John G. KaysTaylor Swift`s '1989' Fails as Legitimate Pop; it`s a Fake Throwback Thursday! - I thought I might try to break down a song or two, criticizing the lyrics, song structure, or possibly production values, but I skip by every song, thinking the next one will afford me an opening, an opportunity, but it is an illusion as I flicker...

John G. KaysAbbey Road`s Light and Life-Altering Influence Hasn`t Dimmed One Iota in 45 Years! - In the early morning hour, when grabbing an eyeful of This Day In Music, with an arsenal of fresh coffee in tote, to fend off the nappy Sandman`s sleepy spell, I awkwardly observed that this is the 45th anniversary of The Beatles` Abbey Road (their eleventh studio album), released in the UK, in 1969 (hit the stands in the U.S. October 1st).

John G. KaysAs Far As The Woodstock Music Festival Goes, I Fall In The 'Worship It As A Cosmic Event' Camp! - The Woodstock Music Festival (An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music) turned 45 years-old-today; as such, I had to read up on some of the stuff that was posted on the internet, as well as pull out my 40th Anniversary Edition (two discs, the director`s cut) in storage...
John G. KaysA Little Parlophone LP, 'Please Please Me' Topped the UK Charts This Day In History, August 7th, 1963! - I like to take a look at (the) This Day In Music web site in the morning, to consider some of the gems of history getting inked on those timeless pages. This ritual helps me to get through the day smoother, knowing that, while it wasn`t myself, at least somebody did something important on this day.
John G. KaysBEATLEMANIA Can`t Be Simulated By Today`s Digital Technology! - Today, August 1st, in terms of Pop Music History, marks the 50th anniversary when The Beatles scored their FIFTH Number One single in the US, with A Hard Day`s Night (Thisdayinmusic.com)!

John G. KaysRhino`s 'The Very Best of Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons' a Must Before Friday! - I dropped by a Barnes and Nobles on Father`s Day, looking around for some John Ford classic Westerns; well I found some nice TCM quadruple movie packs, then adding to that, I picked up a terrific CD on the Rhino label, The Very Best Of Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons (2002).
John G. KaysA Warm-Up Review of The Black Angels` 'Clear Lake Forest' 10 Inch; Solid Psychedelic Garage Rock! - The Black Angels are my favorite band in Austin; the reason why this is so is simple: much of my music exists in a similar school, Psychedelic Garage Rock, with a lemon twist of Punk/New Wave, thrown in for good measure.
John G. KaysA High Point of HBO`s 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, is Linda Ronstadt`s Induction! - I caught HBO`s 2014 Rock N Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony (originally taking place on April 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn), Saturday night; I had sense enough to hit the red record button, since there were quite a few bright moments (to behold). I enjoyed all of the shoe, since I`ve spent a lifetime worshipping Rock N Roll Music...
John G. KaysThee Oh Sees` 'Drop' Recalls Anywhere From the Paisley Underground Bands, to Marvels of Fripptronics! - Initially, I was attracted to the groovy, neon black light-like record cover (by Jonny Negron) of Thee Oh Sees` Drop (Castle Face 33), when I saw it displayed on the listening station, at the End Of A Ear indie record store in Austin, Texas (2209 S. 1st St.).

SOP newswire2A Wish by Karen Oberlin and Sean Harkness - A Wish, like a hope or a dream, whether simple or complex, is always personal. Yet the wishes of two artists can be expressed in one creative project like this one by Karen Oberlin and Sean Harkness.
SOP newswire2MIGHTY REAL: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical Prepares to Come Off-Broadway - This INCREDIBLE Show comes back to New York after SOLD OUT runs in NYC, Miami and Washington, D.C.
John G. KaysELEVEN! The 11 Best/Top Records For 2013! - This triple record easily gets the top slop this year. Dave`s been waiting patiently backstage for more than 50 years to get his own, and finally it`s payback time for this Folk Troubadour and Sea Shanty collector. If you don`t have this yet, get with it, before it`s too late for you.
John G. KaysDave Van Ronk`s 'Down In Washington Square' Is a Proper Education In American Music! - Suddenly I`ve discovered Dave Van Ronk (1936-2002) after picking up a copy of the 3 CD set, Down In Washington Square (The Smithsonian Folkways Collection), more than 50 years after the folk singer made the cool Greenwich Village scene! Well, perhaps, it`s the story of my life...
John G. KaysNeil Young`s 'Live At the Cedar Door' Is A Valuable Audio Archive for That Time, 1970! - I caught part of the NPR story on my car radio, covering the December 10th release of Neil Young Live At The Cellar Door. I seem to remember bootlegs of this stuff from this period, floating around the circuit of devotees (which comprised a sizable multitude); this would be in Boston, Fall 1971 semester at Boston University, where I found myself after graduating from high school in Dallas, Texas.
John G. Kays'Bob Dylan Another Self Portrait (1969-1971)' Puts the Zimmerman Puzzle Pieces Back Together! - It`s my understanding, Bob Dylan Another Self Portrait (1969-1971) The Bootleg Series Vol. 10, was issued last August, but I just saw it on Sunday at Waterloo Records, so I indulged myself. My vinyl copy of the original Self Portrait was lifted from my flat (probably by a junkie) sometime in the mid-Seventies...
John G. KaysGood to Compare 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Soundtrack to Dave Van Ronk`s 'Down In Washington Square!' - While Inside Llewyn Davis is a beautiful soundtrack, it`s maybe not as iconic as O Brother, Where Art Though? I haven`t seen the movie quite yet (it comes to Austin Dec 20th), but this may be a blessing in disguise, since I can judge it on its own merits. I`m a big fan of T-Bone Burnett...
John G. KaysLady`s Gaga`s 'ArtPop' is Her 'Sergeant Pepper`s Lonely Hearts Club Band!' - Is that a bass stick thumping around on Donatello? Those buzz-saw, ripple synth-pop grooves, appear to be the predominant instrumental hook on Lady Gaga`s newly created, misunderstand masterpiece, ArtPop. The critics have been stupidly panning ArtPop...
