Catching Up With The Ghost

Alright, let’s get a few things out of the way.  2017 has not been a good year for The Ghost.  My readers probably figured that out already, considering the fact that this is the first post on the blog all year long.  It would be wonderful if I could declare that The Ghost would be […]

So, have you check out my list of the Best Albums of 2016 (so far)?  I’d encourage you to do so now if you haven’t already.  Today’s Sunday Spotify 16 is something of an extension to that list.  The Ghost has included alternate favorite choices from certain albums and EPs.  In addition, I’m mentioning several […]

Looking Back, and Looking Forward

The last band has played.  The doors are closed, and they will not reopen.  Denton has lost one of the greatest music venues it has ever had with the closing of Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studio.  The long term consequences of losing such a major venue in the city will be seen in the upcoming months.

I suppose I can no longer say it’s a Sunday Spotify Sixteen, being Monday and all.  Still, I wanted to share the remainder of these playlists with you.  I’ll admit, these playlists were ordered alphabetically by artist.  Normally, The Ghost prefers to order the songs in such a way that there’s an ebb and flow […]

About six years ago, I had the privilege of meeting a very talented young lady from the Waco area named Jaimee Harris.  She had been performing as a duo with her father (Better Off Dad), and had just released for first solo EP, Farewell to Texas.  Although only nineteen at the time, songs like “Quicksand” and […]

I tried this about a month ago, with limited success.  This time, I’ve changed things up a bit.  No longer will I be asking you to select songs and write about them.  I’ll do the writing, and I’m even selecting the candidates for which songs will be on the playlist.  I sorted through eighty of […]

Last week, I received an email from Jeff Gage of the Dallas Observer, letting me know it was time to send in nominations for this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards.  I’ve been given the privilege to be on the nominating committee since 2008, and making these decisions is never easy. One factor that makes this […]
