CD 8 will be a return to the basics. I started listening to Freddie King, Albert King, BB King, Tiny Grimes, John Lee Hooker, The Allman Brothers, Foghat, and offshoots early one, Oh and Howling Wolf, Rev Gary Davis, Rolling Stones, and more in the formative years. This CD will be about the blues. A lot I wrote in the mid 80's but will update.
I never did like rap mainly because of the foul language and just samples of simple stuff. CD 4 of mine will be jazz and rock based with social issues being discussed like mentally ill and how treated in NYC like felons at hospitals, no sympathy to speak of and the guards at the Psch wards in NYC are clod blacks, no whites, the blacks/carribeans/Africans who cant speak english and have the table manners of a chimp. Not just NYC but other places on different issues. Rap is perfect for this expression but with catchy melodies dispersed. About big business practices as I have three biz degrees, MBEI, MBA and BBA. Lots of things. Coming soon. Enjoy, Michael
I was tired of the Nation site and deleted my EW sites but changed heart so now I have two sites I hope to merge, also there is a Myspace Michael Rhoden page. Walls of Rock CD info is on The Elektric Warrior page. I may change the name to Alabaster Radio for Pop Rock and The Elektric Warrior for Fusion, Jazz and Contemporary Classical. Its all marketing so the jury is out. I apologize for the possible confusion. It will work out. I just write too many genres. May have one for film. Thanks All, Mike

Releasing a very nice CD next week on over 40 major sites like iTunes and Amazon. It is a Pop/Rock CD with some progressive music as a tease. The Next CD soon is a Progressive Jazz release with killer grooves. Pass the word on please. It will pave the way for well known international friends to play on new CD's and really upgrade the studio to World Class Pro Tools HD. Thank you very much, Cheers! JMT III
I have been scouring the net for the past five years and after selling nearly all my equipment and buying new, I am ready to get to work, first on my works but for sure others. I am lacking an Apogee ADA 8000, but that will come soon after a client or two for recording. Thanks! MJ
