Friday Random Ten

Joshua Redman "Yesterdays" Timeless Tales (For Changing Times)
Graham Parker "Discovering Japan" Squeezing Out Sparks
Percy Mayfield "Please Send Me Someone to Love" Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues
Radiohead "True Love Waits" I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings
Swales "Who's Dorothea" Pleasureland
Lou Reed "Tell It to Your Heart" Between Thought and Expression
Ben Vaughn "I Dig Your Wig" Mood Swings ('90-'85 & More)
Uncle Tupelo "The Long Cut" 89/92: An Anthology
Richard Buckner "Kingdom" Meadow
Lynn Harrell "Cello Suite No. 3 in C Major, IV. Sarabande" Bach Cello Suites

Helium "Blue Rain Soda" Magic City

When after all the urges, some kind of truth emerges indeed. The Parker and Uncle Tupelo are 2 all-time greats, that's a fine Ben Vaughn, and nothing embarrasses. What more could one randomly want?

Starts of slow with the first pick, but the rest are solid, and with my favorite late GBV song and one of my fave Pave's, plus a fine YLT, so I'm happy, plus Hayden showed up today (but now I'm liking that L. Slim a lot, too, Ahab). Yes, George, that's a great Graham Parker song. Ain't heard it in a long time.

George, did you see Joshua Redman when he played at PSU in '94? Great show. Maybe it was '95, though, after you left.

Marty, I see iTunes picks up your latest listening too. Mine was getting into a rut, so I'm trying to broaden my listening habits.
