Jack Clement – For Once And For All (Album Review)

Allen, Reynolds, and a laid-back, masterful collection of familiar Clement-penned country classics.

A decade of Clement-penned originals plus a pair of co-writes grace this late music legend’s third solo collection, released just short of a year after his passing aged 82. Memphis-raised Jack Henderson Clement launched his career with the renowned imprint Sun Records, as producer, musician, songwriter, and recording artist. His 1950s sides for the label were included…

Lewisburg Music Festival (Lewisburg, W.V. - July 26, 2014)

West Virginia has a long, rich history of music festivals. Most notably the Vandalia Gathering, The Augusta Heritage Festival and the Appalachian String Band Festival. Those three are centered around Appalachian traditions, music being a primary, but not necessarily only, focus. The Music in the Mountains Bluegrass Festival serves up, as its name implies, straight ahead bluegrass.

While there are also additional, more community-based…

Wise Old Moon - The Patterns (Album Review)

Wise Old Moon. Sounds like a tall tale from an old children’s story book. Perhaps the namesake of a tavern or bookstore in a New England town that hasn’t quite caught up with time yet? But in this case it’s the name of a young and truly gifted roots music outfit from the Connecticut area. Every so often a record comes along that makes you happy this kind of music exists, truly happy. Not simply a “hey that’s a good record” but a “this is a pure example of

Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin I, II & III 2014 Remasters (Album Review)

Has any music reviewer ever missed the mark more than John Mendelsohn in his 1969 Rolling Stone critique of Led Zeppelin’s scorching, finely honed debut? After calling the album self-indulgent, he labeled Jimmy Page “a very limited producer and a writer of weak, unimaginative songs” and dismissed Robert Plant’s “strained and unconvincing shouting.” The album, Mendelsohn concluded,…
