Grateful Dead: The Best of the Grateful Dead Live

Read "The Best of the Grateful Dead Live" reviewed by Doug Collette

A companion piece to 2015's similarly-titled compendium of studio recordings, The Best of the Grateful Dead Live may be likewise redundant for long-time fans of the iconic group. But it is well to remember there are many new listeners and followers, many of whom are helping sell-out Dead & Company tours of recent years, for whom ...

Rock Candy: Montrose (eponymous) & Paper Money

Read "Rock Candy: Montrose (eponymous) & Paper Money" reviewed by Doug Collette

The late Ronnie Montrose was a guitar hero for our times if there ever was one. An uncommon combination of skills in which he fused as much finesse as power enabled him to assume him a wide-ranging series of sideman gigs and solo projects, the dual results of which were, unfortunately, inextricably intertwined: he was impossible ...

Eagles: Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition

Read "Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Anyone inclined to cast aspersion on the integrity of the Eagles might well avail themselves of the 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition of Hotel California and go straight to the concert content on the second of the two CD's.

Roughly forty-five minutes in duration, the ten tracks recorded live at the Los Angeles Forum in ...

The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

In his usual evenhanded, deceptively passionate prose for The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, David Fricke neatly encapsulates the combined personal and universal significance of the record. Released in January of 1967, the quartet's debut album, produced by Paul Rothchild, predates other monumental titles of the year--the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper (Parlophone), Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow (RCA, ...

Bad Company: Live 1977 & 1979

Read "Bad Company: Live 1977 & 1979" reviewed by Doug Collette

Formed from the fragments of Free and Mott the Hoople, Bad Company took a careerist approach to their efforts together from the very start. Much publicity surrounded the announcement of their alliance including the fact the quartet's debut album was the first release from Led Zeppelin's custom label Swan Song. Add to that a timeline beginning ...

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 ...

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: CSNY 1974

Read "Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: CSNY 1974" reviewed by Doug Collette

Its multi-foldout package of three CD's, DVD (or Blu-Ray) and a one-hundred eighty-eight page booklet as smartly designed as it is handsome, CSNY 1974 represents a painstaking labor of love on the part of Graham Nash, who supervised the project over a protracted period of time, in collaboration with co-producer Joel Bernstein and engineer Stanley Tajima ...

The Doors: Live At The Bowl '68

Read "Live At The Bowl '68" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Doors' Live at The Bowl '68 is a remarkable piece of work, as much for the technical wizardry of the recording it comprises as for the pointed restraint on the part of the iconic band as it performs.

Arguably at the height of its popularity at the time of this July 5, 1968 performance ...

The Jerry Garcia Band: The Jerry Garcia Band: Let It Rock

Read "The Jerry Garcia Band: Let It Rock" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jerry Garcia never officially announced he was embarking on a solo career apart from the Grateful Dead, the band for which he served as titular leader during its entire existence. Moved by the restless work ethic of the truly professional musician, the guitarist/vocalist/composer began working with a group dubbed Legion of Mary in 1975. Only after ...
