Generik, sorry if we dumped on your god last week.

Free, sorry I wasn't Dusty this morning. And which TKN version?

8:51 AM  
Blogger George said...

Free, you beat me to it. There is the live 801 version (which some of us have only on vinyl). One more reason to try that conversion turntable again.

No need to apologize, George (or anyone else). I didn't claim Clapton *was* god, I just said he's about as close as I'll ever acknowledge. That's still a pretty long way away.

Anyway, everyone has different tastes. I once ate a wombat...

Freealonzo, I share your appreciation of the Dusty in Memphis album. Probably -- no, definitely -- her best ever.

Pavement, 'Home [Live]," Slanted & Enchanted: L&R
The Minders, "Comfortably Tucked Up Inside," Hooray for Tuesday
Bloodstone, "Sadie Mae," Natural High
Fuck, "Motherfuckeroos," Those Are Not My Bongos
Smoke, "I Do," Heaven on a Popsicle Stick
The Wrens, "This Boy is Exhausted," The Meadowlands
Modest Mouse, "March Into the Sea," We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Hot Pants Romance, "Shake," It's a Heatwave
Elliot Smith, "I Better Be Quiet Now," Figure 8
Wilco, "What Light," Sky Blue Sky

Bonus: Wilco, "When You Wake Up Feeling Old," Summerteeth

Songs appealing to my darkness, with a few mixed in to keep me from taking it as far as Elliot. Yeah, I've got that 801 on vinyl, and TNK and Third Uncle were the songs that hooked me so, so long ago, which makes my bonus so apropos.

Everyone brought some goodies today. Very nice to the Deadstring Brothers and Richard Davies tracks pop up. Two underrated (and obscure) acts.

*I'd misspelled underrated on the first go around. Probably didn't require a deletion...
