Tommy's Fresh Record Club #2 John Mayer Trio - Try!

First things first, I love live records. Try! is my all time favourite live album, this was the moment John Mayer became a guitar hero and banished all previous perceptions people had of him as a musician. Backed by rock legends Pino Palladino (bass) and Steve Jordan (drums) the sound is no frills, raw, searing blues rock. Featuring a mix of original tunes, covers and re-workings of earlier Mayer songs.

Touring as the trio gave Mayer a fresh perspective and inspired the tracks that were soon to be heard on the awesome 'Continuum' record.

Check out this live record and then go grab 'Continuum', you won't be sorry!

Tommy's Fresh Record Club #1Funkadelic - Maggot Brain

Maggot Brain, released July 1971 is considered by many as the seminal release from George Clinton's funk collective Funkadelic. I love this record for many reasons, the most obvious being the amazing guitar work of the late great Eddie Hazel. Legend has it that George Clinton told Hazel to play as if his mother had died on the title track, the feedback drenched results are truly stunning.

Each track on the record is wildly different and encompasses funk, hard rock, soul and elements of gospel. This is the sound of a band at their peak.

Check it out!

Neon Neon - Stainless Style

Bit late on this one... Have been listening to this record a lot. It's a collabo between Gruff Rhys of Super furry animals fame and producer Boom Bip. The album is loosely based on the story of De Lorean car inventor John De Lorean (read up on that one). Check it out, it straight up bangs!
