"I'd second Mark's emotion on "Power Pop Prime Vol 7". I got my copy on Friday and stayed up late into the night reading and listening. So many great CDs that I forgot I owned, and lots more to buy. I…"
"Does anyone know where I can find CDs by the Boston band O-Positive? Toyboattoyboattoyboa is pretty easy to get, but the other two Only Breathing/Cloud Factory and Home Sweet Head are really hard to find."
"Wow, thanks! I really appreciate the update. Sandbox is such a great album, I'd love to hear more. Now if we could only get more from Brad Jones and Brian Charles who also each put out one great album and nothing since."
"Since you asked, Erik Voeks lives in the Kansas City area and use to run an indie record store before it closed. I spoke with him at the store several times and expressed to him how much I liked his "Sandbox" lp, as well as encouraging him…"

The mailman brought a real gem today. I’m not a music journalist, but here’s my attempt at a review.

Since you asked, Erik Voeks lives in the Kansas City area and use to run an indie record store before it closed. I spoke with him at the store several times and expressed to him how much I liked his "Sandbox" lp, as well as encouraging him to release another album. We bonded over a mutual admiration for Elvis Costello, XTC, Jason Falkner and Jellyfish among others. He has been recording and playing live recently. Here is a link to a relatively recent live performance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3kONsC8Nw0
I haven't been able to see him live yet but hope to soon.
"Lullaby for the Working Class
Spare, mellow, almost ambient alt-country band from the late 90s.
I'm almost embarrassed that I'm only discovering them now.
Some loose personnel associations with Bright Eyes.
Boogaloo Omnibus & Girlsoul have lost all their sense & invited me to blast a special birthday set of old 45s with them! With Josh Styles, an innocent bystander, on the bill, too! They call it Discophonic Walk & it’s Friday, May 24, 11PM-4AM @ The Commodore, 366 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11211. FREE!See More
"It's truly incredible, how his attitude seems to have changed. He PERFORMED with the remaining Monkees, something I swear he said he would never do again after the '80s. It is baffling. As for the meeting, he was so gracious and answered…"
"Harry, I was moved to buy that song based upon your post. And Anna, it is WAY cool to meet Mr. Nesmith. In all of my readings, he was very reclusive and didn't make public appearances...and damn sure didn't reaffirm his former…"
"......hey Eddie....I hope we don't crash cuz (Stan breaks into song...) "I Wanna Go Back!"......you know what I mean pal....I need the plane to "Take Me Home Tonight!" (rim shot.....tip your bartenders..)"
So Mike Nesmith. Yeah. WTF, right? Private, reclusive, mysterious for many years. A couple of years back, he got on Facebook and he posts long, winding tales about himself, his dogs, his home, his past, and a really lovely Mother's Day post last weekend. Photos go up. The whole thing. It's like he disappeared and then came back on his own terms. I didn't know how to take it. I'm a huge Monkees fan, no doubt. And, being a woman/girl of a certain age, I have a favorite and that favorite is Mike.…See More
