Live Ledge #191: More Three In a Row

Last night, a record store saved my online life. Yes, I was a victim of identity theft, and it was thanks to a declined purchase at my friend's store that I discovered the issue. The situation became more scary when I discover who ripped me off. You'll have to listen to tonight's show to hear the whole story.
Otherwise, it's a continuation of last week's show. We all have albums that feature three classic songs in a row. Tonight is the second part of a planned three shows consisting of nothing but those types of albums. With many thanks to my Facebook and twitter friends, especially Jim Connolly, I have more than enough possibilities to fill three shows.

Live Ledge #190: Three In a Row

One of the music lists that I'm on recently had an intriguing thread. The subject was for everybody to pick out albums that placed three classic songs in a row. Now that sounds like a great idea! I took it to Facebook and Twitter, and tonight is part one of at least two (but probably three) episodes featuring records that fit this idea. Much thanks must go to friends such as Phil Bjorneberg, Michael Gibbons, Dee DiMemmo, Gorman Bechard, David Butler, and many others for their suggestions. If you've got other possibilities, leave them here as suggestions or head to the Scott D. Hudson page on Facebook.

Live Ledge #188: Back From the Grave

To say I was thrilled when I heard that 2015 would see new Back From the Grave releases would be stating the obvious. I've long been a fan of the influential Crypt Records series, and was excited to discover what rare '60's garage rock tracks had been unearthed since the last volume was released in 1996.
The new editions, volumes 9 and 10, live up to the standards of the previous releases. One could even argue they are superior to the others, as technology has obviously come a long way since the original eight versions were put out. Given that these tracks are mastered from surviving 45 copies, having the ability to clean up the muck and scratches is a godsend.
Tonight's episode presents a set for each specific volume, and it's two hours of pure energy. If you're a fan of noisy rock and roll from any era, you should check out not only this show but each of these records. Long out of print, the first eight are in the process of being reissued to go with the two new releases.
