"I never really listened much to Marah, but I love this frickin' album. When I'm putting together my all-time all-time album list, this is going to be very high up on my chart. "

"This is a great thread.  Thanks for the tip on eMusic. I had never heard of them but will certainly investigate. On the first day of each month, Amazon puts up 100 albums on sale for $5. For March, I've already scored the new Damien…"

"I'm almost 60, so I remember HH as part of the British Invasion, but I never realized that they were a band to be taken seriously. I just considered them to be a bubblegum thing, part of the cash grab riding on the Beatles coat tails. Second…"

"4) The Police @ the Rathskellar in Boston - One of their first shows in the U.S. They played 2 sets, the second set was exactly the same as the first. Same songs, same order. Still, this was history in the making. 3) Rockpile @ The Paradise in…"

The Beatles - I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

"Hi Ed. Interesting back story on this song. Wikipedia says they wrote this specifically for George George to sing because he had no confidence in his songwriting ability."

denton fabrics commented on big boy's blog post 'Joe King Carrasco – Rucca (Album Review)'
"I saw him at the Paradise in Boston in the '80s. His gimmick then was that he had a 100+ foot guitar cord and halfway thru a song, he'd leave the stage, still playing his guitar, and jam outside the building, leaving his band playing on…"

Best albums of 2013? What a concept!

I jumped out of bed last night with an incredible thought! What if I wrote a blog - try to follow me now - that listed what I thought to be the best Americana albums of 2013? That would change EVERYTHING! So without further adieu....1) Valerie June - Pushing Against A StoneDo you remember the old ad for Prego Spaghetti Sauce? They'd have some old Italian lady yelling "it's in there! it's in there!". Garlic? It's in there! Onions? It's in there! That's how I feel about Valerie June's debut…See More

Songwriters in search of inspiration wanted!

One of the things I look for in the music I choose to listen to are "connections". Connections to the songwriters land, connections to the people, connections to family, connections to history. There seems to be an abundance of these connections in the type of music that we all write about and read about on these pages. The Allman Brothers ARE Georgia. Loretta Lynn IS Kentucky. John Denver IS Colorado. Mellencamp IS Indiana and the heartland. And Texas....oh…

R.E.M. Calls It Quits

I happened to tell a younger friend and fellow self-professed musicologist the news that R.E.M. announced their breakup today and he said sarcastically that it's been years since they've been relevant anyway. Well, I thought, maybe he's right. Although their first nine (or so) albums were (in my mind) classic, near classic, and so far beyond relevant that they were groundbreaking, genre defining, and the coolest shit your 1980s ears had ever heard, I probably started to lose interest in them… Continue

"Stopped in your tracks" tracks

How many times have you been stopped in your tracks by a song? I mean, left dumbfounded, unable to speak or move? Have you ever? It's happened to me four times and I remember them all like it was yesterday.
 
First time. August, 1975. I was upstairs in my room packing my bags for a third attempt at college. For Boston, for Boston, I was thinking, at last I can get out of this town and have some real fun in the city at Boston College. And then BAM, Born To Run came on…

Kristin Hersh releases her new album, "Crooked", as a book.



Being a Boston boy, I've spent a good part of my musical life with Kristin Hersh. Her ground breaking band, Throwing Muses - which she fronted as a teenager with her step-sister Tanya Donelly - was a huge part of the Boston scene back in the 80s (technicaly, they were from Providence, RI). Later, she went on her own, eventually retreating to the California desert with her family and recorded some amazing albums like "Hips and Makers" and 1998's… Continue
