What are you listening to right now??

2076

Yes Live At the Apollo (wait --- what????) When I saw this listed on AXS I HAD to check it out. If there was EVER a band I could NOT imagine playing at the legendary Apollo Theater, it would be a bunch of pasty white British guys playing prog rock.

But it turns out to be the Apollo Theater in Manchester, England, not the one in Harlem. As Emily Litella would say, "Never mind." And danged if it didn't turn out to be a killer show! Jon Anderson's voice remains an incredibly pure instrument with no apparent loss of range, Rick Wakeman on keys, Trevor Rabin on guitar, Lee Pomeroy on bass and Lou Molio III on drums. Lee Pomeroy nods to Chris Squire by playing Rickenbacker basses, but doesn't imitate his playing, and adds a welcome funky edge too. Totally digging it!

2077

David McComb (...of the Triffids) - Love Of Will

2078

Sweet - Off the Record album,currently Midnight to Daylight.

2079

The Cars. Thanks for so much great music, guys.

2080

Jack Scott recently, and now Bob Shane. It seems my early music " heroes " are checking out more often than not. On Saturday nights during the late 50's at our house Grandma and Grandpa would come over and we'd watch Hootenanny with all the " Folkies " playing their music. What an innocent time that was. They were all great but my favorite of that time was The Kingston Trio.

2081

Two "Best Of" compilations --- the Beau Brummels and the Animals.

2082

Southern Culture On The Skids, Dirt Track Date

2083

A little classical music for a grey, damp wintry morning:

2084

Wizzard - Marathon Man

2085

Well ,given the date i thought i'd put on Buddy Holly The Memorial Collection.

2086

Gary Moore - Corridors of Power album,currently Rockin' Every Night.

2087

Mostly instrumental, mostly live, different than the original configuration, and a lot of jazz influence (including a version of Dizzy Gillespie's "A Night In Tunisia"). Gary Duncan has always been one of my favorite guitar players, and this album showcases his playing.

2088

I'm on a Queens of the Stone Age binge.

2089

Grady Martin - Roughneck Blues Vol. 1.

2093

One of my all-time favorite vocalists (former lead singer with Count Basie, Pharoah Sanders, and Santana):
