"Jackson" from Wyoming Territory by Kristina Stykos

Some musicians are searchers but many give up after awhile. Some morph into other avenues of their art: writing, teaching, recording or producing. Others simply find other careers. Still, there are those who acknowledge it as their true calling and let the flow from the Source guide them on.Sixto Rodriguez made 2 LP’s for Buddah Records in the early 70’s only to have them virtually ignored in the States while someone bootlegged a half-million…See More

A Re-View of the 1967 singer-songwriter classic ~ Eric Andersen's ‘Bout Changes ‘n Things, Take 2

Today it is common to look back on one artist whose album or song has had a profound impact on both our lives and musical history. The prolific music scholar and critic Greil Marcus wrote an entire book solely about one song: Like A Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan at the Crossroads; Colin Irwin and Billboard Books gave us an almost text book account of the making of one album, appropriately titled: Highway 61 Revisited. It is now my turn to weigh in on an album that may be less well known but is no…See More

An American Trilogy - Mickey Newbury (Cargo Records UK; Saint Ceclia Knows/Mountain Retreat - 5/24)

There may be many reasons for the release of Mickey Newbury’s An American Trilogy Box Set and I’m sure all of them will be valid. Finding the master tapes in the Electra Records vaults is a good start, but I’m not sure that’s enough of a reason to release a box set with embossed gold-leaf archival paper cardboard and an elaborate booklet for three albums that came out in succession from ’69-73 to rave reviews but limited sales.
