  1. Hotfox63, I remember you said that you loved The Roches. Maybe you have already heard, but Suzzy Roche just released a collection of songs (available on her website, and also available on Amazon) as a tribute to Maggie. It’s called „Where Do I Come From“ and has many previously unreleased demos, including a fantastic song from 1972 called „Stayin‘ Home.“ And if you order from Suzzy’s website, you get a nice photo of Maggie that Suzzy will sign.

    I’m trying to spread the word, so if you know any other Roches fans, please tell them…Peace!

    1. Yes, I heard that Maggie died of breast cancer in 2017. The Roches could live well from their music and they were loved by hundreds of thousands. This affection will not disappear so quickly.

    1. Coltranes Evolution lässt sich mit dieser Platte Schritt für Schritt, oder besser: Note für Note nacherleben. Seine Stücke entsprangen zuallererst musiktheoretischen Konzepten und weniger Gefühlslagen, Atmosphären oder gar spirituellem Empfindungen. Von seinen Eigenkompositionen auf dem Debütalbum ist vorallem der Titel „Chronic Blues“ interessant. Wie die meisten Blues-Performances von Coltrane ist er auch in einer Moll-Stimmung konzipiert.
