Friday Random Ten

The Scene Is Now "Anthracite" The Oily Years (1983-1993)
Robbie Fulks "In Bristol Town One Bright Day" Couples in Trouble
Nina Simone "Blues for Mama" The Very Best of Nina Simone: Sugar in My Bowl
Galaxie 500 "Melt Away" This Is Our Music
Spearhead "Ganja Babe" Chocolate Supa Highway
Otis Redding "Don't Leave Me This Way" The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968
Neil Young "Sedan Delivery" Live Rust
Sonic Youth "Bull in the Heather" Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star
Miles Davis "All Blues" Kind of Blue
Bobby "Blue" Bland "Farther Up the Road" Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues

Kate Bush "Sat in Your Lap" The Dreaming

Not too shabby--heavy on the blues, fitting for a 4th in the age of Bush, as a too many acre fire blazes mere miles from where I sit. Then there's radical shifts like Galaxie 500 to Spearhead, not so radical shifts like Neil Young and one-time tour mates Sonic Youth bumping shoulders. Classic Miles. Damn catchy Kate to take us out.

Terrific list for me too this week. The Clem Snide, my "artist of the week" over at Tom's, is probably the weakest cut. Just about everything else is five-star material.
