        OK, the name of the PBS special this blog post is about is Joni 75: A Birthday Celebration. But I didn’t see it until Canadian singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell was almost 11 months on her way to age 76.

        I’ve been a big fan of Mitchell’...

        It’s that time of year when costumed creatures show up at our doors asking for treats.

        No, I’m not talking about Halloween. Not that they’re all extravagantly costumed, but the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2020...

        Peter Edward Baker left the planet a couple weeks ago — and left it without one of the best rock drummers ever.

        Known as Ginger — because he was one, as in very red-haired — from childhood on, Baker succumbed to heart problems that ha...

        (Resuming my blog post about The Band and Abbey Road.)

        Not surprised that the “Paul Is Dead” hoax helped sell more of the earlier Beatle LPs, but I think Abbey Road would have sold well, regardless. “Something” was a No. 1 s...

        I’m speaking of The Band’s self-titled sophomore effort, issued Sept. 2...

        Monday is the first day of autumn, in some ways my favorite season. If only it didn’t back up against winter …

        Anyway, in this time of the most obvious change in the seasons — green leaves turning brown, the days growing noticeably sh...

        Amongst the additions to my audio library the past year or so were several albums — some from Cousin Bill’s stash, some from Big Brother Jim’s Ceaseless CD Search — by George Harrison.

        Those solo projects by the ex-Beatle included...

Taking Stock of Woodstock

        I’ll begin this post with full disclosure: I did not attend the Woodstock Music & Art Fair, the 50th anniversary of which will be observed this weekend.

        I heard about it in the news and after the fact, heard the li...

        So now we come to The Days Between.

        You don’t have to be a Deadhead to know what that phrase means, but it helps. Those Days begin Aug. 1, the birthdate (in 1942) of Jerome John Garcia, and end Aug. 8, the date in 1995 when the long-t...
