MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #697.420.21!
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
Neal 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.
Sirkus – World Play (Soul Sirkus) :: Well whaddya know? Schon upgrades to actual human

The 8-Track – The Ocean (Abacus) :: These four guys aren’t old enough to remember

Vanessa tuning in different radio stations. Really.
Be seeing you!
