Nilsson crafted complex multi-layered vocal pop for his amazing voice, which had a range of three and one-half octaves. He wrote beautiful, personal, and emotional songs that earned him the respect of his peers, critical acclaim, and occasional…

The Isley Brothers - Givin' It Back

Thought I'd share a little Isley Brothers...

 

 

So much has gone under the bridge that we’ve all but forgotten that era when racial lines were not obliterated but smudged in such a way that it was a little tough to find the line between black and white. By the early 1970s we had been through the civil rights upheaval and the backlash that made martyrs out of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.…

Books are People Too....

Here are three interesting, off beat books I think you should know about and consider them for a summer read....If you like your literature a bit on the edge, I would say, you gotta get 'em! I have read American Bastards and it was certainly as entertaining, insightful and weird as any book I have read to a date. I have read The Chitlin Circuit at three or four times and use it often as a reference. I'm just starting Sun Ra' This Planet Is Doomed....You could say I'm booked for the whole…
