Freebo “Something To Believe”

Freebo – Something To Believe In a cluttered world that seems to thrive on excess, self-promotion, and personal and political agendas, listening to Freebo and his new album is like riding on a cumulous cloud of peaceful awareness. Freebo, in the music business since the sixties, has been part of Bonnie Raitt’s band for more than a decade and has become a sought after session musician working with the elite of Rock & Roll aristocracy including Ringo Starr, John Mayall, Crosby Stills & Nash, Maria Muldaur, The Bluesbusters as well as many others. Since embarking on his own Freebo has released four albums of his own cosmic blend of country, rock, soul, and folk, ear pleasing genre defying music....

Paul Barrere’s Bluesbusters “Accept No Substitutes”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#406 in the Series) is Bluesbusters, Accept No Substitute I was really missing Little Feat in the mid-eighties when I first heard about The  Bluesbusters.  Like a good ol’ bowl of crawfish etouffee, let’s say they really hit the spot. If you don’t know about them, let me clue y’all in.  The Bluesbusters featured five very talented musicians that made their name mostly in other acts.  Paul Barrere was of course a lead vocalist, guitarist, slide guitarist in Little Feat.  On Keyboards was the late T.Lavitz. T spent most of his time in another great band, The Dixie Dregs.  Freebo was on bass. He previously added the boogie to the woogie of Ms....

Skeeter Davis and NRBQ “She Sings,They Play”

Posted 18 Jan 2011 in 80s, Albums of 1985, Albums of the 80s, Country, Pop

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#259 in the Series) is Skeeter Davis and NRBQ, She Sings, They Play. I’m really disappointed that I couldn’t find more videos for this album. This one is really special to me. NRBQ is one of my favorite all time bands. I love when bands do something totally out of their element. That’s what we have here. Skeeter Davis was a country/pop star from the early to mid-sixties. She was best known for the huge hit she had in 1963 called ‘The End of the World.” NRBQ has often been called the world’s best bar band or world’s best garage band etc. They were much more than that. Some of their fans include...

Little Feat "Down on the Farm"

Today’s Cool Album of The Day is Little Feat, Down on The Farm. This album was released in 1979. It was being recorded when lead singer, slide guitarist, front man Lowell George passed away. Today is the 31st anniversary of Lowell death. It wasn’t one of the bands better selling, nor better received albums. But I loved it. It’s one of my Little Feat favorites. Favorite tracks? They’d include, ‘Six Feet of Snow, Down on The Farm, Perfect Imperfection’ and ‘Wake Up Dreaming.’ Some interesting guest players on the disc. David Linley, Robben Ford, Sneaky Pete Kleinow (Flying Burrito Brothers), Bonnie Raitt and future Little Feat member, Fred Tackett. Lowelll George (4-13-45) — (6-29-79) Here’s a video of the...
