Not that any of you folks need a help with your music, but I figure I would give you a heads up on a few cds I picked up recently (I may be one of the few people still buying cds I think, not really an iTunes guy). I picked up a live Solomon Burke cd two days ago. Its from the House of Blues in NOLA from I think '94. I was fortunate enough to see Solomon sit in with the DTB at the Jammys a few years ago and I was blown away. This cd is awesome too. I highly recommend it.

The other one I picked up is Warren Zevon's Stand in the Fire, which is a live recording from the Roxy in West Hollywood from 1980. I think this is Zevon at his most unhinged best. He sounds like a real wildman on it. In the liner notes, there is scene described where Jackson Browne asks Zevon if he considers himself a songwriter. Zevon tells him no, he is an entertainer. He says, "If you aren't entertaining, you aren't doing anything." This show is certainly entertaining.

Anyone else have any recommendations? Trying to expand my music collection. I feel like I have been listening to the same stuff over and over recently.

I'm always up for some current CD recommendations, if you've got them. It's sad how few I buy these days.

Just got John Scofields "Piety Street" last week and I keep getting more impressed with his guitar skills the more I listen . I was pleasantly blown away by Scofield when he was part of Phil & Friends at Mountain Jam in 2007 .......equally so when he played Guitar with Medeski Martin & Wood at Mountain Jam 2008 ........... MM&W with Scofield should get in the studio & record an album IMO.

My most recent purchase is Fela Kuti's LIVE WITH GINGER BAKER album. If you like funky horns, a la James Brown, check it out.

Just came out this week . . . Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam -- Coming Up For Air.

Somehow, it's even better than the first album (if you don't have the first Back Door Slam album, might as well pick that up, too).

As far as I'm concerned, the bright future of blues rock is here, and its BDS.

It's not an official release, but there's a live show of Mick Taylor's from Osaka, Japan just a couple of months ago that is killer! I haven't heard much of Mick's post-Stones work and this is a good quality recording!

(available for download here: http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=198 Fits on 2 discs )

The only time I've seen him live was in '98 sitting in with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers for a couple of numbers, but he only played slide...on this Osaka show, he does all the singing, too (didn't know he had a voice! HA!) I'm highly impressed!

If I'm not mistaken, this one has MMW as Sco's band:

Go to http://bigmo.com and buy anything by Danny Gatton. The website also has a couple of CDs by Joey DeFrancesco, who's a monster on the B3 and can play rings around anyone, I suspect. (I haven't heard these, but I have him on Danny's CD Relentless and he's great.) The prices are good, and in Danny you'll hear a guitarist who was fast, clean, articulate, and melodic. He drew from rock, rockabilly, jazz, blues and a range of other musics to create his own voice. I can't listen to him enough -- the only guitarist who could've made Duane sweat. But they would'v pushed each other beyond the stratosphere.

Been enjoying the new Byrne/ENo "everything that happens will happen today"

someone compared it to talking heads "remain in Light"

I don't see it as this record doesn't have the polyrythms that dominate "remain in light"

still very enjoyable.

I orderd the vinyl.
