The Beatles, 96/24 LPCM Blu-ray. Just don't tire of this album despite the decades I've been listening to it. Established a template for what adult Rock'n'Roll could look like (something I suspect Buddy Holly would have done earlier, if the music hadn't died). Also has the first (and best) killer side three: needle drop - Birthday - Yer Blues - Mother Nature's Son - Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey - Sexy Sadie - Helter Skelter - Long, Long, Long - needle lifts. After all these years it can still reveal something new, was noticing today what a beautiful love song I Will is, not just a pleasant interlude between Why don't we do it in the road? and Julie.

Great Wall of China is the sixty-eighth release and twenty-sixth soundtrack album by Tangerine Dream, released in 1999.

AllMusic Review:
The greatest aspect of a soundtrack by this legendary German electronic new age ensemble is that you don't need the visuals to fully appreciate the music. Tangerine Dream has had success with both mainstream films like Risky Business and interesting documentaries like this, and brings a blend of mystery, haunting melancholy and throbbing percussive energies to each scene depending on the necessity of the mood. The group is notorious for throwing stylistic curveballs, and it's ironic that only "Silence the Barking Monk" has any true Eastern tinge to it, with its hypnotic chimes and Asian-flavored string instruments. The rest of the collection ranges from the percussion-heavy, spacey symphonic "Meng Tian" (enhanced by emotional though distant ethnic vocal chant) to the contemplative, pop-oriented "Summer in Shauxi." It's all very interesting and enjoyable if you like TD already. But if you pick this one up thinking that the music's bound to be as exotic as the cover art, you might be a bit miffed.
Tangerine Dream is a German electronic music band founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese. The group has seen many personnel changes over the years, with Froese having been the only continuous member until his death in 2015.

Edgar Froese's son, Jerome Froese, was a band member from 1990–2006. Jerome appeared on the cover of the band's 1973 album, Atem, as an infant:

Born in 1970, Jerome started playing guitar and keyboard in 1982. In 1985, he began playing drums after he got a drumkit for Christmas. From here, he became proficient on both keyboards and guitar, leading up to his induction into Tangerine Dream. Froese's first guest appearance with the band was on their 1989 album, Lily on the Beach, playing guitar on "Radio City". His first official appearance was on Melrose (1990), appearing on tour with the band that same year. Following the departure of Paul Haslinger, Tangerine Dream continued as a two-piece father-and-son band with various musicians guesting in the studio and in concert.

Tangerine Dream are considered pioneers of the early days of electronica. Their albums had a pivotal role in the development of the German musical scene known as kosmische ("cosmic"). Their years with Virgin Records, produced albums that further explored synthesizers and sequencers, including the UK top 20 albums Phaedra (1974) and Rubycon (1975). The group also had a successful career composing film soundtracks, creating over 60 scores, which include those for the films Sorcerer, Thief, Risky Business, Flashpoint, The Keep, Firestarter, Legend, Three O'Clock High, Near Dark, Shy People, and Miracle Mile.

From the late 1990s into the 2000s, Tangerine Dream continued to explore other styles of instrumental music as well as electronica. Their recorded output has been prolific, including over one hundred albums. Their mid-1970s work has been profoundly influential in the development of electronic music styles such as new age (although the band disliked the term) and electronic dance music.

Edgar Frose was quoted by the BBC as having once said: "there is no death, there is just a change of our cosmic address". He was friends with David Bowie, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, George Moorse, Volker Schlöndorff, Alexander Hacke and Friedrich Gulda. David Bowie and Iggy Pop lived with Froese and his family at their home in Schöneberg before moving to their own apartment. Froese also helped Bowie with his recovery and introduced him to the Berlin underground scene.

Edgar Froese died suddenly in Vienna on 20 January 2015 from a pulmonary embolism at the age of 70.

The Rose Hotel is an album by American folk music artist Robert Earl Keen, released in 2009.

AllMusic Review:
The Rose Hotel is Texas songwriter Robert Earl Keen's first studio album since 2005's What I Really Mean; he released Live at the Ryman in 2006. In other words, it's been a while. Keen enlisted now-legendary fellow Texan Lloyd Maines to produce him this time out, and that was a solid decision -- Maines knows how to produce guitar sounds, acoustic, electric, pedal- and lap-steel, mandolins and banjos, as well as fiddles, and this set is full of them. Maines plays more than a few of those guitars himself. Marty Muse handled the pedal steel duties, longtime mate Rich Brotheron plays a slew of stringed instruments, and former Bad Livers member Danny Barnes handles banjo duties.

The material ranges from the title track, which is one of his spun-out story tunes that looks at a pair of lovers who can never quite connect as they think they're meant to, fueled by a shuffling rhythm, mandolins, Bukka Allen's accordion, and some electric guitars for support. The chorus "Sometimes you run, sometimes you stall, sometimes you don't get up at all/Sometimes you run, sometimes you fall" is catchy, and with a whining steel guitar, makes for another notch in his trademark tunes belt.

The cover of Townes Van Zandt's "Flying Shoes" is rocked up a bit, with a bassline that sounds like it would be more at home on a Brian Setzer Orchestra record than this one. And rock plays a real role here as it has on most of Keen's records for the past decade. "Throwin' Rocks" may have banjos and steel guitars, but it's pure Texas shuffle and boogie. "10,0000 Chinese Walk into a Bar" features guest vocalist Billy Bob Thornton on lead and harmony vocals in a duet with Keen on one of his trademark joke numbers. Greg Brown appears in the same capacity on "Laughing River," a song he contributed to the set which is, along with the title track, one of the album's clear standouts. An acoustic road song, it is fueled by an upright bass, a banjo, and a harmonica, and the two men singing together sounds backporch and natural. "On and On," is loaded with '70s-style country phase shifters on the steel and electric guitars, and feels out of time and space. "Village Inn" is another displaced travel number, a type of song that's a clear strength in Keen's stable, and this one measures up.
Robert Earl Keen (age 64) is an American singer-songwriter and entertainer. Debuting with 1984's No Kinda Dancer, the Houston native has recorded 18 full-length albums for both independent and major record labels. His songs have had cover versions recorded by many musicians, including George Strait, Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, The Highwaymen, Nanci Griffith, and the Dixie Chicks. Although both his albums and live performances span many different styles, from folk, country, and bluegrass to rock, he is most commonly affiliated with the Americana genre. Keen has toured extensively both in the US and abroad throughout his career, and was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012 along with Lyle Lovett and the late Townes Van Zandt.

Universal United House of Prayer is the fifth solo album by Buddy Miller, released in 2004.

AllMusic Review:
Buddy Miller issues a roots gospel album as his debut for New West. Miller effortlessly walks the line between the genre's styles, all the while stamping them with his own unique Americana trademark. Miller wrote or co-wrote eight of the set's 11 selections and employs a backing band of friends including Brady Blade, Steve Hindalong, Phil Madeira, Tammy Rogers, Byron House, Rick Plant, and (of course) Julie Miller and Emmylou Harris. But what sets it apart are the stellar talents of gospel vocalists Ann and Regina McCrary, who sing on all but two tracks. And speaking of vocals, Universal United House of Prayer is the first album that highlights Miller's usually unsung talent: his singing.

The album opens with "Worry Too Much," one of the many fine tunes by the late songwriter Mark Heard. It's deep in the blues gospel groove; a B-3 and Rogers' fiddle wind around the middle of the tune, underscored by Miller's gritty guitar licking the edges and punching the middle. Miller's singing, buoyed by the McCrarys' sublime chorus work, goes right to the grain in the lyric and tears at the heart of it. "Shelter Me," written with his wife, Julie, is a deep, bluesed-out funky church song. Buddy's voice professes and testifies his confidence in a God who holds the place of safety while imploring Him to continue, with the McCrarys carrying the refrain to the skies with their otherworldly harmonies and fills. Miller's guitar bites down hard, gritty, and greasy in the break with a droning B-3 giving him the foundation to riff on. The cover of Bob Dylan's historical antiwar tome "With God on Our Side" may feel, initially, like an anomaly here. But the sheer beauty and bewilderment in Miller's reading makes it a spiritual of a different kind. The hillbilly gospel of the Louvin Brothers is also represented by a fine version of "There's a Higher Power." The folksy country of "Fire and Water" and "Wide River to Cross," both written with Julie, simply and profoundly offer the poetic, stark, and harsh realities of life as they are transcended with hope and healing. In each case, the sheer simplicity in the presentation (the latter with Harris) is dignified, restrained, and utterly genuine. The rollicking country blues stomp of "Don't Wait" (written with Jim Lauderdale) brings the raw snarl of Saturday night regret as it gives way to Sunday morning redemption. The set closes Julie Miller's testifyin' "Fall on the Rock," an unabashed exhortation to Christian salvation that rocks, rolls, struts, and swaggers with crackling energy, passion, and pathos.

Universal United House of Prayer feels like it's the record Buddy's been waiting to make his entire career, and as such it is his finest moment.
Steven Paul "Buddy" Miller (age 67) is an American singer, songwriter, musician, recording artist and producer, born in Fairborn, Ohio, currently living in Nashville, Tennessee. Miller is married to and has recorded with singer-songwriter Julie Miller.

In 1975, he moved to Austin, Texas and played rockabilly music in Ray Campi's ("The King of Rockabilly") band. He auditioned for and played in a band with Julie Griffin (soon to be his second wife).

In 1980, they moved to New York City, and Miller formed the Buddy Miller Band, which included singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin on vocals and guitar. He also performed with Jim Lauderdale and Larry Campbell. Each Sunday, Miller performed in Kinky Friedman's band at the Lone Star Cafe.

I've spent a lot of time in Dallas/FW and San Antonio, but I was really looking forward to Austin. I was hoping to lineup for Austin City Limits tickets.

Not an album, but I found a book celebrating 25 years of Austin City Limits (now 45 years!), autographed by the author and photographer.

Hope you can make it another time. Tickets to ACL TV tapings are by online lottery, if you know your schedule ahead of time you can submit a free request. The shows are at a great venue for acoustics and sight lines.

I've seen one taping, for the Avett Brothers.

Thanks. Yes, from memory, I thought the original was heavier than 3. A knock-off mentioned online was 3.3 lbs. Couldn't find other weight references.
