Airplane


Hello again fans of quality rock music:

I hope the New Year has gotten off to an amazing start.

Please check out the CD below especially since the chances of me applauding any artist after 1979 is rarer than a winning Lottery Ticket.

Have a fantastic week,

Craig

April Martin- Pennies In A Jar 2010

http://www.aprilmartin.com/

The chances of an artist or band that secured a record contract after 1979 making its way to my ears would be as prevalent as a Lunar Eclipse coinciding with the Winter Solstice.

April Martin’s magnificent effort possesses all the ingredients to be the exception to the rule.  The music is the star; she is unassuming throughout the fourteen tracks, recalling her influences while chiseling the road ahead, and all along the journey always comfortable in her own skin thanks to the success of her day jobs (the practice of psychology and public speaking).

April’s admiration for Joan Baez, Buffy St. Marie, and Peter, Paul & Mary from the 1960’s folk scene is evident and the same can be said for the hankering of the Everly Brothers, the Beatles, and Carole King.

April’s collection of songs came to the attention of Peter Calo (Carly Simon, numerous other session works, as well as a recording artist in his own right).  Peter produced the CD with the culmination that properly articulates April’s vision while splendid to the senses.

The conjurations of the folk oriented tracks are evident from the initial listening.  “Pennies In A Jar” doesn’t take a multitude of attention before you appreciate the contentment between the lyrical and music content.  From the openings notes of “Out of My Hands” (a defectless choice to start the festivities) to the final seconds of “Warrior of the Heart”, April has guided us through a rippleless sea.

I’m irresolute to remove the disc from the CD player knowing it may be another couple of centuries before I’m enthralled again by a release of recent vintage.

All the best,

Craig Fenton

Welcome Jefferson Rockers:

How are things going today?  I hope the snow/ice that has hit most of Airplane Land has avoided your section of town.

Thanks for the nice feedback about the Great Society rare track and the Paul Kantner goodie from yesterday.  I posted the link once again (below) so all can enjoy the journey.

Want some great live rock and roll?

Somebody that has played with the Jefferson Starship and is friends with people in the Jefferson Family (Paul Scannell) will be bringing his rock and roll talents to the road.

You’ll be rocking on every note if you live in or nearby:

Let’s fly out west for Paul Kantner, Marty Balin, and Jack Casady also known as KBC for:

Hello Weekend Rockers:

Are you getting by the cold front?  It is 127 below zero as I type with gloves on.

The better news is the rock and roll is solid.  If you take a ticket for our flight you can enjoy the sounds of a Jefferson Airplane from over 40 years ago.

The city is Philadelphia.  The time 1968 and we check out:

Philly Jam

Enjoy.  Got to go rock and roll.

Welcome to Air Rock 2009:

Thanks for taking the time to board the flight.  A great one from the Rock Tent Vaults as 3 Airplanes combine to be KBC.

Balin, Kantner, Casady (KBC BAND)

6/23/85 “EMERGENCY AIRLIFT INTERNATIONAL BENEFIT”

GOLDEN GATE PARK,

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

Ride The Tiger

Today

Performed before the album was released!!

Slick Aguilar guitar

Keith Crossan on sax

Darrell Verdusco plays the drums

I felt bad listening to the sports talk shows today.  The Giant fans were positive they would at worst play for the NFC championship.

Many people thought baseball great Jim Rice wouldn’t get into the Hall Of Fame because the way he acted toward the media.  He made it!  Rickey Henderson did too.  The joke is Jim’s speech will be 2 seconds and Rickey is already talking!!

Enjoy the sounds.  Got to go rock and roll.


Please fly here for great KBC rock and roll:
