Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
Due to an extremely hectic week I've been unable to find the time to post here. However, I was fortunate enough to spend a fair amount of time up close and personal with the legendary Booker T, and over a crystal clear ISDN connection with Robert Plant. We were putting together the next two episodes of a new show I've been doing called "Playin' Records With Mike." It's a no-bullshit show where an artist and I sit down and simply play records. Remember the days of getting together with your friends and playing records, turning each other on to new stuff, rare stuff, your latest found musical treasures? Well, Mr. Jones and Mr. Plant could not have been any nicer and both men seemed to thoroughly enjoy talking about and playing music they love. I learned a great deal from them both and I'll make sure to let you know when these episodes will air. In the meantime, here's a few choice selections from Booker T and Robert Plant.
