07.07.11 Awesome close to the Ottawa Bluesfest show

by mdroberts1243

Really appreciated the covers of No Quarter and Ohio last night in Ottawa! Especially significant to me since Ohio was the first single I ever bought and Houses of the Holy was my first full album as a kid!

07.06.11 Concert in Toronto

by vekatoronto

Yesterday's concert in Toronto was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
Does anybody know who is the guitarrist playing on far left side of the stage (not Moz)?
I just want to thank him very much for helping me when I fainted during the show...
Unfortunately my husband and myself missed the very end, but it was really a blast!!!
Won't miss any other concert!!!!

06.28.11 10

by Big B

I know it's cliche - I know it's somewhat trite - but because Give Till It's Gone is Ben Harper's tenth (and final for this contract) Virgin record, I figured let's do a top 10 list. Why not? We're here - you and I - so let's take a moment and look back on BH's career. Plus, my pretty wife and I are going to the back-to-back Chicago shows - what better way to piss off the band before a show than to rank their artistic work...??? guh...

Let's rank his albums in reverse order leading to the best album he's ever released. Normally, I'd say 'good to bad', but because the man hasn't put out a 'bad' album (only Michael Jackson could do that - hardee har har), I won't. His tenth best album would be any other band's single greatest - their shining moment. For BH, it's another chronicle of music... at least that's what my ragged and rusty (and generally rummy - as in A LOT OF RUM) brain has to say about it.

Right or wrong, however heavy-handed or absolutely necessary this list is, good or bad (there I go again), here are Ben Harper's best albums in reverse order:

#10 - There Will Be A Light
Best songs: Where Could I Go, There Will Be A Light, Well Well Well more»
