Marina on the phone: "Hi- is this Jeff Bezos? Yeah, it's me, Marina. Listen, I'm having a little problem with this guy. Yeah, Charles. I know. Yes, a Prime Member. Same one. Listen, can you do me a favor? Hold off on sending him my new release? Just a week or two. Uh-huh. I just want....yeah, I know! I just want to give the local authorities a little time. Yeah. They're going to try to come up with some evidence. I know! Oh My God, me too! Yeah, they just need something that will stick. The guy's like Teflon. Really? You don't mind? Jeff, you're awesome! Love you too!"

Holy crap, they sure are. That is perfect power pop. I had heard of them a long time ago via Pandora but somehow never gotten any of their CDs.

If I were in a band, this is what I'd want it to sound like. Awesome.

Recently, I've purchased and have been listening to:

Tell 'Em What Your Name Is! by Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears. Kind of a throwback to a bluesy-Funky James Brown-with-Guitar-type of sound. I like it... it's fun.

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Greatest Hits. I had an earlier "Best of", but admit to being a sucker for some of their slow ballads (Under the Bridge, Scar Tissue, etc) which didn't appear on the earlier disc.

Keb' Mo's debut. For whatever reason, I never purchased any Keb' Mo'. But hearing more and more from him on Pandora, I went for this disc. All acoustic, Mississippi blues. Nice.

Duke Meets the Earl: Ronnie Earl and Duke Robillard. Slow-burn blues interplay between two master guitarists. Boston and Providence based, so I'm lucky enough to have seen these guys in small venues on several occasions.

Warren Haynes: Live At The Moody Theater (2CD + 1DVD). I've been running the DVD in the background in my office quite a bit over the last several days. Camerawork and mixing is only "Good", but the sound quality is nice!

This morning, I just scored Gov't Mule tix for a local June Show.

Good stuff Mark!

Regarding Keb Mo, a must have disc is from 'Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues' series 'Keb Mo' edition...

Awesome disc that never gets old.

Thanks, Rick! I have that one in my Amazon cart already. Along with the 200 or so other things!

Every time I'm listening to Pandora and a great track comes on, I click "Buy CD Now at Amazon". Later, I go through and see if I'd like the whole CD or just that one track.

I still end up with lots in my basket!

I had some chores to do around the house last night, so I put Fresh Aire I-VI on my Squeezebox playlist and got it done.

The Dø - Both Ways Open Jaws

Has some pretty cool moments, but I'll have to give it closer attention another day. I'm not sure how many repeat listens I'll need.

Check out this live performance of a song from the album: "The Calendar"

I have both CDs and a couple of his other ones as well, but to me his self-titled CD is the best.

MarkS:

Glad that you enjoy The Earl & The Duke. It's been one of my favourites for some time now.

Good blues that are very well recorded...
