All Together Now: The Beatles Are (Back) In Mono

The Beatles with George Martin in January 1967 at Abbey Road Studios in London.

By now, three-fourths of the way through The Beatles' sort-of-official 50th anniversary year, Fab Four fatigue is understandable.

Coralee and the Townies Album Release! Finally! It's called Criminal Pride!

Coralee and the Townies are a Lexington, Kentucky based band of a genre they’ve self-defined as HONKY TONK SOUL. And it’s a fitting description, as the sextet whoops and weeps with traditional authenticity and contemporary energy, with Coralee’s husky vocals front and center and the Townies providing a righteous, raucous rootenanny soundtrack around her.
