This is the debut of the amazing Suburban Party Line jingle! All hail Randall Brown and Jodi Manross. Here is her Facebook page. We really hope doing this jingle doesn’t damage her career 🙂 And here she is, playing a show in NYC:

From the Source of All Human Knowledge, more info on the strange saga of “Band of Gold.”

Here’s a small excerpt from an article written by Peter Wendel on Duane Allman’s involvement with the Layla album. Wendel discusses “Little Wing,” saying  “Eric and Duane cut this cover of the Hendrix classic just days before Jimi’s tragic death on September 18, 1970. The track was added to the album as a tribute to Clapton’s fallen friend and fellow musician. Duane plays lead on this amped-up take on the original, unleashing a triumphant, gale-force solo at 1:57 (without his slide) that Hendrix would’ve appreciated. Reportedly, Allman played a Les Paul Goldtop for this track, and you can really hear it since he’s mixed louder than Clapton. Butterflies and zebras, fairy tales…”

79% fresh? Kinda surprising.
