you'll hear amazing versions of songs by jimi hendrix that you've never heard live: "little wing" and "all along the watchtower."
most remarkable: santana's live "black magic woman" followed by a live version by the band that wrote the song, fleetwood mac with peter green.
you'll also hear live allman brothers, and the live, unplugged version of stone temple pilots' [pictured] "plush" with one of rock's more underrated insights:
"and i feel so much depends on the weather..."
For episode 75 I am going to review the 2 mini-albums "Perfect Fantasy" and "Perfect Rainbow" released by Japanese Pop-Rock band LM.C in 2014. Both albums contain 8 tracks and I decided to feature 4 of each to introduce these amazing follow-up releases.
LM.C are a very flashy loud and glamorous Pop-Rock duo founded in 2006 and although they are already approaching their 10-year anniversary they always return with a fresh and brand new style.
Growing up in Iowa, Bruce Wilson enjoyed woodworking, singing, collaging and sculpture. He sang in high school choir and select vocal groups including the Iowa All-State Choir in 1971. Through his college years he studied film history and experimented with photography and ceramics. While taking some core courses in art history he began to play guitar and write songs.
Bruce produced his critically acclaimed debut compact disc, Listen To The Voice, in 1994 and toured the Midwest for four months. The Folk/Singer/Songwriter compilation Listen To The Voice was sold at Best Buy stores in the 90's. Now you can order Listen To The Voice from his website.
Bruce has transformed himself into a full time contemporary oil painter, exhibiting his American Abstract Paintings across the country in about 20 juried fine art festivals per year. Bruce Wilson celebrates by proclaiming, "And here I am. And there are you. God bless the art buyers."
It may not be too darn hot (yet), but I think you'll agree that with this great American composer, anything goes.
I think that is the most lyrical blog post title I've ever written (for those of you not in the know, the "quet" in "Bousquet" rhymes with the "chet" in "Ricochet".) Which is quite fitting since today's guest is a wonderfully lyrical songwriter. Sharon's latest CD, "Ricochet" is rich in both words and music. Join us today on Writers' Voices as we delve into the heart and soul, and the pracitical side as well, of writing songs.
Friendship helped Grace Gillespie Carter access the fortitude to plan, write, revise & self-publish City of Three Rivers, her award-winning epic novel set in Dayton, Ohio. As school girls, she and lifelong friend Rachel Hyde bonded over their shared love of writing. Eventually, they vowed to support each other's efforts to get their books written and published. Now both have succeeded: in December Rachel released her novel, More than We Know.
Grace's book, City of Three Rivers, contains an intriguing mix of colorful fictional and actual historic figures (like the Wright brothers and quirky entrepreneur John Patterson). This novel's setting in flood-prone Dayton heightens suspense. With deftly drawn characters and a multigenerational approach, Grace's novel has won accolades from Dayton's current mayor and a number of authors. It also captured second place in the inaugural Inkfingerz writing competition.
For a glimpse of how two friends urged each other on to self-publishing success, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Grace Gillespie Carter.
