Woodstock—Back to the Garden: 50th Anniversary Experience

Read "Woodstock—Back to the Garden: 50th Anniversary Experience" reviewed by John Kelman

First things first. For all but the most committed of fans, knowledge of what transpired, how it transpired and when it transpired at the now-legendary 1969 Woodstock Music & Arts Fair has, despite a variety of initial, 25th and 40th Anniversary audio and video releases, been severely limited. As engaging, entertaining and well-constructed as these various ...

Nicola Conte: Let Your Light Shine On

Read "Let Your Light Shine On" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

One of the best parts of Let Your Light Shine On is how it plucks out musical threads from throughout the galaxy (more on that later) and knits them together into truly groovy, soulful cloth. But music is only one of many real good things this set has going on.

Light is the first ...

Michael Shrieve: Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder

Read "Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder" reviewed by Doug Collette

Despite a varied series of projects, prolific master drummer Michael Shrieve has maintained a comparatively low profile since his days as a member of the original Santana band. But with the reunion of that ensemble, the time's certainly right for him to step directly into the limelight with Spellbinder, which, even it doesn't exhibit the same ...

Different musical and personal objectives, plus ...

"Worlds Around the Sun" Reissued by Omnivore Recordings March 11

When listeners heard Santana play “Free Angela” on their classic 1973 release Lotus, few, if any, knew the song was originally released by its writer, Todd Cochran, a year before. Worlds Around the Sun was recorded and issued on Prestige Records in 1972 ...
