Song of the Week: White Christmas

It's that time of year again. The time when children's thoughts turn to sugar plums and presents and when the Song of the Week turns to Christmas music.

We open this year's season with a release of Eric Clapton's new album Happy Xmas.

Song of the Week: Lazy Days

This sounds more like a summer tune, but this time of year a lot of people take off to use up any unused PTO they accrued during the year. So, as Eric Lindell recommends, take yourself a lazy day or two.

Song of the Week: Safari Song

I've only recently heard of Greta Van Fleet, but, damn, do they sound like a modern Led Zeppelin.

The Last Detective by, Robert Crais

Lucy Chenier's son, Ben, is kidnapped while Cole is watching him. When the kidnappers call, it's not for ransom, but to punish Cole for alleged war crimes during his tour in Vietnam. It's a race against time to rescue Ben from harm while Lucy's ex, Richard, accuses Cole of bringing danger into his son's life.

I don't have much to say about this one except it's another solid Cole story from Robert Crais. It's well written, twisty, and with a tense shootout at the end.

Song of the Week: More Than Truth

Blues Traveler released their 13th studio album, Hurry Up & Hang Around, on October 12th. A couple months ago, the song of the week was its first single: "Accelerated Nation". It was a good indicator of the quality of this album. It is easily the best Blues Traveler record since 2005's Bastardos!. It is a return to form for a great band.

This week's song is the eighth track off the album - "More Than Truth".
