Show #216 – Vinyl, Vinyl, Vinyl

We have several grocery sized bags of vinyl that we use for Bakersfield & Beyond.  One bag is what might be labeled as traditional Bakersfield (okay, it’s got Waylon in it and we make an exception for Waylon) and another that contains newer albums that are still Bakersfield influenced.  When we get set up for a show, we also have a couple of cases full of CDs that we pull from.  Tonight, we shunned the CDs and focused on the two bags of vinyl pulling an album from one and then one from the other.  Alternating back and forth.  Something old.  Something not so old.  Something traditional Bakersfield Sound.  Something close but beyond.  We thought it was a good mix of tunes.

Show #215 – Tom Petty

Say, what does Tom Petty have to do with Bakersfield & Beyond?  Probably nothing.  But there is only a degree or so of separation and we like Tom Petty.  For music lovers, hearing about Tom Petty’s death after the horrific shooting deaths in Las Vegas was a double punch in the gut.  There’s just too much great stuff about Tom Petty’s music career to plop into a blog post paragraph.  Instead, we will advise you (highly advise you) to watch the documentary on Tom Petty “Running Down A Dream,” that is available on many sources found on the internet.  It’s long, but it is completely worth it.  It’s worth watching for a Tom Petty die-hard fan and it is even more worth it for the casual Tom Petty fan.  Thanks for the music, Tom.
