Friday Random Ten

Elvis Costello and the Attraction "Big Boys" (demo) This Year's Model
Richard Hell & the Voidoids "Ignore that Door" Spurts: The Richard Hell Story
Megan Reilly "On a Plane" Loose 4: Start Your Own Country
Jill Barber "Hard Line" Country Girl: New Sounds of the Old West Vol. 5
The Feelies "Decide" Time for a Witness
Dollar Store "In the Gravel Yard" Money Music
John Cale "Paris 1919" Paris 1919
Elvis Costello "Tramp the Dirt Down" Spike
Laurie Anderson "Puppet Motel" Bright Red/Tightrope
Miles Davis "Sanctuary" Bitches Brew

Gillian Welch "Wrecking Ball" Soul Journey

While I would argue that "Paris 1919" is a classic, somehow iTunes claims its genre is "classical." Now, I know Cale studied at conservatory, but, c'mon. Otherwise, a reminder Spike is underrated even if Costello never is, three country women singing purty, something punky, something faux country, some whatever the Feelies are, and then Laurie Anderson into Miles Davis, as all the edges blur.

I loves me some Miles Davis. I consider 1969 a pinnacle year for jazz in America, and Davis was right there.
