Naga asks Jagger, "Why you still doing it?" He says, "I don't know, I'm still enjoying it, I guess"

MusicLoad.Com presents Naga Munchetty's interview of Mick Jagger

It just doesn't get any cooler than this... A great blues record by the Rolling Stones titled Blue & Lonely, is a cover song record that gives tribute to some of their favorite blues influences... (see the music videos here)



But what also makes this album cool is this Mick Jagger interview by Naga Munchetty of BBC's Breakfast, where she pulls out a load of information that isn't normally so easily accessible... The multi-faceted women knows how to gets down to the nitty gritty with Mick Jagger, with grace & style.

All the questions and answers are what one would expect from greatness with a humble attitude. The final question by Naga is when she asks Jagger..."you have no regrets, do you?" and he says "I don't actually. No."

See the full interview between Naga and Mick Jagger below. Enjoy!

Eric Clapton & Duane Allman (The 1970 Studio Jams)

MusicLoad.Com presents the Eric Clapton & Duane Allman Studio Jams

Here is a stellar never officially released bootleg recording of Eric Clapton and Duane Allman from 1970. The Eric Clapton fan website, Where's Eric, noted the following about this jam:
"Tom Dowd is responsible for introducing Duane Allman and Eric Clapton. In 1970, Dowd was in the middle of recording the Allman Brother's second album, Idlewild South, when Eric's manager (Robert Stigwood) called to tell Tom that Eric would like to bring his new band, Derek and the Dominos, to Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida to record with him.

Tom later recounted the phone call that began it all. Now when the call came I was in the studio with Duane. I said, Hey, that's a hot one, kid! That was Eric Clapton's management talking about him coming here to record. Allman looks at me and goes You mean the guy from Cream? Do you think he'd mind if I just came to watch. I told him, no problem.

Eric and the rest of the Dominos arrived at Criteria Studios in late August. During the first week, most of the studio time was spent jamming and piecing together new songs."

Mazzy Star will forever be well known for their cult classic hit song titled Fade Into You. But like Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin, there is nobody named Mazzy Star.

Below is the lead single from Sandoval's latest and third solo album titled Under The Hunter, from her act now known as Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions. The song also features singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer, Kurt Vile. Enjoy! GC

Rudy Van Gelder - November 2 1924 - August 25 2016 - Shaped the "Blue Note sound"

Recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder

Rudy Van Gelder was one of the most legendary recording engineers in the history of the music industry. He worked on thousands of recording sessions with a wide variety of mainly jazz artists and acts on numerous different labels. He was widely known for his work with Blue Note Records. He passed away on Thursday August 25, 2016 at age 91. In 1946, he began recording in his parent's living room. Several years later in 1953, he was introduced to producer Alfred Lion and that is when things began to really take off. He worked with too many acts to mention in this post, but think of greats like Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, just to name a few. But that's just the beginning. Go through a list of much of his work here.

Just below is a short documentary on Rudy Van Gelder followed by an interview that is then followed by a few of the great albums he engineered. Enjoy! GC

Jackie Bristow - Whistle Blowin'

MusicLoad.Com presents Jackie Bristow

Just below is a music video to a song that was love at first listen by a refreshing new artist onto our radar by the name of Jackie Bristow, who is originally from the deep South of New Zealand.

The song is titled Whistle Blowin' from Bristow's Shot of Gold album. The song feels like it should be a hit on CMT and Country Radio nationwide. The album was produced by Mark Punch and the beautifully shot music video was directed and produced by Mark Tierney.

Rob Hotchkiss is back

MusicLoad.Com presents Rob Hotchkiss

Rob Hotchkiss is a champion songwriter and recording artist with a knack for consistently writing and performing songs with a timeless quality.

In the late 1980's and early 1990's he was in a great young rock band known as The Apostles. After a long run of hard knocks and an eventual recording contract and release with JVC Records, the group was phased out without any hits under it's belt. Three members of The Apostles, which included Rob Hotchkiss, became founding members of Train, which became the Grammy Award winning rock act when songs by Hotchkiss became certified platinum hits. It was a long hard winding road to the top.

After there was "enough" so called success for Hotchkiss, there came a point when he decided to drop out of Train's fast lane drama-laden pace. He had musical and personal differences with other members of the group. That must have been a tragic loss for the group, which was so deeply rooted in a sound that Hotchkiss had been crafting since his teens, long before Train came to fruition.

Now, after a long hiatus from the music business, Hotchkiss is back out performing and recently performed an outstanding intimate show at Genghis Cohen in West Hollywood. It was instantly apparent by the quality of his new original songs that Hotchkiss still has that "it" thing with his innate ability to cast a spell very well intact.

I first saw Rob Hotchkiss perform at several lunch time concerts when we attended the same high school and he was more solid and professional than most others who were leading bands. He had a special charisma that was very understated.

Years later, we met and I got the privilege of booking and promoting shows for the band at venues such as China Club and The Roxy in Hollywood which led to a short stint as the band's manager. I learned then about what Hotchkiss still exudes now. He knows what he wants and that is success. It's not about hype or bling. It's about happiness, being around nice stable ego-free people, a smooth work flow, with the strength and ability to walk away when things aren't living up to that. A big part of success to Rob Hotchkiss is staying down to earth and keeping it humble and gravitating toward and attracting the same kind of people. Rob Hotchkiss represents a thing that is lacking in much of today's music. He and his music have an organic uncontrived soul. And for all those reasons, I wish him much more well deserved future success. GC

Please enjoy the 15 song playlist below. All of the songs are excellent! Especially love Give It Time and Blind Faith.
