Cratedigger: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, "Deja Vu"


dejavu

They were called the American Beatles. No one took that too seriously, but for a time they were the biggest band in the world, leaping into the vacuum created by the dissolution of the famous Liverpool quartet. For some, they were the classic supergroup, with four bona fide stars (hey, the Hollies had a lot of hits). For others, they were the personification of rock and roll excess. All of that means nothing to me because I write about music, and when it comes to music, you either have it, or you don’t. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young had it, in spades.

Soul Serenade: Bobby Brown, "Every Little Step"

bobbybrown

OK, I admit it. I know fuck-all about Bobby Brown. Week after week I use this space to pontificate about the great soul music of the past. You put up with it because I provide you with some pretty cool songs to download. If you’ve been following along, you already have the makings of a pretty good soul music compilation. This week, as a result of my overwhelming need to watch every moment of the World Cup, and my even more overwhelming need to earn a living, I’ve run out of time. So, this one’s a softball, well out my usual strike zone.

CD Review: Oasis, "Time Flies ... 1994-2008"


oasistimeflies

“Oasis will become the premier gilt-edged rock ‘n’ rollers of the age; they will irreversibly change the way you walk and talk, the way you dress … the future’s assured. The past is gone. This is now. Listen. That’s the story.”
Was NME right when they wrote this in 1995? Well yes … and no. For a few years back in the ’90s, Oasis was the biggest band in the world, unless of course you include the United States as a part of the world. While the band was able to fill arenas here, they never attained the level of success that they did in England and the rest of the world.

Live Music: 2010 Non-CommVention


Simchock_Legend

Non-Comm is the annual Triple A radio conference hosted by WXPN in Philadelphia, and held at that city’s wonderful venue, World Cafe Live. The conference draws radio programmers from all over the country for a series of panels, seminars, and live music performances over the course of two and a half days. Since most artists are interested in an opportunity to impress radio people, the musical lineup tends to be strong every year, and features artists who would not normally be playing a venue the size of World Cafe Live. Best of all, tickets for most of the Non-Comm events are available to the general public.
