Bridges To Bremen

Read "Bridges To Bremen" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones
Bridges To Bremen
Eagle Rock
2010

Stunned by the brilliant pacing of the two and half hours plus that comprises the Rolling Stones' Bridges To Bremen, it's easy to see why Paul Sexton turns borderline breathless during the course of his essay in the booklet enclosed in the ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Bear's Sonic Journals: Fillmore East February 1970 - Deluxe Edition

Read "Bear's Sonic Journals: Fillmore East February 1970 - Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

This Fillmore East February 1970 set is actually the third physical release of these recordings, originally issued in truncated form in 1996 as part of the Grateful Dead's Dick's Pick's archive series. This three-CD set follows closely on the heels of the 2018 digital distribution of all the recordings from the three New York dates on ...

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe: Gnomes and Badgers

Read "Gnomes and Badgers" reviewed by Doug Collette

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe swings hard and grooves deeply for the better part of Gnomes and Badgers. In fact, if the tracks with vocals like “What If You Knew" on the first half of the record were sequenced in a different order, those cuts might well be nothing more than mere distraction from the real attraction(s) ...

Dennis Coffey: Live at Baker's

Read "Live at Baker's" reviewed by Doug Collette

The intimations of springtime on guitarist Dennis Coffey's Live at Baker's place it more closely in line with the balmy tone of Hot Coffey in the D: Burnin' At Morey Baker's Showplace Lounge (Resonance Records, 2016) than the insistent rhythm workout of One Night at Morey's: 1968 (Omnivore, 2018). Nevertheless, this three concert release, like its ...

Various Artists: Confessin' The Blues

Read "Confessin' The Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette

If it weren't so scrupulously annotated (at least up to a point) or attractively designed, this title might be flippantly described as “The Greatest Hits of the Blues." As is, it is the third in a roots revival series of sorts. Confessin' The Blues follows Chicago Plays the Stones (Raisin' Music, 2018), where a Windy city ...

Scott Sharrard & Jack Pearson: Brothers by Proxy

Read "Scott Sharrard & Jack Pearson: Brothers by Proxy" reviewed by Doug Collette

As the legacy of the Allman Brothers Band looms ever larger with the passing years, those musicians outside the nucleus of the seminal Southern rock/blues band are building upon their early contributions to the group, plus their own prior work, in so doing elevating their profiles proportionately. Take Jack Pearson, for instance, whose stint with ABB ...

Up From The Roots: Cary Morin, Colin James, Joanne Shaw Taylor & Chris Youlden

Read "Up From The Roots: Cary Morin, Colin James, Joanne Shaw Taylor & Chris Youlden" reviewed by Doug Collette

Blues musicians invariably cover traditional genre material because it connects them with the wellspring of emotion at the heart of this music and illustrates the major influences on their personal style. Sometimes these gestures are more obvious than others, but as are those of Cary Morin's on his latest album, they can bespeak bold courage as ...

Doyle Bramhall II: Shades

Read "Shades" reviewed by Doug Collette

The title of Doyle Bramhall II's Shades intimates a fitting level of nuance comparable to that of his previous album, Rich Man (Concord, 2016), where he married the most profound spiritual themes of his original material to lush production and arrangement. Here, in contrast, he emphasizes his blues and R&B roots so that, as a direct ...

Anthem Of The Sun 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "Anthem Of The Sun 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

In an essay dense with historical detail and rich in provocative allusions, Steve Silberman accurately and vividly recounts the sequence of events involved in the original production of the Grateful Dead's second studio album Anthem of the Sun. The writer recounts a herculean task, the comparable likes of which has resulted in this 50th Anniversary Deluxe ...
