Please visit his Kickstarter page and consider making […]

Tom Verlaine – Dreamtime

by TW on May 5, 2014

Tom Verlaine – Dreamtime The band Television is the dividing line among punk music fans. They are either the “most punk” or “least punk” of the old school, 1970s American artists, depending on what you like about “punk” mainly. To me, Television fits right alongside Talking Heads, and even some of the Ohio groups such […]

Ozzy Osbourne – No Rest For The Wicked The Prince of Darkness was in a bit of a pickle in 1988. Having released two albums (Bark At The Moon and the abominable The Ultimate Sin) employing the highly underrated Jake E. Lee on lead guitar, and a baffling double live set (Tribute) with material featuring […]

Roy Orbison and Friends – A Black and White Night Live I’ve always had a great appreciation for the voice of Roy Orbison.  Yet I, like many my age, didn’t really start to learn more about his music until he’d seen a hearty career resurgence in the few years just prior to his death.  There […]

Jimmy Page & Robert Plant – Walking Into Clarksdale I can’t recall what I had going on when the main songwriters from the band Led Zeppelin, vocalist Robert Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page, decided to make an attempt at a reunion during the mid- to late ‘90s, but I was obviously not paying attention.  I […]

Roy Orbison – The Monument Singles Collection (1960 – 1964) I don’t usually take the time to write about greatest hits packages.  It’s not that I don’t like them, but it’s more like “here are all the songs you might possibly know by this artist” – big deal, not much of a story.  But I’ll […]

Jethro Tull – Crest Of A Knave

by TW on April 10, 2014

  Jethro Tull – Crest Of A Knave I’ve finally added an album to my collection that contains some historical significance for all music fans, not just longtime Tull fans like me.  You see, 1987’s Crest Of A Knave actually won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock or Heavy Metal Performance, defeating the album that […]

Jesus Christ Superstar

by TW on April 7, 2014

Jesus Christ Superstar (1970 Decca Records) Taking a look at my calendar and then outside…then back to my calendar, and things don’t seem to jibe.  Winter will never end in Wisconsin despite our dreams of a spring thaw.  So, we think warm thoughts and try to remember what spring was all about.  We turn to […]

Yes – Yesshows

by TW on April 4, 2014

Yes – Yesshows I’ve always been a big fan of the band Yes, and all their various incarnations and side projects.  But the band has built quite a sizable discography in their 40-some years of existence, so I’ve got a few holes in my collection.  I took a stab at filling one of those holes […]
