In listing out the CDs I’ve listened to, that is. Ah well, not sure what I was thinking when I decided to listen to them all in order anyway–oh, wait, yes I do: my wife asked how long I thought it would take, which I then inflated into a challenge, “yaha! Of course I can! Though it take me years, I am possessed of stamina, fortitude, and more good CDs than bad ones….”
There is still plenty of time for the above statement to be disproved.
CD listened to: 401) Jesse Winchester: Love Filling Station; 402) Jesse Winchester: Gentleman of Leisure (these are both new, we were lucky enough to see Jesse perform in Homer, NY at the Center for the Arts. A fine songwriter he is, go hither and find him if you don’t know…); 403) Caitlin Cary: Waltzie; 404) Esquivel: Cabaret Manyana; 405) Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Murder Ballads; 406) Nitzer Ebb: Showtime (the musical equivalent of a mesh muscle shirt); 407) Dirty Three: Ocean Songs; 408) War: The Very Best of: 409) The The: Dusk; 410) Van Morrison: His Band and Street Choir; 411) AC/DC: Back in Black; 412) Lyle Lovett: I Love Everybody (such a great recording); 413) Harry Connick jr: She; 414) Porky Cohen: Rhythm and Bones (my lovely wife turned me on to Porky…); 415) Radio Zumbido: los Ultimos Dias del AM; 416) Sabah Haban Mustapha: Jalan Kopo; 417) Various: The Story of Arabic Song (just got a baglama saz, need to play along with these more…); 418) Johnny Cash: American IV; 419) Johnny Cash: Unchained; 420) Dick Dale: The Best of Dick Dale and his Del-Tones; 421) Richard Thompson: Rumour and Sigh.
