Gov't Mule at Red Rocks

Read "Gov't Mule at Red Rocks" reviewed by Geoff Anderson

Gov't Mule
Red Rocks
Denver, CO
September 14, 2018

Many musicians like to collect instruments. Certainly guitarists collect guitars. Pat Metheny is a case in point. Over the years he has added a synth-guitar as well as the exotic 42 string Pikasso guitar to his recordings and live performances. Not ...

Eric Clapton: Life In 12 Bars: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Read "Life In 12 Bars: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" reviewed by Doug Collette

There's no scarcity of anthologies devoted to the span of Eric Clapton's work throughout his career, so there's a danger the soundtrack to Lili Fini Zanuck's documentary, Life in 12 Bars, will immediately seem redundant. Yet this companion piece to the film is perfectly complementary, deceptively discerning collection, even apart from the previously-unreleased items it contains. ...

Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars
Eagle Vision

There's a point right near the end of Lili Fini Zanuck's film devoted to Eric Clapton where the archetypal guitar hero makes a solemn statement regarding the profound importance of music in his life. His declaration strikes an unusually resounding ...

The Vintage Years 1970 - 1991

Read "The Vintage Years 1970 - 1991" reviewed by John Kelman

There are bands that manage to carve out a place for themselves in the music world that lasts for decades; there are others who, while having created a name for themselves during their peak years and, while they continue to tour and, even, make the occasional studio album, are invariably best remembered for their seminal early ...

Boyer & Talton and Cowboy

Read "Boyer & Talton and Cowboy" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's difficult, if not impossible, to understate the distinction Cowboy brought to Capricorn Records. At the height of the Southern rock movement launched by and spurred on through the success of the Allman Brothers Band, Phil Walden's artist roster, including the Marshall Tucker Band and Wet Willie, was also populated with bands like Grinderswitch that borrowed ...

Chris Hillman: The Asylum Years

Read "The Asylum Years" reviewed by Doug Collette

Chris Hillman is a rare musical artist indeed. Not only is he a multi-instrumentalist as capable as he is versatile plus an engaging lead and harmony singer, he's also a songwriter well-versed in a range of music including folk, rock, bluegrass and country. Of equal and perhaps even greater importance is Hillman's ability to forge a ...

Read "John McLaughlin's American Farewell Tour with Jimmy Herring" reviewed by Alan Bryson

Nearly five decades have passed since John McLaughlin set foot in America as a relatively unknown musician to join the fusion band Lifetime, with the great drummer Tony Williams and equally great organist Larry Young. Two days later he was in the studio with Miles Davis recording In a Silent Way. The breadth and scope of ...

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 ...
