Joe Walsh “You Can’t Argue With a Sick Mind”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#269 in the Series) is Joe Walsh, You Can’t Argue with a Sick Mind. How things can change in the way we look at an artist. I used to really love Joe Walsh. He was great as the leader of The James Gang, Barnstorm and then as a solo act. Now as we know he’s in The Eagles.  Musically they’ve always been one of the most talented bands around. But something just hasn’t rang true with me since, oh.. about when Joe Walsh joined them. But this isn’t about ‘that’ era of  Joe Walsh’s career. It’s about 1977 and before. This is really when he was really writing some of his best music....

Warren Zevon ‘The Wind’

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#975 in the Series) is Warren Zevon, The Wind In the final episode of season 2 of the hit Showtime series Californication, down on his self-inflicted luck, writer Hank Moody has just finished a book project and is ready to begin his post-project ritual. “Every time I finish a book, It’s Whiskey, Weed and Warren Zevon, It’s the little things” he says, while ”Keep Me in your Heart” plays delicately in the background. “Keep Me In Your Heart” is the emotional core of The Wind, the last album that Warren Zevon made prior to his death of lung cancer in September of 2003. The album was already in the works in late August...

Warren Zevon ‘Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School’

Posted 08 Dec 2013 in Albums of 1980, Albums of the 80s

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#895 in the Series) is Warren Zevon, Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School In what can be considered a what came first, the chicken or the egg, sort of symbiotic of relationship, we will never know if Earnest Hemingway could have written The Old Man and the Sea if he was clean and sober, and wasn’t wrestling with more demons than Anton LeVay. Fortunately, in the case of Warren Zevon, we have the exact answer. You can go home again, and second chances to make a great first impression are sometimes given, which is exactly what happened with the release of Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School in 1980. Following the somewhat...

Rufus ‘Tell Me Something Good’ b/w ‘Smokin’ Room’

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – The Jukebox Series #6 – Rufus  – “Tell Me Something Good” b/w “Smokin’ Room”  – ABC Records 45 ABC-11427 1974 (K1/L1) “The Jukebox Series” focuses on the 80 records that inhabit my 1963 Seeburg LPC1 jukebox. I’ve had my jukebox (or as I like to call it “the prehistoric iPod”) for a little over twelve years and in that time I’d like to think that I’ve perfected the mix of 45s within. In taking stock of the records that inhabit my jukebox for The Jukebox Series, I’ve come to learn something about myself that I’d like to share. I find it somewhat amusing that there are no records newer than the...

Tommy Bolin ‘Teaser’

Posted 24 Feb 2013 in Albums of 1975, Albums of the 70s, Rock + Roll

    Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#840 in the Series) is Tommy Bolin, Teaser Tommy Bolin, a shooting star if there ever was one. Here is an artist that crammed so much talent, inspiration, influence & music from so many different styles into one of the shortest career spans I’ve ever witnessed. In 1968 at the tender age of 17 he began working with a band called Zephyr. By 1969 the were recording their debut album and within a year or two Zephyr were opening for the likes of Led Zeppelin.  Two albums later they drifted apart due to various reasons including  the frustration of not being able to take the band to the next level. It...

Dr. John ‘Dr. John’s Gumbo’

  Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Iko Iko” by Dr. John Where do you go after you’ve taken on an assumed name (“The Night Tripper”) and released four of the trippiest, psychedelic, voodoo-inspired albums in all of music history? If you’re Dr. John, you go straight back home! “I decided I’d had enough of the mighty-coo-de-fiyo hoodoo show, so I dumped the Gris-Gris routine we had been touring with since 1967 and worked up a new act—a Mardi Gras revue.” Actually, going home was probably a good idea for Rebennack, since he needed to take some time out to clean himself up after acquiring a massive drug habit while touring the world as “The Night Tripper.”...
