    Blues with prominent SAX

    Dick Heckstall-Smith is a sax player who had a big contribution to British blues. Check out his cd Blues and Beyond. Another recommendation is Sinner Street by Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers. Killer guitar and sax all in one package.

    Is Rock n Roll almost dead?

    I agree with you Coltrane. I gave up a long time ago trying to understand why people like the music they do or trying to influence anyone's taste in music. You are so right that what's popular or played on the radio has nothing much to do with anything when discussing music. In a couple...

    Any love for G. Love?

    I agree that G-Love is more blues funk than hip-hop. I'm kind of partial to Philadelphonic as a favorite G-Love cd.

    Da Vinci Code Movie: MAJOR RANT

    I thought the movie was entertaining and the book was a fun read during last summers vacation. Neither the movie or the book were the best I've ever experienced but by no means the worst. I don't understand why there is so much controversy surrounding the book and movie from the religious...

    DBT - A Blessing and a Curse

    The Drive-By Truckers are one of my favorite bands so I picked up A Blessing and A Curse the day it came out. This album is not nearly as thematic as their last three excellent efforts. The songs presented are much more personal and they've moved away from the Southern life fables told on...

    The Derek Trucks Band - "Songlines"

    I don't think Derek Trucks has ever sang a note in his life. When Susan Tedeschi played here a couple of months ago I jokingly asked her if Derek could sing. She just laughed. Of course, Susan's singing is good enough for the both of them. There is live recording of the DTB show at the Wanee...

    New tube adapters from SinglePower

    Does anyone know if these new adaptors will work with a MPX3 configured for 6cg7s? Mine has these silver spacers that stick up an inch or so and I wonder if that will prevent using the 6cg7 -> 5687 adaptors. Can the spacers be removed or are they an integral part of the tube socket? I'd love to...

    Just bought my First acoustic guitar

    Congrats on the guitar. My first guitar was a Yamaha FG-110. That was a long time ago. It served me well for 3 or 4 years and when I was ready for something better I sold it for about what I paid. When I started playing I had a couple of friends that played and they taught me a lot of the...

    No closed phones in league of HD-650 or K701?

    The Beyer DT-250/250 is a very good closed headphone that has a sound similar to the Senns. I think of them as the closed Sennheiser.
