    I don't have it yet Dave. Only listened to the three full mp3 songs that have been out there for a few months, but it was released in Europe last year so has gotten some good press. Might make a sojourn to the record store today myself, but lately all I've been spinning is that excellent new Steve Wynn ...tick...tick...tick CD, which was coincidentally released in Europe last year as well, but not until a few weeks ago here.

    That John Fahey CD is pretty cool. Some of us were just talking about him, and a bunch of tangents, and relations, over at Head-Fi last month ... http://www5.head-fi.org/forums/showt...26#post1886126 ... are you a very big fan? That CD you played is actually the only one I have.

    Grabbed Starving Winter Report today and it is very tasty. I'll have it rotation for an extended period.

    I'm a pretty big Fahey fan - but I'm a bigger Leo Kottke fan. Most folks seem to prefer Transfiguration, but I really like I Remember Blind Joe Death better. Don't really know why, but 20 some-odd years had passed and I just liked where Fahey was at that particular point in time. Now the original Blind Joe Death is a masterpiece and is what set the standard for folks like Leo Kottke, Peter Lang (for the short time he was with us) and others to measure themselves against. Just my opinion mind you.

    If you get a chance to check out the John Fahey, Leo Kottke & Peter Lang collaboration, do so - it is knock you on your knees good.

    How old is that Dave? Sounds like it would be kinda nice. What kind of backing?

    Dang, this reminds me that I really need to fill out my collection of that wacky duo. Been a while since they put a new one out, also.

    You said it Davey!

    Austin Sessions was released in 1999 and contains new recordings of his best songs. Great supporting lineup - Jackson Browne, Steve Earle, Matraca Berg, Vince Gill, Marc Cohn, Alison Krauss, Catie Curtis and Mark knopfler. Kris has never sounded better IMO.

    Yup Handsome Family is a must listen around here. Singing Bones was their last release in like 2003 or so, I think. Haven't heard of anything in the works, but I'd think its about time they came out with something new soon.

    I haven't heard anything they've put out that I didn't like, although I did miss the first couple...didn't hear anything prior to Through the Trees. Anyone think any of the earlier ones are must-haves?

    Oh yeah...and now that Twilight is over, I stuck with 'em and have Invisible Hands playing...vinyl only EP.

    Odessa and Milk & Scissors are the earliest Handsome Family releases that I'm aware of. Neither are very highly regarded. They figured out what and who they are with Through the Trees IMO.

    Taking a couple of personal days off...

    ...as all projects are complete and I found myself walking around the office in circles.
    Easing in to the day with Telarc's Weather Report compilation ( God, Omar Hakim can play some drums! ) and on deck are:

    Robert Lockwood's " Delta Crossroads"

    John Coltrane's " Blue Train "

    Dave Brubeck's " Time Out "

    Clapton's " Me and Mr. Johnson "


    Cheers to all!

    it's interesting you would mention that Bernd

    lo and behold the sun came out today ( it's been miserable here for weeks ) so, of course,it is time to put away the cellos, violins, horns, etc. and bring out the GUITARS.
    With car keys in hand I run out into the city to find some R'nR. Hope your enjoying yours.

    Nothing really. I jokingly took issue with grumpy's rudeness and foul language, and he apparently didn't appreciate it so put up the ban and deleted my posts (and of course his too since he was the instigator ). Guess it was only for a week since it seems to be down now. No biggie since I don't really post over there anyway.

    Got Lucinda Williams Austin City Limits playing right now. "Pineola". Hot stuff ...

    Born and raised in Pineola his mama believed in the Pentecost
    She got the preacher to say some words so his soul wouldn't get lost

    Hey JohnMichael,

    A point of clarification, the Telarc release is actually a tribute abulm..."Celebrating the Music of"...kind of deal. Pretty much a who's who; the rogues gallery of bass players includes Victor Bailey, Marcus Miller, Will Lee and John Patitucci.
    Definately a collection of heavyweights with an unpredictable result. The cd has some new interpretations of classic material, and while the production is polished it doesn't come of as poppy or trite. Should please both purists and casual listeners alike. I highly recommend you give it a listen but didn't want you to purchase it under the impression that it was remastered originals or the like.
    Enjoy

    Been spinning some records today...nothing new or that I haven't mentioned here before...

    Hall & Oates: Rock & Soul part 1
    Not much of a fan of their work as the 80s progressed, but Sara Smiles, Rick Girl and She's Gone are fantastic songs.

    The Clash: London Calling
    Simply a classic...no point in saying anything more than if you haven't herard it...what are you waiting for?

    Junior Byles: Chant Down Babylon
    Lee Perry produced reggae. Good groves on a lazy day.

    The Skatallites: Last Train to Skaville
    If you are interested in Jamaican ska, not many better places to start.

    needles about to drop on Erykah Badu: Worldwide Underground...an excellent slice of neo-soul from my favorite modern, female r&b singer...so I gotta run...
