Re: What song are you listening to right now?

not their greatest version ever but it's really good to see them reunited after all these years. I am glad that both Micks decided to bury the past. No Bobby Keys on the sax but it's decent enough. RIP Charlie and Bobby

I've always felt the best Stones music was with Mick Taylor on guitar.  He jumped in and got out at the right time.
Good video choice for the reunion.

Metallica: Fixxxer (San Francisco, CA - December 17, 2021) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCwcjfxvOCU

  is this Greeny?

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

well this was a real family get together a few years back. Eugene normally plays bass but here decided to tackle the guitar, fairly decent I must say. On the back side of the stage in the suit and pork pie hat is Daniel Gales, Eric's other half brother besides Manuel who passed away in 2002. Daniel can play a little guitar himself, Eric has put him on stage occasionally

This is from the Good for Sumpthin' release

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Hands up anybody here who’s heard of Harlis Sweetwater..... That’s the band and not some new soft drink. I've checked back through the forum archive, but couldn't find anything.

The other night, my gig-buddy Michael passed on a couple of CDs that he tried but just couldn’t hook into but thought might rattle my tin ears. And you know what, they did.

So who, or what is Harlis Sweetwater? Well, he hails from Huntington County, CA, belied by the rich, raucous Stax/Memphis sound of the band; a thumping five-piece,  Led by deep-voiced, broad-shouldered, sideburn-sporting Harlis Sweetwater, the group play honest-to-goodness, sweaty, soul music, and invariably features a horn section. Harlis has been recording/playing for almost 30 years now, starting out with the soul band Barrelhouse before stepping out in 2012 with his own band and cracking debut EP Lights Goin’ Down., one of the discs I was given.

Fast forward 5 years to the 2nd disc, and while the line-up may have changed a little (sax replacing trombone), the message stays the same and is the title of the album - Holler Stomp & Growl. You could easily draw a parallel with NJ’s Billy Walton Band, certainly for the “Friday night party” vibe.

Eric Gales - My Own Best Friend (Crown) - beautiful

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

celebrating all things Eric Gales now with the release of Crown let's go back in the time machine to 2001. This is with Manuel on additional guitar and Eugene on bass, Eric on lead guitar and vocals. So it's still the Gales Brothers just not released as such, and I suspect but don't know for sure that it's Hubert HBomb Crawford on the drums

Goodbye June off their new album.  "Three Chords".  This is a fun band to mindlessly Rock.

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

so far this my fav from The Zealot Gene, but I have yet to listen to all of it thoroughly. Joe Parrish does an excellent job with guitar on many of the songs

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Nick Johnston again only this time live. He is a phenomenal guitarist, songwriter and keyboard arranger. No he doesn't sing, neither does Joe Satch, Guthrie Govan, or Eric Johnson although Eric has tried several times with little success. Because of Nick I bought my grandson a Schecter guitar for Christmas. If it's good enough for him then it works for me

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Put together by Mike Portnoy, basically just a spinoff of Dream Theater without the irritating vocals. They enlisted Tony Levin to play bass and the Chapman stick. Petrucci on guitar, they are excellent I must say

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

what a great album this was from the 80s, I went right out and bought it immediately. He has received a lot of bad press through the years, mostly unwarranted. Here with the talented Rob Wasserman on bass and Mark Knopfler on guitar

Bernard Butler - People Move On (2022 re-issue)

Bernard Butler should be much better known; probably the best guitarist to emerge from the 1990's Brit-pop scene but seems to be much overshadowed by the likes of Noel Gallagher; maybe Suede peaked too early.

Anyway, after a notable guitar-slinger for hire stint, Butler, much against his original intent, cut this debut solo album in 1998, just before working with soul vocalist David McAlmont and another try with Suede. I said it then and I'll say it now, the album is a little gem; there are tender, fragile moments and songs so bombastic they bounce your speakers across the room. Not only, but it showcases what a talented multi-instrumentalist & writer the guy is.

Then, 20 years after it's original release, something started a mind-worm while considering putting down new material and eventually morphed into Butler taking to the studio last year, with all the tapes from the People Move On sessions and doing over the vocal tracks. As the box set contains both the 1998 and 2021 takes on the album, it's interesting to hear how the fragile, vulnerable adolescence has veered into a more worldly view, while moving in the same directions. And Butler's done a thorough job, even the singles and b-sides of the time have been given similar trteatment on a 3rd disc as well as a bonus disc of demos & sessions.

There's no particular genre you can pin this album to, but there's a bit something for everyone.

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

from 2015 in Frankfurt Germany, Robben never sounded better than with a big band sound behind him, very well recorded. Check out his beat up Tele, what great tone he gets out of it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjJLUFvUSNA

edit: this was a fantastic concert, I do love some good horns. However , the Frankfurt Radio people decided they would not release it on CD, nor on DVD. So what I did was to subscribe to hr - Bigband and now am getting all of it. If you are a big Robben Ford fan as I am you can certainly do the same. Hows about a Bob Dylan cover ?
