Let's Ride

So I should know more of the dB's music, but for whatever reason this is about the only set of songs I have sat down with. Someday I will do the same with the LPs and 45s upstairs.
This is a collection of demos and what-nots. It's long at 26 tracks, but its okay because my personal favorite is the last one.

I figure we need some comedy up on this here blog. And this is one of the couple of decent comedy records I have found at the library. Not the most cohesive album, but oh well. Mudbone shows up, so it can't be too bad.

The Banjo?

Here is another artist I learned about via an issue of Oxford American. These are solo piano pieces written by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, played by Eugene List. Another chilled disc for y'all.

I had no idea who Ms. Traoré was when I picked it up at the library, just that she was from Mali. I am glad I found it. Another favorite for chill mornings.

No Accommodation

Basically a Fela record here, except his drummer Tony Allen wrote the songs. I guess Fela didn't want much competition though and let Tony have the same layout as the Kuti records. Two songs per album.

Third Time

Har Har the third album from Chicago country darlings Freakwater. We have half and half originals/covers. More to come from this camp in the future.
