    Randall Bramblett-"No more Mr. Lucky" and James Taylor-"Greatest Hits" through the Jolida CDP, Conrad J pre, and the newly aquired Dynaco
    Stereo 70 tube amp (Thanks Russ). Fun little amp with seriously great sound running through the (yeah not Polks) KLH17's.(Doing the "period" sound system, less the Jolida of course, gonna look for a period LP player soon) Far from a reference system but makes me "tingly" where it counts.

    Southern Rock and Roll tonight! The cover art is very nice. The music is better.

    .38 Special - Wild Eyed Southern Boys (vinyl)

    Side one is kick-ass with "Hold On Loosely", "Wild Eyed Southen Boys" and "Fantasy Girl". Rest is pretty good too.



    Wet Willie - The Wetter the Better (vinyl)

    An under-appreicated Southern Rock band.

    Freddy Jones Band - North Ave. Wakeup Call

    FJB is probably one of the greatest examples of a stellar band that never got a break. Thier albums are fantastic and the shows were AWESOME.

    If you can find one of thier CD's in a used bin, pick it up!

    Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive! [LIVE]



    Double LP.

    It has been 25+ years since this LP has been out of the sleeves. I had forgotten how good of a live album it is. It was the best selling live album of it's time (and may still be). I sorta had it in the back of my mind that it was more teenybopper fluff than rock (big hair teen idol and all). I WAS MISTAKEN! 30 years after the fact the music still holds up well. The ex Humble Pie guitarist can flat out rock. He was definitely in his element in concert. " Do You Feel Like We Do?" is the last cut on the album and is probably best known for his use of the "voicebox" but it really displays his guitar playing talent. "Frampton Comes Alive" will certainly get played again before another 25 years rolls around.

    PS: I understand there was an A&M remastered CD iissued in 99 that is excellent and also a MFSL gold disc that is even better.

    Government Mule-Deepest End.




    Very enjoybale semi prog/jam rock. If you enjoy great musicianship this a great cd to kick back and listen to. Extended jams that just flat out groove. At times it's chill inducing how the jams are played.

    Recorded and filmed during the 2003 Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans, the show features the most astonishing array of guest bassists yet, and so many other guests the date was like a festival unto itself. Among the bassists preset for a night of music that began at 10:10 p.m. and ended at 3:35 a.m. were Jack Casady, Les Claypool, Roger Glover, Will Lee, Jason Newsted, Rob Wasserman, Victor Wooten, George Porter, Jr., Conrad Lozano, and a half-dozen others. Other musicians participating in the festivities -- many of whom who had gigs in the Crescent City at the same time -- include David Hidalgo, Bernie Worrell, Fred Wesley, Karl Denson, Sonny Landreth, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band horns, Béla Fleck, and Ivan Neville.

    The sound is warm and the mix very fluid, very live. The performance is completely inspired and jaw-droppingly sophisticated despite its spontaneity. There are 20 tracks over the pair of CDs, accounting for two hours and 34 minutes total playing time, and the DVD features 20 more and lasts over three hours.


    Great Sunday morning listening

    Evanescence-Anywhere But Home



    Switching gears today. This is as aggressive as the Gov't Mule was laid back. Crunching guitars, slamming bass line, and the Goth tinged voice of Amy Lee; who makes Evanescence unique. Sure they are little bit, Tool, Linkin' Park meets Tori Amos, but that's what I like about them. The rythms are smart and the drumming is above average......and did I mention Amy Lee's vocals. Nice bit of contrast to many of the songs by using swelling keyboards to good effect. Slightly haunting, but the crunchy guitars are awesome. Recorded pretty well also.

    Home also reasserts Amy Lee's position at Evanescence's center. Throughout the band's rise, there was the drama -- co-founder Ben Moody's contentious departure, the are-they-or-aren't-they Christian rock debates -- but there was always the singular force of Lee, whose powerful vocals, strident public persona, and striking fashion sense broke down the doors of the alternative metal boys club. Appropriately, Lee is the star of Anywhere but Home. Her voice has an impressively raw quality live, and her banter with the fawning Parisian crowd is always engaging. The mix also favors her (as well as the prominent use of keys/synthesizers), which unfortunately lessens the effect of John LeCompt and Terry Balsamo's guitars and Rocky Gray's impressive drumming. Still, "Going Under" surges nicely into its anthemic chorus, and when the guitars do show up (like on "Everybody's Fool"), Lee matches their power easily. She takes a softer approach for the arch piano ballad "My Immortal," which becomes a singalong moment for 5,000 souls, and that song leads nicely into an extended vocal intro for the breakthrough hit (and Home standout) "Bring Me to Life." (Evanescence's cover of Korn's "Thoughtless" will be another fan highlight.) The album closes, as does Fallen, with the swirling, vaguely Eastern-tinged metal melodies of "Whisper," and Lee's throaty vocal endures even as the synths and processed choir effects threaten to engulf her.

    Forgot how enjoyable this is, especially when the mood fits.

    I just popped in Fleatwood Mac. It's hot here in KC and the Bomb Shelter is a great refuge on a Sunday afternoon.

    Refuge from the heat seems to be the phrase of the day around the middle section of the country. Look out east, it's coming. I played 18 holes of golf yesterday it was over 90 w/ a heat index close to 100 and today it's even hotter. I'm enjoying the day in air condtioned comfort just rediscovering some dusty recordings.

    Getting ready to do BD dinner for my bro at our parents place. Ice cold Mexican beer varieties with fresh limes. Grilled Grouper with fresh mexican style salsa my Mom made and much more........I can taste that Negra Modelo, Tecate and/or Dos Equis in frosted mug. *wipes drool off keyboard* :p

    Getting my INXS on

    INXS-Welcome to Wherever You Are




    The last of the best. Mostly experimental as they are trying to find an audience as there sound hadn't changed much since the beginning, but the music scene had. As much as I like the early stuff and of course Kick. This is easily the most enjoyable and overlooked album they put out. They are stretching and experimenting on this one. Once again it proves JD can't even come close to filling Hutchence's shoes. This has been in the bargain bin for years, I bought it for $2.99 several years ago. What a bargain!

    agreed 100% growing up in the 70's... this was THE album to listen to. Yes there were other good albums out.. but they weren't live and did't offer the same clear fidelity that this one did. I just picked it up on DVD-audio.

    It's sweet. one of the top ten best albums of all time for sure. ;)

    The Raveonettes

    Chain Gang of Love

    This is a Danish duo that borrows heavily from early Motown, the infamous Specter Wall of Sound, '50's themes such as hot rods, riding with the pack, juvenile delinquency, etc.

    All with enough feedback and distortion to choke a mule.

    The Ramones could have easily headed in this direction....

    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Just rolled in from the Mayall gig. DYN-O-MITE evening of some of the best blues to be had. John signed the "Beano" album cover for me - right over Clapton's face (which gives me great joy.) :D

    At 73, John shows no sign of slowing down. It just gets better and better. Buddy opened the show with an ass bumpin' cover of "Shakey Ground". They're headed back to the studio next week to continue work on a Freddie King tribute album, due to release early '07. Can't wait!

    Talking this is fantastic

    I'm in a small town in Ohio and new to this sight. I can't believe I've found a group that still plays vinyl, I'm an outcast here because of my oldschool ways. I'm listening to a band called the Planet P project, album title: Pink World, Anyone ever heard of it? It's fantastic through a pair of sda srs 2's:D
