    Avril Lavigne - Under My Skin



    Yeah..I know...old guy listening to a 19 year old quasi-grunge-teeny-pop-rock chick. Well it was only .89 at the used CD store so I figured WTH. I've heard her first album (this is her second). She trys to soften up a little from the hard edge of the first album. It IS the typical teenage girl angst music where the typical teenage girl listener will analyse each word and phrase in a song and apply it to her angst ridden existance. If you ignore the words the music is ok with a couple of decent tracks. Michelle Branch is still the better choice of this genre.

    Chicago - 17 (vinyl)



    Yes...that's right...the 17th album put out by these guys. (their 30th came out this year). Their biggest seller ever. Peter Cetera's last album with the group. A couple of their biggest hits with "Hard Habit to Break" and "You're the Inspiration". You recognize the songs....and the Chicago "sound" but.....The horns....they are still there...sort of. What you do notice are the drum machines and synthesiers, and the horns are in the background (way back). This is sonically a good LP. Tight and well recorded. Musically it is too pop, too slick, too many ballads (the 80's power ballads were big at the time) for my taste. It's not the raw, edgy horn driven stuff in Chicago Transit Authority (album #1) or Chicago II or even Chicago V. It's a good listen...but it made me want to go back and listen to the early stuff....which I will.

    Although my Jolida isn`t a top fueler (yet !) like my good friend Jesse`s
    it sounds good with the ol amprex`s on the Dodd set-up !

    Roy Buchanan - Second Album
    Polydor 1972, LP

    I could listen to his cover of "After Hours" all night and day. Purchased the year of release, this one still makes me smile.

    Very nice work from the former Double Trouble (SRV) guys. Thank's for the recommendation Tour.


    U2 - The Joshua Tree



    Their best IMO. Many prefer Achtung Baby, but I like this one better. There's something about Adam Clayton's bass line on "With Or Without You" that just sort of grabs you. The production is good but the SQ is just ok on this 1990 CD.

    Was given Robert Cray's "Shame + a Sin" and I'm grooving. "1040 Blues" and "I Shiver" cook. Pretty well recorded too!

    Anyone recommend some of his other albums?

    Randall Bramblett - That Other Mile/Light of the Night
    Last House Records, CD

    Some of RB's earliest recorded works (1975/76). He already had his distinctive style. Nice collection with both albums remastered.

    You're welcome.... It's a shame that the group imploded after one release.

    saw arc angels in concert when that album came out. was lucky enough to win some tickets from the local radio station. only heard the song the were pushing at the time. something 'angel'? great show! cool to see how doyle 3 strings his guitar like albert king! double trouble were solid. actually met them outside the back of the place. cool guys. charlie sexton and doyle3 were great at trading guitar and vocal lines. now doyle3 plays with clapton and sometimes roger waters. i hear he's got a bit full of himself. sexton plays with and records with dylan. what about double troube? last i saw them they were playing with buddy guy in '04. i saw buddy a few weeks ago. i'm still talking about it! arc angels is in my top 100 albums;)

    Little Feat - Down On the Farm
    1979, Warner Brothers - HS3345, LP

    Rockin' with my socks off today to some great old vinyl from the vault. The new Bluenote table and Dynavector cartridge is breathing all the life back into these personal treasures.

    Lowell George died during production of this one, and it remains my favorite.

    Not a bad choice in their first eight LP's, but I gotta go with "Feats Don't Fail Me Now"...

    On an even lighter note....
    Buzzy Linhart - The Time to Live is Now

    Unless you lived in NYC or NE Ohio, chances are you don't know Buzzy. However, odds are you know some of his work as he wrote "Friends" (a hit for Bette Midler) and "The Love's Still Growing" (a huge hit for Carly Simon).

    I saw him twice during my college days in Cleveland, OH (once at the legendary "Smilin' Dog Saloon"). Great showman... and the only rocker I know of that played the vibraphones. To say Buzzy was "Nuckin' Futz", was putting it mildly.

    That is an awesome LP. . . as a matter of fact most every recording I've heard from the Filmore East was really great.

    ... Humble Pie - Performance: Rockin' the Filmore immediately sprang to mind,

    I AMG's "fillmore" ( http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll ) and was surpised by a couple things:
    1. The Allmann Bro's is out on SACD.
    2. The sheer number of Fillmore, east and west, releases.... 50+
    3. There are recent Fillmore releases, e.g., Big Head Todd, Lucinda Williams.

    I did not realize the Fillmore West was back in business.
