Silk Degrees (Exp)
A great album from my early high school years with a great mix of rock, pop, slow and fast tunes. Nearly every song on this ten track masterpiece is a winner. Call me crazy but the big hit Lowdown is …

Stadium Arcadium
Stadium Arcadium is a true gem. It has it all: rock, pop, funk, metal, rap and various combos. Some may say the band sold out but I say they have grown into a band that can adapt to many audiences. Anthony …

Chicago has had quite a career. When they started out they were a jam oriented band which implemented horns heavilly into their sound. Their first three studio releases were loaded with lenghty suite …

This is not your daddy's job search book. In the old days you could walk up to any company, fill out an application and maybe get an interview on the spot. If you networked it was a bonus.    Today, …

Big Man: Real Life & Tall Tales
This is quite an erratic read. First of all, I wih Clarence had taken a more chronological approach. He jumps around in time with no rhyme or reason as to why one chapter follows another. Secondly, the …

Very worthy recording by these German Rockers. Many of the songs are heavy guitar driven. However, there are some little ubtle touches that make this recording stand out a bit. One is the beautiful closing …

Interesting how I will probably be in the minority on this one. To me, John Griham can do little wrong with his writing. The Associate is really no exception. The story is detailed without being boring …

Vanished
I know my heading is kind of weird. But then again Vanished is a bit odd. Too many oddities to the character development. Its a little odd that Roger and Nick Heller are estranged yet Nick on behalf of …

Love that Roots Rock by good old John Fogerty. Amazing how this CD came out in 2008 or so and it still sounds so similar to John's Creedence Days. It shows when you have a good thing you stick to it. …
