Show#225 - Tinsley Ellis (2/19/15)
Georgia bluesman Tinsley Ellis has carved out a name for himself in the last 25-30 years as a searing guitarist and expressive vocalist.  His live shows have hit all 50 states, and he still plays around 150 gigs a year.  His latest offering, Tough Love, is arguably his finest to...
Show #224 - Spain (Josh Haden) (2/5/15)
Spain's debut album came out in 1995.  Blue Moods of Spain was so different, with it's quiet mood and slowed-down tempos, that it spawned a new genre, slo-core. Now, the band is back after a short hiatus with Sargent Place, their most focused album to date.  We talk with leader...
Show #223 - Gary DeCarlo of Steam (1/20/15)
It's one of the strangest stories of any #1 hit.  "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" was credited to a fictitious band called Steam, but it was actually recorded by vocalist Gary DeCarlo and some studio musicians.  But, because of some bizarre circumstances, he wasn't able to take credit...
Show #222 - Lisa Mills (1/6/15)

Cut Pieces: A Tribute to Yoko OnoVarious Artists - Cut Pieces: A Tribute to Yoko Ono (Main Man Records) review

Seriously - one of the best tribute albums we’ve heard in years

 

View the Amazon entry for this album

The problem with most tribute albums is that they suck.  What was once an unique idea has now been beat to death.  And the end result is usually the same: it just makes you want to go listen to the original artist.  That’s why Cut Pieces: A Tribute to Yoko Ono is such a welcome surprise.  An eclectic array of artists each give their individual spin on this polarizing figure’s music.  What you get is a great collection of songs - whether you like Yoko Ono or not.
