CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

40th Anniversary of Duane Allman's Passing

40th Anniversary of Duane Allman's Passing 40th Anniversary of Duane Allman's Passing
On his 22nd birthday, a sick Duane Allman was given a bottle of pills for his fever by younger brother Gregg. Duane emptied the bottle and used it as a slide to play Blind Willie McTell's "Statesboro Blues." So was born a sound essential and unique to The Allman Brothers, formed four months later. The humble man with blistering guitar licks was gone before he reached 25. We celebrate the music we still love with a gift thru Sunday October 30th - use promo code DUANE at checkout to get 40% off this photo of Duane, taken by legendary photographer Joe Sia.
New Release & Download Deal: Jeff Beck New Release & Download Deal: Jeff Beck
This 1975 concert features much of Beck's classic jazz-fusion Blow by Blow album played with a killer band that included Bernard Purdie on drums. Making his guitar plead, weep, wail and sweetly sigh throughout this instrumental set, it's a fantastic example of Beck's volatile, yet sophisticated, playing. This weekend, we're also offering this new release at half price - grab the mp3's for $5 or the FLAC's for $7 and enjoy this Jeff Beck show on the go.

New Jazz Releases - "52nd Street Revisited" New Jazz Releases - "52nd Street Revisited"
In 1974, the New York Jazz Repertory Company staged a Carnegie Hall program celebrating the heyday of the jazz scene along Manhattan's 52nd Street. A Count Basie Tribute Band re-created the big band swing that Basie packed in to the Famous Door, the John Kirby Tribute Band played some 1930s classics that could be heard at the Onyx, and the Billy Taylor Jazz All-Stars represented the bebop movement that was cultivated in Harlem and popularized in Midtown. All three sets are now available for streaming and download, so dig in....
Playlist: King Biscuit Halloween, 1985 Playlist: King Biscuit Halloween, 1985
This playlist re-creates a vintage King Biscuit Flower Hour Halloween broadcast from 1985. With songs by Edgar Winter, Warren Zevon, the Stray Cats, Meat Loaf, Santana, Ozzy Osbourne, BIlly Idol and many more, the program was narrated by talented voice actor, Frank Welker, who portrayed some enjoyably silly ghouls to introduce the music. This King Biscuit Halloween mix may not make you jump out of your skin from fright, but you will probably find yourself singing along with delight. Happy trick-or-treating!
