Live Ledge #192: Trio In a Row

For the third straight week, this episode consists of nothing but three-song segments of classic albums. Aided by ideas submitted by friends and acquaintances on Facebook and Twitter, this is one of those rare examples of a sequel equaling or exceeding the previous versions. Thanks so much to everybody that helped out, and look for similar shows later this year.

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 #189: New Releases

Another new month means another episode of new releases. Besides brand new music by the reunited Juliana Hatfield Three, host Scott Hudson shares some brand new faves that include Coleen Green, Pow Wows, and The Living Eyes.
Also included in the show are selections from a couple of great box sets. Bouquets From a Cloudy Sky collects the entire 50 year output of legendary rockers The Pretty Things. Along with plenty of bonus tracks, the packaging includes some great extras, including a 10", two DVD's, and a hardcover book that tells the story of one of the most underrated bands ever.
There's also a set featuring tracks from the second box set of classic 1920's blues from Paramount Records. The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records, Volume Two is an exhaustive set that attempts to include everything released by the label between 1928 and 1932.
