Read "In the Dark" reviewed by Jim Trageser

Crafting the perfect riff has been the goal of every blues and rock guitarist since Jimi Hendrix first began channeling Albert King. Welding a memorable theme to jaw-dropping technique is the surest way for a budding guitarist to elevate his or her reputation.

Houston, Texas' Sparky Parker's debut opens with one of those defining ...

Michael Lauren: Give My Regards To Portugal

Read "Michael Lauren: Give My Regards To Portugal" reviewed by Jim Worsley

From Broadway to jazz to Portugal. A circuitous route for sure. One that has, however, served international musician Michael Lauren well. The now seventy-year- old multi-styled drummer came out of the womb with a kick pedal and has been holding down a symphony of beats ever since. Over the years he has played or recorded with ...

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe: Gnomes and Badgers

Read "Gnomes and Badgers" reviewed by Doug Collette

Rolling Stones: Beggar’s Banquet 50th Anniversary Edition

Read "Beggar’s Banquet 50th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

It is hard to properly define when rock music reached its zenith, so I am going to designate that pinnacle as the four-year period between 1968 and 1972. As a not-so-certain coincidence, this same period corresponds to what is considered the Golden Age of the Rolling Stones, which further not-so-certainly coincides with the departure and subsequent ...

Rolling Stones
Voodoo Lounge Uncut
Eagle Vision
2018

If there's anything better than issuing a previously-unreleased recording of some kind, it's putting out a fully-restored piece once available only in part. As indicated by its title, the Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge Uncut represents the full and complete performance, in proper running ...
