We got both kinds. We got Country and Western.

We got both kinds. We got Country and Western.

\It seems that the older I get the longer it takes to explain what kind of music I like. I blame this on the marketing boys and their endless need to come up with new names for the same old thing. Like when I first got interested in Punk, you would find all the punk records in the "Punk" section. Over time this changed in the order of New Wave, Hardcore, College, Indy or Import and then Alternative. Now in these bends there would be a mixture of just about everything that wouldn't fit elsewhere.

 

DaVo's Halloween Spotify Playlist

DaVo's Halloween Spotify Playlist

I know this weeks Spotify blog is a little late. I have been trying to focus on the Underground Archives site and bookwork while not getting too burn out. I have transferred about 100 bands so far from the old archives and still have around 600 to go. It's going to take awhile. Also I've rediscovered fishing thanks to Lanny and Quinn but I'll write more on that at a different time.

 

DaVo's 20 Rockabilly Songs

DaVo's 20 Rockabilly Songs

I guess you could say that I've been listening to Rockabilly for over 42 years now. It was the music that seems to keep creeping up in my life some how. It could be that in a way punk was a throw back to that ordinal Rock and Roll Rebellion of the late 1950s.  Also coming of age in the 1980s didn't help. It was a period in time that America seemed to long for an imagined returned to the 1950s. It seemed that from the release of American Graffiti in 1973 on everyone suddenly had a much different belief of what life was really like in the 50s and Happy Days didn't help.

 

DaVo's 20 Great Jazz songs

DaVo's 20 Great Jazz songs

Jazz was the first soul American art form. It can simple and sweet or it can be raw and powerful. Jazz's ability to effect my emotions and often convey an emotion without lyrics has always drawn me to it. My exposure to Jazz started early in my life with my parents love of swing and my father's interest in BeBop. I grew up on a diet of Jazz, Jump bands, Rock-a-Billy country, folk with a sprinkle here and there of AM radio pop and rock or the torture of my sisters Columbia record club collection. Also in the 70s there was a bit of a retro movement that revolved around the 40s and 50s.

20 Bands that I Discovered through Promoting Shows

20 Bands that I Discovered through Promoting Shows

Some of you may know that I promoted shows and was a talent buyer off and on from 1996 to 2006. One of the main advantages of promoting especially in the early days was the amount of swag that you got in the mail. This was both a blessing and a curse. At it's height, I was averaging 3 to 5 CDs a day and out of those maybe there would be 3 or 4 a week worth a second listening. The rarest of the flood of CDs were CDs from bands that I had never heard of and made me a life time fan after just one listening. This weeks Spotify Playlist Blog is some of those bands.
