Jake Gyllenhaal may have missed out on a chance to win a Tony Award for his performance in the recent revival of Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece musical “Sunday in the Park With George” (the producers decided to withdraw the production from Tony consideration), but he will have a chance to add a Grammy Award to his mantle for his performance. The 2017 Broadway Cast Recording of the production received a digital release on Sept. 22, just eight days before the eligibility cut-off for the 2018 Grammys. Read More

Bette Midler On Being A Transplanted New Yorker:

Bette Midler On Being A Transplanted New Yorker: We had a lot of earthquake damage (in L.A.) to take care of. There were a lot of things like `What are we going to do, are we going to tear the chimney down?’ There were all those kinds of decisions in the middle of trying to put the show back together. It was a strain, but we’re fine now. We tore the chimney down, by the way.” (Boston Globe, 1994)

But who is that mystery woman and why are we whistling the Wind Beneath My Wings?

Beyonce caused a stir when she referenced ‘Becky with the good hair’ on her new album Lemonade.

The song seemed to suggest that she was forgiving the man in her life for cheating with the aforementioned Becky.

A number of women were suggested as being the apocryphal Rebecca, including Rita Ora. Read More

“People have said nice things about me…”

People have said nice things about me and incredibly nasty things about me, it’s hard for me – I won’t say it isn’t. But in this business, you can’t play it safe. You have to take a lot of risks. You have to take your lumps. You do your best. Some people are gonna love it, some people are gonna hate it, you know? That’s the game. (Stereo Review: June 1977)

Music Artists Take On the Music Business, Calling for Change…And That May Mean Changes For Me And You

New York Times
Music Artists Take On the Business, Calling for Change
By BEN SISARIOJULY 31, 2015

Musicians are known for speaking out on issues like human rights, politics and the environment. They are less known for speaking out about how the music business itself should operate.

That may be changing.

When Taylor Swift publicly rebuked Apple in June over royalty payments, the company reversed its position and Ms. Swift’s move was celebrated throughout the music world as a victory. But it was only the most prominent example of a growing trend of industry-focused activism undertaken by a range of artists, from big stars who take a principled stand to middle-class musicians who need to worry about paying the bills.

From My Friend Ron…Re: Deluxe Edition It’s The Girls

10743649_10154776321925515_1764681367_n

Pre-ordered the Deluxe version from Target yesterday. Surprisingly, the Deluxe CD is less expensive than the regular version that doesn’t have the bonus tracks. Free shipping if you spend over $50 with Target; however, they won’t ship until street date, which means for some of us, we won’t get the CD until around the 8th-10th of November. Might be better to just go into the store on Nov. 4th and get it right away (however the price might be different than the pre-order price)……..as for the bonus tracks, based on hearing the originals, I think they’re quite interesting additions to the CD. “Mendocino” is hauntingly beautiful, and “The Hunter Gets Captured…” has a unique arrangement that slowly builds and becomes surprisingly addictive–it’s the song that when you finish listening to it, you immediately want to listen to it again (and again). As always, just can’t wait….. Read More

GirlsGate Part I: Bonus Songs Being Shopped To Several Outlets First

10422437_669344986495291_786618983135362200_nI don’t know all the record industry lingo but at this point the two bonus tracks are being shopped to Target and other outlets for an exclusive deal. (This is why the 2 songs disappeared through the WB store.)

If WB can’t get an exclusive deal then the bonus tracks will be sold through WB. Which means we’ll get the tracks eventually although it could be only digital.

This has happened with WB before with other artists. Things usually pan out in the end so let calmness prevail. Sorry I am the one that has to give you the news. Read More
