Michael Penn “Try”-Dallas 7-28-97

Brilliant  singer/ songwriter Michael Penn probably needs a publicist just to attend family functions. Both of his parents are actors, his younger brother Sean Penn is an Academy Award-winning actor and director, and Michael’s wife is uber-talented singer/ songwiter Aimee Mann. But as you will hear, Michael Penn needs only an acoustic guitar...

Steve Earle-Copperhead Road-Dallas 1987

In 1987 Texan Steve Earle and I were sitting by the pool on the patio of Dallas’ former Greenville Avenue Country Club bar/ restaurant when he put this acoustic guitar with the huge sound on his knee and belted out “Copperhead Road”, his five minute movie-in-your-mind. – Redbeard Steve Earle in 1987 (right),...

You can dock me points for the minimalist recorded sound, but Steve Forbert‘s “Rock While I Can Rock” scores big time in the attitude column now even more than when he performed this in 1992. Recorded live solo one man band right off the dance floor at Arlington Texas’ Baja Beach Club, ignore...
