Page10 POST-GAZETTE, MAY 31,2013 BOB MARLEY & THE WAILERS - KAYA Island-Tuff Gong-UMe Marking the 35a Anniver- sary of Bob Marley & The Wailers' classic 'Kaya' re- leased in 1978. The remas- tered deluxe edition is an expanded, two-CO set that is jam-packed with 24 tracks. Disc One includes the original 10-song release, along with the B-side "Smile Jamaica." Disc Two has an unreleased live show, "Live at Ahoy Hallen," recorded on July 7, 1978 in Rotter- dam, Netherlands. Memo- rable tracks have, "Satisfy My Soul" which Bob wrote after the assassination at- tempt on his life and the gem "Is This Love." Concert treats have 'live' performances of, "Is This Love," "Easy Skank- ing," and Marley favorites -- "Concrete Jungle," "No Woman No Cry," "War/ No More Trouble," "Jam- ming," "I Shot the Sheriff," "Get Up, Stand Up" and the final track is the frenzy- causing "Exodus." Added to all that excitement is a 23-page booklet that includes lyrics, rare photos, plus extensive liner notes. Marley's world- wide fame was well-deserved fame! THE ROYS- GYPSY RUNAWAY TRAIN Rural Rhythm Records Fitchburg, Massachusetts born, award winning, sibling duo of Elaine and Lee Roy serve up a 'baker's dozen' of six Roys' originals and seven Bluegrass and Country clas- sics. Roy creations shine via the fiery, "You .Can Count On My Love," the emotional "Another Minute," as Lee de- scribes his 'work-in-progress' on "Workin' On It," the inspi- rational "Enough For Me," while Elaine relates her recent divorce in song on "Half Of Me," plus their title track and single composition "Gypsy Runaway Train." Fans of The Roys will devour 'clas- sics' as, Bill Monroe's "Blue Moon Of Kentucky," the hard-working "Born With A Hammer In My Hand," trailed by Johnny Bond's "i Wonder Where You Are Tonight" and the gospel beauty from Lester Flatt/Earl Scruggs "He Took Your Place." There had to be a Haggard diamond on The Roys' album and there is in the form of Mede's "Ramblin' Fever," plus the questioning *What Gives You the Right," and the Allan Bryant classic -- "Those Memories of You." THE ROSENTHALS - FLY AWAY American Melody Records Imagine a collaboration of a jazz trumpeter and a blue- grass singer and you think to yourself -- that will never work! Enter Daniel Rosen- thal (harmony vocals, trum- pet, bass, Fender Rhodes and percussion) and father Phil (lead vocals, guitar, mando- lin, banjo and percussion), a member of Boston's 'Either/ Orchestra) and they pull it off nicely. Pick your favorites from slices as the tender "This Rainy Afternoon," the trumpeting "I'll Fly Away," the haunting "Since I Met Her," the tango-styled *Mas- querade Ball," the laid back instrumental "Relaxed," plus the pickin' and singin' tale of "Pretty Polly." Pick up the beat for "Sunlight on the Gar- den," the fast-paced chirping horn of "Little Birdie," the earthy tale of "Dirt Farmer," the saying something sound of "We'll Talk Tomorrow". and finish up with the harmonies of "Waitin' On Down The Line." Excellent CO! STUCK IN LOVE - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK Var~se Sarabande Records 'Stuck In Love' the film fea- tures an original score by Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott, from the band Bright Eyes, plus new songs as the single "At Your Door" by Mogis and Walcott featuring Big Harp, "You Are Your Mother's Child" contributed by Conor Oberst and "Somersaults In Spring" from Friends of Gemini: Corina Figueroa Escamilla, Nathaniel Walcott and Mike Mogis. Weaving their sounds into the film, these artists created music that definitely contributes to the film's success. The score features tunes as, "Nose- bleed," "Peeping Tom," "Rusty Tucks Kate In," "Goodbye," "Bill Gets Dressed," "Bill Tells Sam The Truth" and "Erica At The Door." Artist contri- butions have, "American Man" from Rio Bravo, "Polk- adot" (Like Pioneers), "Will You Be By Me" (Wallpaper Air- planes), "I Won't Love You Any Less" (Nat & Alex WolfO, plus "Between The Bars" (Elliott Smith), from Bright Eyes -- "The Calendar Hung Itself" and Bill Ricchini makes it all history perform- ing "A Mountain, A Peak." An enjoyable soundtrack! LASZLO GARDONY - CLARITY Sunnyside Berklee College of Music professor, pianist Laszlo Gardony offers up ten emo- tional jazz gems on his solo album, 'Clarity.' Gardony re- cently celebrated the release of his solo CD (May 10th), at Cambridge's Regattabar. The ten track collection of what has been labeled '21st century jazz,' starts Laszlo's journey with the moving "Settling Of A Racing Mind," trailed by the deep "Surface Reflections," searching for answers on "Looking Deeper," the sur- real "Working Through" and the encouragement of "Find- ing Strength." The flow of 'Clarity' is constant, con- tinuing with the lengthy (11:31) "Better Place," the promising "Opened Window (Hopeful Horizon)," the brev- ity of a keyboard delight tiffed "Tempering," the breezy feel of hair in the wind via "Resilient Joy," and the peaceful beauty melody that emanates from "Resolution (Perfect Place)" is a fitting fin- ish to a fine album from a master of the ivories -- Laszlo Gardony! The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani THANK GOD FOR CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO I get most of my news from conservative talk ra- dio, Fox News and a couple of good conservative news- papers. Thank God because most of the news media is drowning in their own liberal self-righteousness. MSNBC is totally useless and their ratings verify it. If they don't wise up, they will be the liberal cable network most likely to croak before this president in office fin- ishes his second term. There are so many hosts on this cable network who qualify for worst honors that it is hard to choose between them. I love WRKO in Bos- ton: Jeff Kuhner in the mornings, Howie Carr in the afternoons and Mark Levin late at night. Also, I am glad to be able to pick up WCRN AM830 because it is the new home of Michael Graham noon to three. TOWNIE REUNION TIME APPROACHING The "Blast from the Past" is coming quickly. The date is June 21st. The time is 7:00 pm until midnight. The place is the new Knights of Columbus Hall on Medford Street. For ticket informa- tion, go to 617-417-1290.

QUINCY REPUBLICANS SUMMER BAR-B-CUE The Quincy Republican City Committee is holding its annual "Kick-Off Sum- mer Bar-B-Cue on June 20th from 6:00-10:00 pm at the Gazebo at the Best Western Adams Inn at the bottom of the Neponset Bridge in Quincy.

SEIU PUSHING ED MARKEY SEIU made a neighborhood drop in East Boston recently distributing a nice piece of campaign literature using the purple and yellow colors of SEIU. It also came in two languages. English was thank God still first. It shows the smiling faces of Ed Markey and Barack Obama. I have seen Markey smiling recently but with all the bad news down in Washington, the president's smile ap- pears to have been replaced with a presidential frown. SEIU has moved into the neighbor organizing strat- egy. When they're not trying to sign up those at the bot- tom of the economic ladder, they appear to be supporting illegals and supporting the most radical lefties out there. Usually who or what- ever they are for, I'm not. PLEDGES ONLY TWO TERMS In a campaign stop in Quincy, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez pledged that if elected next month, he would only serve two terms. He doesn't believe politics should be a lifetime profession. Gomez standing in front of a statue of John Adams stated, *I respect him (Markey) but he's been down there 37 years and voted against term limits. He's been down there not only since I was playing Little League base- ball but before Tom Brady was born." Great quote if you ask me. Michael Graham radio talk show host recently told his listeners that he won't be voting in next month's special U.S. Senate election since Markey is a liberal Democrat and Gomez is running as an almost lib- eral Democrat. HONORING THE MEMORY OF JERRY ZULLO Recently, over on Saratoga Street in Orient Heights East Boston, the City of Bos- ton joined members of the Zull0 family to pay tribute to the late Jerry Zullo who owned several restaurants in the neighborhood over a span of 50 years and the city dedicated a bench in front of Donna's Restaurant owned by Jerry's daughter, Donna Zullo Marquardo. For over his last 20 years he held court at Donna's early every morning, working the grill and handling customers. The plaque on the bench reads: "An Orient Heights Legend, In Memory of Jerry J. Zullo, November 2, 1931- February 5, 2011. Forever in Our Hearts."
