Elvis – ’68 Comeback Special Edition / 2006 RCA / 94 Minutes / http://www.elvis.com / http://www.rca.com /

Not being born until fifteen years after this television special was aired, it becomes kind of hard for me to gauge the impact that “’68 Comeback” had on the fans of Elvis, and more importantly, all individuals that were able to watch it during its original airing. There are quite a few extras that individuals can view on this DVD. For those fans that need everything to be the same as it was back in 1968, the original version of the DVD is free to watch.

Lacquer – Rebuilt

Lacquer – Rebuilt / 2007 Self / http://www.lacquerbadlands.com /

“Ripper” is a track that will bring listeners back to the Motley Crue-like rock of the eighties. Lacquer is a little more complex than that comparison would seem, as there are hints of Ramones-like pop punk and even a little bit of a Replacements/Husker Du sound during this track. The musical progression during “Ripper” is something that individuals will feel comfortable with, and this only bolsters the replay value of this disc. “Kicksville” continues this classic rock sound, but brings Lacquer new influences. During this track, hints of Dokken and 38 Special are present. Continue reading “Lacquer – Rebuilt”

Deepak Chopra – A Gift of Love II

Deepak Chopra – A Gift of Love II / 2002 Rasa / 23 Tracks / http://www.rasamusic.com /

Besides the music of The Buddhist Monks that I received a few months ago, Deepak Chopra’s “A Gift of Love” has to rank right up there in terms of the weirdness scale. This is the style of music that would be played at a number of import houses and other new-age shops, so turn away from this review if this is not something that you would like. Note here that the music present on this disc is not done by Chopra, but rather is done by Adam Plack. Continue reading “Deepak Chopra – A Gift of Love II”
