Hopefully you will see something from me soon after. Till then check back through the archives. Please have a great few weeks and wish me well too.

Weekly MP3 share Another share of one of my MP3s. I set up a new one once a week and give you seven days to check it out. After that it will be gone and replaced by a new selection. Please don't link to this. Just click on the link and save it. For this week:

Mp3 Share Eric Clapton

"It's Easy"

Eric Clapton was at the Air Canada Centre Sunday night performing along with Jeff Beck. To honour this I'm sharing a track from Eric and J.J. Cale's 2006 album "The Road to Escondito". One of Eric's earliest hit songs, "After Midnight", was written by J.J. Cale. This man has been very reclusive. While writing many songs made famous by others, and 11 of the 14 on this album, he is not well known. Clapton talked him into doing this album and taking a more prominent role. Guess he did the same with Jeff yesterday. It was worth the effort.

Mp3 ShareLighthouse "Sunny Days" or you can try here too!
LIGHTHOUSE had a special Toronto concert performance by on February 13 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre celebrating the band's 40th anniversary.
Lighthouse burst on the scene in 1969 with a unique blend of rock, jazz and classical influences that defied all conventions. They took Canada by storm, receiving three successive Group of the Year Junos and an Outstanding Male Performance Juno for Bob McBride. Fans responded by buying nine gold and platinum albums with international hits such as "One Fine Morning", "Sunny Days", "Hats Off to the Stranger", "1849" and "Pretty Lady". Always innovative, Lighthouse collaborated and toured across the country with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company; wrote and performed the score for Prometheus Bound with Shakespearean actress Irene Worth; were the first rock band to headline the Newport, Monterey, and Boston Globe Jazz Festivals and the first to perform with a symphony orchestra. Lighthouse was the only act other than Jimi Hendrix asked to perform a second night among groups that included The Who, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, The Doors and Chicago. Since reuniting in 1992 Lighthouse have not strayed from their roots emphasizing virtuoso solos, tight ensemble playing, soaring vocal harmonies and a heady mix of good old rock 'n' roll. 2009 marked the band's fortieth anniversary and they celebrated with a double DVD/CD album released in October by ole/Universal Music. Forty Years of Sunny Days includes a remastered CD of classic hits paired with a new live concert DVD recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound. Lighthouse is enjoying a renaissance of its music lately, with artists such as Akon and Santana recently releasing covers of Lighthouse songs as well as artists in Asia. This version of Lighthouse has been together for seventeen years and features an all-star lineup with founding musicians Skip Prokop (drums), Paul Hoffert (keys), and Ralph Cole (guitar) along with Russ Little (trombone), Steve Kennedy (sax), Chris Howells (trumpet), and Simon Wallis (sax). Doug Moore (bass) and Don Paulton (keys) round out the ensemble. A Canadian institution, Lighthouse is still generating the same musical magic that audiences can't resist. Check out their wiki.
