CD FOCUS:
Darol Anger, Emy Phelps & Friends – Music Of Our People (60s Album) Compilation CD http://www.darolanger.com @darolanger
Influential violinist/octave mandolinist, Darol Anger, teams up with frequent co-conspirator, guitarist Emy Phelps, for a series of favorite songs, of the 1960s. The guest artists on this
album help elevate it, from ‘cover album’ status, to a new statement on New Acoustic (or, simply Americana) music. Many of their favorite musicians, in the Northeast U.S., contributed
much, to these songs. Darol has done similar projects, during his time with Republic of Strings, and a prior folk album, of highly arranged material, (Heritage), with major-label guests.
From this CD, I aired: “Stone Soul Picnic”, “Killin’ The Blues”, & “The Tattler/I Think It’s Going To Work Out Fine”.

Happy birthday greetings to Miles High Productions founder Chip Schutzman! www.mileshighproductions.com
Davy Jones passed away this week.  Davy was bassist for Williamsport, PA songwriter Johnny J. Blair in recent years.I believe you’ve heard Davy on JJB’s material.  www.johnnyjblair.com
A radio promoter asked me on Facebook about my thoughts on Americana.  Since I’ve already given you my thoughts on the general genres of folk and roots, I’m too happy to comply:
Americana appears to be something that’s not necessarily in the pop category. Akin to folk, it’s about realism, and not always positive realism.  The songs contain innate meanings of what today’s America is like. Would the songs suggest meanings relevant to the days of yesteryear, they would be called ‘roots’.  Americana differs from roots for its modernism. Remember, there is still the Great American Songbook, all those jazz standards and easy listening songs out there. That’s not Americana, just a different interpretation.    Americana resembles roots and country and pretty much anything that are not on the major (Billboard, etc.) radio/sales charts. Suggested artists: Mark McKay, Larry McMurtry, Andrew McKnight, Mark Erelli.  Here of course is where I should tell you my definitions of alternative, indie and underground music, but I’ll save it for next time.
For some non-radio content:
March’s lions are ever-present, what with the cold grey weather  Already looking forward to sunnier days (sometimes; I still like grey days) and putting away the space heater.  Saved a lot on electricity from last year!  Stomach is just about at full strength but I’m off coffee, soda and common fruit juice until further notice (doctor, heal thyself).    Some of you may know that I am returning to elements of holistic health and healing.  Not certain it will be a huge career move given the economy.
A weeks ago I located a gourmet shop in Old City called…wait for it….Gourmet Of Old City.  They carry Big Train (powdered) chai tea! This will be my go-to store once a month; it’s about how long the chai lasts here.  www.gourmetofoldecity.com  www.bigtrain.com
Handicapping continues in earnest for this weekend’s big horse racing events. I’m off wagering outside of the Future Wager pools until Derby Day itself. I’ve had a losing year so far, and am taking a big break from this sort of investing.

********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of my shows.
On RCB Novus Ordo: Australia’s The Valery Trails and Philly songwriter Rob Lytle are the standouts on this week’s show.  Rob has great personnel on his CD including Fats Kaplin, Karyn Oliver, & Thomm Jutz.  Dan & Faith, friends of The Kennedys, take a similar path as that other dynamic duo with an album inspired by dreams.
RCB proper:  The opening track by Forces Of Nature has really grown on me; it’s an absolute keeper.   First segment began with another new one by Garrison Starr. Her newest album will be available later in the spring.  Catie Curtis and Edie Carey (& Jenna Lindbo) perform tonight at The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI.  Jann Klose & Avi Wisnia with some laid-back tunes back-to-back, following it up with slightly more uptempo tunes by Ben Knighten and Helen Austin (drawing upon Helen’s Song of the week CD, her personal song-a-week challenge). Segment 2 includes Heth & Jed (I cited a Gothamist.com reference having to do with a lawsuit against NYC), followed by another spin of Darlingside’s 2010 EP. They have a subscription-only album ready to launch this summer. Tumbledown returns to the airwaves while frontman Mike Herrera (MxPx) plans recording new material.  The song I spun “Great Big World” now has a video, available on their site.   Took a turn to pop and folk in segment 3, including one by Brother Sun. Well, not exactly their song, but actually an unreleased song penned by Bob Dylan & Danny O’Keefe. I wonder how they came across the song in the first place.    Meg Braun was opening act for Vance Gilbert at Christopher St. Coffeehouse in NYC on 3/1.  Danny Schmidt and Carrie Elkin continue to tour together in many fine establishments along with the SXSW experience just ahead.    I spun songs with ‘guilt’ references in their latest CDs.   Closed out with 2 ‘train’ references; Matt Turk’s raucous version of “Wabash Cannonball”, and Andrew Calhoun’s reworking of the classic “John Henry”
