In the late-80’s my woman and I moved into a nice building one block off Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks (the street upon which one could indeed see vampires---Goth high school kids---walking west, as reported by Tom Petty in "Free Falling"). The ap... 
New In 2024
  Available now is a new one from Richard Thompson. In July it's a live album from Steve Earle.    
Bob Weir: "George Jones is my favorite musician."
  Dave Edmunds duetting with Country music royalty in the form of Carlene Carter. This song is found on Carlene’s Musical Shapes album, which was produced by Dave’s partner in the great band Rockpile. If I remember correctly Carlene and Nick were... 
RIP. Johnny Barbata
  @soix is correct, Skip Spence was The Airplane’s drummer on their first album. He took off for Mexico with a coupla chicks without telling the group, and was mia for a few scheduled shows. They fired him, and he ended up playing rhythm guitar a... 
Those rare albums that are great on first listen.
  The Shaggs. 😉    
Tube Amp recommendation for Thiel CS1.6 under $2k
  For low impedance loudspeakers there is only one tube power amp I would suggest: the Music Reference RM-200 Mk.2. The amp was designed specifically for low impedance loads, a job at which it excels. Do a Google search and read all about it. Rev... 
RIP. Johnny Barbata
  Oh man, Johnny was fantastic! Even Buddy Rich thought so. His technical playing is just subtle enough to pass unnoticed, but not by drummers. Give a new listen to his playing on The Turtles’ "Happy Together", "Elenore" and "She’d Rather Be Wit...

  @hifiguy42: Love Wayne Hancock! An old bandmate of mine (Paul Skelton) plays guitar on Wayne’s debut album, Thunderstorms And Neon Signs. Wayne made his appearance during the CD era (1995), but a couple of his albums are available on LP for you... 
Have a reflective Memorial Day.
  One of my two sisters served in the Navy, and won’t let me forget it. Just kidding. 😉 She didn’t join until 1976, so had no concern about being sent to Vietnam. Her boyfriend had joined back in 1968, and was of course sent there. He wasn’t the...

  @yogiboy: I have two copies of The Everly Brothers Songs Our Daddy Taught Us album on LP, but not an original. I have yet to find one of those, but have it in Rhino Records and Ace Records (UK) pressings. I’m an Everlly Brothers fanatic, with ...

  Sure @stringreen, though I think of him as Mr. DeMent. 😊    
Bob Weir: "George Jones is my favorite musician."
  More of the Charlie Starr interview with Otis Gibbs. Amongst other topics, Charlie talks about the Starday Records era of George Jones. While on Starday, George was much more a Honky Tonk singer, recording "White Lightnin'"and "Why Baby Why". Y... 
Bob Weir: "George Jones is my favorite musician."
  I can understand that @stuartk. I'll bet it's because of the production by Billy Sherrill: too syrupy, with all those massed strings. George's earlier stuff, when he was on Starday Records, isn't like that. George even did some Rockabilly, unde...
