Barbra Streisand

Knowing the Village Vanguard pretty well, I could imagine what Barbra Streisand's one-night-only performance, before only 123 people, must have been like, and what it felt like to be there.

UPDATE: "Here's To Life" - live performance from the Vanguard!

I look forward to "Love Is The Answer," her new album, which was produced by Diana Krall, and being able to see the Village Vanguard performance when it is released on DVD.

Linda Ronstadt Live - Tumbling Dice

It's back -- maybe not for long...enjoy!

Linda Ronstadt was a pioneer Rock and Roll woman who paved the way for those who came after.

We saw her at the Orpheum in Boston in 1974, before the era of elaborate stage sets, lighting and costumes. As this clip from that period demonstrates, she and her band absolutely kicked ass.

No frills, no smoke and mirrors -- just straight-ahead Rock and Roll in its purest form from one of the best singers of all time.
