Glenn - I really think that it depends how much of a GNR fan you are. Appetite came out when I was a freshman in high school and we listened to this and Lies during high school, and then Use your Illusion 1 and2 came out early in college for me, and I have been a big fan for a long time now.

Now, with that said,it is not Apptetite. It is a little more mainstream rock, but the guitars and drums are pretty good, and it is always good to hear Axl's voice. It is a little rougher than anything on Use Your Illusion, but still very story driven. I like it so far, but haven't found my Mr. Brownstone, Paradise City, Used to Love Her, so I had to Kill Her, or anything like that yet.

I think that if you are a fan at all, you should get it. It was only $10 on Itunes, so youcan't beat that.

How do you like it? I’ve heard very mixed reviews.

Nice tune. Pat Metheny used to regularly play at Northern Illinois University. One year while I was attending NIU, Pat was playing at the Eygptian Theatre in town. I was not at the show but apparently Pat made a bit of a mistake by saying something like, "We like to come to NIU to work the kinks out before we start our real tour."

Lots of Booing and people leaving the show. I'm not sure if he's ever been back.

HP 12 is probably my favorite "every day" scotch, super smooth but with way more personality than say a Dalwhinnie.

Listening to one of my staff complain about her performance review. Blah.
Ultra-Lounge: Christmas Cocktails, Pt. 2

The liner notes alone are worth the price of the CD... classic stuff! And the music is pretty damn cool as well. Jimmy McGriff's version of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" (as the liner notes say), smolders like a Dura-Flame log. Wonderful! Peggy Lee's "Happy Holiday" is exceptional, especially for the musicianship of the orchestra backing her. And what could be cooler than Dean Martin's rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside"? Cool

I only play Christmas music from after Thanksgiving until Christmas, so it gets limited airtime. But when it's time to put it on, the three "Christmas Cocktails" CD's are at the top of the play list.

Thanks for the heads-up, I will seek it out. I just love how Costello crosses over into so many genres. I look forward to watching it.

I'm not sure what happened to Elton. In my opinion, his early career was brilliant, then he lost his way I thought.

The influence of Leon Russell and Laura Nyro helped create greatness ( my opinion) early on.

You have put me in the mood for a little Burn Down the Mission. Cool
