Daryl Hall has reworked his show Live from Daryl’s House and it’s still one of the best music shows going. Originally set in a barn on his rural property, it was a jam session sleepover recorded for our entertainment. He …

This was the early days of mp3 and internet-served music and the begin of the …

Living For The Live

There’s a lot going on in this clip. It’s pretty good.

Ray Charles + Stevie Wonder, doing one of Stevie’s funk songs, with neither of their bands, for an awards show. It looks like the late 80’s with plastic keyboards …

Be Yourself with Cameo

Hard funk from Cameo, checking out the new thing called a music video. I have a concept – stand in a white room and pretend you are playing a gig. Wear your best 80’s gear, this is going to be …
