CP S12 EP37 2018

 Monday Oct 1 2018 – Happy October. As the month begins I say thanks for coming by here every week.  The visits in September were the best they’ve been since 2015.  I appreciate it.  I’ll be reviewing the KEEP or DELETE votes as we get closer to the end of the year for the Best of 2018 show.

This week’s Monday Morning Music Meeting below includes new music from Whiskey Autumn, and Eldren.

Happy 2nd birthday to the Music District in Fort Collins, one of the fantastic supporters of the show. Regardless of their financial support, what they do is transformative and inspiring in Fort Collins, and to the benefit of our regional and state music scene.  I do encourage you to visit their website, and visit them in person sometime.  I’m honored and thankful for their support.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Congratulations to the Burroughs for the incredible opportunity to be a part of Songscape. a very cool project done in association with the non-profit organization Sustain Music & Nature.

The Burroughs are the first non-acoustic folk band to participate from around the country. The band was asked to create a song inspired by their experience following a week-long retreat in Roosevelt National Forest. And… if you’ve ever seen the Burroughs live you know Johnny loves to dance 😉

Proceeds from song sales help support Sustain, the band, and public lands.”

2015 LP/EP/SP Titles

Goat_Logo_color_on_whiteOkay .. I have to admit, this has been one seriously messed up year as far as new releases are concerned.  Not only have there been far fewer that I have normally identified by this time of the year, stations have been playing fewer than in the past couple of years.  I’m not sure why this is to be honest.  I realize we don’t track everything .. there’s no metal or rap in this list as nearly all of the stations I survey are of the AAA and/or CMJ format with strong focus on Americana, bluegrass, funk, etc.

I lost all my spin data from Jan through March (Q1) and have only been able to capture spin data in April and May (Q2) … so I have suspended my monthly TOP 40 spins chart for the time being.  With this being my busy season, perhaps I can get back to it again this fall/winter .. we’ll have to wait and see.

There are 138 titles represented in this list.  If you are aware of some titles not on it that should be, please inform me.  I’ve been maintaining this list now for over five years and I’d to keep it as up to date as possible.

Much love,
goat

UPDATE – JUNE 15

Some how or another June has gotten the better of me, and stolen the time I normally devote to posting here.  Sorry for that.  Truly.  There was no new show this past week.  I was in New Jersey attending to family business.  I did, however, get to go to the Greeley  Blues Jam.  Gotta say, the Burroughs and the Frails stole the show on the Colorado music stage.

The Colorado Sound S8|EP36 + Review/the Burroughs

IMG_20140901_182522_349My outdoor festival season ended this weekend.  This was the 3rd year for Fortober Fest, an end of season downtown street party in Fort Collins, produced by the Downtown Business Association (Colorado Brewers Festival, New West Fest).  Highlights from this year included the Young Ancients, Sofie Reed, Soul School, Romeo Delight (a live tribute to Van Halen), Whiskey Blanket, and the Burroughs from Greeley, among the fourteen bands picked to celebrate bikes, beers, bands and the end to the summer.

It really does take a lot to stop me in my tracks and make me listen… even harder to make me turn around while I’m walking off – busy with some activity or another when I’m working a show.  That’s more or less true for nearly all of us working live music events for a living.   We see and hear a lot of bands and at least for me, most of the time I hear them in the background.

The Burroughs from Greeley

I feel like the guy who walked in at the end of the party, when I say I just discovered Johnny Burroughs.  Nothing online will prepare you for the energy of a Burroughs’ live show.  I had to be convinced to book them sight-unseen, based purely on their reputation with some friends of mine in the scene.  I’ll need no coaxing from here on out – I’m all in, at least so far as the live show goes.

The only weakness I see with the band is there’s no need for two guitarists, both of whom are adequate, but are both doing more or less the same thing, and neither of whom really shined in their role.  The four piece horn section worked extremely well as an ensemble unit.  The husband-wife rhythm section was there – laying down a foundation that never once got in the way of the exceptional arrangements that Johnny danced and sang over.  A trio of backup singers would be nice also.

Johnny Burroughs

It as an Otis Redding song that caused me to stop.  It was the engaging smile, red hair, dance moves, passion and pure soul that held me in place for hits by James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and others.  This ain’t no velveeta cheese on wonder bread cover band in a Holiday Inn dressing up and playing for an after work middle age suburban audience.  This was raw, visceral, emotional, ass shakin’, instantaneously crowd pleasing soul.  I will NEVER be surprised should I see panties being tossed at this guy from the audience (they still do that don’t they?). 

Any of us old enough to have seen Michael or Stevie in the late 70s and early 80s would be transported… Add in elements of the likes of Tom Jones or Sammy Davis, Jr in their day and the ghosts are there, lurking in the mannerisms Johnny puts on full display inside his tight space on stage, sandwiched between the horns and guitars… far too little space to contain this new, bright, smiling, happy as hell to be there song and dance entertainer.

PS… the record really does not do the band’s show justice – this is a band meant for the stage, not the studio (at least for now).

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Two videos this week… one from the closing band at Fortober Fest, Romeo Delight A Van Halen Tribute, and one from my pal Chris Daniels and his band the Kings with Freddi Gowdy on Rocky Mountain PBS.  Enjoy.
