The Electric Croude

Fe BLUES ary 2013

Musical trends may come and go as whimsically as the big snow storm that never appeared this winter. Its nostalgia. Coming from the Northeast where real seasons existed, I prefer each of the climactic quadrants to behave in a certain way. Of course, they won’t. And that’s as good a reason as any to highlight some unsual blues-y moods.

The Christmas Croude 27th Anniversary

Judging by industry sales, it safe to assume--at least in the past anyway--that Christmas music has been an important part of the Season.

I grew up with it and special special memories. Back in the day--vinyl. Samplers were the bomb. Everybody put out great long playing  samplers. Even those you would not expect like Firestone Tires. And often with world class peformers. My own introduction to "medievalism" came from an Ames Brothers recording of Good Kind Wencelas--actually an after Christmas carol. Funny how 2 and half minutes can change your worldview.
