The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers 50th Anniversary Edition Enhances The Best of the Best (ALBUM REVIEW)

The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers 50th Anniversary Edition Enhances ...

There’s no small risk involved in tampering with a classic, and the Beatles in particular. The Love spectacular by Cirque de Soleil aside, any attempt to enhance the Fabs’ original intents takes history down a rabbit hole where the producers’ vision threatens to supersede the Beatles’ intents with their own vision  ...[more]

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.
