Originally released as a feature-length documentary film in 1989, "101" is a quasi-road film/live show that chronicles the staging and execution of a massive Depeche Mode concert at the Pasadena (Calif.) Rose Bowl.
Armed with a self-deprecating sense of humor, Puddle of Mudd was redeemed from being another entry into the crowded post-grunge field with its 2001 debut album, "Come Clean." Sadly, the band ditches the comedy—found on previous single "She Hates Me"—for full-blown despair on its follow-up album, "Life on Display." Too many of the songs follow the same structure, with a sinister guitar intro leading into a midtempo chorus about paranoia, depression and general malaise.
A Jimi Hendrix tribute disc being spearheaded by his half-sister Janie will feature a previously unreleased Stevie Ray Vaughan medley, as well as newly recorded covers from Prince, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins, Eric Clapton, Musiq and several others. Titled "Power of Soul," after Hendrix's song of the same name, the disc will benefit the United Negro College Fund.
