Chris Cornell Euphoria Mourning

Posted by Steve Rosen on September 4, 2015 at 4:46am 0 Comments

Following the release of Down on the Upside, Soundgarden undertook what would become a 15-year hiatus before rejoining. Brimming with songs that didn't fit into what the alt rock band had been recording, singer Chris Cornell set out on his own to create Euphoria Morning, his first solo album. That debut release has since been re-released and renamed Euphoria Mourning - the title Cornell originally wanted to use - and it sounds as vibrant, essential and edgy today as it did upon the day it came out 16 years ago.

Co-produced with Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider from indie rock band Eleven, Euphoria Mourning is full of the pop-inspired sensibilities and more melodic elements Cornell wanted to bring to Soundgarden's sound. In fact, "Flutter Girl" was an outtake from Superunknown, a quirky and haunting track painted with acoustic guitars, shimmering electrics and slide bits reminiscent of George Harrison. One can only imagine the treatment this might have gotten had Cornell recorded it with his bandmates.

There is a beautiful and fragile sensibility about this album. Many of the songs are organic, bare bones, in-your-face recordings with Cornell singing stark again a single acoustic guitar. "Sweet Euphoria" is guitar and voice and as moving as anything on the album.

Cornell has never sounded better. The album was recorded at Johannes' house in West Hollywood and you can virtually hear his voice drifting down the hallways and into bedrooms.

If you're a Soundgarden fan, you need to hear this. Nobody sings or writes like Chris Cornell and Euphoria Mourning proves…

Alice Cooper: The Studio Albums 1969 - 1983 (Warner Music/Rhino Entertainment Company)

Posted by Steve Rosen on August 13, 2015 at 7:00am 0 Comments

Alice Cooper may have started life as a cross-dressing, boa (feathered and constrictor} brandishing, and mascara wearing rocker but over the years and countless reinventions later, he emerged as one of the most preeminent and iconic musicians of all time. That legacy is contained here in this stunning 15-CD collection representing Cooper's career.

Included here:

 

THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1969-1983

 Pretties For You (1969)

 Easy Action (1970)

 Love It To Death (1971)

 Killer (1971)

 School’s Out (1972)

 Billion Dollar Babies (1973)

 Muscle Of Love (1973)

Welcome To My Nightmare (1975)

Alice Cooper Goes To Hell (1976)

Lace And Whiskey (1977)

From The Inside (1978)

Flush The Fusion (1980)

Special Forces (1981)

Zipper Catches Skin (1982)

DaDa (1983)

Accompanied by the extraordinary tandem guitars of Michael Bruce and Glen Buxton and a rhythm section composed of drummer Neal Smith and bassist Dennis Dunaway, Cooper recorded classics like "School's Out," "Elected," "I'm Eighteen," "No More Mr. Nice Guy" and many others.

In 1975, Cooper began a solo career and all those albums are also represented here.

Alice Cooper has been one of the most enduring and engaging artists to emerge in the last 40 years. That has all been dependent on a series of remarkable albums and undeniably great songs. For the first time, you can hear everything in one box set. it will make you realize just how many mindblowing songs Cooper created during a career that continues to this…

John Mayall Find a Way to Care (Forty Below Records)

Posted by Steve Rosen on August 12, 2015 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

Find a Way to Care is blues legend John Mayall's 56th album -give or take a live album, compilation or a series of Internet-only releases. Mayall began his career 50 years ago with the release of John Mayall Plays John Mayall. On that album, the opening track was a brisk blues piece called "Crawling Up the Hill," which was punctuated by Mayall's husky voice, rambling organ.

Though five decades have passed since the bluesman first recorded and a lot has changed, not a lot has changed. On Find a Way To Care, the Englishman is still belting out blues rockers, dancing along the keys of a B-3 and bringing life to a genre that he all but originated in his native England.

The new album finds John supported by guitarist Rocky Athas, bassist Greg Rzab and drummer Jay Davenport, Mayall's band for seven years now. Mayall has written four of the 12 tracks here including the infectious blues groove "Ain't No Guarantees." The remainder of the songs are covers such as Don D. Robey's "Mother In Law Blues," and Percy Mayfield's "The River's Invitation."

Mayall sings superbly all these years later and he is as nimble as a mouse as he scurries along the keys. Producer Eric Corne says, "I really wanted to feature John's keyboard playing on this record. he's truly one of the most lyrical, economical and underrated keyboardists around." Augmenting John's keyboards is a superb horn section.

It may be five decades since he first stepped into a studio but John Mayall still understands and sings the blues in a way no one else does.

Taylor Hawkins

Posted by GotGame on August 11, 2015 at 4:28pm 0 Comments

Most of us know that before Taylor Hawkins found a full-time gig with Foo Fighters, he served as Alanis Morissette’s drummer during her Jagged Little Pill era. But, did you know that Hawkins also ripped through a Van Halen cover in 1987 at the Laguna Beach High School Battle of the Bands?

Here, Hawkins – who was in grade 9 at the time – tears through a rendition of the Van Halen classic, “Panama,” all the while rocking an amazing ’80s haircut and bowtie. Fortunately, camcorder footage of this momentous occasion has been unearthed and given to the world. Thank you Internet, thank you.
