In a career now early in its fourth decade, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Steven Wilson has bucked almost every trend in the new millennium music industry. After spending over twenty years as the driving force behind Porcupine Tree, he made ...

Procol Harum: Novum

Read "Procol Harum: Novum" reviewed by Doug Collette

Every once in a great while, a band with some history and, usually, no small pedigree, will reignite the chemistry that begat its sound and do so without over-obvious replication of its essential style. Neil Young and Crazy Horse found themselves in such a rarefied space with Ragged Glory (Reprise, 1990) as did the Allman Brothers ...

Rory Gallagher: Irish Tour '74 Deluxe Edition

Read "Rory Gallagher: Irish Tour '74 Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Of all the entries in the Rory Gallagher discography-and it's lengthy despite his premature passing in 1995 at the age of forty-seven-none deserve the expanded treatment more than Irish Tour '74, which is not doubt why it was originally documented on film as it happened by Tony Palmer. Not only did the title set the standard ...

Saga: 20/20

Read "20/20" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

20/20 marks the popular Canadian ensemble's 20th release. Here, original vocalist Michael Sadler rejoins the unit, and adds melodious overtones to its stylish, cross-functional melding of pop-rock, progressive rock and progressive metal. Enamored by a first-rate production and a largely memorable track mix, the artists go for the gusto, synchronizing technical veracity with surging rock anthems. ...

Rory Gallagher

Stage Struck

Eagle Records

2011

At their peak, Rory Gallagher's live performances burned with a jaw- dropping intensity, none of which he frittered away with histrionics of any kind. Rather, the late Irish bluesman channeled his energy into his music, which is why the concert albums he released are among ...

Carl Palmer: Working Live - Volume 3

Read "Working Live - Volume 3" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Volume 3 represents the third chapter of celebrated drummer Carl Palmer's reinventions of past group works, including Emerson, Lake and Palmer (ELP). His technical gifts are legendary, and with this live recording, the drummer instills a distant relative viewpoint of routes previously traversed.

On the ELP favorite “Bitches Crystal," guitarist Paul Bielatowicz re-fabricates an ...

Rory Gallagher: Crest of A Wave: The Best of Rory Gallagher

Read "Crest of  A Wave: The Best of Rory Gallagher" reviewed by Doug Collette

Even a died-in-the-wool Rory Gallagher aficionado may wonder if there is really a need for another anthology of the man's work. But the late Irish blues-rocker never did get the attention he deserved and remains an unsung hero of the blues-rock genre even to this day.

Certain previous anthologies, even the sumptuously-packaged, 5.1 SuperAudio formatted Big ...

John Mayall: Tough

Read "Tough" reviewed by Doug Collette

John Mayall looks alternately dignified and defiant in the photos that adorn Tough. The music, however, is permeated with a consistent resolve. Displaying his usual emotionalism, the Godfather of British Blues offers an album largely comprised of covers recorded with an almost entirely new band.

The wisdom of his concept(s) becomes apparent on the very first ...
