Space Oddity, 21st Century-Style


This has been around for a couple years, but for those of you who haven't watched it before, it's totally worth it!  Why listen to Bowie when you can listen to the REAL THING?!

My Absence...

My posts here have come to a crawl as of late, so for the six people that drop by on the regular, I'm sorry for that. I realized that I have about half-a-dozen blogs/tumblrs and I wish there was an easy way to combine them all into a single site. I mean, after all, they pretty much cover the same ground: Lou Reed, Johnny Thunders, New York Dolls, bootlegs, music, and cool stuff on the Interwebs! Any of you know of a site where it's easy to blend a bunch of blogs into a single website?!

Not being able to break with my usual interests, here is the latest Easy Action project I helped out with:

 
It's the remastered 2CD In Cold Blood, which puts together all of Johnny's recording sessions with Jimmy Miller, plus some other one-off sessions, all from 1982. This material has never been issued together in a single release, and is essentially all of Johnny's studio recordings from 1982.

Nina Antonia provides detailed liner notes, which include photos you've never seen. Also, it all comes in a classy thick-stock gatefold with individual sleeves for the CDs.

But Wait, There's More! 

Disc two is a never-before released audience recording of his 3 June 1982 gig at the Marquee Club in London, straight from the master tape.

This is also available on vinyl, but without the live recording.  As with all Easy Action releases, this is NOT a bootleg. It is an official release with all royalties going to the JT estate.

Slow Day At Work (2006)


Here is another piece of "busy work" I created while it was slow at work.  I had just started my job, and I and other newly hired colleagues would battle for workload!  On the days when I lost a battle, I found other ways to spend my time constructively.  Here, I charted the creation of the Israel Defense Forces.

Linda Ronstadt: 10


This is from the inner sleeve of Linda Ronstadt's 1973 Don't Cry Now LP.  I can't get enough of 1970s Ronstadt...I could stare at her forever...
