Thumbs up

Eddie "Clean Head" Vinson was one of the finest Sax players of all time. Up there w/Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Sonny Stitt & Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. Got lucky today, found a double album Eddie Vinson Cherry Red Blues. Not only a great Sax player but a fantastic Blues R&B singer. Passed away July 4th 1988 at the age of 70. His signature song was Cherry Red a great tune.

Hadn't really listened to these two great albums from his time with Taj Mahal that much, so seemed like a good time to do so.

Yeah, such great music. He's really been consistently excellent since he began. Always enjoy revisiting his albums, when the inspiration strikes, or hearing ones I haven't.

Live the Love Beautiful is the 18th album from Drivin' N Cryin', released in June 2019.

Staccatofy Review: (9.2)
Live the Love Beautiful roster consist of Kevn Kinney on lead vocals, guitar hero Laur Joamets — an Estonian-born instrumentalist who first moved to America to perform with Sturgill Simpson, making his debut on the singer's Grammy-nominated Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, bass-playing co-founder Tim Nielsen, and longtime drummer Dave V. Johnson. The lineup may be revised, but the beating heart of Drivin N Cryin has just as much edge today as it did in 1985, when Kinney and Nielsen played their first show together.

Live the Love Beautiful captures the energy and electricity of DNC's live shows. Most of the 11 songs were captured in a series of live takes at Welcome to 1979 Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. There is always the hip spice of southern rock in DNC’s sound, which can be heard throughout the album.

Starting with the opening track, "Free Ain't Free," a populist anthem about everyday Americans, capitalist corporations, and the widening gap between the two. The album celebrates a life free of addiction with "Step by Step," gets political with "Spies," and takes a simple turn during "Over and Over." The driving force behind any great rock album is the guitar and Live the Love Beautiful has plenty of crunch, harmonized guitar solos, solid riffs, and some skilled slide guitar from Joamets. “Step by Step” strikes a solid balance of acoustic sounds with crunch guitar riffs set to a moving Southern Rock vibe.

The band’s sound is cohesive and balanced. The songwriting is strong with plenty of subtleties to bring a rewarding listening time and time again. Enjoy an American rock tradition built from experiences of decades on the road, live shows and rockin’ southern style with DNC’s Live the Love Beautiful. That’s the short of it!
My favorite band from college. I've been listening to them since 1985. Loving every album and solo release since then. The last time my wife and I saw them was in Atlanta in 1996, at the House of Blues during the Olympics... the night of the bombing. Our first night out after our first son was born... my inlaws enjoyed watching their first grandchild for a few days.

That newborn is now a college graduate. This weekend we all drove 12 hours to Alabama to see my ailing father for Father's Day. That alone made it a great Father's Day, but right before leaving for the trip, I saw that DnC was releasing a new album this week. When I ordered it, I saw they were playing on Saturday night just 20 miles from my parents' house! So my oldest son , my wife, and I got to see my favorite band. Here's one of my cell phone pictures from Saturday's concert...


This album is great!

Green River is the third studio album by American rock and roll band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1969.

It features two of the band's best-known songs, "Bad Moon Rising" and the title track, as well as the highly regarded "Lodi" and "Commotion". "Lodi" did not make the Top 40 but went on to become a rock radio staple and a fan favorite. It describes the plight of a down-and-out musician whose career has landed him playing a gig in the town of Lodi (pronounced "low-die"), a small agricultural city in California's Central Valley about 70 miles from Fogerty's hometown of Berkeley. After playing in local bars, the narrator finds himself stranded and unable to raise bus or train fare to leave. Fogerty later said he had never actually visited Lodi before writing the song, and simply picked it for the song because it had "the coolest sounding name."

Other significant tracks on the album include the Ray Charles cover "The Night Time Is the Right Time", continuing the Creedence tradition of including classic R&B and early rock and roll songs on their studio albums, as they had with Dale Hawkins' "Susie Q" and Little Richard's "Good Golly Miss Molly".

It was the second of three albums they released in that year. The band's single-mindedness and work ethic drew the ire of some other San Francisco-based bands, with drummer Doug Clifford recalling, "We went to see the local bands and they were so stoned they weren’t even in tune and they were really terrible...We made a pact on the floor of the Fillmore, right then, where we would do no drugs or alcohol. We decided to get high on the music, or get out of the business." Their musical discipline, coupled with Fogerty's prolific songwriting, would catapult the band to super-stardom.

Rolling Stone called it "a great album", stating "they are now creating the most vivid American rock since Music from Big Pink". AllMusic gave the album 5 stars (out of 5), stating: "If anything, CCR's third album Green River represents the full flower of their classic sound initially essayed on its predecessor, Bayou Country."

John Fogerty has stated many times that Green River is his favorite Creedence album, "Green River was my favorite song from the Creedence era, because it really had the whole Sun Records vibe to me – and the album, too."

John Fogerty – lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, piano, keyboards, harmonica, arranger
Tom Fogerty – rhythm guitar, except on side one, tracks 2-4
Stu Cook – bass guitar
Doug Clifford – drums

Green River was ranked number 95 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
A beautiful sounding, minty, original pressing.

Autographed by Stu Cook (bass) and Doug Clifford (drums)

50th Anniversary of this album!

Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 is the first album by Sérgio Mendes and Brasil '66, released in 1966.

Mendes said the song "Mas Que Nada" "was the first time that a song in Portuguese was a hit in America and all over the world". "Mas, que Nada!" was written and originally performed in 1963 by Jorge Ben on his debut album, which became Sérgio Mendes' signature song in his 1966 cover version. It was voted by the Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone as the fifth greatest Brazilian song.

Brazilians use Mas que nada (or just que nada) colloquially to disagree with someone. A fitting English translation might be a sarcastic "Yeah, right!". With many recordings, the title song is incorrectly written Mais que nada (Portuguese for "more than nothing") which would fundamentally alter its meaning. Also it should not be confused with the Spanish más que nada, which means "more than anything", or "above all", and is used in the sense of "mainly" or "principally".

Sérgio Mendes covered the song with his band Brasil '66 on their debut album Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 (1966). In the United States, the single reached number 47 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and number four on the Billboard Easy Listening chart. This 1966 version is the best-known and, to many, the definitive version of the song. In 1989, Mendes re-recorded the song; in Brazil, the song is also well known for being the theme song for the local television channel Globo's Estrelas. In 2006, Mendes again re-recorded the song, this time with The Black Eyed Peas and additional vocals by Mendes' wife, Gracinha Leporace, for his album Timeless and included in the 2011 animated film Rio (along with another version recorded in the style of Brasil '66)

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m...t-1967-731124/
Bandleader Sérgio Mendes, the godfather of bossa nova, was Brazil’s most celebrated artist in the Sixties. His most popular recording, “Mas Que Nada,” was originally penned and performed by singer-guitarist Jorge Ben, a former member of Mendes’ band. According to Ruy Castro’s 1990 book Bossa Nova: The Story of the Brazilian Music That Seduced the World, Ben went out for a haircut before a show in Los Angeles and, under America’s pervasive Jim Crow laws, the Afro-Brazilian was turned away. It was then that Ben allegedly dropped off the tour and bought a one-way ticket back to South America — his song, however, remained with Mendes.

That same year, a military junta took over Brazil, employing a fierce nationalism and anti-imperialism that eschewed all Western cultural influence. It was then that Mendes made a home in the United States where, with the help of Herb Alpert and his home label A&M Records, Mendes would assemble a band of Americans and Brazilian exiles called Brasil ’66. In their rendition of “Mas Que Nada,” Ben’s throaty wails are replaced by the discreet chirps of Lani Hall and Bibi Vogel, trailing after a brisk samba rhythm. Here, they are introduced by Eartha Kitt on her 1967 “Something Special” — in which she opened with a performance of “I’m a Different Kind of Cat” — praising them for offering “a new look, a new sound, a new approach” to entertainment.

Their debut record, Herb Alpert Presents: Sérgio Mendes and Brasil ’66, hit gold in the United States and ascend to the Top Ten of the Billboard 200. Meanwhile in Brazil, the anti-authoritarian, countercultural movement known as Tropicália was beginning to take shape, leaving the apolitical bossa nova era in the dust. The song remains a staple of Brazilian music history to this day. Mendes later re-recorded his hit in 2006 with the Black Eyed Peas, but the 1966 version only gets better with age.

The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2011.

My album has the incorrect typo for "Mais que nada".
