This Day In Music History

Today is the birthday of the mighty Maxine Brown who navigated soul, jazz and pop with equal deftness. Born in 1939 she had a string of hits in the 60’s for Wand Records including this song, penned by Carole King and Gerry Goffin. This performance also features a young Bernie Worrell of Parliament-Funkadelic fame on piano.

Tuesday Tip-Off: Babies In The Bardo

Early Day Miners bassist Jonathan Richardson recently released his instrumental solo debut under the name Babies In The Bardo. The self-titled release is 13 tracks of darkwave synth, bass, drums and drum machine goodness that fills our little goth hearts with happiness, or as close to happiness as is allowed by the goth charter. Originally recorded in 2007-2008 this album has been lurking in the shadows waiting for the right time to give the world the dark nihilistic soundtrack it needed, and if 2020 ain’t the year for that I don’t know what is.

Available in era appropriate highly limited cassette in two color schemes or as a digital download at
