The Doors: The Soft Parade - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "The Soft Parade - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

The 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of The Doors' The Soft Parade might well be reconfigured to a great degree without sacrificing its multi-configuration format. In doing so, this milestone package would then even more vividly depict this turbulent period in the iconic band's history. Even as it is, however, the existing combination of compact disc and ...

Los Lonely Boys and the Gary Douglas Band The Space at Westbury Westbury, NY April 20, 2019 Classic rock power trio Los Lonely Boys calls their musical gumbo “Texican rock 'n' roll."

MUSICIAN Born:

Shamus Dark

I've spent the last few years recording albums, making videos and performing in and around London, the far east and New York City. Most of the songs come from the 1930's, 40's and 50's, written by the great composers of the day; Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, Hoagy Carmichael, Matt Dennis, Harold Arlen et al. But there are also songs by Elvis Costello and Joy Division. With the help of some great collaborating musicians and producers, I'm doing my best to bring some of these great old American songbook standards into the 21st century with the aid of digital technology.

Ace of Cups: Ace of Cups

Read "Ace of Cups" reviewed by Doug Collette

There's a solid Ace of Cups album within the twenty-one plus tracks on this set. Never having released a studio work in the fifty-one years since the group made a name for itself in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury, it only stands to reason AOC would be sorely tempted to make a statement for its debut, particularly in ...

Particle: Accelerator

Read "Accelerator" reviewed by Doug Collette

Contrary to prevailing popular opinion, electr(on)ic keyboards are not just for noodling in ever-so-cheesy, toy-like tones. In the hands of the titular leader of Particle, keyboardist/vocalist Steve Molitz, for instance, those instruments are lethal weapons with which, on the group's first album in fourteen years, he sets out to destroy preconceptions about what righteous creations can ...

The Doors: Waiting For The Sun 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "Waiting For The Sun 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Even though it was just a year after their resounding debut, The Doors (Elektra, 1967) and a followup of sizable, if slightly lesser magnitude, Strange Days (Elektra, 1967)--arguably the stronger of the first two records out only months apart the same year--the bloom was off the rose for the Doors by the time 1968 rolled around, ...

Guido Harari, dietro al mirino come un jazzista

Read "Guido Harari, dietro al mirino come un jazzista" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

"Potresti dire che sono un fotografo jazz, alla faccia di chi mi definisce da sempre un fotografo rock!." Guido Harari scherza volentieri sulla sua nomea di “fotografo musicale," autore di alcuni degli scatti entrati nell'immaginario collettivo e che ritraggono artisti come David Bowie, Tom Waits, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen, Fabrizio De André (alcuni dei ...

Istanbul’s İKSV: An Intensity Beyond Cool

Read "Istanbul’s İKSV: An Intensity Beyond Cool" reviewed by Arthur R George

It would be easy to get breathless, even giddy, about the range and schedule of cultural events organized by İKSV, the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (in Turkish: İstanbul Kültür Sanat Vakfı). One individual could not possibly keep up with its jazz and classical music festivals and everything else that's offered by İKSV. It brings ...

The Doors: Live At The Isle of Wight Festival 1970

Read "The Doors: Live At The Isle of Wight Festival 1970" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Doors Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 Eagle Vision 2018 Inveterate naysayers will inevitably disparage continuing archive releases by the Doors and, to some degree, it's a point well taken: is there any band with a comparable catalog and a greater preponderance of reissues? Yet negativism ignores ...

The Doors: Strange Days - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "Strange Days - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Doors' Strange Days did not have the cultural or commercial impact of the iconic band's eponymous debut earlier that halcyon year. And that's all the more regrettable because, in purely artistic terms, this second album is superior in (almost) every way. Accordingly, the more streamlined 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of this laboriously-recorded landmark ...
