Allman Brothers Band ~ Down In Texas ’71

What a nice change of pace to hear the Allman Brothers with a rare album featuring Duane Allman. I really like the Allman Brothers. There is mostly good with this album, but 1 bad thing. The bad thing could not … Continue reading

Dr. John ~ Gumbo Blues

Another great album from Dr. John. Other than some hits that I heard growing up, I’ve never really listened to Dr. John. When he made his come-back, I listened to that album, which I really enjoyed. That was sometime around … Continue reading

Morse, Portnoy, George ~ Cov3r To Cov3r

Krief ~ Chemical Trance

  This album went into different directions for me. This starts off with a psychedelic 1960’s Pink Floyd sound, then as the album continues, it goes off into a John Lennon sound. At first I wasn’t quite there with it, … Continue reading

Iron City Houserockers ~ Have A Good Time (But Get Out Alive)

  This album, which was originally recorded in 1977, has finally reared it’s head. This album reminded me very much of Thin Lizzy, but they do use piano, where Thin Lizzy doesn’t. It’s not the best album that I’ve heard, … Continue reading
