Hi everyone, Bryan here….

If there ever was a guitar player besides Jimi Hendrix that should get his own documentary, it should be Eric Clapton. This guy not only produced and created some of the best mix of blues and rock songs, but he did enough cocaine, heroine, and alcohol that would have killed everyone in Bangkok overnight. And those people know how to party with the lady-boys. The documentary is called ‘Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars‘ and will be directed by Lili Fini Zanuck, which sounds like a fake name.

Classic Waxxx: Eric Clapton “Eric Clapton”

by NapkinArt on Aug 9th, 2011

Times are really tough for a lot of folks in the world, right now. I mean, where does one even begin to break up the black clouds circling overhead? How much more bad news can we, as a people, take in one sitting? I honestly don’t want to know the answer to that question, but it is times like these that I can take refuge in my record collection, especially when my collection has this gem of an album by Eric Patrick Clapton.

I’m sure by now most music fans are familiar with the guitar genius of Eric Clapton, via his unsurpassed talents with bands The Yardbirds, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and Cream. However, “Slowhand” has been recording critically and commercially successful album as a solo artist for nearly four decades, and his first self-titled LP proved (and still proves) that Clapton is indeed, God.

Classic Waxxx: Wilson Pickett “Hey Jude”

by NapkinArt on Oct 25th, 2011

Despite being a hardcore ‘Beatles’ enthusiast, and perhaps a bit of a purist, too, I’m always morbidly curious to hear a Beatles cover from time to time. Some are good, some are bad, and some are just downright awful. Surprisingly, Wilson Pickett’s version of “Hey Jude” has some teeth to it, a version I certainly don’t mind owning in my record collection. Read the rest of this entry »

Classic Waxxx: Ringo Starr “Old Wave”

by NapkinArt on Jul 19th, 2011

Let’s face it. Everyone loves Ringo, the fun-lovin’ drummer from the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band, The Beatles. Admit it. You’ve got all the records with Ringo’s head circled in red like some crazed lunatic, hoping to snip a little piece of hair from his mop top if he ever crossed your path (hey, it’s happened to him before!) But, did you know Ringo made some incredible solo albums on his own?

“Old Wave”, Ringo Starr’s ninth studio album to be exact, is one of the most over-looked and underrated albums of his career. Starr enjoyed much commercial success with his post-Beatles  albums, such as the self-titled “Ringo” and follow-up “Goodnight Vienna”, featuring a who’s who of rock royalty pitching in on playing and recording. However, by the time Starr recorded “Old Wave”, the scene and atmosphere of Starr’s personal life was a different story. Read the rest of this entry »

Napkinart here…for those who don’t know I write about vintage vinyl on my other blog “Classic Waxxx” for the kiddos who are new to the whole ‘vinyl thing’ and need some guidance. We (the editorial ‘we’) got a chance to get our hands on some awesome exclusive Record Store Day swag this year, which you can read about here. From Eric Clapton to The Rolling Stones, The Velvet Underground to The Doors, there were some great releases to be had and some great releases you’d kill your grandmother for.

Since the birth of recorded music there are very few albums in the world worthy of being purchased at least five times in your life with the advent of a new format. Fortunately, like a finely aged double-malt whiskey, Derek & The Dominos’ “Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs” is one of those albums, and this year it is celebrating its 40th Anniversary with a slew of deluxe multi-format packages, prodding die hard Eric Clapton and rock n’ roll fans to buy it just maybe one more time.
