Motel Shot: Expanded Edition

Read "Motel Shot: Expanded Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

With the passage of time, Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett, are unfortunately becoming more and more the unsung heroes of a Seventies rock and roll. The Southern couple not only acknowledged, but built upon roots of blues, folk and country, as well as the soul and r&b influences at the very heart of their style, aided and ...

Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes: The Fever: The Remastered Epic Recordings

Read "The Fever: The Remastered Epic Recordings" reviewed by Doug Collette

Unless a musiclover becomes fully-versed in the full career trajectory of Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes via their latter-day work with Barry Beckett, Nile Rodgers, et.al., as compiled on All I Want Is Everything (Rhino 1993), it's difficult if not impossible to avoid seeing the group as a novelty act at best or worse, a ...

The Rascals: The Complete Singles A's & B's

Read "The Rascals: The Complete Singles A's & B's" reviewed by Doug Collette

The career trajectory of the 'Young' Rascals took them from a point in music culture where singles were the focal point of both art and commerce to a point where the album was a work unto itself rather than a collection of singles. As much as it's aimed at a true devotee of the band, The ...

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band: Got A Mind to Give Up Living: Live 1966

Read "Got A Mind to Give Up Living: Live 1966" reviewed by Doug Collette

Real Gone Music's release of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band's Live 1966 is a godsend for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it reminds, if that's indeed necessary, of what a vital influence on contemporary blues was (and is) this sextet.

Forget for a moment the profundity of an ...

Read "Dick's Pick's Volume One: Tampa, Florida 12/19/73" reviewed by Doug Collette

Concluding a reissue program begun in 2011, the Real Gone Music release of Grateful Dead Dick's Picks Volume One brings fitting perspective to a series that, in more ways than one, created a template for archiving an artist's work. And in an unusual approach that is peculiarly appropriate to the mindset of the iconoclastic band and ...

Grateful Dead: Dick's Pick's Volume Three: Pembroke Pines, Florida 5/22/77

Read "Dick's Pick's Volume Three: Pembroke Pines, Florida 5/22/77" reviewed by Doug Collette

Given what's ensued--beyond the scope of the band itself-in the wake of the Grateful Dead's very first archive series, 'Dick's Picks,' it's hard to believe but well to remember this ongoing project had comparatively modest, humble beginnings. An offhanded conversation between bassist Phil Lesh and ultra-fan Dick Latvala let to an eventual total of thirty-six titles, ...

Grateful Dead ‎– Dick's Picks Volume Four: Fillmore East 2/13-14/70

Read "Grateful Dead ‎– Dick's Picks Volume Four: Fillmore East 2/13-14/70" reviewed by Doug Collette

Quite apart from the the scintillating performances spread over (the first ever release of) three CD's on the Grateful Dead's Dick's Picks Volume 4, this title has all the earmarks of a classic entry into this seminal archive series. It was recorded at the fabled Fillmore East, the now defunct New York City venue operated by ...

Dave's Picks Volume 15 & Dick's Picks Volume 5

Read "Dave's Picks Volume 15 & Dick's Picks Volume 5" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's been said before but it's worth saying again: if the coincidental Grateful Dead archive releases on Real Gone Music and Rhino Records are meant to complement each or not, they end up doing so. Significant changes in the band's personnel took place in the fifteen months between the April 22, 1978 show captured on Dave's ...

Nils Lofgren: Nils Lofgren

Read "Nils Lofgren: Nils Lofgren" reviewed by Doug Collette

Apart from Nils Lofgren's essay of clear-headed, affectionate reflection and a few extra photos, there's no additional content on the reissue of his eponymous solo album (here often referred to as “Fat Man" based on the cover picture). But there really doesn't need to be: this is one of those very rare rock records that sounds ...
