GREAT guitarist! Remember when he was with Thin Lizzy? 'Shapes of Things' and 'Empty Rooms' were on one of his Gary Moore Band albums, I think it was on the album 'Victims of the Future'.  

Very underrated during the 80's when Eddie Van Halen dominated the guitar scene. I remember when Gary passed away in Feb. sad.

R.I.P. Gary

Michael Landau - Tales From The Bulge 1989

 

 

Michael Landau - Tales From The Bulge - 1989

 

 

In the mid '70s Michael played in the L.A. dance clubs with an R&B band and toured the west coast with The Robben Ford Band, which included members of the Yellow Jackets, Jimmy Haslip and Russell Ferrante.

At age 19 he joined Boz Scaggs for a world tour and by the age of 20 he started to do session work with the help of Steve Lukather and Jeff Porcaro. Some session highlights over the coming years would include Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, BB King, James Taylor, Seal, Ray Charles and Rod Stewart. There is a complete session discography at allmusic.com with over 500 records and soundtracks listed that Michael has performed on over the years.

In 1984 Michael toured again and recorded with Joni Mitchell. This tour was called "The Refuge Of The Roads" with Vinnie Colaiuta, Larry Klein and Russell Ferrante.

In 1989 he released his first solo studio album "Tales from the Bulge", an instrumental record initially released in Japan and on "Creatchy" records in the states. Wayne Shorter, Steve Tavaglione, Vinnie Colaiuta, Carlos Vega, David Garfield and Jimmy Johnson were among some of the players on this release.

In 1990 he formed the blues-rock band Burning Water with his brother Teddy Landau, David Frazee and Carlos Vega. They put out 4 discs of original material and played in Japan and locally in L.A. It was also around this time that he started to record and tour with James Taylor.

In 1993 he won the readers poll for "Best Studio Guitarist" in "Guitar Player Magazine".

In 1994 Michael formed The Raging Honkies, a spicy rowdy rock band with Teddy Landau and Abe Laboriel Jr. They released 2 discs and toured in Europe and the US.

In 2001 he released a double live album of original material and a studio album "The Star Spangled Banner" on his own label "Unconscious Records".

Michael has also produced and or mixed some selected artists and side projects including: Scott Henderson, The Jazz Ministry, Stolen Fish and Freak Juice.

He currently tours and performs with The Michael Landau Group, The Wreckers, Robben Ford, The Jazz Ministry, Stolen Fish, Hazey Jane and James Taylor.

Jeff Buckley - Grace


If there is anyone left on earth that does not own this disc, get it!

Sometimes you will try to just play it as background music while you do other things, but it will drag you into your listening chair in minutes. No escaping it.

The only version of of Hallelujah that is better than Leonard Cohen's own, believe me.

Love the guy's music and voice.

However, way too much compression, so I am dismayed.

I will look for a vinyl version to compare.

Compression

Compression has ruined a great deal of great music for me too. We are constantly told that it's the music that matters most, but my audiophile roots keep telling me the sound sucks.

Imagine, sonics so bad, it overcomes the message.

I've given up on Lyle Lovett these days.

His last couple of discs were so compressed, I didn't get any musical enjoyment.

Oldies with the kids...

Trying to convince my kids that The Stooges, Johnny Thunders and the New York Dolls, MC5, and the Velvet Underground were all punk before The Ramones.

They still sound fresh.

We played The Kingsmen doing Louie Louie to demo the punk vibe from....1963.

Eventually, we will revisit some early Beatles in the punk rock context and see what they think about that!

:D

(My son is the world's biggest Ramones fan, but he pronounces it 'ray-moans,' which I find cool. He likes to arrange ukelele renditions of their songs. His uke covers of Blitzkrieg Pop and I Wanna Be Sedated are a little mind bending.)

I missed that David Gilmore!

OK, I gotta go hunt it down.

The bonus with this album, for me, is that the best song is at the very end, like an extra special reward after a great album.

 

Sort of a musical happy ending.

As a added bonus to the Gilmour live at Royal Albert Hall, David is joined by David Crosby and Graham Nash on some tunes. Very nice.

I have never heard anything from Son Volt before. What are the instruments on that album? What type of music is this?

Thanks! ;-)

Son Volt...

Son Volt is a Jay Farrar project. He was one half of Uncle Tupelo back in the day. Jeff Tweedy was the other half and he now fronts Wilco.

I'd call Son Volt Alt Country with more electric guitar than usual. Some time Crazy Hores-like, somethimes like The Jayhawks.

 

Felt lazy last night so left that on the carousel and added Robbie Roberston's 'How to be Claivoyent' and Cash Brothers 'How Was Tomorrow?'

 

You can maybe find the Cash Brothers album review here at the site from about 10 years ago. It was a "Recording of the Month."

Old tunes

I don't know why but i've been listening to a fair bit of BeeGees and Simon and Garfunkel lately, they just seem to hit the spot. It's surprising how fresh a recording from 1970 can sound, I suppose the current audio system has something to do with it. When good music and a good recording meet we truely have something special. I'm going to dig deeper into my older music and see what else turns up.

Oh yeah, I agree! About 60% of all my music is from the 1970's. What a great time for music in general. The BeeGee's put out some really good music whether it be dance, or love songs. R.I.P. Robin Gibb, a class act.

Here is a band that I still love just as I did when I was a kid at 10 yrs old. Thanks to my hippie Father,

Paul McCartney and Wings - Band On The Run - 1973

RE: Old Tunes

The Bee Gees are represented in my collection by the Rhino 2009 2-disk CD "Ultimate Bee Gees" It sounds pretty good, though some of the tracks on disk 2 sound like two independant track recordings.Not so bad, but certainly different than recordings with more unified sound stage.

Speaking of sound stage, I read a couple of days ago on another forum (which also referred to an older J.A  Stereophile article on sound stage) about Paul Simon's Graceland being an excellent example of a good sound stage recording. So I went and got the Graceland 25th anniversary edition, and have to agree wholeheartedly!

BTW- I also listen frequently to HDTracks high resolution download versions of "The Animals Retrospective", and "Creedence Clearwater Revival's Chronicle: 20 Greatest Hits".  I'm not sure how much the higher sample rates and bit depth help the sound of these older recordings, but they certainly sound better now than they did on the equipment I had when the original versions came out 40 or so years ago..

I don't know of any Tim. This particular disc has 1 live CD and 1 studio CD. I bought this one right after I went to see him in concert at Atlanta's Center Stage auditorium in 1993.This is the best Joe Satriani Cd he has ever released in my humble opinion.

We've just been enjoying one of the wifes favorites, Ray Brown ( Moonlight Serenade ) on CD, JET 60 005. Mellow but beautiful. One of are least compressed and better sounding disc's I should think.

The Revel Salons seem to take this type of music to a higher level, somehow make it more important.
