Vinyl Review: The Kinks and Phantom, Rocker & Slick

Aloha, everybody, 

As my buddy PennySleeves likes to say, "Another day, another video". 

This time it's about the vinyl. Let's revisit "Low Budget" from a band everybody knows - and then shift gears to a band I'm guessing few know. 

What do you get when you join two ex-Stray Cats with a David Bowie guitarist? I invite you to check out my newest video and find out!

Vinyl Review: The Blasters and Gregg Allman Live Double LP

Aloha, everyone, 

Let's check out a couple of albums I picked out of the used vinyl bin. 

The first is from a most popular roots-rockabilly band with roots in the 80's that is still rockin' the dance halls today. 

The second is Gregg Allman's live double LP, recorded in Carnegie Hall, with backing from a 24-piece orchestra. A cool find, indeed.

It's Been Too Long Since This Arrived From Too Many Verlanders

Aloha, everybody, 

Happy 2019! I've got a few bits of news to drop on you all, and the first order of business is this new YouTube video showing off the holiday cardboard goodies that I received from my long-time trading partner, Dennis, over at Too Many Verlanders. Hope you'll check it out. 

I also hope that you'll continue to check out the content on my NEW YouTube channel - NetChucArts. This ATBATT video is its inaugural upload. 

I created the new channel because I'll be expanding the vaiety and amount of YouTube content I'll be creating in 2019. I'll still be creating Dodgers news and opinion videos, but those will remain on the LA Dodger Report channel. 

I'll be filling NetChucArts, my new YouTube channel, with content about our card collecting hobby, as well as beer reviews, my quest to rebuild my vinyl records collection, and whatever else should strike me as video-worthy. 

In addition, I'll also be showcasing my art work on the new channel. A couple of you know that I'm an artist, so I look forward to you joining me on YouTube as I share my creations. Perhaps we'll shift those shares into the next level as you bring some of my original art into your own homes. 

That's all to come as 2019 unfolds. Please enjoy my first upload and take a few seconds to Like and Subscribe to my new channel.
