Jimi Hendrix: Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts

Read "Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's a long way from Jimi Hendrix's original Band Of Gypsys (Capitol Records,1970) to Songs For Groovy Children. And it's all by way of Live at the Fillmore East (Legacy Recordings/ Experience Hendrix, 1999) Machine Gun: The Fillmore East First Show 12/31/69 (Legacy Recordings/ Experience Hendrix, 2016). All purported anomalies of its inclusions aside, this five-CD ...

Steve Miller Band: Welcome To The Vault

Read "Welcome To The Vault" reviewed by Doug Collette

Ostentatious it may seem at a glance, the superficially lavish packaging of Welcome to the Vault may to a great extent allay the skepticism in a knowledgeable music lover all too aware of the multiplicity of previously-issued collections/anthologies of the Steve Miller Band. Above and below a large 3D-rendering of the 'Pegasus" logo, the silver embossed ...

And that very declaration arrives apart from recognition of the varied shapes and sizes of the groups he dubbed 'Return To Forever.' In recent years, apart from notable collaborations on stage and in the studio ...

Charlie Parr At Higher Ground

Read "Charlie Parr At Higher Ground" reviewed by Doug Collette

Charlie Parr
Higher Ground Showcase Lounge
South Burlington, VT
