Welcome to the all new Flyin Shoes Review

 

This site is the sister site to The House Concert Hub community and has been inherited in the main by kind donation of Shaun Belcher and Trailer Star.

It is the sum total of over ten years of tending a tender love of music by Shaun, a life time with Trailer Star and five or so years of an association with Rob Ellen from Medicine Music.

The House Concert Hub community will use it for the purpose of providing a online, all singing all dancing, review and preview area for the music of the community, and the music community at large. Have a look around tell your friends use the share button, tell the world.

We need reviewers, the idea is we have a correspondents in every area of the musical global village, it will be edited and co-ordinated by Rob Ellen of Medicine Music publicist promoter and presenter, if you wish to subscribe as a correspondent, join up here and drop Rob a line, he will send you cd's and send you to shows, display and publicise your content.

Here starts an other adventure.

Featured Artists of The Month - Phil Lee

Featured artists of the month Phil Lee www.philleeone.com 

The new CD "Some gotta lose.."  finds "The Mighty King Of Love" in a reflective &  pensive mood.

This from his nibs as to why. 

"This is where I go on about how great we all are and how darn lucky you are you bought this record and why it sounds like this and why these are the songs.

I spent 2013-14 touring and taking the time to visit some of the old haunts, the Hollywood places where I’d hang out or play, the New York dives that aren’t that anymore but high end coffee shops where the price of a cup and a pastry is equal to the rent I was paying in 1973. The graves of dead ex-girlfriends. The White Horse Tavern. The apartment on El Centro. Barney’s. The Troub. Where this was. Where that was. Where we met. Where we said goodbye.
A couple of times I had to stop the car and pull it together. It was too much. Sadness and nostalgia, just more debilitating. Some horribly wonderful yearning for a thing that was gone. Gone and never coming back. The heart of it though, it was there, a wisp of a thing I wanted desperately to hold in my hand but It was like trying to hold smoke.


Turns out the Portuguese have a word for this feeling (of course they would): saudade. Saudade was once described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure,well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone or something that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings all together, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling.

We made this record in a big house in upstate NY, quick and live with few overdubs and no edits. Just like in the old days. If you’re one for noticing this kind of thing, you’ll notice some songs have extra measures when we couldn't decide by telepathic communication who should play a solo or just hang out, a few numbers where we vamp on the end for what seems like forever because either it was getting good to us or I was thinking “am I going to have to buy all these people dinner?” or I was missing my dog, who knows. And yes, There are places you can hear actual bonafide mistakes! There was some chatter about fixing this stuff but in the end we decided to leave it like it was, just like we left it the day we walked out of the studio, to go back on the road... And I don’t mind saying, I love this record. I hope you do too"..

Have a listen to "Some gotta lose.." Here
