The entire album was recorded at the Blue Front Café, the oldest juke joint in Mississippi. The record purposefully allows its cinderblock acoustics to be Jimmy’s accompaniment compelling the listener to close their eyes and experience pulling up a chair in the old juke joint and listening to him play. Those same walls have absorbed the haunting music of Skip James, Jack Owens, Henry Stuckey, Bud Spires, Cornelius Bright, Tommy West and others over the years and provided the perfect feedback to Jimmy’s stark and dissonant blues.

The long established musical relationship between guitarists Dave Specter and Steve Freund goes back nearly 20 years, when Specter sought out Freund as a guitar teacher. They have shared many stages, but this marks the first occasion that they have recorded together. In the best of the Chicago blues tradition as illustrated by the legendary Delmark label, Is What It Is is a loose, swinging, tough blues date filled with great tunes, inspired playing and loose-groove vibes. While Specter has become well-known for his jazzy blues playing, his former teacher Freund has stayed close to the roots of the Chicago sound. That contrast works beautifully here on both covers and originals. Freund's tunes are some of the bets on the set as evidenced by the opener "My Little Playhouse." One of the reasons for this is his deep, clear soulful singing which adds punch and nuance to the dueling guitars Specter brings classy elegance to the set in his instrumentals.

The Alf Bicknell Tapes gathers various Beatles tapes that had been discussed over the years and in fact had been released before in a number of ways. Bicknell was The Beatles' personal limo driver between 1964-1966, so he was able to witness the stardom and adventures John, Paul, George, and Richie had at the height of worldwide Beatlemania. In the 1980's, it was revealed he had some rare Beatles recordings and put them up for action. He had hoped to gain a good amount of money but ended up not getting as much as expected. Some of these tapes are personal demos, some of these are partial demo sessions, a few are of unknown origin but they have become a part of The Beatles' recorded legacy. The quality of each is mixed but as the saying goes, "it is what it is". This is done by the Remasters Workshop in 2010.

Astronomers have long tried to understand our place as tiny specs in the vastness of the universe. But there is another expanse of the universe to explore, a bizarre realm in which we are giants, the wired world of the very small. This is a journey into the heart of matter, a journey down the biggest rabbit hole in history… a journey smaller than you can see, smaller than an atom, where nothing is what it seems… into a wonderland which seems far removed from reality… down to the very smallest structure of the universe. The journey to find the smallest thing may take us into another universe altogether. And the bottom of the rabbit hole, we may find that our universe is just one of many.

For what it is, this is the best there is. What it is is two discs of encores recorded in the mid-'40s for American Decca by Jascha Heifetz, the man some would say was the greatest violin virtuoso of the twentieth century. Every performance, every phrase, heck, every note is absolutely stunning, full of the kind of flash and brilliance and artistry you just don't hear anymore. This may sound like an absurd exaggeration, but just try any track at random – they're all consistently amazing. Try the extravagant technique of Benjamin's Jamaican Rumba or the hilarious wit of Rossini's Figaro or the sentimental warmth of Berlin's White Christmas or the ingratiating nostalgia of Foster's Old Folks at Home or the deep blues of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess or the insouciant swing of Weill's Mack the Knife or exquisite sensuality of Chopin's Nocturne.

This collection of songs is wonderful. It is a two disk set and a great value (being both an import and a 39 song collection). The sound quality is great, and they sound like they all came form the original masters (no scratchy noises or bad transfers).
The collection does not contain any of his wonderful trio work, but the arrangements are really top notch and not the least bit cheesey. Even with very little improvisation, both disks are a wonderful listen due to the emotional performances and wonderful orchestrations. And Nat's singing is breathtaking. Above all, these are simply well written songs. Some of my favorite cuts include "Smile," "Pretend" and "Les Feuilles Mortes." For an introduction into the non-trio works of Nat "King" Cole or simply a wonderful collection of music, this two CD set is a must have.

After years of the oil company fracking, an earthquake ensues in New Orleans, unleashing giant subterranean, fire breathing, carnivorous spiders with an appetite for human eyeballs. 30 year old slacker tour bus driver, Paul, must lead his group to safety into the swamps of Louisiana when the bus (and town) is over run by the deadly arachnids. It is here it is discovered they can run across water as well, and the hive with the queen, as well.
