  3. Recommendations for Record Stores in...

    Article is from 2016, but maybe some of the shops are still there:
  4. FWIW, I go into Philly pretty regularly and love it (more so than any comparably sized city in Texas). I don't know if it will/would help Rooster or Mrs. Rooster with their issues, but it's a fascinating place.

  6. Love Luna! I just listened to "Lunafied" yesterday.

    I just got a package sent from a musician in Austin that got to southern New Jersey in 3 business days, by media mail. Ordered on Thursday, June 30th. Arrived here today, July 5th, with a holiday weekend in the middle.

  11. What do you think about this one? I just purchased the deluxe digital version of the album (the cd will follow eventually), but haven't given it a spin yet. According to SW and the band, the album has hit #1 in the U.K.
  12. *** Cecil Taylor ***

    I'm a relative newbie with respect to Cecil Taylor. In fact I presently own only Love for Sale and Conquistador. I'd like to get a little more into Taylor, but after Conquistador I don't know if I'm ready for the deep-end just yet. I'd like to ease into this music a little more. Any recommendations? Also, I happened to notice that although Dennis Charles is listed as the drummer on LFS, the liner notes mention Rudy Collins. Is this correct, or a mistake on William Thompson's part? Finally , I noticed an album called Coltrane Time, but haven't determined if that's his date or Trane's. How is that one? Believe it's their only collaboration, and sounds intriguing, though I guess it's pretty early - relatively speaking - in both of their careers.
  13. RIP, Alen White.

    He also drummed on Harrison's "All Things Must Pass album", including the "My Sweet Lord" single. Ringo played tambourine on that track, according to White. He was a solid drummer for Yes, not a virtuoso like Bill Bruford. But he fit their music well, I think. Here's a version of Starship Trooper from their Symphonic tour in 2001.

  15. Paul Carrack is great! Oh wait, you meant Paul Simon! You can call him Al. Oh you meant Paul Westerberg, he rocks. Maybe Paul Anka, he's old school cool.
  16. Dan, the World Health Organization believes masks suppress the spread of Covid. So does the Mayo Clinic. As does Johns Hopkins. So does the CDC. I can go on but I hope you get the point. Legitimate disease/virologists/medical/health organizations all seem to believe masks suppress the spread of COVID, which logically means that fewer lives would be resultingly lost. I believe them. You apparently don't (?).,as%20effective%20as%20possible. If you don't believe in any group of scientist/medical professionals (all of whom have nothing to gain by lying about this), I'm not sure how to respond further. Or what you're actually disagreeing with.

  18. Three people I personally knew died from COVID - my unvaccinated uncle, a young healthy female coworker who elected not to get vaccinated (she was also the mother of three young children) who sat 3 desks away from mine, and an admin assistant's father (don't know his vax status). You'll never convince me COVID was as trivial as many tried to make it out to be. I believe that at least 2 of the 3 would still be alive today had they chosen to get vaccinated. I also still have anger that the previous President trivialized masks during the onset of this pandemic. I am convinced at least 150-200K in the U.S. lost their lives unnecessarily because of that dismissal, and the resulting early spread of the virus before vaccines were available. Any attempt to discuss this calmly (with factual information) with right-wingers on FB or elsewhere usually results in a "laughing face" emoji in response to any attempt at a discussion. Instead of responding with any educated response. That is also maddening that people won't take the time to actually educate themselves.

  21. My Friend Hot Ptah has passed.

    Rest in Peace, Ptah. I too enjoyed your posts and presence here over the past 16 years.
  22. Hoping they release this on cd. I see there's a deluxe vinyl edition but that's too rich for my blood.
  23. Since you're asking, for many others, this is the controversial cover:
  24. Woodstock 50th Anniversary Releases

    Don't figure this was worth its own thread, but I was today years old when I discovered that Woodstock included the following jazz artists: * Ralph Towner and Glen Moore were in Tim Hardin's band * Paul Motian played with Arlo Guthrie * David Sanborn and Phillip Wilson played with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band (by coincidence I was listening to Wilson on the AEC Nessa box just a couple of days ago) Which got me to thinking which Woodstock artists I've seen live, and it's a short list. * Tommy Shannon (who played with Johnny Winter) * Melanie * Joe Cocker * Neil Young

    Rest in Peace, Ian McDonald.
