Video Jukebox - Jeff Beck

We all have out guitar heroes, but for my money one of the absolute best in terms of musical imagination, technique, and rock and roll attitude is Jeff Beck.  This week the jukebox features Beck in settings old and new, playing with the likes of Eric Clapton and Billy Gibbons. There's a ton of concert footage of Jeff Beck online, but these are some of my favorite shorter clips.  Rock on!


Crate Notes - Record Store Day and Hip Hop Is Read

Two items for today, pirate minions of note.  First up, all of you vinyl fans should be sure to get out on Saturday, April 19, and support your local independent record store as part of National Record Store Day.  Not only will you find music-lovers and other similar nerdery in those shops, but many artists provide special one-day only vinyl only releases.  Here's a list of special releases for the day. 

I also stumbled on this great website for those who might be curious about where the original samples for some of their favorite hip hop tracks came from.  Hip Hop Is Read has been building a Sample Set Index for some time now, and it's a fascinating resources to explore -- be ready to set aside time to listen, though.
