New 3CD Box Offers A Heavy Dose Of Rare & Unreleased Iggy Pop Recordings!


Los Angeles, CA - When Michigan based proto-punk band The Stooges called it a day in 1974, the music world mourned the loss of one of the most groundbreaking rock bands ever. Fortunately, the mourning didn’t last long as head Stooge Iggy Pop quickly launched a stunning solo career that arguably eclipsed his auspicious early years. Psychophonic Medicine is an incredible 3CD collection of rare and unreleased gems that focuses on Pop’s crucial late’70s, early ‘80s post-Stooges output. The collection, available everywhere June 23 courtesy of Cleopatra Records, features studio outtakes from the landmark albums The Idiot and Party including never before released alternate mixes and 2 tracks not previously released in any form! Each of these recordings provides important insight into how Pop evolved from punk pioneer to one of the most diverse and adventurous artists in music.

But the party doesn’t stop there - the set also contains some of Iggy’s most electrifying live performances. Disc 2 is the first ever CD release of the legendary show at Paris Palace 1979. This incredible full-length recording showcases Iggy at his most explosive and audacious, ripping through such favorites as “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” “Cock In My Pocket,” “Kill City” and more! A newly discovered audio source from Pop’s San Francisco performance in 1981 wraps up the collection in fine form with scalding versions of “I Need More,” “Lust For Life,” “TV Eye,” “1969,” “The Winter Of My Discontent” and others. Each of the three discs is packaged in its own wallet and comes with a gorgeous 36-page full color booklet featuring rare photos from the archives of longtime Stooges photographer and co-author of the only authorized Stooges biography, Robert Matheu, who also wrote the liner notes. And if that isn’t enough, the box includes a special bonus track of Iggy’s duet with Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino that was featured on HBO’s True Blood! Both collectors and the curious will find Psychophonic Medicine an irresistible aural trip.

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…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
