Davy Knowles’ Near Slow Motion Playing Gives ‘1932’ EP a Smooth Ride (ALBUM REVIEW)

Davy Knowles’ Near Slow Motion Playing Gives ‘1932’ ...

Davy Knowles’ 1932 is not the formal follow-up to his previous studio album, autumn 2016’s Three Miles From Avalon.

Rise of a Texas Bluesman: Stevie Ray Vaughan 1984-1989 (DVD REVIEW)

Rise of a Texas Bluesman: Stevie Ray Vaughan ...

There’s a wealth of video material available devoted to the stage work of the late blues icon guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, so it’s somewhat surprising there’s precious little corresponding documentary work apart from Rise of Texas Bluesman: Stevie Ray Vaughan 1984-1989.  Thankfully, its companion piece Lonestar is a thorough and  ...[more]

George Harrison’s ‘I Me Mine – The Extended Edition’ Tells All About The Quiet One (BOOK REVIEW)

George Harrison’s ‘I Me Mine – The Extended ...

Leave it to George Harrison to affix a title to his memoirs as sardonic as the man himself. Not usually given to open-ended discourse, much less personal revelations, the late Beatle’s autobiography, I Me Mine, is replete with deceptively casual aphorisms about life and art.
