When "Nick of Time" rose steadily, eventually becoming the #1-selling album in the US a year after release it's Spring 1989 release, no one was more surprised than Bonnie Raitt. When it also won three Grammy Awards including the coveted Album of the Year Grammy in 1990, no one was more appreciative. Then in May 1991, she released "Luck of the Draw", her biggest album ever. Bonnie Raiitt is my guest In the Studio.

After scoring a worldwide #1 seller with "Seventh Sojourn" in 1972, then spending the next two years mounting the largest concert tour in history at the time, the Moody Blues baffled everyone by taking practically the rest of the Seventies off as a collective. To fill in the missing piece of the puzzle, as well as mark the fortieth anniversary of their #1 selling album "Long Distance Voyager", Moody Blues lifers Justin Hayward and John Lodge are my guests here In the Studio.

In the conclusion to my all-new interview focusing on his brilliant all-instrumental album "Frampton Forgets the Words", delightful conversationalist Peter Frampton picks one of my favorite Stevie Wonder chestnuts to interpret, "I Don't Know Why", and explains to us how Motown, "The Sound of Young America", was in fact even bigger in his home country the UK than here; rocks out with his band on Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way"; reveals his lifelong brotherly love for David Bowie; and much more in this part two.

It's the thirtieth anniversary of the long dreamed about, too good to last summit meeting of both Seventies- and Eighties-era YES members on the album "Union", with Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Alan White, Steve Howe, Tony Kaye, and the late Chris Squire ALL In the Studio.

When Peter Frampton announced in 2019 that his diagnosis with a progressive neuromuscular disease would necessitate his final goodbye tour then, no one was more concerned than me. But as you will hear in this new interview about Peter Frampton's new album, "Frampton Forgets the Words" , he has miraculously found inspiration in making every day be as meaningful, productive, and rewarding as possible.

Woman 50th Anniversary- the late Ray Manzarek
It is the fiftieth anniversary of "L.A. Woman" by The Doors, one of the greatest albums ever made by an American band, one of the first great albums to usher in the Seventies decade, the last album ever by the incomparable Jim Morrison, and a personal "desert island disc" for me that never ages; with the late Ray Manzarek In the Studio.

The sub-title of this classic rock interview should probably be "Frampton Barely Survives". Everybody knows that young Englishman Peter Frampton revolutionized the recording industry in early 1976 with his live double set "Frampton Comes Alive". But where did those now-iconic songs like "Show Me the Way", "Lines on My Face", "Baby I Love Your Way", "All I Want to Be (Is By Your Side)", and "Do You Feel Like We Do" originally come from? Peter joins me In the Studio to trace the days after he left Humble Pie, his struggles with four solid but woefully under-exposed solo studio albums, his phenomenal transformation into pop superstardom with the live album, and the tumultuous years immediately afterward trying to survive it all.

On a maximum scale of five stars, the 1977 debut by Cheap Trick receives AllMusic.com's highest rating, and the even more melodic, better sounding sophomore effort "In Color" in the same year earns 4 1/2 stars. Then Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson, and Bun E. Carlos wrote and recorded the masterpiece "Heaven Tonight" in May 1978, yet again scoring a critics' perfect five star rating. So in hindsight it would appear that recording the Rockford IL quartet's set while performing the strongest material from these three killer studio albums, in front of an adoring audience in one of the world's premiere venues, would be as obvious as a sumo wrestler in your shower stall.

"Guitar Town " Steve Earle shares here In the Studio on the thiry-fifth anniversary of his #1-charting Country debut in March 1986: "I'm a straggler from what was going on in Austin and Nashville in the mid-70s. I had good teachers, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, B.W. Stevenson...when I first got to Nashville on any given night, you could go to Guy's house. And he'd have everybody, from the street level where I was to Mickey Newbury and Neil Young, with the guitar going around. So it was a good place to learn. Then, basically cocaine sort of created a caste system and killed that real fast!"

It is the fiftieth anniversary of "Broken Barricades , Robin Trower's final album in his tenure with the eclectic British band Procol Harum , which has the distinction of placing two of the most unlikely songs at the top of the singles chart five years apart with "Whiter Shade of Pale" in 1967 and "Conquistador" in 1972.

Fifty years ago,"Love It to Death" in March 1971 may have been the the third album by the band Alice Cooper, but that doesn't change the fact that nobody bought the first two. By December of that same year, EVERYBODY had heard "I'm Eighteen" off of Love It to Death , and Alice Cooper had written and recorded a soon-to-be-classic additional full album, Killer .And it was

It is the forty-fifth anniversary of Boz Scaggs "Silk Degrees" , one of the albums which musically defined America's bicentennial year in much the same way as "Frampton Comes Alive", "Fly Like an Eagle" and "Year of the Cat". More accurately this Boz Scaggs interview falls under "Ultra Rare", as the Dallas Texas native, long residing in the San Francisco Bay wine country, has led one of the more private lives in contemporary music.
