Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on


A trio of good things

JUSTIN CURRIE The Great War - Rykodisc

The Great Cynic is back with more tales of love and woe which provide thought-provoking rationale for the heartbroken and lonely to delve into while the happier among us are quick to become thankful what for what we have.

This is filled with instant hooks, wonderful vocal tone and delivery, and the sense that you're in the presence of a guy who deserves a greater audience and a nice girlfriend.

If you like pop music sung by a great singer (Elvis Costello, Paul McCartney, Neil Finn), or you're thinking that you've heard this voice before (think Del Amitiri), jump on board.

“You’ll Always Walk Alone” sounds like the lost cousin of “The Long and Winding Road.”

Songs to catch: “A Man With Nothing,” “At Home Inside Of Me,” “Can’t Let Go Of Her Now.”

BODEANS Mr. Sad Clown - 429 Records

A wide range of emotion among the songs.  The lyrics are heartfelt and self- observant.  Love the production. Very immediate with a lot of depth.

We’ve got groove, jingle-jangle, loud drums and all of the things that make the BoDeans great mixed with a healthy dose of maturity.  There are many moments which recall past albums, which in this case is a good thing.

The guys still have it together.  Fans will not be disappointed and novices should check them out.

Songs to catch: “Stay,” “Say Goodbye,” “Today,” “Feel ‘Lil Love.”

JOHNNY WINTER Live Through the 70s - MVD Visual

This is a progressive look at Johnny Winter reaching his prime during the 1970s. 111 minutes of greatness in black and white and color.

Seven segments from 1970-79 exhibit his love for both hard rock and blues and his mastery of both.  Highlights include footage from the “Beat Club,” “Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert” and “PBS Soundstage.”

“Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo” sung by a dude in platform shoes and a top hat whippin’ out a ton of wicked guitar is still killer 37 years later.

    That is some of the best, super-charged, premium unleaded, John Lee Hooker Blues you’ll ever hear. Winter was/is a true blues geetar hero. Soem cats just don’t get their due when it comes to the pantheon of super-slingers.

    He is a “super”-slinger, too. Dig that cape.
