John Fogerty-The Long Road Home-In Concert

Artist: John Fogerty
Title: The Long Road Home-In Concert
Format: DVD
Genre:Rock
Label: Concord Music Group
Website


I like what John Fogerty says to the audience at the beginning of this concert. He states his music is simple straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll. I always said the same thing about Fogerty and that is the strongest reason why I continue to enjoy his music-solo and CCR tracks.

The Long Road Home-In Concert is the follow up to his greatest hits compilation, the CD that finally put together the best of CCR and his solo work.

Fogerty is a first class entertainer however; this DVD does not do him complete justice. The camera work is horrendous at times, some of the shots come from the audience’s vantage point, shaking up and down, as if the person running the camera was just as excited as everyone else there. Other than the rollercoaster ride camera work at times, this is a great DVD.

Fogerty has a magical connection to his audience-it is so obvious. The man has a lot of history behind him now, with several generations of listeners supporting his music, both old and new. This is an enviable position for any artist. It is what anyone that has his or her entire lifetime wrapped up in music would want. Fogerty has always been dedicated to the evolution of his music and set on bringing it to the people that made him what he is today. I think the man is the real deal. It is apparent to me that the heart and soul of whom he is, the life force that makes the man tick, is his music and the people that enjoy it so much. This concert puts all of that into proper perspective for all of us longtime fans. Hopefully along the way we bring onboard some new fans too.

It would have been nice to end this great performance with a career retrospective and interview with John but that may be in the next installment from Concord. I have a feeling there will be a lot more to come from Fogerty in the next few years, whether its archival material or new songs, all of us that love his music will surely be getting in line to buy it.

Twenty-seven songs covers a lot of ground and if you have not seen John Fogerty perform or were looking for a fine souvenir of his live act, this is a good start, after all-its Déjà vu all over again.

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018 http://ghost-official.com


With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…
