'Blue Room,' Ana & Milton Popovic (ArtisteXclusive Records, HHHH 1/2)
This May 19 release comes from blues powerhouse daughter Ana Popovic and her father/ guitarist Milton (Milutin), playing rhythm, lead, acoustic and electric guitars depending on song/singer. The album was produced by Jim Gaines (Albert Collins, George Thorogood and others); and it is a musical document of Ana's warm, continuing relationship with her dad, who inspired her career path by jamming with her back in Serbia. They're aided by keyboardist Rick Steff, drummer Steve Potts and a few others.
I especially enjoy the spirited John Lennon cover "I'm Losing You," the nifty "Evening Shadows" (Van Morrison), the blazing "Somebody" (Brannen/Tempchin), "We Used to Know," an old Jethro Tull tune by Ian Anderson and Jimmy Reed's "Baby What's Wrong."
Different listeners may prefer other tracks, but this recording is a blues-guitar-lover's dream.

Although Casey Kasem passed in 2014, this may be connected to his Radio show is spirit. I always enjoyed his upbeat style even though I wasn't that concerned about how songs were judged. To me the BEST TULL SONGS are those that don't get played on radio or win awards...
futureshock: "Macropod". That sounds like the ultimate. "Hello, my name is J.P.Carruthers, Macropod, Intended At Large. My podcast is in Wales. I play the glass harmonica in 7 languages and edit outgoing Sumerian braille. Please leave a message."

maddogfagin: Macropod sounds like an overlarge ipod, as opposed to a minipod used by small furry animals.

futureshock: Ages ago, I saw Mr. Thompson at the Vancouver Folk Fest, but I worked fence security and was far away, couldn't hear much. Just being there was amazing though, near the musicians all weekend, saw amazing things. Live music is BEST!

steelmonkey: 'Tragic busy at work but celebrating 44th anniversary of best Tull show ever: Feb. 5, 1975 in El Paso,Texas, one of two gigs inserted in between the famous, 5 night run in LA. Listened to War Child and think 'Two Fingers is better than 'Lick Fingers'.

maddogfagin: War Child is a great album, criminally underrated in the music press but loved by the vast majority of fans.
