Speak, Memory

This album, originally recorded in 2010, has several of my favorite tracks on it, including "Crossing the Line," "Midnight Town" and "The Devil Ain't Got No Music," which was inspired by a line that Mavis Staples uttered on "The Colbert Report" when asked how she felt about singing the devil's music. (Subsequently, in the past year, the blues singer Lurrie Bell has recorded a tune using the same title, but I got there first!). At any rate, after listening to this record recently, I thought it could be better - not only the mix, but the vocals as well. So I've given it a fresh coat of paint.



  1. Hi,
    It suddenly occurred to me that someone on here may have copies of either of the two great Marti Caine albums, either: 'Behind The Smile' (1978) or 'Point Of View (1981). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  2. Bout to get down with the Dead & this is perfect for preshow! What a smokin LP, you are on a fucking roll bro, don't slow! :) Speak----memory is 2:11 of pure gold,
    and love The Last On Your List too...that 'baaby' chorus is soo good, I can't get enough!!
