There is no other singer I know of that absolutely captures Frank Sinatra’s fabulous phrasing other than the very talented Harry Connick, Jr..
This man is a blessing that has thankfully continued the tradition of fine tuned vocalization.
If only one word could define the Everly Brothers it would be: HARMONY
For it would influence so many other musical/vocal groups that would follow them. In 1958 All I Have to Do Is Dream was the only single ever to be #1 on all of Billboard’s singles charts at the same time. In the UK it remain #1 for 6 weeks, 21 weeks on the singles chart. #1 R&B & Country.
If there is any singer who reminds me a bit of Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad it is this artist.
Richardson also has a vibrato ridden set of pipes, the music Blues Rock with the other tracks on the album fused with psychedelic, jazz & funk.
He went on to start the band The Tubes in 75′. I definitely like the 69′ vibe a lot better from this Arizona band.
Excellent artist from across our river here in Detroit.
Canadian (Windsor, Ont.) born Martin along with band-mates Stuart Chatwood and Jeff Burrows formed the real Tea Party in 1990.
Our nut case group here in America literally offered to buy their website domain name (they bought in 93′), worth over a $1 million US dollars. Chatwood stated “So much damage has been done to our name by this political movement that they considered selling but instead has since added the phrase “No politics… Just Rock and Roll” to their site in order to distance themselves from the US political group.
This Queen of Rock would have been 70 now. One can only wonder how much more she would have contributed and became had she lived beyond 27. Sadly a further explosion we never got to experience.
And why she was also called Queen of just Psychedelic Blues? It might have been the era, but this lady was 100% good old-fashioned low down dirty Mother F’N Blues. To me “Work Me Lord” was a Masterpiece.
Pipes, Talent and Real but all so alone.
One song on this album would ultimately define Janis for the song she sang was really about herself, Little Girl Blue.
Raw, Honest, Pure, Heart, Soul, Emotion… and Beyond Missed.
God I needed this…..
and they saved the best song for last.

Such great sadness within two days for the music world with the passing of Dick Clark and now legendary musician Levon Helm of “The Band”.
May 26, 1940 ~ April 19, 2012
He was 71 years old but some how it still felt like the days they all played at Woodstock in 1969. Ironically this is where Helm chose to reside, Woodstock, N.Y.
I will always love the earlier music from The Beatles.
The songs from this album when heard still breaks out the chills simply because I remember them as clearly today as when all of 6 years-old I heard them first.
Nothing better to revive your weary mind than laying back and filling your soul with some Blues.
So enjoy an hour and 40 mins. of them.
All the younger people know is this was the song that Baby and Johnny seductively danced to in his room in Dirty Dancing.
The voice behind the recording us older folks knew all to well.
Solmon Burke had a life time of Music behind him, way too many to even count. His journey on this earth left us Sunday Oct. 10th.
