Mike Bloomfield left this planet far too early. He was an amazing guitarist.

Great collection of music that's well suited for relaxing on a boat, anchored at a beautiful location, with your favourite alcoholic beverage in hand. If you like Les Baxter, Gene Rains, or Robert Brasnin, you'll enjoy this cd.

Awesome recording by a very talented lady. Her bluesy tracks are stunning. As are her folky tracks, such as Ten People. I will definitely explore more of her music.

2.0 out of 5 stars More of the Same, Nov. 13 2011
This review is from: Grace For Drowning (Audio CD)
There is no question in my mind that Steven Wilson is a genius. He crafts the most amazing, layered compositions of anyone in the world of rock today. Unfortunately, it seems that since Porcupine Tree's "Fear of a Blank Planet", his creative juices have waned a little. "Grace for Drowning" is not a step forward, but a step sideways, because it seems that much of what is on these discs we've heard before. The album is accessible, and the price is right, but don't expect something special.

3.0 out of 5 stars Falls Short, Dec 13 2009
This review is from: The Live Anthology (Audio CD)
This anthology would be vastly improved if the noise of the crowds were filtered out more. Granted, this is an anthology of live music, but for me, I want to hear more of the music and less of the audiences. The Doors were able to strike the perfect balance with recordings of their live performances. The audiences did not overwhelm the music. Also, when I saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers live, they did some incredibly mesmerizing and simply awesome extended versions of songs from their studio albums. This anthology has little of that. There are 18 minute versions of "Breakdown" floating around on bootleg albums which are much superior to the version on this anthology. The extended version of "Crystal River" on the Mudcrutch Live album is an example of what could have been done with some of the Heartbreakers material. Anyway, for die-hard Tom Petty fans, this collection of recordings should be satisfactory.
