Twin Tone Records Catalog Sampler

I'm not sure how Twin Tone Records got away with putting Harmon Killebrew on the cover of their catalog sampler--must have been a sweetheart deal (and if that's not Killebrew, then I don't know who it is). It's a classic, through and through.

This is typical of a catalog sampler--you have artists who are all over the map. You even have Robyn Hitchcock on this thing, which blows my mind. The package works well as a marketing tool because it delivers eighteen tracks from so many different and prominent artists. Something tells me Twin Tone could have been a much bigger deal if they had gotten a better break. In terms of American record labels, I have always thought Twin Tone should have been given more credit for finding so many amazing artists.

Jon Brookes 1969-2013


Jon Brookes was a spectacular drummer. He helped define the "Madchester" genre of music by providing a dance beat that helped propel the Charlatans well beyond their origins.

Pixar's Brave has a Trailer


I have to say that, of all the films coming out, I have a lot more enthusiasm for this film than for the planned sequels that Pixar and Disney are lining up. It looks like they are spending a fortune on this one, and I'm glad that they are willing to make that kind of investment for what I hope is a new story.
