How many classic rock guitar players does it take to change a lightbulb?
CleverJoe says: Five. One to actually do it, and four to reminisce about how much better the old tubes were.

3.)... Best MP3 Player Reviews

So many MP3 Players, so little time. When portable MP3 players first became popular, they were relatively simple devices that were good for one thing: playing MP3 files. Today, portable MP3 players like the famous Apple iPod and Creative Labs Nomad have evolved into outstanding music playback systems far more capable then the early day versions.

4.)... Flamenco Guitar CD by Johannes Linstead

Flamenco guitar playing - are you a fan? CleverJoe always perks up when a 'world music' CD demo comes across his desk. This week saw the arrival of a great instrumental CD by flamenco guitar player and Canadian songwriter Johannes Linstead.

This is Linstead's fifth CD, and it's called 'Mediterranea'. A multi-instrumentalist, Linstead also plays piano, mandolin, bouzouki, bass, wood flute and percussion. He has played and recorded with musicians from around the world, including Cuba, Columbia, Syria, Greece, Mexico, Russia and Ukraine. Influences from many of these countries can be heard on 'Mediterranea', although it never strays too far from Linstead's signature flamenco guitar playing roots. It seems to take a couple of songs for the CD to really 'warm up' to the passion flamenco music is known for, but by the fifth song "Adelita", Linstead is in full form and no longer holding back. Passionate and well written songs such as "Estrellas Sobre Ella" are a treat for the ears and heart, with hauntingly beautiful instrumental arrangements and subtle background vocal layers.

Although it takes some time for this CD to abandon restraint, if you're a fan of flamenco music, 'Mediterranea' won't disappoint.
