Just got a new phone which sounds much clearer on ringtones, so I got...

Re: Hear this - for free

go to http://www.daptonerecords.com click on "jukebox" and download the free sampler, Binky Griptite's Ghetto Funk Power Hour. If you love 60s and early 70s soul, it's essential. I got a copy free with Sharon Jones & The DapKings newest. I hate samplers, usually I scan them once and du...

Re: This Year's Model: Deluxe Edition to be released March 4

well, keep in mind that 100k number is for the Rhino reissue, not the 2cd Deluxe editon. I'd like to know the sales number of the Universal Deluxe. Because I imagine quite a few fans replaced they Rykos with the Rhinos, plus the casual fans who buy it. But not that many would rebuy another deluxe ve...

Re: This Year's Model: Deluxe Edition to be released March 4

After buying the columbia CDs, then the Rykos, then the Rhinos, I had no problem stealing a copy off the internet of the newest MAIT reissue, and I'll have no problem doing the same with TYM. TYM isn't even including any new non-live tracks, so this is pretty ineesential for me. I just feel EC is al...

I'm not a big classic rock fan, but Little Wing. Wow, Hendrix does in two and a half minutes everything you could need. I admire SRV but it seems that people who cover it try playing these 20 minute versions draining all possible combinations out of it. Give me Jimi who just nails it. A throw away s...

okkervil river's the stage names is really good, though for an introduction to them, black sheep boys is amazing. so many layers to their songs and lyrics I still unravel more from them. easy second place goes to the Apples In Stereo - they wree off my map for a while, and I expected so little, but ...

Interesting topic. Keep in mind that blues tradition meant borrowing from others, putting your spin on it. Probably everything on that Roots of Rock thing was borrowed from something else before it. Zeppelin like Clapton came from the blues tradition, and made it their own. Take When The Levee Break...

She looks like the girl-next-door, but she actually is the opposite. So why does this matter? Does it matter if an artist was born with a silver spoon in their mouth?

Let me give a different opinion. I like a few guilty pleasures now and then. I like cheesy 60s pop like I do cheesy 80s pop, and every now and then some songs come around that are like that which I am complteely embarrassed I love. Your Woman, Love Fool, Hey Ya, Crazy. Last year I heard a little buz...

Seeing him on Memorial Day in Houston. He cancelled day of the show last time. I saw him in 91 and 93, looking forward to this, plus my wife doesn't quite get Moz yet. Should be fun to see it through her eyes, especially the people watching.

So, he still only plays 75-80 minutes, right?

Been a long time since I visited this board, missed everyone!! Anyway, just found out about this batch of reissues, and if there are any new unreleased songs, I'm gonna steal them frmo Oink. I love EC, but any new tracks would be crass.
