Samantha Fish: Kill Or Be Kind

Read "Kill Or Be Kind" reviewed by Doug Collette

Wielding her guitar as she adopts a saucy blonde bombshell pose, the image Samantha Fish projects on the cover of her Rounder Records debut would mean next to nothing if the music inside didn't deliver a similarly striking impact.

Madeleine Peyroux: Keep Me In Your Heart For A While: The Best Of Madeleine Peyroux

Read "Keep Me In Your Heart For A While: The Best Of Madeleine Peyroux" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

If a musical note has a soul, Duane Allman could slide up to it and hold it beneath a Coricidin bottle in a tremolo seizure of sonic perfection until it screamed. Whether it is the whiplash introduction to “Don't Keep Me Wonderin'" or the most perfect electric blues performance recorded on “One Way Out," Allman had ...
