ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Famed guitarist Michael Schenker decided that he would record an album of songs that influenced him early on in his career and brought together a variety of musicians to help him knock out 13 amazing tunes.  “By Invitation Only” came out on June 25, 2011 and featured not only the blazing guitarist but a who’s who of rockers such as bassists Tony Franklin (The Firm), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Dio, Foreigner), among others as well as drummers such as Mike Baird (Journey), Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), Aynsley Dunbar (Journey, Jefferson Starship), among others.  Most of the tunes are recorded as power trios with the exception of one in which, a saxophone solo was essential.  Say what you will but it appears that Mr. Schenker NEVER sleeps (must be some good stuff).  Seek him out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  64. 2020 Friday I: Folks, we encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party- along with the Canucks, the Iranians, and the Russians are up to today.  You know they’re up to no good, sons-of-bi****s.  Here’s a good one: Chi-Com state-run media blasts the U.S. in general and the Trump administration in particular for criticizing its ‘stellar record on human rights.’  Chi-Coms, you are akin to the Nazis.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The follow up to “Bloodshot,” “Ladies Invited,” came out on November 09, 1973.  Once again, the band cranked out a fine set of bluesy-rock-and-roll tunes.  The lineup remained the same- John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones)- and as always, everyone was on fire.  The cover art is said to resemble actress Faye Dunaway (look her up Gen X, Y, and Z) who was romantically involved with Peter Wolf and who would exchange vows with him a year later.  We love this album, particularly the powerful tune, “Chimes.”  You won’t be disappointed in this album which is why we encourage everyone to pick it up at your favorite site for nothing but the best in rock music.

  53. 2013: China reports it will open the South China Sea’s Paracel Islands to tourism before the May Day holiday. Vietnam voices strong opposition this move, as ownership of the islands is in dispute.  Elsewhere, in Doha, Qatar, hundreds of delegates meet as Qatar pledges $500 million in aid to rebuild Sudan’s Darfur, a region racked by a decade-long conflict.
  54. 2014: The president of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, makes the first state visit to England as the Irish head of state; his visit matched the one Queen Elizabeth II made to his country in 2011. Elsewhere, pro-Russian activists barricaded inside government buildings in eastern Ukraine proclaimed their regions to be independent and called for a referendum on seceding from Ukraine, an echo of events that had led to Russia’s annexation of the Crimea.
  55. 2017: California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown—a Democrat—announced an end to the state’s historic drought emergency imposed in 2014. Meanwhile, as Chinese communist dictator Xi Jinping enjoys dinner with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-a-Lago, the president orders a missile strike against the forces of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad following a chemical weapons attack against civilians comes to light.  Finally, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts the Electric Light Orchestra[v], YES[vi], Joan Baez[vii], Journey[viii], Pearl Jam[ix], and slain rapper Tupac Shakur[x] on this date.
  56. 2018: In the NHL, expansion team the Las Vegas Knights close the NHL regular season with a 7-1 loss in Calgary; however, the new team first-year record ends with 51 wins which is far better than the last two expansion teams- the Anaheim Ducks and the Florida Panthers who both ended their inaugural seasons (1993-94) with 33 wins each. Meanwhile, laughing at the world yet again, the Syrian air force attacks the city of Duma killing at least 40 civilians and injuring more than 500 with a suspected poison gas attack.
  57. 2020: Since the World Health Organization seems to be in the tank for communist China, President Donald J. Trump wants to put a hold on any further monies from the United States until Beijing and the WHO account for their actions in the wake of the Wuhan Virus, aka the Kung Flu, aka Wuhan Flu, aka coronavirus crisis.  The president also wants to get to the bottom of WHY more black Americans are falling ill to this insidious virus.  What did the Chinese engineer in their Wuhan laboratory?  Currently, at the time of this posting, there are 1,428,428 confirmed cases around the globe what with 300,198 confirmed recoveries and 82,020 confirmed deaths.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China!  Meanwhile, in the United States, there are 398,185 confirmed cases with 12,844 confirmed deaths.  It would appear that Plaquenil aka hydroxychloroquine is extremely promising so states and locales (ahem, New York state and New York City), allow doctors to prescribe it to their extremely ill patients.  What do you have to lose, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio?  Nothing!  Stop playing politics with the lives of people.   Finally, singer-songwriter John Prine dies from COVID-19 at age 73.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

02. #PM01.1k.1c 801 Latino #12-C 08-19-16 (400)

 

On August 11, 2009, Phil Manzanera and 801 released a live album recorded in 1999, “801 Latino,” featuring a superb lineup of all LATINO musicians.  Let no one claim that Carlos Santana is the ONLY progenitor of the Latino sound in modern rock-and-roll as Manzanera, the son of a Colombian mother and an English father who spent part of his life in Latin America before relocating to England where the rest is history.  Joining him on this effort are Augusto Enriquez and Yamile (vocals); Aldo Lopez Gavilan (keyboards); Chucho Merchán (bass); and Carlos Valdez (drums).  Unlike any previous 801 efforts, this one veers hardcore Latino, which makes a superlative album to add to one’s growing collection of wonderful music.  Please, use the link we provide you here, so you can go directly to Amazon.com.  There, you can pick the CD up in the format, the condition, and the price that rocks your world.  We thank you for your patronage.
