LE STUDIO - TEMPLE OF SOUND - Episode One

Just found a really interesting video all about the famous recording studio "Le Studio" in Morin Heights, Quebec. Most fans of Rush know that this is the studio where the album "Moving Pictures" was recorded.
The video is only part one of the series starting back at the beginning of its existence. Enjoy!

Steve Winwood plays an acoustic version of Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home".

Found this little gem on YouTube today. This is Steve Winwood playing an acoustic version of Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home." I love it when an artist strips down their own song to its basic form. Just an acoustic guitar, voice, and two microphones to capture the magic! You can even hear the odd crackling of the wood in the fireplace! Awesome! Enjoy!

The Last Record Store - Cheeky Monkey Documentary

Here in Sarnia, Ontario we have only one real record store to buy music, movies and stuff at. It is called "Cheeky Monkey Music Store" located in downtown Sarnia, ON.

Local musician and filmmaker Dwayne Cloes has put together a really excellent documentary about the Cheeky Monkey Record Store owned and operated by husband and wife team of Roland and Mary Anne Peloza. Roland and Mary Anne are great supporters or our wonderful local music scene in Sarnia/Lambton. They sell all the products of local band and artists in their store and on their web site.

We love Cheeky Monkey Music Store and we wish many more years of great business in the community!

Now check out the documentary feature here:
