Phil Collins- Hello I Must Be Going 35th Anniversary

By Fall 1982, anyone who had underestimated child-actor-turned-rock-drummer Phil Collins should have wised up when his second solo album Hello I Must Be Going   was released then.

Check Into “Hotel California” 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

“You can check out, But you can never leave…” So sang Don Henley and the Eagles on the title song to Hotel California   forty years ago ( okay, it was actually forty-one, but don’t bug Mr. Henley ). That lyric line crossed my mind this morning when opening the New York Times  online when […]

Jethro Tull- Living in the Past 45th Anniversary- Ian Anderson Interview

The  40th anniversary box set of Jethro Tull‘s Songs from the Wood  received the knees up full Monty treatment from Porcupine Tree remixer/ surround sound savant Steven Wilson earlier this year, a perfect present in the upcoming holiday season for any long time Jethro Tull fan (is there any other kind?) . In my opinion, […]

Jeffrey Gaines-The Hero in Me-Dallas Oct 1992

(cont)…In October 1992 , Jeffrey performed “The Hero in Me” live in a Dallas disco accompanied by four members of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, with music charts arranged by me humming the string parts to a most-patient and bemused classical arranger .Like Oprah Winfrey would later do twenty years later when exiting her daily television show , Gaines reminds us, on this Memorial Day weekend on which Americans honor heroes, that the potential for valor resides in each of us , and requires only the sincere desire to serve others .-Redbeard
