"I bought this album earlier in the year(Warm Soda) and it's one of my faves so far...it's a low-fi affair and, generally, I don't mind that. Though, I found myself wishing most of the songs on the album had a meatier, fuller sound,…"

"Well, that sounds like a "Not Lame Label" best-of list to me.   (including the Ice Cream Hands album,w hich NL released in 1997, in an updated, superior fashion).   What exquisite taste you exhibit, James.  ;-P"

"I loved those early Beach Boys years - as a kid. But they never aged well once I was a teenager, too. Nice, happy, chippy songs - but in terms of higher song-craft, 1963-1965 don't provide structure to the argument of Wilson being the insanely…"

Profile Information

My favorite music artists are....
Always hate this question - funny for a guy who's been working in the music biz for over 20 years. I'm a pantheist. I worship at the altar of pretty much everything but I have serious fetish for early/mid 70s hard rock(the more obscure, the better), early 70s funk 'n soul, Stax/Volt, power pop(of course), AM Radio circa 1971, prog rock, 20th century classical music, Miles Davis(he stands alone in his own genre), 70s singer/songwriter, late 70s/early 80s AOR - uh, okay, the skeletons are starting to come out of my closet, best I stop.

All Time Fave Artists: Big Star(always my #1), Be Bop Deluxe, The Nits, XTC, Sparks, Black Sabbath, 70s Judas Priest, Yes, Genesis(last album I love? "Wind And Wuthering'".
Interests & Hobbies
Big reader, mostly rock bios and music anthologies, business books, personal development has been hot of late. Drinking good tequila, always. Living in Colorado for so long, lots of hiking and skiing are still big - don't get old, get rock, right? Must say the 48 yr old Bruce would kick the 28 yr old Bruce's ass on the slopes. Hanging with my wife and kids w/ whatever we're doing *is* a hobby, the more I parent. Still have a teenager who digs being with her Dad so riding that one as long as it goes - hoping the one following will feel the same.

That said, I am looking for parenting advice in the "How To Raise A Rock 'n Roll Kid" column as my kids just don't rock hard enough yet.

Rock And Roll Monks...

Okay, the "Hallelujah" chorus is not rock 'n roll...but the attitude with these highs school students doing some classical 'glee'-ness is, imho. It gets better as it goes on. 'tis the season, too.…

Thanks for the birthday greeting Bruce. Shame about Not Lame - one of the great labels of our time! My old print catalog is a favorite music keepsake.

A review of The Allman Brothers Band -One Way Out-

This is one of the finest books that I have read in a long time. This book is fascinating and doesn’t let up.
