Spain" on deck... I'm thinking "IaSW" is far better than i'd originally believed no real structure just a melange of grooves loosely kept together....doesn't sound like it but it does work.

    Getting my Beatles fix.

    Beatles - 1967-1970 (Blue Album)

    This is one quote that pretty much sums up the Beatles. I'm not what you call a fanatic for the Beatles, but you can't deny their impact on popular music.

    So much has been said and written about the Beatles -- and their story is so mythic in its sweep -- that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating clichés that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century. Moreover, they were among the few artists of any discipline that were simultaneously the best at what they did and the most popular at what they did. Relentlessly imaginative and experimental, the Beatles grabbed a hold of the international mass consciousness in 1964 and never let go for the next six years, always staying ahead of the pack in terms of creativity but never losing their ability to communicate their increasingly sophisticated ideas to a mass audience.

    Listening to Teddy Lee Hooker on the XM tuna. Yep, he's the son of John Lee, but a different blues artist all together. Excellent lyricist, vocalist, and arranger. Now, I have to find a source for some of his music. He apparently works out of the South Bay area. If any of you CA folks know where to grab a CD I'd appreciate it.

    Warren Zevon - The Wind



    This album isn't for everyone. It is for the fans of Warren Zevon. If you don't know the background many would listen to HIS vocals on this album and think "this guy sounds like death"...and you would be right. He was diagnosed with an incurable lung cancer before he started this album and he recorded it knowing it would be his last. There is something erie and powerful about a man facing death singing "Knocking On Heaven's Door". If you know his musical history you immdeiately recognize many of the greats who he helped throughout his careers joining him in tribute. You would swear you were listening to a 70's Jacksone Brown album when David Lindleys guitar solos start on "Numb As A Statue" and Joe Walsh's slide is immediately recognizable on "Rub Me Raw". Emmylou Harris' distincitve harmony is readily apparent on "Please Stay" as is Timothy B. Schmit on "She's Too Good For Me". Throw in a few more "guest vocalists" like Jackson Browne, T-Bone Burnett, Tom Petty, Tommy Shaw, Bruce Springsteen, John Waite, Don Henley, Dwight Yoakam as well as a host of great musicians, you have an album that is a composite of Zevon's musical influlences over the past 35 years or so. The album doesn't really focus on the fact that Zevon is dying, but the final cut "Keep Me In Your Heart For Awhile" is his good-bye...and very touching.

    This album wasn't made for money or for the charts but it is a musician doing what he loved....one last time....with the people who he influenced and who influenced him. If you are a fan of Warren Zevon you NEED to have this album. If not a fan....it is certainly worth a listen if for no other reason to hear the group of great musicians who were.

    Sara Evans - Real Fine Place



    99% of the folks on this forum would have absolutely no use for this CD (in fact I'm probably the 1%). That's OK. I'm a sucker for Southern women....and I like the music. I tend to stare at the album cover as I listen which enhances the "experience".

    I personally like Sara Evans. Though I sometimes tend to get her confused with Teri Clark when I hear them on the radio.

    Dummy by Portishead. Since I got my LSi9s I have been listening to almost nothing except trip-hop, music I had never gotten into before. It's like rediscovering music all over again.

    Maria Muldaur - S/T

    Most excellent, as it was new 33 years ago--before a young pianist named Mack Rebennak became "Dr. John". Also featuring Ry Cooder and Clarence White with rock solid drumming by Jim Keltner.

    Albert King - I Wanna Get Funky
    Stax 1974, CD



    Arguably his last great studio album, he does just what the title sets out to do. His tone is amazing with no sense of attack. It's like he has a bagpipe full of wildcat growl and is squeezing it out.

    The rendition of his "Crosscut Saw" on this album is solidly in the top 10 of my blues favorites. It begins with a Memphis soul vibe and a new backbeat that instantly grabs you. Half way through the jam he urges the band to "do it like we did back in 1965" and they seamlessly change the beat to that of the original recording (and every cover I've ever heard) for a few measures. Then he yells "I wanna go back to the top" and, without missing a beat he has your ass shaking again and your foot tapping smoothly back in the funk.

    As the man often said himself: "If the blues don't grab you, you got a hole in your soul." Grab this one for your collection and never look back.

    Staying funky with...

    Albert Collins - Cold Snap
    1986, Alligator ALCD4782



    One of Albert's most listenable albums. It really showcases his guitar and vocal stylings in an excellently produced, 9-cut session. Jimmy McGriff keeps the funk anchored with tastey B-3 runs and fills. Solid!

    1. Cash Talkin' (The Workingman's Blues)
    2. Bending Like A Willow Tree
    3. A Good Fool Is Hard To Find
    4. Lights Are On But Nobody's Home
    5. I Ain't Drunk
    6. Hooked On You
    7. Too Many Dirty Dishes
    8. Snatchin' It Back
    9. Fake I.D.

    Blues for a rainy morning.....

    Albert Collins - Don't Lose Your Cool
    1983, Alligator ALCD4730



    Hands down my favorite of Albert's four Alligator works. He grabs his Texas juke joint roots and blends them with the Kansas City blues sound he mastered in the mid-60's and West Coast funk.

    The SQ of this album is stellar and allows his unique guitar tuning and non-standard blues riffs to leap out at you. Abb Locke and Dino Spells weave tenor and alto sax wonderfully into these fine arrangements. Larry Burton's rhythm guitar work is the perfect compliment to the Ice Man's lead.

    1. Get to Gettin'
    2. My Mind Is Trying to Leave Me
    3. Broke
    4. Don't Lose Your Cool
    5. When a Guitar Plays the Blues
    6. ... But I Was Cool!
    7. Melt Down
    8. Ego Trip
    9. Quicksand
