Where Is The OUTRAGE?

It is quite obvious that the District Attorney of New Orleans, Eddie Jordan, is incompetent. Even if he isn't the office needs a boost, just like a sports team who fires their head coach. Eddie Jordan needs to step down or be forced out. Read these articles, google more, and make your own decision.

TWO BIG COMPILATION CDs: House MD Soundtrack and Tribute to Fats Domino

Basin Street Records is participating in two big compilation CDs being released this month. The first is the House MD soundtrack that includes Got to Be More Careful by Jon Cleary. It turns out that Hugh Laurie (the actor who plays House) is a fan and picked Jon's music for one of the episodes in season 3. Read what Hugh said in Rolling Stone HERE.

The second cd is called Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino. It is a double CD that contains tracks from everyone from Elton John to Paul McCartney to Willie Nelson to Bonnie Raitt and from Henry Butler to Theresa Andersson to Jon Cleary. Read more about it HERE.

K-Ville on Fox TV set in New Orleans

Tonight is the debut of K-Ville on Fox TV. This drama is set in New Orleans. I've previewed the show. It has great shots of New Orleans, but PLEASE REALIZE it is NOT REAL. New Orleans is a lot of fun to visit and a great place to live. In the first few minutes, a beautiful actress, Fahlownee Harris, is shot and killed. Her character is playing a jazz singer on Bourbon Street. For those of you who want to see more of Fahlonee, she also appears in the music video of Los Hombres Calientes' Vodou Hoodoo Babalu.
