KEITH RICHARS: CROSSEYED HEART
“Richards’ solo career has never been about seeking the spotlight. When he occasionally broke from the Stones over the years, the decision was always about finding a garage band rooted in his steadfast blues sensibilities while Jagger chased trends. Crosseyed Heart features Richards once again backed by Jordan, who co-wrote the album, and other members of X-Pensive Winos, including vocalist Sarah Dash and guitarist Waddy Wachtel. With the Winos behind him, Richards has the confidence and talent to serve up another convincing sampler of any genre he chooses: horn-bolstered, she-left-me reggae (“Love Overdue”); pedal steel-accented, done-me-wrong country (“Robbed Blind”); and guitar-driven garage blues (“Blues in the Morning”) that threatens to blow the doors off that garage like a meth lab explosion”. http://consequenceofsound.net
“A Jefferson Airplane pilot chills with pals on an acoustic set.
Once a pioneer of San Francisco psychedelia, Jorma Kaukonen is a bona fide graybeard folk swami at age 74. His latest LP (AIN’T IN NO HURRY) is all austere, unplugged displays of the Piedmont finger style that’s been his signature since his 1966 Jefferson Airplane showpiece “Embryonic Journey.” There are covers and originals: “The Terrible Operation” is a randy 1930s blues number that recalls Hot Tuna’s “Keep on Truckin’ ”; longtime wingman Jack Casady adds bass on “Bar Room Crystal Ball,” a gentle jammer spangled with Larry Campbell’s iridescent pedal steel. And Jorma? He mostly lays back, a master in situ, unfurling melodies and savoring every note”. (rollingstone.com)
Singer, guitarist and songwriter Kaukonen (1940) is mainly known as a founder-member of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna.
THE HONEYCOMBS 2016 Out on 11th Match, on Radio 68 today
“MARTIN MURRAY formed THE HONEYCOMBS back in 1963 and in 1964 they achieved a multimillion selling worldwide single “Have I The Right” (UK number 1, USA number 5) as well as other hit singles including “That’s The Way” which made UK number 12 in 1965. The band was produced by legendary producer JOE MEEK at his now famous studio at 304 Holloway Road, London” (www.angelair.co.uk ). In 2015, Murray put a new band together and rerecorded a number of songs The Honeycombs did way back (mostly Howard & Blaikley tunes) plus a few new songs. Radio 68 interviewed Martin Murray at his London home in December 2014, when he also performed a one-off acoustic version of his own compositon “Bring Your Heart With You”.

WEBB WILDER: Mississippi Moderne (Landslide Records)
Uit mijn recensie voor Back to the Roots magazine: (…) Met uitzondering van de oerstomp “Stones in My Pathway”, wasemt ook de muziek Memphis en Nashville uit. En zo is het goed, getuige daarvan zowel de oorspronkelijke composities (alleen of, bijvoorbeeld, met een Dan Penn) als het gevarieerde lijstje covers (van Jimmy Reed over Ray Davies van The Kinks tot Charlie Rich). Tennessee betekent Elvis en B.B. King, Ike Turner en de Gran Ole Opry. Al die invloeden gooit Wilder door elkaar en dat levert een aangenaam tot wild swingende mix op (…).
