On Saturday Afternoons In 1963 In Coolsville


Rickie Lee Jones (born November 8, 1954) is an American vocalist, musician, songwriter and producer. Over the course of a career of over three decades, Jones has recorded in various musical styles including rock, R&B, blues, pop, soul, and jazz standards.

Her songwriting has been characterized as “a blend of bravado and vulnerability [that] wavers on indefinable borders”. She is also known for her unique singing style, especially in live performances. One concert reviewer, describing her rendering of “We Belong Together”, states she “reached her apex, skating from swells into near screams into breathy whispers, from pointillist staccato scats into brassy, trumpetlike bursts”.

Jacob Miller’s Greatest Hits!


There’s been a lot of reggae added to the collection lately and unfortunately, I can’t find a lot on any of the artists. Luckily, I’ve gotten the roomie to start doing his reviews so I’m going to push for this one to be one of his first full album reviews.

Crazy About The Rhythm Of Another Heartache

So. Much. Rod Stewart!! I suppose it’s a good thing he’s had such a long run in the industry since he has a few divorces under his belt and lots of kids…

Stewart is known for his liaisons with women and has had eight children, by five different mothers. A few of his children are in the entertainment industry as well. In reference to his divorces, Stewart was once quoted as saying, “Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and just give her a house“.
