Remastering the tracks, cleaning them up.  PM with more details.  So I guess I'm on the right track and will proceed with the rest of the album.  I'll put em up as I get them done from time to time.

These are two more of my favorite albums. (Aren't they all? No. I wouldn't get too excited about "Hermit of Mink Hollow" for example.)

I saw Todd doing A Wizard A True Star last fall at the Strathmore (state of the art venue), but, for some reason, the sound was all off.  First time I had ever been there.

I had the immense pleasure of attending Todd's Johnson Tour concert last night at the Birchmere, in Alexandria, Virginia.

See this show if you get the chance.

I have not seen Todd play guitar like that in a long, long time. It was a bit sloppy at times, but the man can still swing that ax with dexterity and vigor, coaxing out of a bevy of guitars some inspired and soaring solos. He never received the due he could have obtained as a guitar player had he not chosen to become the studio and tour magician intent upon pursuing the eclectic, song by song. There were flashes of that guitar talent on display last night before a music hall that, inexplicably, was not even 3/4 full. (Upon taking the stage, he bellowed "Welcome Sons of the Confederacy," a mischievous remark about Virginia's governor who recently put out a statement regarding the history of Confederacy and Virginia without even mentioning slavery. His quirky humor also was on display all night; easy banter)

As the name of the tour implies, it is a blues show. About 12 songs from the great blues man Robert Johnson interspersed with Todd songs that Todd referred to as his more "bluesy" songs. Among Todd songs played: Black Maria, No. 1 Lowest Common Denominator, Hamburger Hell, Tiny Demons, and I Saw The Light. Covers of RJ included Dust My Broom, Walkin' Blues, and, as the final encore, Crossroads.

His voice cannot really come close to matching the soul-piercing work of the plaintive and evocative Johnson, but it was interesting to see Todd's take on these songs even as they fell short of that high mark. Todd's adventuresome nature in terms of music has always been a hallmark.

It was his soaring guitar, though, that sent this night into the stratosphere for me.

He can still do it. Electrifying.


Hey! You're alive!

Contagious, amazing energy for an incredibly ambitious show (I didn't get how ambitious until now).  The costume changes reflected in the book are astounding.  What a great way to start the day.  I enjoyed this very much!
