Jeff R Hall commented on Rod Ames's blog post 'Yo La Tengo's alter ego scores with this completely inappropriately named (but I bought it anyway) tribute CD -'
"Yo La Tengo are definitely one of the great unheard (But certainly not unhearalded) bands in music. (In any genre, be it their infrequent foreys into Country or their usual rawkus noise fests.) If nothing else, how many bands can say they…"

Jeff R Hall commented on Rod Ames's blog post 'Yo La Tengo's alter ego scores with this completely inappropriately named (but I bought it anyway) tribute CD -'
"Checked out Yo La Tengo's Fakebook from 1990. (Wow, I can't believe this disc is almost 20 years old.) To these jaded ears it is not only one of the great "lost" Alt/Country albums ever, but a fine collection of odd and sods.…"

Jeff R Hall commented on Paul Cantin's blog post 'People Who Died: Jim Carroll'
"Paul - Gay Porno, that is brilliant. I loved Jim Carroll's music back in the 70's and while I never lost my affection for it, it was shuffled to the back of the pile as time wore on. I came to his writing and poetry much later and fell…"

"Grant - You are not missing anything. I never got M. Ward either."

Jeff R Hall commented on Grant Alden's blog post 'Quickly, then: The remarkable Ian Hunter'
""So let me ask the question: Yes, but is it Americana? " - Yes, of course it is. I saw Ian Hunter for the first time when I was 13, opening for Styx of all bands. (Yes, I was going to see Styx. All I can offer as an explanation is that I…"

Jeff R Hall commented on Kim Ruehl's blog post 'Record Store Day and the new music industry'
"Easy Ed - Wow, a couple of hours? Here in LA it's traffic. For you, it really is an adventure. More power to you sir. I didn't mean to imply it was all about downloads for you and I apologize if I came off snarky or snide. As for format,…"

Jeff R Hall commented on Kim Ruehl's blog post 'Record Store Day and the new music industry'
"Grant - You don't ever have to apologize for not purchasing music. You do plenty to support artists and get their music out, even if you aren't spending cash on discs. (Not that you really were apologizing, but I've had that very same…"

Jeff R Hall commented on Kim Ruehl's blog post 'Record Store Day and the new music industry'
"I hit two shops on Record Store Day and I'm planning on hitting two more this week on-line. (One has a respective brick and mortar halfway across America and the other is on-line only, but all four have mailing list, fortunately for me.) I…"

"Jerry - RE: Polka - Your saying Lawrence Welk isn't on your permanent rotation? Those sides with Myron Floren ROCKED! Ron - I'm pretty sure we've talked about Ryan Adams in the past. The man needs an editor. When he was with a band,…"

Jeff R Hall replied to Sonofspam's discussion 'Reckless Kelly Wicked Twisted Road?'
"Without knowing more about you and your musical tastes it's hard to give a blanket yes or no. However, having said that, I rather like everything Reckless Kelly has done. Wicked Twisted is a great choice, but if you were looking for a single RK…"

""No one seems to talk about Wilco anymore." - To my jaded ears, Tweedy was always an overrated. They have fallen so far off my radar I forgot to even mention tham here."

Jeff R Hall commented on Grant Alden's blog post 'A heretic's Sunday confessions'
"Grant - No comparisons work vs. work. They were different artists. Cash wrote his own songs, Presley didn't. Merely comparing parts of their career paths. Both had their greatest impacts early, and far less impact much later on. (Granted Johnny…"

Jeff R Hall commented on Grant Alden's blog post 'A heretic's Sunday confessions'
"RE: Elvis - I think saying he was a chimera discounts what he did for music. He, like the Beatles, changed all the rules. Plus, those early sides are great, as well as a good bit of the later sides. (Would you really say Suspicious Minds isn't…"

"Oh, as for Sunday mornings confessions. Chris Wall once wrote, I went to church today/ First time in a while. And I did it in my own way/ as best befits my style. I put Ray Wylie Hubbard/ On the CD Player. As I played and sang along/It Felkt just…"
