Paul Kuhn

Most of you won’t know him, but this was Germany’s best jazz pianist, bar none. When he started singing, well, uhm, no. But, I saw this guy live more times than anyone else, always in a trio setting. Anecdote: I traveled to the King Kamehameha […]

Charlie Christian. The Genius of the Electric Guitar.

Charlie Christian

Quite a bit of Charlie Christian today, one of the world’s greatest jazz guitarists. In the last photo you can see that I actually used to make my own covers for CDs that I didn’t keep in boxes. That time is long gone . 😎 […]

No music today, I’m doing spring cleaning. Because I don’t have a photo of Queen’s Roger Taylor in his “I Want to Break Free” outfit, I had to resort to the only CD I have (I think) with a cleaning motif. This is an album […]

Tangerine Dream – Virgin Years 1974-1978

While waiting for THE box set of the year (http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/tangerine-dream-in-search-of-hades-the-virgin-recordings-1973-1979/), I’m going to give much of the same material a spin now. Tangerine Dream. The Virgin Years 1974-1978. Great stuff! P.S.: The new box is called “In Search of Hades: The Virgin Recordings 1973-1979” (16CDs […]

Free. Songs of Yesterday.

Free – Songs of Yesterday

The next couple of hours will be spent with this one here. I have all their albums, but there are a bucket full of alternate takes, alternate mixes, single masters, stereo mixes and unreleased recordings on here that just make this a very worthwhile boxed […]
