    Charleene Closshey : Talk About Love (Music from No Postage Necessary)

    Charleene Closshey stars in No Postage Necessary as the female lead Josie. She’s missing her husband and wary of romantic opportunities. As her life begins to change, she opens up and discovers new things about herself. While that is impressive, it also reveals something quite novel about the use...
  • JANE'S ADDICTION - ALIVE AT TWENTY-FIVE 3

    JANE’S ADDICTION – ALIVE AT TWENTY-FIVE

    JANE’S ADDICTION – ALIVE AT TWENTY-FIVE REVIEWED “Jane’s Addiction – Alive at Twenty-Five” is a rather amazing live concert performance. Plus, you get many interviews with Perry Farrell and the band talking about the history of their first major album. I just wish that a concert performance of this...

    SUPER APE RETURNS TO CONQUER (LEE SCRATCH PERRY & SUBATOMIC SOUND SYSTEM)

    SUPER APE RETURNS TO CONQUER REVIEWED At 81, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry returns with Super Ape Returns to Conquer. If you can handle abstract funk, this will be for you. Otherwise, there’s so much experimental jamming going on that it might overwhelm you. It’s neat to see where Dub began,...
  • JOHN COLTRANE - TRANE 90 7

    JOHN COLTRANE – TRANE 90

    TRANE 90 REVIEWED “Trane 90” has been my go-to Thanksgiving music, as I work on a ton of material. While I was never super into Jazz, I could appreciate Coltrane’s flow. The guy starts his career as a sideman making Monk and Davis sound amazing. Hell, most of the...
  • JUDI DENCH'S EXITS AND ENTRANCES 9

    JUDI DENCH’S EXITS AND ENTRANCES

    EXITS AND ENTRANCES REVIEWED “Exits and Entrances” is the pinnacle of the EMR Dench Classics releases. While no new ground is broken, we get to listen to the best of Shakespeare recited by the Denchs and friends. I’ve been enjoying the recent Shakespeare birthday celebrations and celebrities reciting...
  • SPOT THE LOONY (GRAHAM CHAPMAN) 11

    SPOT THE LOONY (GRAHAM CHAPMAN)

    SPOT THE LOONY REVIEWED “Spot the Loony” is a CD compiled from Chapman’s 1988 college speaking stops. The disc opens up with an invitation for the audience to swear and yell at him. Then, he explains his past and talks about his friends. Honestly, the majority of the...
  • JOBRIATH A.D. 13

    JOBRIATH A.D.

    ”Jobriath A.D.” is a weak documentary paired with an amazing album. The effort was to tie the music into recollections of the guy who was Bowie before Bowie. However, no one seems to remember the real Jobriath. There’s a lot of talk about how he was victimized as...
  • STRAY CATS: LIVE AT ROCKPALAST 15

    STRAY CATS: LIVE AT ROCKPALAST

    The Stray Cats have delivered two amazing open-air concerts from 1981 and 1983. While everyone might not be a fan of Stray Cats or Brian Setzer, this release creates something astonishing. It crafts two identical shows across two years. Across the DVD and the CDs, you see something...
  • EASY SKANKING IN BOSTON '78 (BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS) 17

    EASY SKANKING IN BOSTON ’78 (BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS)

    INSIDE ANDERSONVISION’S MUSICAL TASTES Bob Marley is an acquired taste. I say that knowing his impact on bringing Reggae and World Music to a wider stage. But, he is also a guy that had a short career based on the same four song rotation. Start the hate mail, kids....
