Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Footprints” by Miles Davis Quintet


They were known as Miles Davis’ second great quintet featuring Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Wayne Shorter on sax and Tony Williams on drums, but to some, they were his most important lineup, featuring Miles surrounded by a talented group of musicians who were much younger than he was. The first great […]

Movie Review – The Three Stooges


There is hardly a day that goes by that something doesn’t remind me of the Three Stooges. Very possibly because I have pictures and posters of them all over my house. But also because so many of their lines pop up into my head and I love using them in conversation. Needless to say that […]

Vinyl Frontier: Retro Reviews: Manic Street Preachers – Postcards From A Young Man


By Andrew David James …When Manics song writer Nicky Wire announces their new album is the band’s last attempt at ‘mass communication’ it sets the average long term fan of the band on edge.Manic Street Preachers should not be consciously trying to communicate with the masses.

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Barracuda” by Cliffie Stone


Talk about your double entendre record…well, I’ve never! This rude but somewhat right Rockabilly stomper by Cliffie Stone would never get passed the censors of today.

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “He’s My Baby” by Jean Shepard


There was an interesting time during the late 1950s where straight Country ‘n’ Western music melded with then-burgeoning Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rhythm ‘n’ Blues, giving birth to classic Rockabilly. Capitol records was a hotbed for Rockabilly recording crossover artists like Ferlin Husky, Faron Young, Wanda Jackson, Hank Thompson, Jerry Reed, Gene Vincent and Skeets […]

Movie Review – Titanic in 3D


When George Lucas had a chance, he made some minor tweaks to the Star Wars movies. More color and new scenes were added to his sci-fi classic. Fifteen years after James Cameron’s blockbuster “Titanic” became the first movie to gross a billion dollars, the famed director had a chance to fix inaccuracies or take advantage […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Sixteen Saltines” by Jack White


He may have changed his color schemes from red and white to blue for his first solo record, but this song isn’t a White of a different color musically…and that’s a good thing! As the NY Times recently stated, he’s a “Jack Out-Of-The-Box” when it comes releasing records. In an effort to try alternative means […]

Well, 40 years later and now we have “TAAB2” or “Thick As A Brick 2” […]
