FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK: RED BEARD – “A Place To Settle Down”

Red Beard – ‘Dakota’ is available @ iTunes. by Walter Price   There is no denying the American Southern Rock influences Spain’s Red Beard (Jaime Jiménez) exudes.

STORYTELLERS: KRS-ONE / Boogie Down Productions – “Love’s Gonna Get’cha (Material Love)” (Edutainment LP)

KRS-One is available @ iTunes. by Walter Price   Season Two of Luke Cage is a rare example of a show getting better with age. Albeit a young age.
