...to jack rose's kensington blues on vinyl. funny how one record can define an artist, even one that recorded prolifically (which jack unfortunately didn't live long enough to do). think bola sete's ocean, or sonny sharrock's ask the ages.
also: the first small faces album, on 180 gram vinyl that's like a damn manhole cover. as i wrote elsewhere, "the perfect blend of mod pop with r&b-based, feedback-laced rave-up ramalama."
I'm writing an autobiography in record reviews. I blog at
I've written about music for publications (hard copy and online)
including the New York Observer, Dallas Observer, Fort Worth Weekly, I-94 Bar, First Church of Holy Rock and
Roll, Polish Jazz (Poland), Shindig (UK), Funhouse (Italy), and The Big Takeover.
