Three Decades and then a Fourth

This was recorded in the early 1970s, then went unreleased for three decades until it finally came out about ten years ago.

David Ruffin, former lead singer of the Temptations, with Stevie Wonder.

It sizzles and pops and is just freaking amazing.

Hands down my favorite song that refers to mathematicians in a cool cover version I'd never heard until now.

For the First Time in 17 Years...

New music from Squeeze!

Here's hoping the album has some real rockers and not just the endless mid-tempo stuff that characterized most of their output from the late 80s and 90s...

It Was 35 Years Ago Today

Holy hell, this is great.

Try to ignore the logo on the video, listen to the power (and dig that weird looking guitar)!

With Cheap Trick, who were fired when they asked to be paid for the sessions.

Ten Years After

A reunion tour.

Ten years later.

Singing the same political songs.

But it's ten years later.

Everyone's older.

Stuff changed.

And why not? Ten years went by.

So you can't sing the old songs the old way with the old words.

And maybe, being older, the new words make more sense. Resonate more.

And maybe, just maybe, it's even better than the original.
