Friday Random Ten

Parkas "Start Your Own Country" Loose 4: Start Your Own Country
The Clash "London's Burning" Clash on Broadway
T Bone Burnett "Fatally Beautiful" Twenty Twenty: The Essential T Bone Burnett
Glenn Gould "Partitia III in A minor, BWV 827: III, Courante" Gould Plays Bach Partitas Nos. 3 and 4
Jon Rauhouse "Untitled Pedal Steel Guitar Riff" Down to the Promised Land: 5 Years of Bloodshot Records
John Wesley Harding "Here Comes the Groom" Here Comes the Groom
The Mekons "We're Just Outside London" Pussy King of the Pirates
Dr. Lonnie Smith "He's a Mighty Good Leader" Boogaloo to Beck
James White & the Blacks "Contort Yourself" (original version) Rough Trade Shops: Post Punk Vol 1
Charlie Parker "Wonderful Work" Be Bop Revisited

Lucinda Williams "Words Fell" World Without Tears

Compared to the past few weeks, this is a masterpiece. A bunch of quick blasts that couldn't be more different (Gould, Rauhouse, Mekons with Kathy Acker), classic punk and post-punk, two of my faves by T Bone and JW Harding, a weirdo cover of Beck, and I haven't got to Lucinda or Charlie Parker or the Parkas, thank you, Ahab.

My pleasure, George. That is a great song. I didn't notice the Burnett track over at Tom's when I selected tracks to trade or I would have dropped Eno and taken it as my third. As I said over there, marital insomnia has struck me all week and I'm a bit ragged around the edges at this point. Old brains need plenty of rest.

Well done, Marty! No errors that I can detect. (When I saw only three comments I feared for your health. Glad to see you've weathered through.)

Freealonzo, I would buy that Starbucks CD.
