dbflash Posted May 3, 2006 Share Posted May 3, 2006 Nice to see people posting here. This has been a great source for me to get new music. A CD that I bought I think last month that I really like is: Larry Carlton "Fire Wire" I thought it was going to be smooth jazz, but it is high energy and makes me so glad I have Klipsch speakers. Larry plays Guitar and he has a great backing band. Great CD to drive around town with. Last weeks purchases: The Flaming Lips "War at the Mystics" Hard one to discribe for me. Reminds me of early Who, Moody Blues and Prince. Lot of effects, but the more I listen to it the more I like. James Hunter "People Gonna Talk". R&B. A white Sam Cooke from England. Also reminds me of New Orleans. James has a smooth voice and a nice little backing band. To me the CD starts strong and by the 5th/6th song I'm wanting to hear "Darling You Send Me". Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris "All the Roadrunning". Who would have thought these two would blend so well. I like both of them seperately, but together WOW. MK wrote all but 2 songs on this and if you like DS or his past works you will not be disappointed. You can tell his guitar style as soon as he starts playing. This is one of his better efforts in years. I like this better than his last 2 releases, which I liked, but this CD is the reason I look forward to new releases by him. Emmylou is her usual sweet sounding self. She wrote 2 cuts and they are very good. Doesn't matter if she's singing lead or harmony, she is just awesome. The stand out cuts on this to me is "This Is Us" and "Red Staggerwing". Out of the last 15 CD's I bought last month this has to be in my top 3. The only thing I don't like about this CD it's only 12 songs long. I am still wanting to hear more when its over. A CD to stay away from, which I never thought I'd ever say, is Van Morrison's "Pay the Devil". What a waste. I have every album/CD he has done and some have been weak in the past, but there was always at least a song that made up for it, but this one doesn't even have the one song. It was like it's 2006 we need to put out something. I know let's try country. May every song you hear be your favorite tune. Danny Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
