This being my first post on the KGB blog site, I'd like to thank Bryan for setting so much of this up and thank Noog for getting his server back online to host our impending webcast. I'm glad that Bryan has begun to almost daily post on this site. I resolve to similarly up my posting quota though I also intend to avoid posting the the kind of mindless drivel he seems to be fond of (seriously, what do politics have to do with burritos?).
Instead I'll focus on the issues. And here's the current issue - the incomprable JJ Cale has recently released an album of new songs with his protege, Eric Clapton (go ahead, voice your complaints). This disc is called Road to Escondido and I anticipate it greatly. It was released on November 7th, though when I went to Borders on Nov 21st in Nashville, TN I was pleasantly surprised to find the album sold out. I have thus made my purchase on a favorite internet site and eagerly await its arrival. Until then here's what I've found on the subject:
A fine article examining this collaboration.
An interesting interview (long and short versions) involving both artists and a few of the new songs.
I don't know if they plan to do any touring together, but, damn, wouldn't that be the day. I'm looking forward to enjoying this album and I hope you're able to do the same.
I'll catch ya further on down the trail.
