Friday Random Ten

Yam "Bad as a Bee" More Iowa Less Worcester
Guster "Empire State" Ganging Up on the Sun
Mick Moloney "Reels: Ricky White's Face/The Top of the Stairs" Strings Attached
Peter Gabriel "Blood of Eden" Us
Fred Astaire "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" Steppin' Out: Astaire Sings
Julieta Venegas "Casa Abandonada" KCRW Sounds Eclectic Too
Dizzy Gillespie "One Bass Hit, No. 2" Ken Burns Jazz: Dizzy Gillespie
Johnny Cash "Rowboat" Unearthed V: Best of Cash
Nick Lowe "Marie Provost" Jesus of Cool
Tift Merritt "Bramble Rose" Bramble Rose

Brian Eno "St. Elmo's Fire" Another Green World

All over and much much good, if mostly old stuff good, from Astaire to Lowe to Eno. And that opening track is the second digitized song I've finally got from the band I was in a few lives ago (key vocal line "I want the other rice pilaf!"). Otherwise, I have said how Another Green World is the first CD I play every time I've had to re-set up my stereo, no?
