New Elvis album teams king with royal orchestra
Yahoo News - over 2 years
Priscilla Presley closes her eyes and bites her lip as she listens to a new album of Elvis songs, with the king of rock and roll's voice backed by Britain's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. "I am emotional because I watched him singing each one of these songs," his ex-wife told AFP at London's Abbey Road Studios, where the album was recorded and where The Beatles made most of their hits. Due out on October 30, the album, entitled "If I Can Dream", gives Presley's songs the sort of huge backing he always wanted in studio recordings but only got during his 1970s Las Vegas concerts, Priscilla said.

Fuller House or Failure House: A Tanner Family Future
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
We have been living in the post TGIF world for some time now. This is a world where we know that Bob Saget has the mouth, and likely the venereal diseases of a truck stop hooker, Urkel is sexually appealing without having to turn himself into Stefan, and a human woman was willing to divorce John Stamos and marry the fat kid from The Goonies. Let's face it -- should you find yourself in a situation where, when you're lost out there and you're all alone, a light is waiting to carry you home, then you know you are either dying or somebody slipped some LSD into your cocktail. I think we can all agree that while nostalgia has its place, the age of innocence is over. If the producers are going to sell the original audience on the Full House reboot, they are going to have to get adult about this thing. I, for one, would like to see the second coming of the Tanner family prove worthy of being added to our Netflix cues. As such, I've taken the liberty of jotting down a few episode ideas...

Of Phil Spector, Marshmallows and Ebb Tides
Huffington Post - about 4 years
During the early 1960s, my father, songwriter Carl Sigman, and many of his "Great American Songbook" contemporaries watched in horror as airwaves and record stores were overrun by alien creatures making noises that, to their ears, did not qualify as "music." Carl came from a tradition in which songwriters wrote songs and singers sang them. As the shift away from that model accelerated -- with the advent of the Beatles and other artists who wrote their own songs -- fewer and fewer of Carl's new tunes made the kind of (chart) noise he would have liked. Phil Spector helped change that. Spector's 1963 Christmas Album (nee A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector), which marked its semi-centennial anniversary last week, gave Carl an appreciation of the potential of rock & roll to take his old-school paeans to love (requited or, more often, not) to strange and beautiful places he had never imagined. Writing in the examiner, ace music writer/Rock 'n' Roll Pantheon czar Jim Bessm...
