Whole Notes Extra

Hey kids! I've been back from our Philly excursion for about a week and a half now and what a trip!! It was truly amazing! The Last Call at the Philly Spectrum was a BLAST! Here is a slide-show of pics from the event!

THE VILLAGE - No it's not a new thriller in theaters...technically the entire title of the new CD that features John Oates is called The Village: A Celebration of the Music of Greenwich Village. Released on 429 Records , this compilation includes 60's folk songs performed by contemporary artists such as John Oates, Los Lobos and Amos Lee. The album is available at Amazon for $11.99.

JOHN OATES NEXT SOLO - At his show in Lansdale, PA, John announced to fans, friends and family that his next solo effort will be released on 429 Records. After management at the label heard his song on The Village album they reportedly asked John if he'd be interested in recording his very own folk-style album. John's response: "Why, yes, yes I would!". If you are a long-time JO fan you know that his roots are steeped in folk music and he is a HUGE Doc Watson fan. John seems to be VERY excited about this album and I must say, as a fan, I am too!

LIVE FROM DARYL'S HOUSE - If you are like me, I impatiently wait every month for the next LFDH guest to be announced. To my surprise Daryl prematurely let the cat out of the bag at a recent Washington, D.C. show. Premiering on November 15th will be Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. Patrick is a great vocalist and the band as a whole writes some super lyrics. Check out the Fall Out Boy website HERE . Fave tracks of mine include 'Sugar, We're Going Down" and 'A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me'.

Presumably December's guest will be Jimmy Wayne who is currently enjoying chart success with a cover of D&J's 'Sara Smile'. His album of the same name drops on November 23rd. Visit Jimmy's website HERE to listen to the track, view videos and pre-order the album.

Due to the closeness of the album's release date to November 15th (the next LFDH) it is entirely possible that Jimmy will be on in November and Patrick will get pushed to December. Either way, tune in to LFDH.com at 8PM EST on the 15th to find out!

TOUR DATES - Currently Hall & Oates have no official tour dates announced. John has a number of dates scheduled including some special Christmas shows with musician Jerry Douglas who has a brand spankin' new Christmas album. Check out John's website for the latest dates & times!

ELIOT LEWIS - Hall & Oates uber-talented keyboardist, Eliot Lewis, will be performing his one-man Rock 'n Soul show at the Kicking Horse Grill in Southport, CT on Friday, November 13th. I promise, you don't want to miss this kids!

MESSAGE BOARD HIGHLIGHTS - Check out the HOF MESSAGE BOARD for all of the latest Hall & Oates news and updates. Check out pictures, reviews and video from the recent shows at the 9:30 Club in D.C. as well as The Last Call at the Philly Spectrum! Hope to see you there!!
