The Black Crowes "Before The Frost..Until The Freeze" on vinly. A good old fashioned double live LP, just like the old days. Not a digital download or CD in sight for this one. The music is epic old school rock and twang and so is the listening format......as it should be.

Life is good.

By the way, in case anyone has the CD and the free download that came with it, you really should listen to this in the song order of the vinyl pressing. It really opens the album up and gives a much better listening experience.

Kings X

I just got this CD recorded back in the day (1992) from Cleveland. KingsX were one of the "bridge" bands for me to discover new heavy rock music. They were played alongside Temple of the Dog, and Pearl Jam and could be considered fore-runners of the grunge sound. Incredibly talented 3 piece band, with vocal harmonies and pop chops that balance their heaviness.

Give a listen.

Also I highly recommend Dug Pinnicks CD Strum It Up. A total KICK ASS groove laden CD!!!!

And a local NJ guy, playing good old fashioned R&B. Kind of a cross between the Beatles and Stevie Wonder. VERY clever, catchy pop song writing. I actually saw him open for Johnny Winter. Give a listen.

Lucky, they were here in AL the 28th of Feb. But I wasn't able to go :(

Oh, and Blue Oyster Cult set with Extraterrestrial-Live, Blue Oyster Cult, and Fire of Unknown Origin.

My next target is Deep Purple - The platinum Collection. Never had much DP. :(
