Topics I've Started
01 May 2013 - 07:52 AMI know there are a lot of Levon Helm fans here. This is a new film about him that I suspect we'll all want to see.
He was the real deal.
26 April 2013 - 06:23 AMFor your interest only. This is not intended to have any political context, but simply reflects the state of the music retailer sector of the economy right now.
23 April 2013 - 12:50 PMHow's this for a misleading description, from someone who represents himself as a Nashville dealer, no less? Did you know that a late-60's J-50 ADJ was one built with Advanced Jumbo characteristics, rather than an adjustable bridge model? LOL!
I did send him a terse but polite message asking him to do his homework and fix his listing. We'll see if anything happens. For some reason, this type of stuff really frosts me.
01 April 2013 - 09:23 AMPaul Williams, perhaps the first serious rock music critic and writer, died over the weekend. He founded "Crawdaddy" magazine when he was a 17-year-old college freshman, and went on to write some of the finest books about rock music of his generation. He was one of the first to take Dylan seriously as a writer/poet, and his multiple books on Dylan's music and performances are still classics of rock criticism.
He died of dementia, probably brought on by a serious head injury from a bicycle accident a number of years ago.

There are outlaws, and then there are OUTLAWS. The Prisonaires were a prisoner-created musical group signed by Sun in the early 1950's. Their most familiar composition would be "Just Walkin' in the Rain". The group consisted of several killers, a rapist, and a thief.
And one very nice Gibson archtop. I can't identify the fretboard inlays, but it is a big-bodied L-variant, maybe an L-7. Someone here will know. Gives a new meaning to the term "musical outlaw".
You can clearly hear that archtop in the original recording:
