At the local Salvation Army store today, I found a CD called "WARM." It's an acronym of the last names of the four musicians on it, including Mike White who my wife used to work for as a secretary. Kansas City jazz at its best! It's a lovely recording too, at the thrift $1.99.
EDIT: I was cleaning some label goo off the jewelbox just now, and noticed that this was a GRAMMY NOMINEE!
Commander Cody & The Lost Planet Airmen also covered it in the early 70s - the copy I have is on the 1973 live album (Sleazy Roadside Stories) recorded at the legendary Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, TX.
Years ago I bought an LP of the "Siena Pianoforte" - an old and very ornate piano...once owned by the King of Italy. The tone was wonderful. Rather than drag Barb downstairs to hear the LP, I looked it up on Ewetoob, and here it is. The photo at least, is better than the LP jacket.
New EP coming from Ringo. And check the last sentence out!
ringostarrmusic Today Ringo Starr announces his newest EP, cleverly-named 'EP3,' featuring four brand-new tracks with longtime collaborators Steve Lukather, Linda Perry, Dave Koz, José Antonio Rodriguez, and Bruce Sugar!
With Ringo's instantly-recognizable vocals, feel-good lyrics, and easy-breezy melodies, EP3 releases on September 16 to stream and download and listen to on CD, followed by cassette and vinyl coming this Fall.
I picked up my used copy of "Never Cry Wolf" today - it's highly readable, and Mowat has quite a low-key sense of humour, besides a gentle contempt of most scientists and bureaucrats. He's written more books than you can shake a stick at...
