Review: Myself and some firends have been travelling in the south for many years. We are also disaster volunteers and have from time to time been able to offer our services. I have been to all the places you talk about except Clarksdale and will be going Mar 27/09. Can't wait for the experience. You have the bug don't ya'. I swear that New Orleans is my mistress. She calls me. I have over the past 3 years become addicted to cajun/zydeco and the cajun soul. have been practicing my cajun jig for my stop in Lafayette at the Blue Moon Saloon to see the Pine Leaf boys. so nice to hear about your adventures. thanks

artist: Richard Ashcroft
Review: A tad pedantic ..Richard is an Artist of Artists,his emotive content and insight is spot on for he is an individual with a genuine soul,he does not have to better every track he brings forth.It`s all about the individual free spirit and his creativity,his mood,his feeling,where he is on his path in life.Bring forth more of Richard ashcroft and his expression!

Review: i love atmosphere sooo much, i loved these pictures and havent seen them before. but this unsettled me a bit : "Atmosphere will surely be heard loudly in the hip hop world once they rise from their indie roots and find a home among some of their more successful counterparts. "....... atmosphere is fine the way it is, me and everyone i know would be upset if they "rise" above themselves. thats stupid.

artist: Gipsy Kings
Review: the Gipsy Kings are awesome. period. What else can one say? They could rumba-ize the phonebook, and even THAT would be awesome. They live & breathe music, and that will never go away. If anybody observes anything 'lacking' I personally blame their trying to please the masses who expect some kind of 'Bamboleo' euphoria for everything they perform. That's not gonna happen in any universe... Music is music.

Cam, brisbane Australia 03/03/09
artist: Gary Numan
Review: I saw Gary Numan last night (2/Mar/2009) and I was remarkably impressed, sure I would've loved to hear some older stuff as I'm not up to date with his new work, but I was still lovin' it, a hell of a show, I mean he played some old hits, but the guy has a long song list and what point is there to revamp everything from the past when he is still actively producing music. I don't think he has changed direction, he has just gone darker and harder, unlike contemporaries of his time who have gone softer and nicer. It's great to see someone of his age not fall into the old peoples category - kudos to you Numan!!

megan, perth western australia 02/24/09
artist: roberta flack
Review: The Roberta Flack with WASO concert (February 21) completely sucked. She seemed completely disinterested in singing her songs, frequently would break away mid-song to discuss highly relevant topics like her favorite holiday destination (and guess what it wasn't Perth) and felt it necessary to have 20 minute intermission after performing the grand total of 4 songs. Now, maybe people with reduced life expectations and unlimited amounts of cash (this doozie cost $100 per head) would consider that a great concert, I call it a swindle. Well, at least Roberta Flack benefitted!

joanne, brisbane 02/06/09
artist: roberta flack
Review: Hi, What a shame about Roberta Flack. The above pretty well describes what happened at last night's concert here in Brisbane, Australia, Feb 4, 2009.
Roberta was a little late to start, sang 4 songs then had a break. Then after a few more songs, she said 'thank you' and left the stage. There were encores but many people started to leave already.
Although this concert didn't really take off, I don't regret seeing Roberta Flack live. She still has an amazing voice and she did offer entertainment with her funny little anecdotes. She just seemed really unsure of herself and she did't seem to like her audience. She was asking people to clap and sing and there was only a mild response and she just seemed to get more frustrated with it all. Well, could have been better. Hope she will feel better soon because she still is one of the greatest female singers around. Joanne
