Does anyone else get as excited as I do about making music playlists?  I thoroughly enjoy the process of picking out tunes that I would want to hear for specific occasions, and I’m pretty good at it, if I do say so myself.  I always have several going for different uses – a Dinner Mix, [Continue]

Today's Musings: A Peek at The Wailers

Last night at Antone’s, The Wailers proved why (despite the fact that the band contains only one actual original Wailer – Aston “Family Man” Barrett) they remain enormously popular around the country by delivering up two full hours of excellent covers hitting the most popular Bob Marley and the Wailers tracks.  Getting to [Continue]

Putumayo Presents: World Reggae – 2004 I referenced this album when I wrote my review of Amadou & Mariam and I thought that it was time to give it its own proper review this week.  World Reggae is a compilation album, but it’s not your average compilation of sub-par songs that weren’t really good enough [Continue]

Rastaman Vibration – 1976 Okay, so I lied.  I said there probably wouldn’t be many Bob reviews on my blog, but here’s one already.  Well, what would you listen to on a very hot summer day in Austin, Texas?  So, let’s just jump right in.
