ISBN: #978-1642930399

Bridges To Bremen

Read "Bridges To Bremen" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones
Bridges To Bremen
Eagle Rock
2010

Stunned by the brilliant pacing of the two and half hours plus that comprises the Rolling Stones' Bridges To Bremen, it's easy to see why Paul Sexton turns borderline breathless during the course of his essay in the booklet enclosed in the ...

The Rolling Stones
Rock And Roll Circus Deluxe Edition
ABKCO
2019

The limited Deluxe Edition of The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus may rescue the film from remaining (arguably) one of the lost artifacts of contemporary rock and roll. Originally set for 2019 release in this format while the ...

Luther Russell: Medium Cool

Read "Medium Cool" reviewed by Doug Collette

The photo of Luther Russell wearing shades inside this digipak perfectly captures the attitude of this album's title, albeit with slightly self-effacing charm. But the music resounds even deeper in that regard. Russell's longstanding independence is the source of the infectious immediacy in his rock, and his do-it-yourself approach to making records creates loose, scrappy power ...

Marianne Faithfull: Come And Stay With Me: The UK 45's 1964-1969

Read "Come And Stay With Me: The UK 45's 1964-1969" reviewed by Doug Collette

If Come And Stay With Me proves anything, it is that Marianne Faithfull was hardly the mere waif she appeared to be during her initial rise to fame. This collection of her earliest work, comprised of the A and B-sides of UK Decca singles plus the Go Away From My World EP, suggest a resilience borne ...

Rolling Stones: Beggars Banquet 50th Anniversary Edition

Read "Beggars Banquet 50th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

With the exception of the expanded versions of Exile On Main Street (UME, 2010), Sticky Fingers (UME, 2011) and Some Girls (UME, 2015), the arguable essentials of their discography, the Rolling Stones have confined the archiving of their vault to unreleased concert material on audio and video rather than plumbing the depths for unreleased outtakes, demos ...

Various Artists: Confessin' The Blues

Read "Confessin' The Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette

If it weren't so scrupulously annotated (at least up to a point) or attractively designed, this title might be flippantly described as “The Greatest Hits of the Blues." As is, it is the third in a roots revival series of sorts. Confessin' The Blues follows Chicago Plays the Stones (Raisin' Music, 2018), where a Windy city ...

Tom Petty: An American Treasure

Read "An American Treasure" reviewed by Doug Collette

In a direct, no nonsense gesture the subject of this anthology would no doubt appreciate, the earliest inclusions on the 4-CD anthology An American Treasure illustrate how Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers forged their own style of songwriting and playing from Bob Dylan, the Byrds and the Rolling Stones. “Surrender," “Listen To Her Heart," and" You're ...
