Doug Powell's 1998 album. Released by Not Lame Recordings, 1998. The A&R executive at Elektra who liked Powell's songs then ended up at RCA, for whom Powell recorded his first album, Ballad of the Tin Men.

Ballad of the Tin Men. Doug Powell 7/30/2002. Doug Powell is a protégé of Todd Rundgren, and his fourth solo album, 2002's The Lost Chord, sounds like his version of over-the-top '70s epics like A Wizard, a True Star. Much more ornate than his earlier records, The Lost Chord is so top-heavy with tape effects, excessive instrumentation, and overdubbed vocals that the whole thing threatens to topple at any second. Play album. Let us know what you think of the Last.

Powell then signed with RCA Records and recorded Ballad of the Tin Men. Powell co-produced with engineer Pete Coleman and played all the instruments except drums, strings, and one guitar solo. After sitting on the shelf for a year, the record was bought by Mercury Records. Mercury immediately arranged for Powell to be the opening act for much of Todd Rundgren's Individualist tour. After a hiatus, Powell returned in 2010 with The Apprentice's Sorcerer. The record is a concept album where each song gives a different aspect of the transcendental argument for God's existence while using the terminology of stage magic. The record was another stylistic departure, this time focusing heavily on electronic sounds

A protégé of Todd Rundgren, Doug Powell is a more straightforward musician than his muse, more along the lines of XTC's Andy Partridge. Like Rundgren, Powell had a run of bad luck with record companies early in his career, but it's easier to carve out a place for oneself away from the major labels than it was in the late '60s and early '70s, so Powell has been able to find a ready audience in the American power pop underground. Unfortunately, by the time the album was ready, the A&R executive had jumped ship to Mercury Records, which finally released the finished album in 1996 just as Powell's mentor was fired by an incoming label president, immediately stopping the album in its tracks.

Doug Powell is smart and talented and frustrated and thinks enough to be more than just a bit unhappy, I'd wager. Maybe one or any of those factors leads to the end product, and perhaps his past history in the music business doesn't help matters much either, but from this personal chaos Mr. Powell has indeed given birth to a dancing star. Shear then produced a demo tape that lead to the RCA signing and recording of Ballad of the Tin Men. RCA dropped Powell, but Mercury eventually released the CD (and sent Powell a-touring with Todd Rundgren). Rundgren and Powell forged a friendship, and Rundgren produced the demos for the next album. Mercury dropped Powell, but Not Lame released this material as Curioser and also another set of originals (More).

Just months after Ballad of the Tin Men was released in April 1996, Mercury dropped Powell. The demos for what was to be the second Mercury record were released under the name Curiouser by Not Lame Recordings in 1999. Powell had been in talks with Rundgren to produce the record. The record was another stylistic departure, this time focusing heavily on electronic sounds

Tin Machine is the debut album by Anglo-American hard rock band Tin Machine. It was originally released in May 1989, on the label EMI. The band was the latest venture of David Bowie, inspired by sessions with guitarist Reeves Gabrels. Drummer Hunt Sales and bassist Tony Fox Sales formed the rest of the band, with "fifth member" Kevin Armstrong providing rhythm guitar and Hammond organ.

They will not be notified. This book makes me want to locate and patronize as many independent businesses as I can. To top it off, it is a well documented history of the Boulder area, reminding me of many of the good things I have known over the years. I have to admit I have become somewhat jaded by the ultra-liberal mindset in the community and wanted to distance myself. In this book it is refreshing to see the next generation from the McGuckin/Hight families picking up the baton.
