Chicago: The Terry Kath Experience

Michelle Kath Sinclair's The Terry Kath Experience is a combination of history and homage to the her late father, the guitarist and one of the founding members of Chicago. The film proceeds with a streamlined logic, not to mention an abiding sense of love ...

Mike Mizwinski: A Year Ago Today

Read "A Year Ago Today" reviewed by Doug Collette

There's a photo of Mike Mizwinski on his website populated with background images of artists ranging from Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, the Who, the Avett Brothers and the String Cheese Incident. Speaking volumes about this man's eclectic approach to music, this pictorial evidence also suggests much about the freewheeling attitude Mizwinski displays on A Year ...

The Legacy of Big Star: Alex Chilton, Chris Bell and Luther Russell

Read "The Legacy of Big Star: Alex Chilton, Chris Bell and Luther Russell" reviewed by Doug Collette

Big Star, the late lamented forefathers of power-pop as we know it, was a star-crossed group in virtually every sense William Shakespeare might've intended. The group suffered as much external as internal strife, ranging from unforeseen business slip-ups that muffled the impact of their record releases to the equally startling departure of linchpin Chris Bell in ...

Steve Barton: Tall Tales And Alibis

Read "Tall Tales And Alibis" reviewed by Doug Collette

Like Bob Dylan's Triplicate (Columbia, 2017), Steve Barton's Tall Tales And Alibis recounts a rite of passage in three parts. But even though the once and future member of Translator only assigns specific sub-titles once (in the recording credits), his journey from darkness to light is as explicit as that of the Nobel Laureate's, perhaps even ...

Escaper: Edge Detection

Read "Edge Detection" reviewed by Doug Collette

Its name cryptic but provocative, Escaper embarks on something of a fantastic journey with its sophomore album, Edge Detection. As the quintet moves from the earthy realms of the material world into far-flung reaches of space(s), it legitimately seeks to inspire and to a great degree achieves that ambition.

Nine nimble renderings of Escaper's ...

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

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 ...


Davy Knowles: Best of the Bootlegs 2017

Read "Best of the Bootlegs 2017" reviewed by Doug Collette

Davy Knowles inaugurated a monthly series of live concert downloads during the course of 2017. As the title denotes, Best of the Bootlegs 2017 is purportedly the proverbial cream of that digital crop, and the approximately seventy-five minute CD fairly well depicts the live presentations of the Isle of Man native.

The collection succeeds ...


Chris Hillman: The Asylum Years

Read "The Asylum Years" reviewed by Doug Collette

Chris Hillman is a rare musical artist indeed. Not only is he a multi-instrumentalist as capable as he is versatile plus an engaging lead and harmony singer, he's also a songwriter well-versed in a range of music including folk, rock, bluegrass and country. Of equal and perhaps even greater importance is Hillman's ability to forge a ...
