Neil is rocking’ . .

This is official Audio for Neil Young performing “Crime In The City” from the upcoming release Bluenote Cafe from the Archives Performance series available November 13th.

Most of the songs on Bluenote Cafe were plucked from live performances at the World in New York on April 18, 1988, Cleveland’s Agora Ballroom from Aug. 23 and Pier 84 in New York on Aug. 30. There are also a few songs originally performed at the Fillmore in San Francisco, CNE in Toronto and the Palace in Hollywood, among others.


Neil Young has announced Bluenote Café, the latest release in his Neil Young Archives series. The 2-CD live album comes out Nov. 13 and will compile performances from the rocker’s 1988 tour which, according to press release, was one of his “most funky and heartfelt periods.

”The collection is distinctive for a couple reasons. For one, Young’s sporadic series has generally focused on the earlier portion of his career, most recently on 2013’s Live at the Cellar Door (from 1970), and previously on Live at Massey Hall 1971, Sugar Mountain – Live at Canterbury House 1968, and Live at the Fillmore East (also from 1970). Additionally, Cellar Door culled tracks from Young’s six-night stand at the titular venue, while the others have focused on single concerts — but Bluenote Café draws from 11 concerts that took place from April to November 1988.



One of my childhood favorites . . .From 1959 ..

Rock and roll and rhythm and blues singer Frankie Ford, whose 1959 hit “Sea Cruise” brought him international fame, is dead at the age of 76.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office says Ford died Monday of natural causes.

Mike Shepherd, head of the Louisiana music Hall of Fame, says Ford had been ill for some time.

Ford had sung since childhood. His adopted parents, Vincent and Anna Guzzo of Gretna, brought him to New York when he was five to perform on the “Ted Mack Amateur Hour.”


Frankie Ford, the ever-colorful and often campy New Orleans rhythm & blues and rock ‘n’ roll singer and pianist who sailed the 1959 smash “Sea Cruise” to national stardom, died Monday (Sept. 28) at his home in Gretna following a lengthy illness. He was 76.

Mr. Ford was born in New Orleans on Aug. 4, 1939. As an infant, he was adopted by Anna and Vincent Guzzo, who named him Frank Guzzo. An only child, the young Frank Guzzo delighted in entertaining from an early age. At 12, after winning local talent contests, his parents drove him to New York for an appearance on “The Ted Mack Amateur Hour.” Soon after enrolling at Holy Name of Mary high school in Algiers, he joined a dance band called the Syncopators.
