(2008 - 2009 Archived Other Music Page)

 

This is the Other Music section of Rainlore's World of Music, covering all types of music not already encompassed by existing categories on this site, and this is very much an "occasional" page.


In order to secure its future as an ongoing project, and indeed resume regular activity such as new reviews, Rainlore's World of Music urgently needs to raise substantial funds through some kind of sponsorship or similar. (Please also see The Future of Rainlore's World of Music on the About page, and the News entry for 2008/11/09 on the Home page.)

It has regrettably become impossible to keep Rainlore's World of Music going on a purely spare-time basis. The amount of work involved is simply too overwhelming. At the rate that for example CDs kept arriving for review and gigs were covered during 2004, there was enough work to keep two people busy on a full-time basis!

Of course, I wish to preserve the non-commercial and not for profit nature of Rainlore's World of Music, but without some kind of sponsorship the site simply cannot continue in any meaningful active way. Despite not having had any updates for about four years until its re-launch in October 2008, Rainlore's World of Music remains a popular site. The reviews and artists' profiles have always achieved excellent visibility in search results, and have also been referenced widely. There are also many new features I would like to add to Rainlore's World of Music, such as a Gig calendar to replace the old one and a Features section that should have been added during 2004 already, plus more. Sadly, without some form of sponsorship none of this will be possible and the site will at some point soon become purely archival.

If you think you might be able to help in any way, please get in touch through the sponsorship form.

Any further update will, I regret, likely be some considerable time in coming. I don't have the loan of a computer anymore, no computer at all for some time most likely and certainly no regular internet access, no assets left, and my financial situation is critical. So certainly in the absence of some kind of sponsorship, this may be good bye for some time.

Having decided to split up the remaining "catch-up" updates, there is one solitary album review here today. This arrived in 2007 courtesy of LA based label Craig 'N Co., but of course had to await a review until now. It's Blue Fringe's then latest release The Whole World Lit Up. Solid rock, but with a difference - it's Jewish themed with mixed English and Hebrew lyrics.

Just one new review for now. This should have gone up in 2007 but Rainlore's World of Music was effectively in hiatus at the time with the new version of the site already in development. It was at that time that LA based label Craig 'N Co. unexpectely sent me several pre-release promos, of which this was one. The album under review is none other than award-winning Hollywood actress and acclaimed singer-songwriter Merle Winningham's then latest - and still most recent - release, the thrilling Refuge Rock Sublime. Although entirely genre-defying, it could be described as a kind of country-bluegrass singer-songwriter album with a Jewish flavour. A real class act that's bound to appeal no matter where you from at this album.

Reviews


Reviews are one of the major features of this site. Generally, reviews feature CD albums, but they will by no means be limited to CD releases. Previews and live performances, and even the odd demo, will also be covered as and when opportunities present themselves. Also, reviews are not necessarily of the latest releases only, rather, I aim to generally cover the best of what's around and that will often include reviews of older releases. Also, there is an index listing all CD reviews available on Rainlore's World of Music, which includes reviews of music from other genres, for example Jewish music, steel pan music, classical, in fact just about anything, and another one listing all live music reviews.
