Vinyl Review: Gentle Giant — Three Piece Suite

The new release from Alucard is an introduction to the English progressive rock band, Gentle Giant. Titled Three Piece Suite, the double LP is culled from the group’s first three releases: their self-titled debut from 1970, 1971’s Acquiring the Taste, and Three Friends from 1972, along with a track which predates the band’s debut.

Review — Bear Family’s ‘At the Louisiana Hayride Tonight’

Bear Family’s latest box-set is their biggest ever, weighing in at 9.5 pounds and consisting of 20 compact discs and a 224-page hardback book. It’s the size of 20 LPs stacked on top of one another, clocking in at an astonishing 25+ hours of audio. At the Louisiana Hayride Tonight is an astonishing historical record of the country music program’s 12-year run (and then some), broadcasted on Shreveport’s KWKH-AM.

Vinyl Review: Various Artists — Jesus Rocked the Jukebox

In the press release which accompanied the arrival of Craft Recordings’ new compilation, Jesus Rocked the Jukebox, the label makes the point that the 40 tracks on the three vinyl records represent “the roots of American popular music,” just as much as they honor “esteemed gospel groups.” Those are phrases, which — to non-music nerds — might get folks nervous.

Interview: David Levine (LowDown Brass Band)

Chicago’s LowDown Brass Band deftly synthesizes the gritty sounds of Chicago with the high energy second-line street beat of the Crescent City. The group brandishes a powerful brass frontline of trumpets, trombones, and saxophones with a funky backline of drums and sousaphone. Combining the poetic ferocity of Billa Camp with stellar vocal harmonies, adventurous improvisation, movement, and grooves, LowDown Brass Band creates an infectious and diverse sound that has something for every listener.
