Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
17 is a magic number this week as we explore different sounds with the same number as the latest episode. We'll also unearth a long lost and never released John Coltrane Quartet recording, as well as previously unreleased live material from Derek & The Dominoes and Traffic. The new bin is overflowing with Death Cab For Cutie, Fantastic Negrito, Low, Peter Buck and Joseph Arthur, Spiritualized and M. Ward to name a few... and new stuff from living legends Buddy Guy (with Mick, Keith and Jeff Beck), John Fogerty and new single from Nick Lowe. Plus a whole bunch more. Thanks to all for the wonderful get well wishes. I most definitely feel the love and thank you with all my heart.
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.
On this date in 1938 the great Etta James arrived on the planet.
On this date in 1980 Paul McCartney was released from a Tokyo jail where he had been imprisoned for nine days after trying to carry a half pound of marijuana through customs at the Tokyo airport.
On this date in 1881 Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell and others signed an agreement to organize the Oriental Telephone Company.
On this date in 2011 I pulled this beauty out of the library for a spin.
Many have asked how to keep the From The Basement programs afloat, especially now that I am unemployed. Please donate via PayPal below whatever you feel you can afford to help cover my costs. Thank you.
