Boz Scaggs- Lowdown- May 1994 Dallas

Much to my delight, Dallas-via-San Francisco rhythm and bluesman Boz Scaggs has been quite prolific in the 21st century, with the new A Fool to Care   just arriving. One look at the superb Dukes of September    concert DVD confirms my impression…

Todd Rundgren’s Utopia- Only Human- Boston 11-79

The release of the triple-disc live career set For the Lack of Honest Work from Todd Rundgren is a joy for us TR fans , but as comprehensive and era-spanning as it is, there are still some "best of" songs that are not represented . Check out the stunning live chorus vocals here on "Only Human" in this Thanksgiving-eve 1979 Boston performance with Utopia bass/vocalist Kasim Sultan, keyboards/vocalist Roger Powell, and drummer/singer Willie Wilcox.

Chris Isaak- You Owe Me Some Kind of Love- Dallas 1986

It never ceases to amaze me just how much entertainment some musicians can coax out of a tiny  ukelele and some brushes on a hand drum when you have a great song and a one-in-a-million voice like Chris Isaak. That's all it took for him and…

Neil Young & Crazy Horse- Powderfinger- San Francisco 1986

Not since Robbie Robertson's "The Night They Drove Ol' Dixie Down" had anyone written and sung ( in the first person, no less ) about the American antebellum South so richly, so believably as Neil Young and Crazy Horse with "Powderfinger", originally…

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers- Don’t Bring Me Down-Boston 1978

Charlie Sexton-Wishing Tree-Dallas May 1995

Austin Texas-based musician Charlie Sexton's career arc resembles more an electrocardiogram, with stops as a Bob Dylan protege, solo in the mid-'80s, then the probably too-good-to-last Arcangels with Double Trouble's Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon,…

Steve Earle- Copperhead Road- Dallas 1988

In 1988 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…

Steve Forbert- Rock While I Can Rock- Dallas 1992
