* * * Marty Brown, "High and Dry," MCA. Holy KawLiga--honky-tonk lives! This debut album sizzles with such purity, and authenticity, of emotion--from unbridled joy to utter despair--that most of Brown's neo-traditionalist peers sound coldly calculating by comparison. Ignore two cliched ballads on which he drops his eerily Hank-esque wail to sound more "contemporary"--elsewhere Brown proves that a great country singer is, above all, a great blues singer.

Ask a man about his politics, you might learn what his parents were like. Ask about his religion, you'll probably discover what church he grew up in. But if you want to ascertain the very essence of a man--that unique thing that sets him apart--try asking about his hat.

Every time I read anything about the Dodgers trading Eric Gagne I shudder. Does management not realize that trading away this gifted pitcher would be at least as unpopular as trading away Piazza or, for that matter, Pedro Martinez? Wake up, Dodger management, unless you want to make the remaining Dodger fans out there irate. Marty Brown Long Beach While watching a game against the hated San Francisco Giants, which of the following scenarios is scarier for Dodger fans?

The Americana Music Assn.'s annual Grammy eve show at the Troubadour has rapidly turned into a must-see event for roots-music aficionados. This year's concert tonight quickly sold out and took on an added emotional dimension as it was quickly framed as a tribute to the Everly Brothers, particularly Phil Everly, who died on Jan. 3 at 74 .

Re "Dark Portrait of a 'Painter of Light,'" March 5 I have been a Thomas Kinkade dealer for almost 20 years and have had numerous appearances at my galleries by the artist.

He has raised millions of dollars for charities as well. The art business is difficult, like all businesses, and like all small business models, a high percentage do fail.

Even after 43 years as Angel fans, with the last 12 years as season-ticket holders, my wife and I would rather drive 90 miles south to San Diego Padre games than gag as the Big A public address announcer blares out, "Here come your Los Angeles Angels" as the team takes the field.
