Daniel Alvarez - On The Path To Awakening

Daniel is a great guitarist (he taught the author of this blog how to play guitar) and this is his first CD. His music could be considered sort of a cross between rock and jazz and I can say that his music would be enjoyed by anyone who likes either of these two genres. Daniel is a great guy and an even better musician so I really highly recommend anyone to check out his music. And if you enjoy his music that I am posting here support him and buy his CD at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/danielalvarez

The Jam - Live at Rockplast 1980

The Jam is one of the most famous bands in Britain to come out of the 1970's-80's punk and new wave era. While The Jam were tremendously popular in Britain they had very limited success in other places such as the United States. This being a real shame since The Jam composed some great tracks combining the sounds from 60's bands like The Beatles and The Who with the newer punk and new wave style. The album that I am uploading is a live album and features some of the best tracks done by The Jam.
Really recommend you check this out if you like any of the punk or new wave music of the 70's-80's or also any of the British rock from the 1960's.

Jackie Mittoo - Last Train to Skaville

Jackie Mittoo one of the most influential and one of the greatest musician to come out of the Jamaican music scene of the 1960's. His instrumental songs would lay the foundation for much of the work that later artists would produce. This album Last Train To Skaville has some great tunes including a Jamaican take on the James Bond theme song and the epic Ska-Culation. If you like reggae, ska, jazz, or just plain good music than this is definitely an album you want to check out.
