Gerald Levert: Gerald’s World

Gerald Levert is arguably the most consistent R&B vocalist of this generation.

    Al Kooper: Rare & Well Done: The Greatest and Rarest of Al Kooper


    Diana Krall: The Look of Love


Macy Gray: The Id

What Gray possesses is a distinct voice and even more distinct personality that has given her the kind of visibility that she could have never imagined-the gawky brown girl with the squeaky voice has perhaps “queered” our perceptions of “The Diva”.

Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci: How I Long to Feel That Summer in My Heart

Gorky's Zygotic Mynci are often tagged as a Britpop band, mainly, it seems, because they play a sometimes quirky brand of indie fare that happened to come to the attention of English listeners during the '90s amid the Cool Britannia hype and hoopla . . . [however the] sound of GZM clearly challenged the Englishness that dominated Britpop and questioned the terms of its urban, largely male, rock hegemony.

Alice Cooper: Dragontown


Collective Soul: 7even Year Itch

Bob Dylan: “Love and Theft”

On September 11, Bob Dylan released a master work buzzing and sparking with the depthless energy of American folk music and charged with a faith in the goodness and potential harmony of the human community as wild and oceanic as Whitman’s.

Ryan Adams: Gold

Gold feels like a record hiding behind masks. Maybe Adams has spent so many years laying his heart out on the line that he’s trying to create a little distance

The Lord of the Rings (1978/2001)


    Various Artists: Swaraj: Future Asian Beat


Various Artists: The I-10 Chronicles 2: One More for the Road


Various Artists: African Odyssey


    Robert Pete Williams: self-titled

Though we associate the folk and blues revivals with the 1960s, the movement has its origins much earlier. The interest in an 'authentic' folk as opposed to 'pop' music has a long history.
