I love Men Without Hats (can lead to skin cancer though). Tell me more about your disc please. I don't pay much attention to labels. Maybe a trade is in order? I have a bootleg concert with pretty clean recording. Or maybe not.

I jammed with:
Joe Strummer-Streetcore. Without this recording my best of 2003 list was completely and inexcusably out of whack.

That little comp I just posted about.

Wheat

Massive Attack-Mezannine-probably spelled incorrectly but it's a great album that I listened to once and for some reason relegated to rack to collect dust.

CRSV9

Hot Hot Heat

Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs

The Vibrators

Gave Super Furry Animals another chance-to Beach Boys-ee for me to really like (or something like that). Couple of cool tracks though.

Franz Fredinand

The Wrens

Siouxsie

Seal

B.A.D.

Ridgeway-but not the new one-still haven't summoned the nerve to plunk down that cash just yet. Imagine that I will at some point.

Bunny Sings The Wailers!! How come I & I never heard of dat one, mon?

I've played a bunch of stuff, but the only new-to-me disk for the week isSubdudes' Miracle Mule, and it's a killer! Glad these boys got back together after several years absence. It'll give ya happy feet.

Waiting in the wings, just in yesterday is a new Sloshcomp that looks way good, and a coupla demos from JDaniel that I'm looking forward to carving out a coupla hours to spin sometime this wk. A tip o' the hat to both you guys.

Thanks for starting it. I gave up and posted some recordings I liked on the Rave Recordings thread, but that's not a play list!

Beethoven, String Quartets, Op. 18. Lindsay Qt. In ASV CD DCS 305.

Beethoven, Symphony No. 6 (Pastorale). Boult, BBC Symphony Orchestra. On IMP BBC SM95 D

Beethoven, Symphonies nos. 6 and 8. Leibowitz, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Chesky CD69

Beethoven, Symphony No. 5. Carlos Kleiber, Wiener Philharmoniker. On DG 447 400-2 The recording actually sounds pretty good on my new speakers.

Beethoven, Symphony No. 5. Leibowitz, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. On Chesky CD17 This is better recorded than the Kleiber and the performance is as good, too.

Kansas - Point of Know Return

Hey Dave with a thread title like that, I expected that you had spun some Transatlantic this week.

I also listened to Point of Know Return this week. Along with Leftovertures (I need to get me some of those remasters).

It's been such a crazy busy week at work that I haven't had a lot of time for music this week. :(

I did manage to fit in a few comps by my RR friends.

Elf Pee's Mole Removal Machine. I am loving this comp. There is some great stuff on here. Most notably, Twothirtyeight and Blue October immediately stood out as highlights. Great, great stuff that needs some more exploration.

Newtrix's POP!. Another great collection. I don't have the track list handy to name my favourites, but there are only one or two tracks on here that didn't tickle my fancy. Otherwise, great work NT.

Mr. Midfi's Besides. Still one of my alltime favourite RR comps. Hubby really enjoys this one too. We're often stealing it out of each other's cars. Maybe I should just make another copy. Hmmmmm. Now there's a good idea. :)

JDaniels Live in the X Lounge. JD and I may disagree on a lot of music. But this one is a winner all 'round. A yummy collection of acoustic goodies.

My own Blue Rodeo collection, Singin' the Blue and Rockin' the Rodeo. I just bought tickets for the August 26 concert here. So, I felt the need to start warming up for it. I used to see them a few times a year for free just as their first album was being released. So, when they gained popularity, I had a hard time actually paying for a ticket. It's been about 16 years since I've seen them live (not counting the three songs they performed at the Rolling Stones SARSfest last summer, where I really didn't see them given that I was about 1.5Km from the stage) and I decided that I was long overdue. $80 a ticket for this show :eek: . They've come a long way, baby.

ForeverA - I wondered of anyone would think the title was associated with the not so famous band Transatlantic. I just pulled it out of my keeschter. I did not listen to either of their 2 albums.

Also, it's "Leftoverture", not "Leftovertures". That toon "What's on my Mind" really is the cats meow. If you like that album you will really enjoy the remaster.

tentoze - Yes, Bunny Wailer sings the Wailers. It's excellent old school Bunny. He sings real old school Wailers toons, 10 songs, if you need a fix of this let me know.

Jim Clark - PM me to discuss a trade, yes, I'm real interested in StreetCore.

skewiff - how is that thin lizzy?

If I buy the remaster and, therefore, own two copies...then will it be Leftovertures? ;)
