New Dionne Album

On CBS' "Sunday Morning" broadcast this morning, Dionne was interviewed by Mo Rocca and they discussed her career. It was music to my ears when it was announced that she has a new album coming out this year. Just like the 60's, I eagerly await this new project with much enthusiasm as Dionne remains ...

R.I.P.—Nancy Wilson

Jazz great Nancy Wilson passed away at age 81 in California yesterday after a long illness. Affectionately called "Fancy Nancy", she considered herself as a song stylist—an interpreter of lyrics. Her first Grammy Award came in 1964 with "(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am", of which Bonnie Bramlett hono...

Update: Elvis Costello & The imposters on TV

On September 29, 2018, I posted that Elvis Costello & The Imposters would make an appearance on "CBS Saturday Morning News" in the "Saturday Session" segment on Saturday, October 20, 2018. However, they didn't and there wasn't a reason given as to why—that sure was very unprofessional of them! Accor...

Re: Live To See Another Day

Thanks grooverider for sharing access to the "Live To See Another Day" video. In our knowledge and experiences of music being the universal language, one can't help but feel the hope and emotion from Burt's melody, Rudy's words, and Haven's and Angeline's delivery. On August 03, 2018, a post by Davi...

Re: Burt Bacharach and Tonio K Demos

Thanks Martyn for sharing Gabriel's access. Unfortunately, she informed me that the title is no longer available and will not be reissued. I am just devastated! If there's someone out there who knows how I can obtain a copy, by all means please, please let me know. She informed me that a new collect...

Re: 3 new Bacharach/Costello songs on Elvis Costello album "Look Now"

Me Japanese Boy, Thanks for that info—can't wait 'til 12 Oct. to get my hands on this. It's been a long time coming but I'm sure it will be well worth the wait! Also as I scrolled down I noticed where Naked Eyes' 1983 debut album "Burning Bridges" will be re-issued on 31 Aug. /w B sides and an exten...

Access to “Extralarge: Black Magic” movie

I don't know why the You Tube link doesn't work but just go over to You Tube and type in: Dionne Warwick Extralarge: Black Magic and that should work.
