Bob Seger Part Five

It’s been awhile since I done one of his, but in this blog, Bob Seger Part Five, I will complete this series and move on with him on another, in the near future. So I might as well start, to finish, so you can finish reading, what I started.

Later years: 1988 Present

Bob Seger‘s next record was 1991‘s The Fire Inside, at a time when glam metal, grunge and alternative rock were taking the center. His new music found little exposure on radio or elsewhere. The very same was true of 1995‘s It‘s a Mystery, although the album was certified gold (500,000 copies sold). Nevertheless, in 1994, Seger released Greatest Hits; the compilation album was his biggest-ever record in terms of sales, selling almost ten million cop...

Life And Times Of Benny Goodman Part Five

This blog entitled Life And Times Of Benny Goodman Part Five, is the end, but theirs a new beginning for him soon.

Classical Repertoire

Goodman‘s first classical recording was made on April 25, 1938, when he recorded Mozart‘s Clarinet Quintet in A major, K. 581, with the Budapest Quartet. After his bop period, Goodman furthered his interest in classical music written for the clarinet, and frequently met with top classical clarinetists of the day. In 1946he met Ingolf Dahl, an emigre classical composer on the faculty of the University of Southern California, who was then the musical director of the Victor Borge show.

The week is almost over, and I still have Tom Petty Part Two, to publish. It’s great, I completed what I wanted for this week, which is new to me.

1988–1991: Traveling Wilburys And Solo Career

In 1988, Petty joined George Harrison‘s group, the Traveling Wilburys, which alsoincluded Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne. The band‘s first song, Handlewith Care, was intended as a B-side of one of Harrison‘s singles, but was judgedtoo good for that purpose and the group decided to record a full album, TravelingWilburys Vol. 1. A second Wilburys album, mischievously titled Traveling WilburysVol. 3 and recorded without the recently deceased Orbison, followed in 1990. Thealbum was named Vol. 3 as a response to a series of bootlegged studio sessionsbeing

Bonnie Raitt Part Two

I wasn’t sure if I should do this one,Bonnie Raitt Part Two yet, without doing Part Three tomorrow. However if I wasn’t going to do this one, then I should I do Part Three, without Part Two. People would laugh at me, thinking why put out Part Three without Part Two. So I decided to have Part Two, so nobody can laugh at me. (You can laugh ate me, but I can’t hear it, unless you live by me).

Tongue And Groove And Release From Warner Brothers

In 1983, as Raitt was finishing work on her follow-up album, entitled Tongue and Groove, Warner Brothers cleaned house, dropping a number of major artists such as Van Morrison and Arlo Guthrie from their roster. The day after mastering was completed on Tongue & Groove, the record label dropped Raitt also.
