Blackberry Smoke: Find A Light

Read "Find A Light" reviewed by Doug Collette

Since that flash-point in the Fifties by which blues and country musics were fused into rock and roll, this hybrid has evolved via a seemingly endless series of permutations, the most derivative of which are an amorphous amalgamation of influences. In contrast, the most memorable instances--or at least the ones with the most potential for extended ...

Read "Stax Singles, Vol. 4: Rarities & Best of the Rest" reviewed by Jim Trageser

Stax Records defined the “Memphis Sound" of soul music in the 1960s. With a roster that took in Otis Redding, Booker T & The MGs, Sam & Dave, Rufus Thomas and Isaac Hayes, Stax and its sister label Volt provided the main competition to Motown as a home to classic soul acts.

Trouble No More - The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981

Read "Trouble No More - The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981" reviewed by Doug Collette

As Bob Dylan is pictured on the front cover of his latest archive release, Trouble No More, aviator shades glinting in the spotlight with his arms akimbo over the Fender guitar strapped over his shoulder, he doesn't appear all that much different than the wildly combative folk-rocker of the mid-Sixties on which much of his legend ...

Gregg Allman: December 8, 1947 – May 27, 2017

Read "Gregg Allman: December 8, 1947 – May 27, 2017" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

“Well, I'll keep on moving. Things are bound to be improving these days. One of these days..."

Gregg Allman recorded Jackson Browne's lament for his 1973 Capricorn release Laid Back. The song clung to him like smoke, the length of his career, surfacing here and there, until, finally he sang the song with its ...

Allan Holdsworth: The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!

Read "Allan Holdsworth: The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!" reviewed by John Kelman

In a time when album sales are a challenge being mitigated, at least to some extent, by the release of deluxe editions and box sets, it's still more necessary than ever to grab potential listeners with imagery and words; the title of a box set can have, especially for those less than intimately familiar with the ...

Little Feat: Dixie Chicken

Read "Dixie Chicken" reviewed by Sacha O'Grady

Ogden Theater

Warren Haynes' musical journey continues. Is he on a quest? Certainly he's not looking for a specific “musical identity." The whole point of the journey seems to be covering as much musical territory as possible in ...

Gov't Mule with John Scofield
Ogden Theatre
Denver, CO
February 24, 2015

A jazz guy plays with a heavy rock band? That would be the superficial description of Sco-Mule. A deeper examination shows that John Scofield and Gov't Mule's Warren Haynes are twin brothers of different mothers. Each possesses a yearning, ...

Jim Pembroke: If The Rain Comes

Read "If The Rain Comes" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Singer / songwriter Jim Pembroke has had a fascinating career to say the least. A native Londoner, Pembroke journeyed to Finland to visit his then-girlfriend in the mid-1960s. He wound up staying, and by the end of the decade he had recorded an album with the seminal Finnish rock band, Blues Section, taught himself piano, and ...
