    Will Ian "Molly" Meldrum ever work for Channel 7 again?

    In front of a room full of supporters, Ian Meldrum affectionately known as Molly walked slowly to the front and took a seat in front of a microphone.

    His reason for attending the Readings Bookstore on Acland Street, St Kilda tonight was to launch his second book - "Ah well, Nobody's Perfect - the untold stories"

    With his red-headed grumpy and moody assistant Yael Cohn in the front row, Molly took questions from the audience about his experiences on TV and his well known...

  • Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band

    "The reality of Plastic Ono Band is that it contains eleven of Lennon’s most accessible and gorgeous melodies and riffs." (Gerry Mullholand - BBC review 2010)
    "An album that will be as much analysed as Sgt. Pepper over the years." (Billboard - 1971)
    "
    It remains one of the most audacious, iconoclastic albums in all of rock and roll." (Guitar World 2016)
    "
    The album certainly shows that he had yet to work through many unresolved matters, and that he still had much anger in him. However he was a brilliant man and knew how to channel these elements in such a way to create some brilliant, memorable and haunting tracks." (This review)

  • Cream of The Crate: Album # 196 - Ma Rainey: Ma Rainey

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 196 - Ma Rainey: Ma Rainey

    "Her deep, almost-vibratoless contralto sounded rough and unsophisticated compared to other commercial blueswomen but she projected a great depth of feeling and was adored by audiences." (US Library of Congress
    "Ma Rainey was one of the first singers to popularize the style (the blues)." (Joe McGasko - Bio May 2015)
    "
    When we listen to Ma Rainey, the recordings are very crude, but even so the power and mesmerism of her voice shows that pure talent and commitment to an audience makes Ma Rainey stand out even more today.

    "Pure gold is twenty-four karat, a pure alcoholic drink is 200-proof, and pure blues is that of John Adam “Sleepy John” Estes." (Blues Blast Magazine - August 2014)
    "His high-pitched inflections and relaxed phrasing is irresistible."
    (All About Jazz - October 2008)
    "
    Blues by nature is the story of pain,suffering, and occasionally a triumph, so is therefore by nature, emotional. John Estes took it too another level in regard to that emotion."
