Friday Random Ten

Richard Thompson "Meet on the Ledge" Small Town Romance
Alex Chilton "Funky National" 1970
Neko Case "Maybe Saprrow" Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
Glenn Gould "Toccata in C minor, BWV 911" Bach--Toccatas BWV 910-916
M.I.A. "Come Around" Kala
Thelonious Monk "Criss Cross" Ken Burns Jazz: Thelonious Monk
The Replacements "Back to Back" Don't Tell a Soul
Moebius & Roedelius "Emmental" Apropos Cluster
3 Mustaphas 3 "Benga Taxi" Heart of Uncle

Otis Redding "Chained and Bound" The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968

We went over 20,000 cuts in iTunes last week (thanks, Amoeba!) and this list, while not always full of stellar cuts, certainly exhibits the range of what goes on in the collection. And "Maybe Sparrow" has to be one of my favorite songs of the aughts.

Ah, George, now don't go bragging about your Holmesian collection again, especially after Fox Confessor was among the albums lost when I was cut down to an angry inch. But this isn't a bad list (with a couple of Ahab contributions) at all. I know it's not Friday, but it's a holiday weekend, so sorry this is late and lazy.
