Recent reviews...

Although from time to time this poor Rylander Quarterly blog may seem ignored by its explanation is that I am writing reviews that appear elsewhere. For instance I recently reviewed Pete Townshend's autobiography Who I Am for Critics at Large. You can read that by following this link link. Before that I read Neil Young's book Waging Heavy Peace which I also wrote about at Critics at Large. I've been reading quite a few books by musicians lately, including this fascinating one by Talking Heads' David Byrne. Not an autobiography, really, but certainly a book informed by the life and career of its author! I wrote about a few new blues albums here. And about a Jesse Winchester Tribute album here. I even discuss new CDs from Bill Bourne and Annabelle Chvostek. Over at Sleeping Hedgehog I reviewed a new 2 CD collection of all of Dion's singles on the Laurie label! Great stuff.
So I haven't been ignoring the scene...just submitting my thoughts elsewhere. Pay attention to Critics at Large. My associates on the staff also write some pretty good stuff. It's a daily blog, and with the Herculean efforts of Kevin Courrier and the rest of the editorial gang, it's much more regularly updated than Rylander. After all...I only promised to be Quarterly!
