Rock and Roll Time Machine

A ride in the musical time machine can be a pretty costly proposition. Some of the new old rock and roll coming out these days is NOT CHEAP! neilarchives Neil Young has a new 10-disc DVD set out on Blu-ray that'll set you back $349.99 retail. That's not a typo....nearly 350-dollars! Neil Young Archives 1963-1972 goes all the way back to Neil's first band in Winnipeg, the Squires, and covers his time with Buffalo Springfield as well as the beginning of his solo career, as well as the start of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. It includes nearly 60 previously unreleased songs, rare interviews, radio commercials, and a hardcover book with more archival material. It will come out on regular CD later, but Neil chose Blu-ray for its superior sonic quality.  My question is, are people really buying this? And if so, can I borrow it? woodstock1Want to jump in the Rock and Roll Time Machine and go to upstate New York, August 1969?  This year marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, and just in time for Father's Day, they're re-releasing the movie, AGAIN. Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music Directors Cut 40th Anniversary Edition will only set you back 59.98, retail. (Bonus: it is in a groovy looking fringed box!)  And on June 30th, you can buy another Woodstock CD box set. The Woodstock Experience features complete performances from 5 of the performers at the festival: Santana, Janis Joplin, Sly and The Family Stone, Johnny Winter and Jefferson Airplane. The 10-cd set includes 25 previously unreleased tracks, 6 posters and other stuff that's kind of cool that you'll probably look at once. Set aside $99.99 for that one. When I was first buying records, I saved up my babysitting money to pick up classics from Supertramp, REO Speedwagon, and Styx. Just think how long I'd have to babysit to buy this stuff!

World's Worst iPod: Brighter Side of Darkness "Love Jones"

The cool thing about Coastal Carolina's coach
This won't be enough to make you root for them, but Coastal Carolina's Coach has some pretty cool musical stuff on his resume. Back in the 1960s, when Cliff Ellis was in college, he was in a garage band called the Villagers, and they cut a...

World's Worst iPod: England Dan and John Ford Coley "We'll Never Have to Say Goo
When someone says to you "Sappy 70's music," I bet you automatically think of England Dan and John Ford Coley. They had a lot of "soft rock" hits during that decade. We put ED and JFC in the same category as Seals and Crofts, Bread, and later--Air...
