The Clash "(White Man) in Hammersmith Palais" Clash on Broadway
Louis Armstrong "The Home Fire" What a Wonderful World

Graham Parker & the Rumour "Hold Back the Night" Passion Is No Ordinary Word--The Graham Parker Anthology (1976-1991)

R.E.M. "Sitting Still" Murmur

Fine 1-2 to kick off, lots of good artists, and a Graham Parker I actually have on a 4-song 45 ep and have loved for a long time. And unlike most everyone my age, there's R.E.M., which doesn't leave me dreamy. Listening to it now, it's not so bad, but I still don't understand the fuss.

I'll have to check out Sleater-Kinney, all you kids are listening to it.

George, I was never so wild over REM either, but I did really like Murmur. Most of the rest of their CDs I bought too, but they were always more of a radio band to me.

As for my list this week, every track's a keeper. Yay, iTunes.

Tessitura, Shriekback is one of my favorite bands from that era. This is from a more recent album--they went silent for nearly 10 years and then finally released a couple of albums in the last 3-4 years.
