On this week's "The Bottomless Pit," I'll take a nostalgia trip back to 1974 and put the audio spotlight on three albums that came out that year and really blew my mind: The Sun Collection by Elvis Presley, Legendary Masters: Eddie Cochran, and The Bop That Just Won't Stop by Gene Vincent. Those records rearranged my headspace back in '74, and of course are still exciting to me now.
Then during Part 3, we'll shift directions completely and hear a round-robin of tracks by Anoushka Shankar (pictured), banjo genius Tony Trischka and young jazz guitarist Nir Felder. All three have great, recently-released albums. And, of course, there'll be much more (including Fred Blassie).
