Affordable Podcasting $5.99 a month includes Web Hosting Buy Your 50 mp3 classic radio shows for $5.00 inclues shipping Like the other great album to come out of post-Katrina New Orleans, Allen Toussaint & Elvis Costello’s The River in Reverse, the Radiators’ latest consists mainly of songs written before the deluge. But the long-running Crescent City band catch a definite sense of time and place on this disc, which was recorded in the studio during the first post-hurricane Mardi Gras. Many of the lyrics sound too appropriate to be accidental, especially the opening “Ace in the Hole” (“When the big wind blows chilly and cold, the wise fool flies south”) and the closing “Shine Tonight” (“We’re all in the same boat, it sunk without a trace”). It also makes sense that the band sound even more New Orleans–ish than usual, adding sax on the ’50s-style jukebox rocker “Rollercoaster” and banjo on the Preservation Hall homage “Desdemona.” The overall mood is more intense than usual for these guys, notably on the Richard Thompson–esque “Don’t Pray for Me” and the sexy/swampy “Rub It In” — the first time the standout track on a Radiators disc has been a love song. Their trademark two-guitar workouts are kept tight enough to serve the songs, and the mood is muted but still celebratory. The chanted choruses that close “Shine Tonight” attest to a city — or at least a few individual souls — slowly coming back to life. CLICK THE BANNER TO VISIT A GREAT BUSINESS

Ever since he first saw The Beatles on television, Deziel has been involved in music, whether playing, writing or admiring. He grew to love vocal harmonies and layered guitars, and used them in his own compositions as well as those he has written with other artists. In 1991, Deziel met Jeff Carlisi of .38 Special through a meeting arranged by a friend. After that initial meeting, Carlisi became Deziel's mentor, and Deziel began sending him tapes of his own compositions to critique and judge. Carlisi would respond by phone or by mail with his compliments and comments. This is something that to this day Deziel claims to be an invaluable asset to his work. However, Deziel doesn't do everything solo. In 1993, Deziel founded the Connecticut band Sundance. As a guitarist/vocalist, he is one of the principal songwriters in the band. Sundance released its first full-length album, "Pearls of Wisdom" in November 1995. The band was a popular draw throughout the Northeast, and could be heard on many radio stations. With the group Deziel was also the subject of a television special called "Behind the Scenes With Sundance". Suppport The Tony

Affordable Podcasting $5.99 a month includes Web Hosting Suppport The Classic Blues at Music Maker Visit The Uncle Shag Today Buy Your 50 mp3 classic radio shows for $5.00 inclues shipping listen to 24 hour streaming radio at its best Matthew d You don't need an old record to recapture the spirit of great music. You can hear the reverberations of the past, and the sound of the future in one group... Matthew D and Random Tuesday. Breaking down the barriers of the blues while churning up a style and sound of their own, Matthew D and Random Tuesday create a solid mixture of rocking, original, pop based blues. Along with innovative cover material, they are blazing the modern road from the delta. Blues is a state of mind. Despite a blues emphasis wrapped in a pop package, their set of music makes it transparently clear just how grounded these tunes are in rock, country, jazz, hip-hop and gospel. This musical eclecticism is the canvas that allows Matt?s musical soul come up for air. Matt?s abilities as a composer, guitarist, singer, producer and band leader span a broad spectrum indeed, but the foothold of Mathew D and Random Tuesday is still fully ensconced with their unique stamp on the blues. Their all original debut album, ?NOTES FROM THE EDGE?, (produced, recorded, and written by Matt) is a passion filled, radio friendly, no holds barred production. From the beginning hook of the first track, ?Ain?t Man Enough?; to the heart felt, country inspired ?Here Come Those Tears?, to the jazz flavored, ?Shadows Of Love?, to the final track, there is something here for every one. This release will likely be followed by more reviews comparing the singer/songwriter to "John Mayer with the soul of Stevie Ray Vaughan.? With songs of love, loss and whatever strikes him at the moment. Always compelling, confounding, creative. Bluessmyth bluessmyth is a heavy blues band. The rhythmic foundation of bluessmyth is laid down by Jason Yaholkoski’s deep, definitive bass playing, combined with Calvin Becker’s bombastic, hammerhead drumming, and then is finished off with Chris Yaholkoski’s fire and brimstone guitar lines.

Davis was partially blind at birth, and lost what little sight he had before he was an adult. He was self-taught on the guitar, beginning at age six, and by the time he was in his 20s he had one of the most advanced guitar techniques of anyone in blues; his only peers among ragtime-based players were Blind Arthur Blake, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Blind Willie Johnson. Davis himself was a major influence on Blind Boy Fuller.

Affordable Podcasting $5.99 a month includes Web Hosting Suppport The Classic Blues at Music Maker Visit The Uncle Shag Today Buy Your 50 mp3 classic radio shows for $5.00 inclues shipping Rusty Wright Blues Band There will always be those who feel compelled to argue over what the blues is or isn't. If the music of Rusty Wright Blues sounds like it was colored from the big box of crayons, it's because Rusty Wright and Laurie LaCross-Wright feel the universe would be a mighty flat and boring place if everyone was given a crayon from the box and told they had to express themselves with just that one color. The title track, "Ain't No Good Life", is easily the most traditional sounding on the disk and features Rusty's slide guitar skills but a wide variety of influences make an appearance on this Flint Michigan couple's debut release. Tommy Stewart (a longtime friend of Rusty's who enjoyed success as original drummer for Godsmack) contributes wickedly deep pocket drum grooves on all of the tracks. Steve Himes, a band mate since 1999, plays keys. Recent additions to the band include drummer Dan Mata and bassist Randy McEntire. These husband/wife guitarists manage to keep at least one toe lodged in the blues while embracing a southern rock vibe that might best be described as 'Bonnie Raitt and ZZ Top crashing an Allman Brothers house party.' Taking a cue from husband/wife country music teams like Carter & Cash, Jones & Wynette and McGraw & Hill, the Wrights also bring the time-honored male/female duet tradition into the Blues world. Their affable banter and sense of humor pervades the disc and they sound like they're having a helluva good time as they trade verses back and forth on songs like "Something Missin" and "The Fool Will Do." Their quirky sense of humor again shows up in "Nasty Reputation," "Ain't From Mississippi," "Toppy" and "Long Time Coming" - all hard grooving tunes with a southern blues rock vibe. Rusty tears up the fret board on "Hell On My Heels." "Do It Again" may slip out of the genre of blues but Rusty and Laurie refuse to feel apologetic.

Affordable Podcasting $5.99 a month includes Web Hosting Suppport The Classic Blues at Music Maker Visit The Uncle Shag Today Buy Your 50 mp3 classic radio shows for $5.00 inclues shipping Easy Rider Blues by Soileau and Robin is a really sweet cajun blues holler in an equally mesmerizing and haunting style. Hastings Street has Blind Arthur Blake on guitar and Charlie Spand on piano in an impromptu and rollicking guitar/piano duet blues. The Corley Family have a ragged but sweet down home family gospel vocal sound with a lot of charm on Give The World A Smile. The Original Stack O'Lee Blues by Long Cleve Reed and Little Harvey Hull (aka the Down Home Boys) is not only really rare - it in fact is a one of a kind record being the only copy known in existence! - it is also a mellow finger picking blues which would make Dylan melt.
