5.0 out of 5 stars The Mat and Towel for Yoga Fans, February 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After dealing with a cheap yoga mat for more than a while, I decided I was hooked and needed a quality mat and towel. This mat and the towel fit my needs perfectly. I have traction in down dog, but mobility in moving to other poses. The mat feels luxurious when I'm lying on it, a nice feel for a old fat guy's tired bones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better and Better, April 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The first episode of "Justified" introduced me to what's become "ganstagrass." A long-time fan of steel guitar drenched country music, an active ignorer of rap music, my musical sensibilities were twisted into new shapes. After getting Rench's first CDs, then buying each Gangstagrass CD as it came out, my appreciation for this melding of old and new grew. This latest Gangstagrass CD raises the bar to unexpected heights. Each song stands on its own as a powerful comment on today's world as it mixes assorted rappers, Rench's unique vocals, timely female voices, and the essential instruments of bluegrass. Be sure to listen through to the final hidden track, a magnificent adaptation of an American classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greg Kihn Rocks!, January 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Roadrunner (MP3 Music)
Greg Kihn and his band create a fine cover of Jonathan Richman's best rocker. Faithful to the Modern Lovers' version with plenty of groove, it becomes a worthwhile addition to the list of "best covers ever." Sadly, it's probably the last time Greg Kihn shook his body this hard. The tune is not available on iTunes, so getting it through Amazon.com made my day.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cool Idea, But..., November 11, 2008
What a good idea - a mystery peopled by Bob Dylan characters uttering the occasional Dylan pearl. However, when the mystery sort of parallels Dylan's life - sort of! - and the non-Dylan dialogue is pedestrian, wading through this gets pretty boring. I don't give up on many books, but after about 125 pages, I just wasn't interested any more. I've got too many great books waiting for me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Wordy, Wordy, Wordy, November 11, 2008
Surely I was the only person in Springfield, Missouri in 1967 reading "Crawdaddy." If I hadn't been getting those East Coast hippie rags (the "East Village Other" anyone?), I'd never have known someone was publishing the commentaries us rock 'n' roll buddies used to consume the nights while the record player turned. The guy who stocked the record department at Kresge's knew I would be the first customer in Tuesday mornings to get the new Doors, Spencer Davis Group, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Jimi Hendrix Experience albums, each costing $2.98 plus tax. It was "Crawdaddy" that told me to make these morning trips so I could spend the day playing the new albums.

Reading these issues of "Crawdaddy" now kindles plenty of memories - stories I've told over the years that came from those pages - but I really have to wonder if I read those dreary page-after-page meanderings by Jon Landau and Richard Meltzer. "Raunch epistomology," "raga rock," Otis Redding compared to Plato? Hey, just dig the enthusiasm and use the book to remind you of albums you need to play again.

3.0 out of 5 stars One Great Hard-to-Find Song!, November 11, 2008
This review is from: Bitter Sweet (Audio CD)
"What A Girl Can't Do" is one of those 60's songs bands still play when they want the crowd to cheer. It's one of those songs you played on the jukebox at the all-night diner downtown when staying up all night was a rock 'n' roll given. It's also one of those songs really hard to find today in any medium other than those remaining "Bitter Sweet" albums moldering in closets around DC. This CD rekindles the entire album, reminding us about how many bands in those days made one great song surrounded by mellow covers and originals. Still, the Hangmen deserve three stars as the birthplace of Grin, Claude Jones, and the Rosslyn Mountain Boys - plus carrying plenty of equipment for the Jefferson Airplane.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Best Live Album Ever!, June 4, 2008
This is the BEST live album ever recorded - not just one of the 50 in your Top Ten, not one of the 300 in your Top 100, but the absolute #1 live album ever! Delaney & Bonnie had a wonderful ability to gather talent around them. No wonder Joe Cocker stole this band and Lowell George took the heart of their next band.

However, when this album came out in 1970, Eric Clapton was the only name in the band most folks recognized. Eric is at his best here as "just one of the boys." Don't expect flashy solos, just 3 guitars (or is it 4 - George Harrison was on this tour too?) picking you up and whisking you away.

When "Things Get Better" starts, you'll say, "This is the hottest song I ever heard." Then it gets even better! By the time "Coming Home" has run over your brain, you'll just give in and hang on to the train barreling to rock 'n' roll nirvana. No rhythm section ever drove harder. I dare you to restrain yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Miss Him!, June 4, 2008
This review is from: Live in Europe (Audio CD)
Even 40 years later, you still wonder what Otis Redding might have accomplished if that plane hadn't messed up! Otis was the Muddy Waters of soul music - the absolute king who took everything he wanted and made it better. If you ever get the chance, tour the Stax Museum in Memphis, stand in that studio, listen to the recording session, and imagine you've found the secret to time travel. When I was there, several of us old guys had tears in our eyes imagining we had found our grail.

As great as Otis was in that studio, he was even better when he toured with Booker T & the MGs. With a crowd radiating joy, Otis led everyone to another level. On this CD, he doesn't just recreate some of the finest songs ever recorded, he makes them defining moments. I don't duplicate too many live and studio recordings of the same song on my iPod (there is a limit to how many songs you can put on that thing!), but all of these are on their with their studio partners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard Working Man, June 4, 2008
This review is from: Soul Man: Live In Japan (Audio CD)
I saw Otis Clay at Fitzgerald's in Chicago and I saw Al Green's band in action many years ago. Putting them together leads to some mighty fine soul music. The Hodges Brothers and Howard Grimes provide the groove and Otis sings those classics that make your legs move. "A Nickel and A Nail" and "Precious, Precious" may be really familiar, but you still want to sing and dance along. When true professionals record live music, the results stand out. Buy this CD!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother To Eat This Peach, March 11, 2003
This review is from: Georgia Peach (Audio CD)
The Flying Burrito Brothers' "Gilded Palace of Sin" was unlike anything else ever heard when it came out - plus the cover went somewhere none other ever had. Naturally Gram Parsons was at the heart of this still-vibrant, thrilling piece of music, but his partners made it the whole, scintillating, tasty peach. Critical to the album's identity is the sound of Sneaky Pete Kleinow's steel guitar - a yowling, searing sound carrying the desperation of sin city and salvation, despair and hope. As the Burritos became stale, the best thing they offered was Sneaky Pete's screaming steel, still making noises no other steel ever made.
Now we have this album, featuring Sneaky Pete and memorializing GP. Sadly, the entire album passes without one distinctive sound from the steel. It does contain "Wheels" and "Christine's Tune" from that first fresh Burrito album, but even they sink into the tepid waters Sneaky Pete and his friends use to wash these songs of any soul, feeling, or pain.
Save your money - there's a country band in a Holiday Inn near you that plays with as much spirit as these guys. Buy the band a Shiner Bock, then buy a copy of "Gilded Palace" and give it to someone who hasn't heard it. You will do yourself a big favor.
