It’s Strange To See An Album Release 41 Years After It Was Recorded…

It’s Filled With 70’s Rock and Roll Goodness!!

A Rare Look Into An Interesting Period…
Recorded December 5, 1978 in Austin, Texas…this interesting musical segment originally aired on Austin City Limits.

However, at the very top of this list should be a group that seldom people have heard. Continue reading
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have always been a poetic freak show, but their appearance on BBC Four Sessions in 2008 brought the circus into viewers homes. With the backdrop of a CBGB decorated church supplying an intimate atmosphere, Cave was completely in his element. Continue reading
