Re: “Famed Songbook "Rise Up Singing" Gets a Sequel, "Rise Again"

It's really lovely that they put this sequel out. So many of my friends over time (and I) have been hoping for one. It will become as well-used, and well-loved as the first version by so many.

I feel that Blood and Patterson blew one thing: the hand-drawn titles and lyrics gave Rise Up Singing and extra-special warm feel. If they ever read this comment, I'd humbly like to ask them to consider that for their third volume.

If you're going to get this songbook, please buy not from Amazon, but from either their site or an independent bookshop where you live -- (in either size).

Re: “The Indomitable Rise of Kat Wright

Don't know. Producers, and record labels alike, still hate the idea of a band in 2016. Bands were trouble. Sole individuals like Grace or Kat are easier to deal with, and as long as you don't let that band make their presence known too strongly, everything will work out just fine. The truly great producers of the past knew how to take all of the immense talent and let it run without running amok or runing over each other, but still produce works that were beautiful in total. If Led Zeppelin came together in 2017 as a bunch of brand-new kids some producer would be saying "yeah Robert you sing, and you other guys, just don't play so damn loud back there, ok?" Just IMHO. Love!

Re: “The Indomitable Rise of Kat Wright

Can you sing us a lullaby, dear Kat, on this sad day after the election? We the people, need some comforting and healing balm.

Great history and future Tsunamibots! Glad my TRS-80 model 1 level 1 managed to keep up. I'm happy to be part of it.

Re: “Grace Potter and Guster's Ryan Miller Talk Vermont

Grace is a remarkable artist, performer and person. Her band has an incredible energy and personality. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to watch her perform live.

Re: “Grace Potter and Guster's Ryan Miller Talk Vermont

Exactly, Egmatic. Not to mention that picture of her tells me what she is selling - and it's not music.

Re: “Grace Potter and Guster's Ryan Miller Talk Vermont

Driving up from Tennessee to Burlington as we speak specifically for this festival. I was born and raised in Miami and still live there. My mom bought an old farmhouse on 21 acres in TN and is renovating it. She is uniquely going back to her Roots while I'm venturing into and up through this beautiful counrty and VT is an ideal destination for this journey together.

Re: “Grace Potter and Guster's Ryan Miller Talk Vermont

Great festival, but for that headliner. This article shows her lack of depth and the complete sell-out her career is. But good for her, if what she wants is money and Hollywood and all that superficial crap.

Re: “Four More Local Albums You (Probably) Haven't Heard

Maybe my access is blocked because of my browser, but I couldn't connect to the Queen Louisa track.

Wow, "Pretty Lousy" is actually pretty great! He's got a nice mixture of uptempo and downtempo songs, too. I quite enjoyed it.

The UnKommon album, to be honest, isn't the style to which I typically listen, but those rappers clearly have a lot of style and skill. I hear a couple of different approaches to rapping switching things up.

Re: “Bernie Songs From VT and Beyond

This website is really well keep going like this having different songs on this page keeps us fresh and very cool.
Music is a really good thing for human being. Music is something that every person has his or her own specific opinion about. Different people have different taste, and various types of music have many ways of leaving an impact on someone. It can be relaxing, angering, soothing, energizing, and many more. There are so many types of music out there today. songs Rap, pop, rock, country, indie, alternative, hardcore are some of the abundant types in the world.Music sends out either good or bad messages that have big impacts on how people act. People usually become friends with others who have a same taste in music as the rest of the people they hangout with, or it can be vice versa. People may not want to
associate with people who have different tastes in music because they’ll argue about what they think is better but its just their own opinions.I can personally relate to the effects that music has on its listeners and users because it’s a big part of my life. Every day I listen to the words and sounds of different singers/bands with contrasting ideas and opinions. The music I listen makes me who I am?

Re: “Kyle Kinane on Comedy, Bernie and Mountain Biking

Bicycles should not be allowed in any natural area. They are inanimate objects and have no rights. There is also no right to mountain bike. That was settled in federal court in 1996: . It's dishonest of mountain bikers to say that they don't have access to trails closed to bikes. They have EXACTLY the same access as everyone else -- ON FOOT! Why isn't that good enough for mountain bikers? They are all capable of walking....

A favorite myth of mountain bikers is that mountain biking is no more harmful to wildlife, people, and the environment than hiking, and that science supports that view. Of course, it's not true. To settle the matter once and for all, I read all of the research they cited, and wrote a review of the research on mountain biking impacts (see ). I found that of the seven studies they cited, (1) all were written by mountain bikers, and (2) in every case, the authors misinterpreted their own data, in order to come to the conclusion that they favored. They also studiously avoided mentioning another scientific study (Wisdom et al) which did not favor mountain biking, and came to the opposite conclusions.

Mountain biking accelerates erosion, creates V-shaped ruts, kills small animals and plants on and next to the trail, drives wildlife and other trail users out of the area, and, worst of all, teaches kids that the rough treatment of nature is okay (it's NOT!). What's good about THAT?

To see exactly what harm mountain biking does to the land, watch this 5-minute video:

In addition to all of this, it is extremely dangerous: .

Re: “Sail Away: Overlooked at Home, Vermont's Mellow Yellow are Big at Sea

First time Moodies cruisers here, but Mellow Yellow was a highlight for us on that one and the Lebrewski.
Only slightly bummed out that Dusty Love is NOT a real name.😉

Re: “Sail Away: Overlooked at Home, Vermont's Mellow Yellow are Big at Sea

Love this article!!! I'm a three time Moody Blues Cruiser and Mellow Yellow is the House Band for us! Each and everyone is an incredible musician, and I never cease to be amazed at their versatility! We are so lucky to have them and I know I speak for all the Cruisers who can hardly wait until the next time!

Re: “Rocking the Boat: A Caribbean Cruise with Vermont's Mellow Yellow

You should have been on the Moody Blues Cruise instead. Much more relaxed (and older) crowd, plus Mellow Yellow played 4 times.

Re: “Dialogue For Three

I loved this band. What happened to them? Did more get recorded and released than the Dangerforce Five split with The Interior? (another band I miss dearly)

Re: “Nectar's, a Burlington Landmark, at 40

Empty Pockets had some really fun gigs at Nectars!! The list of forbidden tunes posted on the stage wall always cracked me up! "No Stairway to Heaven. No Mustang Sally". "Sally" was always one of EP's most requested tunes because no one sings it like a girl, right? So sure enough, we'd get two measures in, and cardboard coasters flung by irate bartenders would come whizzing through the air! Had one hit me in the face once, and I grinned and kept on singing!

Thank you, Nectar, for all you did for the VT music scene! We love you!
