On February 10, 1998, Blodwyn Pig released their next LIVE album and what a good one it was: “Live at the Lafayette.”  Joining the fiery guitarist were the legendary Jack Lancaster (horns, woodwinds, violins, and flutes), Andy Pyle (bass), and Clive Bunker (drums).  There are nine great tunes on this CD culled from a superb concert, an album we encourage everyone to buy as Mr. Abrams is one of the all-time great guitarists.  He should be on the list of all-time greats such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Kim Simmonds, and Alvin Lee.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the absolute best in music and will then add it to your ever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved albums.  Enjoy.

Author: Chef Brian Carrick, ACF Retired

My colleagues and I no longer share old photos of us, as the price of success means that lunatics and nuts come looking for one. Therefore, we hired local up-and-coming Bakersfield-Oildale, California street artist, Simone, to create facsimiles of us so we can remain somewhat obscure. Ah, well, I began my culinary career in 1969 bussing tables at age 12 and became a cook's apprentice in 1973 at age 17. I have worked all over California, Hawaii, Washington State, and even a brief time in Arizona. Chef Brian Carrick writes from Weedpatch, California. Chef Brian Carrick is a Conservative Republican.
