JEFFREY MORGANíS MEDIA BLACKOUT #420

JEFFREY MORGAN'S MEDIA BLACKOUT #420.21!
Ray Wylie Hubbard - Delirium
Tremolos (Philo/Rounder) :: If you're in the
market for a new country blues album, give this instant classic by old mutha Hubbard a shot. Another reason to believe: Faces
stalwart Ian "Mac" McLagan works the Hammond B-3 on several tracks.
Schon - i On U (Favored Nations) :: Journey-man Schon rises above the synth backing tracks to craft an instrumental guitar album
that's part silky David Gilmour and part psycho Jeff Beck. Too bad he'd rather play with himself than be in a real band, though.
- World Play (Soul Sirkus) :: Well whaddya know? Schon upgrades to actual human beings!
If you still proudly listen to old Sammy Hagar albums, then this thud's for you.
The 8-Track - The Ocean (Abacus) :: These four guys aren't old enough to remember vinyl, let alone an 8-track. But they are mature enough
to make an album that's powerful and passionate.
Liam Titcomb - Liam Titcomb (Columbia) :: Canada's
answer to John Mellencamp is a long-haired pretty boy who writes hand-clappin' good-time music including a little ditty called
"Get Down" that actually does.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Vanessa Williams - Everlasting Love (Lava)
:: Need some '70s make-out music? Then slide in and take this VW for a ride that's so smooth you could cut a diamond in the
back seat. My favorite track is the Kraftwerkian "Tuning," which consists of nothing but Vanessa tuning in different
radio stations. Really.
Be seeing you!
