Volume 1: No Rules Volume 2: Field Trip Californian melodic hard rockers KIK TRACEE are releasing “Big Western Sky”, their first album in more than 25 years in the shape of a B-sides, demos and rarities, available on 2 CD / 4 LP. The Vol.1 is oddly titled "No Rules" as the band's '91 album, but it's full of unreleased material. These are pre-production recording for their second full length that never was, early demos, a couple of live recordings, etc. Kik Tracee vocalist singer Stephen Shareaux said of the release: “After all these years. Why a Kik Tracee release now? The timing just felt right. We've been sitting on these songs for what, 25 years now? Kinda pulled them out recently, and listened to the stuff, and thought. You know. Let's package this stuff and put it out there for the diehard fans to relive the glory days, if you will, or just get their Kik Tracee on, man”. The sound quality is very good, most of them pre-production stuff which at the time were done professionally and would be today's envy for many bands. This Vol. 1 features the songs that never made into Kik Tracee debut, plus some from the unreleased 2nd full length album. Hard Rockin¡, catchy stuff with an early '90s feel. Highly Recommended 01.

These are pre-production recording for their second full length that never was, early demos, a couple of live recordings, etc. The sound quality is very good, most of them pre-production stuff which at the time were done professionally and would be today's envy for many bands. This Vol. 2 also includes two cool acoustic performances captured live in a radio performance. Highly Recommended 01. Field Trip (Demo) 02. Outta My Bed (Demo) 03. Shine (Demo) 04.

Anyone here ever see this show before? It's an monthly show on the internet where Daryl Hall gets together with his "house band" and a guest artist or band and they jam on some of the artist's tunes, some of Daryl's music, and just generally talk about music, life, etc. Plus, they do a little cooking episode and eat at the end. Pretty cool deal. If you go to the main page, you'll see how/why I found about it a few weeks ago, but there's an interesting back catalog of shows through which I will be searching in another week or so. http://www.livefromdarylshouse.com/ Some artists who may interest folks who don't stray too far from music of "our" type: John Rzeznik Todd Rundgren Krieger/Manzarek Finger Eleven
I couldn't make it to the June 2nd show but when they added the 9th, my wife decided to buy me tickets for my birthday. :-) They sounded good but I was cognizant of backing tracks. The "drum solo" by Alex Van Halen was pretty surreal--more backing audio and video tricks than him doing his thing, but they're in their late 50s so it's kind of a remarkable he's beating out songs like Chinatown and Hot for Teacher still. His brother Eddie sounded much better last night than he did the first time I saw him back to DLR In Los Angeles or even the time before in San Jose in 2004 with Sammy Hagar. He has hit timing, Hot for Teacher wasn't a hot, sloppy mess like it was when I saw him try to play it with DLR in '08... Wolfgang also sounded pretty good, especially on backing vocals. In fact, him and his dad were doing MOST of the singing. David Lee Roth was just screaming and talking most of the time, and the while looping the same corny 23 Skidoo dance routine. It was good to see the jumps and high kicks have yet to be retired, even at their age. They played all the hits, but also included some highly pleasurable deep cuts like "Women in Love" so "true" Van Halen fans could feel special that the band shows they still care about them. The new tracks are actually really good though, too. "Chinatown" is killer, "The Trouble with Never" is very melodic and has a great classic VH sound but I personally wished they had have played "Big River" instead of "Tattoo." Much, much better song. The crowd was largely what I expected. Life long 95.5 KLOS listeners; the motorcycle jacket 'n bandanna, tattooed goatee wearing Anglo Saxons that normally show up for a Van Halen or Motley Crue gig. There were several younger people there, too (including kids; theirs, I'm assuming). It's great to new a whole new generation of rock fans are going to learn about and appreciate great electric guitar players like Eddie. There were a few killjoys, though. Some arrests, even a couple of ambulances showed up outside. A grand ole time was had by all. ;-) For the first concert I've had the pleasure of attending in far, far too long (probably four years at least), I sure am glad this was it. The crammed quarters where my wife and I sat notwithstanding, I had a crazy good time. It's just so good to listen to Eddie play live while he's still doing it.
