Seasick Steve – You Can’t Teach an old dog new tricks

I have just listened to the new Seasick Steve Album “You Can’t Teach an old Dog New Tricks” and I think it is absolutely awesome. Here is the Track listing:

    • Treasures – quiet thoughtful and reflective
    • You Can’t Teach an old dog new Tricks – rocking track
    • Burning Up – starts bluesy and gets progressively noisier
    • Don’t Know Why She Love me but she do – lively rocking track
    • Have Mercy on the lonely – is lively blues
    • whiskey ballad – lively ballad about the medicinal effect of whikskey
    • Back in the Doghouse – This is anotherlively rocking track
    • Underneath a Blue & Cloudy Sky – lively rhythm & blues track
    • What a way to go  – lively blues
    • party – lively  rhythm and blues rack
    • Days gone – This is another lively rhythm and blues track
    • It’s a long long way – is a bluesy ballad that makes you want to listen to the album again

Happy Birthday Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher, who used to be in Oasis, celebrates his 43rd Birthday today, when I found out earlier on, I thought it would be the perfect excuse to listen to all of my Oasis albums. I think I prefer the earlier albums, However I think that all Oasis songs are better than the majority of  modern tunes and really illustrate how rubbish some of the modern stuff  really is.

Seasick Steve – You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

Ever since I heard him play at Glastonbury I have been a big fan of blues singer Seasick Steve, and I thought that his album “I Came Here with Nothiing & I’ve still got Most of it Left” was brilliant.

So when I  found out that  is releasing a new album , entitled “You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks” on May 30th, I immediately put it on my “To get” list. So far I have only heard the Track “Treasures” but from what I’ve heard it also sounds brilliant.

Here is the Track Listing

  • Treasures
  • You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks
  • Burning up
  • Idon’t know Why she Love me But She Do
  • Have Mercy on the Lonely
  • Whiskey Ballad
  • Back in the Doghouse
  • Underneath a Blue & Cloudless Sky
  • What a Way to Go
  • Party
  • Days Gone
  • It’s a Long Long Way

Happy Birthday Stevie Nicks

Stevie Nicks from legendary rock band Fleetwood Mac, also celebrates her birthday today, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to post some classic Fleetwood Mac tracks, However there are so many brilliant songs I had a really difficult job choosing which ones to post, and I could spend months relistening to all the albums again – repeatedly.
