|Led Zeppelin - Tangerine|
(Aug 30, 2005 - 05:11)
Who sings along with Plant on this? JPJ? Jimmy?!?
I would imagine it is John Paul Jones singing with Robert Plant. Jimmy Page really can't sing!
|Rickie Lee Jones - Up from the Skies|
(Jun 16, 2005 - 06:00)
|Ricky Lee Jones covering a Jimi Hendrix song???? Interesting ... not awful, but a little twisted for so early in the morning ...! The Quite Likeable rating is leaning on Jimi's songwriting, not necessarily her voice!
|Queen - Keep Yourself Alive|
(Apr 11, 2005 - 18:08)
|Quick - someone get me my 70's phaser for my guitar!! You gotta love that intro! Brian May definitely has a one-of-a-kind guitar sound! |
|Beck - Earthquake Weather|
(Mar 25, 2005 - 08:21)
|It seems like Bech has matured? I have missed most of what he has done since "I'm a Loser Baby!", but this one is pretty good.|
|Dr. John - Let The Good Times Roll|
(Mar 25, 2005 - 08:15)
|Great version of the song ... it kind of makes you wish he was playing along with Stevie Ray Vaughan on this one! (Stevie's version really ROCKS!)|
|Jeff Buckley - Grace|
(Mar 22, 2005 - 12:57)
|Sorry, but this song is my first intro to Jeff Buckley and it is HORRIBLE. What is up with the singing??? I know many people love him, but this song is awful.
P.S. - What did this guy die from?
|The Beatles - Rain|
(Mar 22, 2005 - 08:05)
|OK, I mean, what is the deal ... how can ONE BAND write SOOO many fantastic songs?? Really. Even ones like this one that didn't get regular radio play are FANTASTIC! Those guys really knew how to compose a perfect Rock and Roll song.
I still just blows my mind that one band could be that good. I am not a Beatles fanatic, but I really appreciate the impact they made on Rock and Roll. Truely phenominal. (Man, I gotta see Paul McCartney live before he dies or stops playing!)
|Audioslave - Be Yourself|
(Mar 18, 2005 - 08:38)
|Poor selection from Audioslave. They have some good stuff, but not this track. Chris Cornell is way off this one, as well as the rest of the band. Where is the Rock 'n Roll?? Not here .....|
|Grateful Dead - Friend Of The Devil|
(Mar 18, 2005 - 08:32)
|Well, I grew up as basically an Anti-Deadhead, but you have to admit that this was a decent song, and you can't deny the impact they had on music in general. I do dig the little guitar ditty in the beginning!
Where is my guitar??
|Supergrass - Evening Of The Day|
(Mar 11, 2005 - 15:33)
|Supergrass really is a fantastic band. I don't love this most recent album, but this is an entertaining song. The earlier stuff really rocks!|
|Eric Clapton - The Core|
(Mar 11, 2005 - 11:49)
|A must-have album for everyone's collection! Great guitar work on this cut! |
|Elmore James - Dust My Broom|
(Mar 09, 2005 - 07:59)
|FANTASTIC - Elmore James was a phenominal blues artist, guitarist, and singer. The CD King of the Slide Guitar is great, beginning to end!|
|Counting Crows - Anna Begins|
(Mar 09, 2005 - 06:51)
|I really wish this guy would stop his whining ... what an awful singer. :puke:
If I only had a hammer
|Shawn Colvin - Wichita Skyline|
(Mar 09, 2005 - 06:47)
|Shawn Colvin really is a very talented singer / songwriter, and this is a perfect example of that. More Shawn Colvin!|
|Ozric Tentacles - Aura Borealis|
(Mar 06, 2005 - 17:33)
Wow.. Ozric Tentacles on RP. I love this station =)
I can't believe it either - GO RP!! That's awesome!
|Pete Yorn - Come Back Home|
(Mar 06, 2005 - 15:50)
|No comments since 2004 ... I guess no one really cares about this? He sure does sound like Eddie Vedder!|
|Los Lobos - Angel Dance|
(Mar 04, 2005 - 05:52)
|Los Lobos are a very under rated band. Many fools think that they are a "one hit wonder" because of La Bamba, mainly because it is the only song that they have heard. They are a very well rounded Blues - Rock band that really tears the place up live! MORE LOS LOBOS!
|Susan Tedeschi - Don't Think Twice, It's All Right|
(Mar 03, 2005 - 18:36)
|Alright! Susan Tedeschi! This CD is very good - great Bluesy stuff with a fantastic voice. She really reminds me of what Bonnie Raitt USED to be in the early days. Way to go Bill - thanks for playing her stuff!|
|Jimmie Vaughan - In the Middle of the Night|
(Mar 03, 2005 - 08:55)
|Jimmie doesn't get the credit he deserves, mainly because his style isn't as flashy as his little brother Stevie's. Jimmie has a great feel for the Blues, and has a great touch on guitar. Remember, he doesn't use a pick either - just bare fingers.
PS - Lou Ann Barton used to play with Stevie Ray Vaughan before he formed Double Trouble with Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton. Some of the music was released on a CD under Lou Ann's name a couple years ago. She is a great Blues vocalist.
|Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat|
(Mar 03, 2005 - 06:42)
I remember barfing to this song, in the back of a bus during summer camp... barrelling down a mountain.
|Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat|
(Mar 03, 2005 - 06:40)
|Did my MOM request this song?? :D/
I have heard it SOOO many times in my childhood that it has kind of stuck a bit ... NOT.
|Jeff Beck - Suspension|
(Mar 03, 2005 - 06:38)
|Jeff Beck STILL is an amazing guitarist ... if you like this, dig up his CD (which is a Soundtrack, I believe) called Frankie's House. FANTASTIC instrumental playing, and a must have!
|Widespread Panic - Ain't Life Grand|
(Mar 02, 2005 - 12:13)
I just cannot imagine anyone thinking Widespread Panic music is awful. This song is a strong representation of their music, driving rock with good musicianship. Incredible album too! Catch them live!
Sorry ecorunner, but I saw them live many years ago and it was pure agony. They are one of two bands that I have walked out on (the other was John Spencer's Blues Explosion). I am very open minded, but it seems that their jams never went anywhere live. I prefer them in the studio (at least with the early albums!).
|Mazzy Star - Still Cold|
(Mar 02, 2005 - 11:18)
Wow, a Mazzy Star song I don't love. It's "nice" but certainly not among their best.
The first Mazzy Star album was very good, but they fell off quickly with the second one.
|Foo Fighters - Times Like These|
(Mar 02, 2005 - 11:14)
It's times like these that we settle for repetitive lyrics from bandmembers left over from truly gifted bands fronted by deceased artists.
Personally I feel that Dave Grohl made a nice departure from Nirvana and really did his own thing. You really can't compare Nirvana music to the music by Dave and the Foo Fighters. The Foo's cover a lot of different ground in their albums, and they really write some catchy, rockin' stuff. Give them a chance - and see them live if you can.
|Foo Fighters - Times Like These|
(Mar 02, 2005 - 11:06)
|Woo Hoo!!! FOO FIGHTERS! Way to go RP - The Foo Fighters really are the best Rock and Roll band out there in today's music world, and they really deserve airplay here too! I love the open-mindedness of this station! |
|Michael Hedges - Ritual Dance|
(Mar 02, 2005 - 07:00)
|Michael Hedges is just phenominal! I have seen him many times over the years, including a show a week before he died, and he really was on top of his game. There will never be another one like him. He was the only solo performer I have evern seen that got a standing ovation after the majority of his songs, including this one, Ritual Dance. RIP Michael.|
|Don Ross - Afraid to Dance|
(Mar 01, 2005 - 11:45)
Absolutely undeniable chops, but the composition seems to go nowhere. I'd like to hear other tracks from him to see what his other writing is like.
I would have to agree with that, but it is still interesting to listen to. Where have all of these guitar tappers come from? Last time I checked, Hedges was the primary innovator of that style - but maybe Leo Kottke before him. Don Ross is interesting, but he needs to expand on that song a bit.
GIMME MORE GUITAR! :goodvibes:
|Joe Satriani - Sleep Walk|
(Mar 01, 2005 - 07:47)
|The song is a classic instrumental, which Joe Satriani should excel at (since he is mainly a instrumentalist), but I agree that is is a soul-less version. If you want to hear a newer, MUCH BETTER version of Sleepwalk, go for Brian Setzer or Danny Gatton's versions of the song.
|Medeski, Martin & Wood - Mami Gato|
(Mar 01, 2005 - 07:11)
|These guys really are fantastic, and they deserve more playtime on RP! I saw them years ago opening up for Los Lobos and they really tore the place up! MORE MMW!! |
|Gomez - Black-Eyed Dog|
(Mar 01, 2005 - 06:33)
|Does this guy sound a lot like Eddie Vedder or what? Is it just me? |
|Ryan Adams - Wonderwall|
(Feb 28, 2005 - 08:34)
I guess you have never heard any blues songs, then, have you.....
Blues artists who cover blues songs are covering OLD blues songs. Wonderwall is a RECENT song, and I agree, it is too early to cover it. The Oasis song was good, but this guy makes it boring.
|Aimee Mann - The Moth|
(Feb 27, 2005 - 18:13)
|Sorry everyone, but ... :puke:
There are too many good singer-songwriter women out there, and she really sounds horrible.
|Fats Waller - I Got Rhythm|
(Feb 27, 2005 - 18:05)
|I love the ways you guys sneak this stuff in .. I would have never expected to hear this on your station! WAY TO GO!
|Michael Hedges - Rickover's Dream|
(Feb 27, 2005 - 17:29)
|Michael Hedges played a Martin D-28 guitar as his main guitar most of the time, as well as another custom 6 string that he really loved. He is mostly known for the "Harp Guitars" that he played a lot. Those had both Bass strings and regular guitar strings on it. What a phenominal guitarist - he is greatly missed.
ave been a BIG fan of Michael Hedges since the mid 80's. Great voice but have always loved his solo guitar stuff. He played a very hollow body guitar which I believe he might have designed?
Another good mix, Bill.
|Michael Hedges - Aerial Boundaries|
(Feb 25, 2005 - 12:42)
|This station continues to catch me off guard - HEDGES IS GOD!! I saw him play many times and he was the best guitarist and performer I have ever seen. If you are a guitar player or guitar enthusiast, do me a favor - BUY ONE OF HIS ALBUMS. When you listen, always remember that this is ONE GUITAR playing ... Michael Hedges did not do overdubs in the studio, and he duplicated all of his songs perfectly live. What a HUGE loss to the musical world when he was killed in a car accident.
Thank you RP for playing this - you made my day!
|Radiohead - Street Spirit (Fade Out)|
(Feb 25, 2005 - 12:15)
|Absolutely fantastic band - period. Truely the Beatles of the past decade, in my opinion, and the Bends is a fantastic ablum from beginning to the end. |
|B.B. King & Bonnie Raitt - Baby I Love You|
(Feb 25, 2005 - 09:29)
|i saw a great show a the Memphis in May Festival with Bonnie Raitt and Keb Mo singing together. MAN they are great together! Now if only Stevie ray Vaughan had lived long enough to duet with Bonnie Raitt, then i would be truely happy!
