Those clueless Canadian cops need to chill the hell out, smoke some weed and listen to Bob Marley, how dare they give Moalla a ticket for singing along with his jam.

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...

John G. KaysKings of Leon Sixth Outing, 'Mechanical Bull,' Strong Signature Guitar Pop Combo Effort! - I must confess, I never know what I`m going to write when I sit down to do it, but will say, (nonetheless), the first thought that comes across my mind as I type blindly, when listening to the Kings of Leon new record (their 6th outing), Mechanical Bull, is I want to learn more about their newly created home studio in Nashville, once a paint factory, where they recorded this album.

KaysThe Texas International Pop Festival Took the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex in a Different Direction! - 44 years ago to the day (Labor Day weekend - August 30, 31, and September 1st, 1969), a bunch of crazy kids gravitated towards a motor speedway in Lewisville, Texas, so that they could experience an outdoor rock festival.

Robert Paul ReyesSixth Annual 'Record Store Day' A Smashing Success: Video - I fondly remember as a teenager browsing through the bins of vinyl records at Tower Records in San Francisco, admiring the art work, and reading the liner notes of the album covers.
Stan PopovichHow To Balance A Family, Your Music Career, And Your Stresses - It can be difficult for adults to have to take care of their families and manage their music careers. This can cause a lot of stress and anxiety.
John G. KaysNick Cave & The Bad Seeds` 'Push The Sky Away' Holds Some Soothing Secrets! - I hear Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds gave a killer performance that night at Stubbs BBQ. Well, I missed that too, but did have enough sense to pick up Push The Sky Away last Saturday, ironically, at the aforementioned Waterloo.
John G. KaysWith Jacco Gardner`s 'Cabinet of Curiosities' Ride A Private Paisley Time Machine! - The closest I could come to a Paisley/Psychedelic unit, while on a perilous scavenger hunt laced with musical mines, that is the intrinsic potpourri terrific allotment earmarkings of SXSW, I happed (haphazardly) upon Amsterdam wizard-child Jacco Gardner and his newly completed project, Cabinet of Curiosities.
John G. KaysChris Stamey`s 'Lovesick Blues' Explores the Subconscious Wonders of Songs In Our Dreams! - The transcendent moment (for me) of Chris Stamey`s new reflective solo project, Lovesick Blues, is the B section of the title tune (Lovesick Blues, the orchestral version), which vaguely resembles (or has the feel) of Strawberry Fields .

John G. KaysSixto Rodriguez`s 'Cold Fact' an Instantaneous Pop Classic? Not Exactly, It Took 43 Years! - Simple Art is the Best Art. Sixto Rodriguez`s Cold Fact, released in March of 1970 on Sussex, is a nice fit with this maxim. 43 years have passed by, but Cold Fact is still a new release. Why or how? It was an unknown chunk of ephemera (mostly) before Searching for Sugar Man!
John G. KaysIs Jimi Hendrix ('People, Hell and Angels') Resurrected from the Dead A Final Time? - If these are demo tracks (Jimi Hendrix - People, Hell and Angels), let me have more of where that`s coming from! 12 new sides from Stone-Free Myth-of-A-Rock God; made my day! Got my mighty fine new Audio-Technica headphones to fathom Hendrix (just out of the can) sides with, so it`s 1969 once again (A New Day Is Dawning), as far as I`m concerned.
