Blind Tiger Record Club Podcast

By: Blind Tiger Record Club
  • Summary

  • Blind Tiger Record Club founder David W. Williams, Product Manager Rudy Newman, and artist manager Kevin Lee host panel discussions on albums released on vinyl each month. There are three episode formats: 1) The LP Interview - Guest panelists include artists, producers, songwriters, managers, booking agents, entertainment attorneys, and other music industry veterans that are passionate about music and the creation of music. We discuss ONE album with the guest panelist and talk about their career and perspective on art, culture, and the creative process of the music. 2) "The Forty Five" - This is a Club episode where we discuss the Records of the Month, Spotlight Albums, and New Store Additions released at BlindTigerRecordClub.com. We cover several albums per episode and these episodes are a great way to get exposed to newly released music. 3)"The B-Sides" - Sometimes when we have guest panelists on for the LP Interview segments, we get a lot of extra "talk". When we edit our episodes down, we try to focus the interview on the album we are discussing. Many times, we discuss much more and that is all dropped in the B-Sides. Each episode digs into a new release, reissue, or influential album from the club or guest panelist perspective. Listen and leave with stories and new perspectives on albums you have heard, and hopefully new music to explore or rediscover. B.T.R.C. champions music from all genres and believes vinyl is king. podcast@blindtigerrecordclub.com

    On this episode of the Blind Tiger Record Club Podcast, David W. Williams and Kevin Lee discuss the Blind Tiger Record Club's November Records of the Month.

    We discuss all four styles of the B.T.R.C. Records of the Month - Singer Songwriter, Rock & Alternative, Jazz Soul & Blues, and Classics.  We talk about new releases and reissues from Bonny Light Horseman, Train, Lee Fields, and ZZ Top.  The albums from these artists are discussed and clips of songs from the albums are played. 

    We discuss the return of Eric D. Johnson, Anais Mitchell, and Josh Kaufman to the Bonny Light Horseman line up.  We also discuss the major differences between Bonny Light Horseman's  Rolling Golden Honey and their 2020 self-titled, Grammy Award Nominated album, and how this new release really makes the trio an actual "band" versus a side project.  We talk about Train's AM Gold and how strange this release has been from its Billboard numbers to its absence at Triple A radio, even though the band has a long history at the format.  We talk about the fact that Pat Monohan is a really strong frontman, but is also the only original member of the band still in Train.  We dive into traditional soul artist Lee Fields new solo album, Sentimental Fool.  We discuss the fact that this is his first album without the Expressions in twenty years.  We also talk about producer Gabriel Roth, and how he co-owns Dap-tone Records and performed and produced Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings for twenty years.   We cover ZZ Top's1983 release, Eliminator, and how it moved the band from blues based boogie rock to a more mainstream, synth driven, new wave rock.  We also discuss the important branding decisions made with Billy Gibbons and Bill Ham to include Gibbon's 1933 Ford Coupe in all the album's marketing and several music videos.   

    We also briefly discuss Taylors Swift's new Billboard record shattering new album, Midnights, and how well the album and her lead single, "Anti-hero" has done.     Here are the albums included in this episode of the Blind Tiger Record Club Podcast:

    On this episode of the Blind Tiger Record Club Podcast, David W. Williams is joined by Kevin Lee and Jonathan Hibma to present the first ever B.T.R.C. Podcast Special Event:  The Top 10 Halloween Songs of All Time.  On this show, we will discuss songs by  Stevie Wonder, The Doors, Michael Jackson, Warren Zevon, Blue Oyster Cult, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Ray Parker Jr, AC/DC, Rockwell, and Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt Kickers.  The songs are discussed and clips of songs are played.  We talk about charts, both at the time of the song's original release and any "re-entry" into Billboard's Hot 100 every Halloween.  We discuss TV and Film syncs, and the many cultural impacts that all the songs have had which is why they are on our G.O.A.T. list.

    We also present other important Halloween songs that are TV Themes, big film songs, or other culturally important songs as our transitions between each song on our Top 10 list.  This allows the panel to discuss ten more songs that include Halloween defining songs such as the themes of John Carpenter's Halloween, Tales from the Crypt, The Twilight Zone, Addams Family, and Stranger Things.  We also discuss other soundtrack and Halloween songs like Danny Elfman's "This Is Halloween" from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' "Red Right Hand" made famous by the Scream franchise.  Andrew Gold's internet sensation "Spooky Scary Skeletons" and the genre bending song by the godfathers of "Horror Punk", the Misfits' "Halloween".  We also discuss a second song from the Stranger Things franchise that utilizes an amazing sampling of Journey's "Separate Ways".

    It's a really fun way to celebrate a lot of the incredible music surrounding Halloween.
