    Stevie Ray Vaughan just shredding Jimi Hendrix' "Voodoo Chile - Slight Return" and a bunch of other stuff, going all the way back to Montreux 1982, their first big break. This is part of an hour-long retrospective called "Stevie Ray Vaughan: Live - Play Hard And Floor It!" on PBS. It's interspersed with commentary by Chris Layton, his drummer. Fabulous stuff. So glad I got to see him, even just once.

    Thank all the contributors for PBS. Specials like this help to make up for all the horrible awful self-help nonsense the Miami stations usually run during pledge time. I may have to fire off a check, even though this is not part of a fundraising drive. THIS is the stuff!

    Thanks for the tip, I didn't know he had a new one out, and I see the MP3 version is already at Amazon. I really love Ain't Love Strange, esp. the title track and "Fabio & Liberace".

    I need to explore more of his music. I was turned onto him by the late grate X-Country on XM, right after Ain't Love Strange came out -- great stuff.

    Sorry about the title that was deleted. I did not mean to stretch the boundries. Try the "Mission Temple Fireworks Stand" CD.

    I had no interest in the artist Paul Thorn until I saw that one of his titles had been deleted from a forum post. Now I want to research him and listen to as much of his music as possible...How ironic is that?...

    I saw Paul Thorn more than ten years ago, solo, opening for Jeff Beck - poor guy. He'd had a hard time the previous gig in NYC, thrown to the wolves. But in CT he got a much more cordial reception, and in fact sold out of his CDs. Glad to hear he's still at it.

    I'd never heard Arabic-Christian hymns before until I heard this version of the Kyrie Eleison. I'm kind of hooked on the minor harmonies.

    Mandolin Blues by Yank Rachell's Tennessee Jug-Busters - Earthy, raw, passionate and timeless. A blues master at work with his mandolin and vocals. Classic. Should be required listening for anyone interested in playing the blues on mandolin... ♫ "You got to do the Boogie Mama..."

    Paul Thorn is a local (Tupelo) boy-made-good, and is a total nutball live. A buddy from high school plays keyboards with him. Heard him on the local country station on Valentine's day trying to sing this serious love ballad but he got choked on a mouthful of biscuit and had to regroup - all live. That'd be un-selfconcious country folk right there.

    'Baroque Music for Mandolin and Lute' by Caterina Lichtenberg (mandolin) and Mirko Schrader (Lute). Pretty amazing...Speed is one thing...but speed with pristine clarity and definition. Wow!
