Kenny Roby & Forest Sun: Kindred Spirits of Americana

Read "Kenny Roby & Forest Sun: Kindred Spirits of Americana" reviewed by Doug Collette


For all the attention garnered in recent years by the Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers, et.al., a raft of other Americana artists go largely unrecognized. The Felice Brothers top the list of the unsung nouveau folksters, but Kenny Roby and Forest Sun should be in that tally too: with the former's eponymous album and ...

Read "Springtime in New York 1980-1985: The Bootleg Series, Volume 16 (5CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette


Generally speaking, revelations abound within the various installments of The Bootleg Series, Bob Dylan's ongoing archive initiative, and Volume 16 is no exception. But in listening to Springtime in New York, 1980- 1985, the epiphanies come in slow bursts, flashing over the course of the five CDs to generate a cumulative momentum that reaches a flash-point ...

Bob Marley and the Wailers The Capitol Session '73 Mercury Studios 2021 Talk about buried treasure indeed! Bob Marley and The Wailers The Capitol Session '73 would not exist in this CD/DVD package (or it's other configurations) if not for a series of deceptively fortuitous events that occurred nearly a half-century ...

Feed Your Head: The Sound Field and Lauren Murphy

Read "Feed Your Head: The Sound Field and Lauren Murphy" reviewed by Doug Collette


As one of three lead vocalists and four composers in Jefferson Airplane at its peak of creativity, Grace Slick may not always get the respect and recognition she deserves in the annals of contemporary rock and roll.

Graham Parker: The Up Escalator - 40th Anniversary Edition

Read "The Up Escalator - 40th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette


It might well be an exercise in futility to find a more potent transitional album than Graham Parker's The Up Escalator. At least that's what The 40th Anniversary Edition suggests, and in no uncertain terms.
