    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.
    You hit the nail right on the head brother!!!! My first thought when I saw the Allman Bros Live at the Filmore was Humble Pie; Neil Young and Crazy Horse Live at the Filmore East. Peter Frampton really rocked on that LP. I wonder with all these re-releases coming out if any company would consider putting together a set of the Filmore East & Filmore West performances. How about Miles Davis, The Moody Blues, John Mayall, Joe Cocker all live at the Filmore East the list goes on and on. I remember when they closed the Filmores I was young and bummed out.

    Shea Seger-May Street Project



    Though she does not look to be much older than the overwhelming (and underwhelming) horde of pop princesses in 2001, Shea Seger writes and performs with a much more mature grasp of pop history and musical technology. Taking a handful of styles and influences, Seger makes a powerful musical fist in which tight drumheads and technical tools warp and weave with contemporary and classic passages in a varied baker's dozen of melodies. The easily remixable club pop of "Clutch" comes across as Olivia Newton-John singing David Bowie. "Wasting the Rain" continues the Ziggy Stardust vibe with a "Sound + Vision" lyrical lick. "I Can't Lie" mixes Bowie, Blondie, Bonnie Raitt, and Janis Joplin in a down-home, hand-clappin' porch rocker which reveals the homey imperfections of the song's professed "perfect world." While "Walk on Rainbows" is a thin singer/songwriter poem reminiscent of Ellis Paul or Patty Griffin, while "Twisted" rips and screams with the full fury of Alanis Morissette. "Shatterwall" has sampled voices of old people reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel, "Blind Situation" slinks along like a Talking Head between interruptive rap breaks, and the title source track takes more than a little from Bob Seger. Interludes such as the redundant (and greatly unnecessary) breakbeat loop "Rooftop Animals" and guest spots by Pharrell Williams (the Neptunes) and a Paul Young/Ray Davies-esque Ron Sexsmith further complicate the task of defining Seger's sound, but each part of this Project makes for quite a tuneful work of craft.

    Great stuff!!

    Smooth jazz, blues, and a funked-up cover of "Tequila" on mint vinyl. Most excellent!

    Duets. Rob Wasserman and his string bass in a collaborative project with various artists. My fav is track 9, string bass with Stephane Grappelli on violin with a moving rendition of Over The Rainbow. Stardust with Aaron Neville brings back some memories fom the late 60's for me.

    James Taylor - Gorilla
    1985, Warner Brothers - BS 2866, LP

    First class arrangements and production, start to finish. "Angry Blues", with Lowell George and Valerie Carter in supporting vocalist roles, is a true classic.

    Last night was "Best Of/Greatest Hits SACD Night"

    The recording/mastering of each of these SACDs is excellent.

    Carpenters - Carpenters: Singles 1969-1981



    Whether you liked the music or not, Karen Carpenter had a hell of a voice. Just another tragic story of an extremely tallented performer.

    The Police - Every Breath You Take - The Classics



    "Message In A Bottle" is great on this SACD. There are some cut's like "Synchronicity" that should be on this "hits" album, but I guess it was left off since it didn't get a lot of airplay. Thats ok, since I have that album on SACD, redbook and LP.

    The Kinks - Come Dancing with the Kinks, The Best of the Kinks 1977-1986



    Not their early work, but it is still good stuff. "LOLA" (live) and "Superman" (disco cut) and "You Really Got Me" (live) make this a very interesting album.

    Donavon Frankenreiter's new LP Move by Yourself

    Definitely a big departure from his first CD. Much funkier and very similar to Jamiraquai.

    Van Morrison - Pay the Devil
    2006, Lost Highway - 180g vinyl LP

    I'm not much for country music, but the Belfast Cowboy has more tricks up his sleeve than blue-eyed soul ballads. He nails an array of country classics with this new offering. I can just hear Paula Abdul now: "Van, you took 'Your Cheatin' Heart' and made it your own." Highly enjoyable and very well produced.

    Kenny Burrell - Midnight Blue
    Blue Note - ABNC 4123S, 200g LP

    Burrell and a great band including Stanley Turrentine on tenor sax, Bill English on drums, Ray Barretto on conga and Major Holley Jr. on bass. Superb!

    Gerry Rafferty - City to City
    1978, United Artists - UA-LA840-G, LP

    Spinning some oldies but goodies. This is one of the finest rock albums from the 70's in my book. Very innovative arrangements, tight, and excellent production.

    Next up: Rafferty's original group, Spooky Tooth, with "You Broke My Heart, So I Busted Your Jaw."

    Great minds must think alike....Nothing on the tube other than Big Break on the golf channel... So I dug into the stack and came up with Spooky Tooth (same LP) and one of my all-time favorite LPs

    Emerson Lake & Palmer - Emerson Lake & Palmer



    It is one of the best progressive rock albums ever recorded. ELP, Yes and Alan Parsons were at the cutting edge of the genre and each have their watermark album. ELPs first was their best IMO. This LP is absolutely worn out and is almost beyond listenable (one of the few in my collection of almost 40 years in this condition - it's been played a few times) . It will have to be replaced with either another LP or the remastered CD. Decisions, decisions....this would be a great SACD candidate (yeah, I know, it's on DVD-A, but I don't do that)....maybe....please!

    Decemberists - The Tain & 5 Songs on LP (2 EP's on one album)


    For those of you unfamiliar with the Decemberists, please take the time to check them out. They are unlike anything else I have ever heard. All 4 of their albums are great. Extreme die hard fans may feel their newest album The Crane Wife is over produced, but personally I love it. Also if you get the chance to see them live they are one of the most bang for the buck bands you will find, and they are also one of the most entertaining bands I've ever seen.

    Happy Listening!!!!

    Nice, nice, very nice
    So many people in the same device :D

    I have the ELP album here as well. Guess I should round it up and see what condition it's in. Keith's early B-3 work is off the charts innovative.
