Rock and Roll Feature: L.A. Woman, the Final Doors Album with Jim Morrison

This is the twenty-seventh in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Well it's time for the Rock and Roll Feature for the month of May 2009... Let's feature one of the greatest band to come out of Los Angeles of all times: The Doors!.

Live Footage: Tome Petty and the Heartbreakers, 1985

It's been a good year for concerts, at least for me. I've seen some of my favorite bands live this past year, and some of truly amazing concert events. I'm going to a few more coming this spring (reviews will be written I'm pretty sure) and recently purchased some tickets for another concert or two and that got me thinking: What makes a concert special enough that I keep going to them?

Jeff Beck Performing This Week: Live at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club - A DVD Review

Back last year I was lucky enough to be able to review the latest live offering from one of my most favorite guitarists: Jeff Beck. The album, Performing This Week Live at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club really caused a stir as a pretty incredible listen, a great showcase of the talents of Beck and his latest band, and a great addition to the Jeff Beck catalog, which has been somewhat lacking in live recordings.

Cheap Trick Live in Chicago 1981

Sometimes there are one hit wonders and they truly are just that. They had a moment when their songwriting skills peaked, and then unfortunately spent a good part of their career trying to recapture that initial moment. Then there are other "one or two hit wonders" or "Best of bands" (bands where their best of collections are all that are worth listening to) who have been unfortunately given these titles by pop culture, mainstream media, "music historians" and plenty of other people who consider themselves musically enlightened.

Jeff Beck Performing This Week: Live at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club - A CD Review

When it comes to guitar legends, few can measure up to Jeff Beck. Going all the way back to his days with the Yardbirds, Beck has continually infused new life into electric guitar, pushing the boundaries into jazz fusion and forging his own unique technique and style. I've been a fan of Jeff Beck pretty much from the first time I heard him play. He has a way of touching a note and sculpting it in a way that is completely unexpected and can take a simple phrase and wrench more emotion out of it than just about any player I've ever seen.

Rock and Roll Feature: The White Album, Part 1

This is the twenty-second in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Rock and Roll Feature: The White Album, Part 2

This is the twenty-second in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Ok, so in part one of this feature, we discussed the first 17 tracks of the Beatles epic double album known affectionately as the "White Album". Now we will continue with the remainder of this musical masterpiece to celebrate the 40th anniversary of it's release this month.

Elvis Costello Live Footage, Rare and Known.

Recently I've been trying to expand my musical collection with a lot of artists/bands that I've had on my radar for a while and just haven't explored as in depth as I would like. The list of artists I compiled for this little endeavor has quite a range to it and includes a certain singer/songwriter/punk rock icon I've been hearing sporatic songs by for something like a decade or longer.

A Little Music To Weather the New Storm... The Economic One

Well, although we survived the hurricanes and the flooding, while all that was going down we fell into a new storm that is still effecting us and is spreading... the economic crisis. With the market on a perpetual roller-coaster, the US government working to do whatever they can to right the ship (including throwing money at the problem) and the general public wondering if we're going to be in for just a little recession or will be bartering for food by the end of the month, it's certainly exciting times that we live in.

Playing Like it Actually Ii the Farewell Tour: The Eagles - A Concert Review

September was a good month for concerts here at the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll, and because of that, I can post some concert reviews this month. I was able to see two of the amazing shows, by two very different artists, at two very different venues, amazingly making for two incredible, but very different shows. And it just so happened that they both happened within a few days of each other, making for one stellar week for me.
