Issue 169

Written by Frank Doris

Through good times and bad, we always have the memories. Until we forget them. I hope I haven’t used that one before.

In this issue: Ray Chelstowski interviews the spellbinding guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. Tom Methans goes through Amoeba Music’s What’s in My Bag? YouTube series. B. Jan Montana’s epic journey forges ahead. Rudy Radelic drives on another Lemons auto rally. Jay Jay French reviews a recent Dead & Company concert at Citi Field. Ken Kessler reviews Richard Colburn’s new book, Adventures in Hi-Fi. John Seetoo looks at music stars who have embraced supporting roles. Rich Isaacs meets Brazilian musical superstar Sergio Mendes. Jeff Weiner revisits the Museum of Musical History.

I continue my Confessions of a Setup Man series with some thoughts on avoiding audio burnout. Harris Fogel reports on T.H.E. Show 2022. J.I. Agnew contemplates cutting lathes and cameras. Andrew Daly talks with folk/Americana artist Lilli Lewis. The Mindful Melophile Don Kaplan listens to all that jazz. Russ Welton tells of thieves, golden boys and trust in the retail sector. Guest contributor Sameer Verma sneaks away from a wedding to visit the legendary jazz recording mecca Van Gelder Studio. Anne E. Johnson covers the career of jazz trumpeter Roy Eldridge, and…oh no, it’s Devo! The Copper A/V squad caps the issue with blues and greens, a tale of the tape, musical divergence, and a Kloss encounter.
