so here's some new stuff that i think you should at least check out. okay? okay.
Sean Hayes: Big Black Hole & the Little Baby Star (the title track of his new cd. a little more Jack Johnsony than his other stuff, but fun. esp. for spring. Jack Johnson might be a bad word on here. who knows! who cares!)
Bonnie Raitt: Love Me Like a Man (the best version is on "Road Tested". stanley fish could go to town with this song. anyway, the most exciting thing is that she PLAYS it herself. lots of women can sing. but not lots can play like that. damnation.)
Rory Block: County Farm Blues (a little dark, but awfully nice)
you know something? on who cares, we're frank with each other about what we like and what we don't like. i like that about us. haha. we're not afraid to shoot each other down. for example, a certain blog member suggested edith piaf a while ago and subsequently had to offer a defense for liking it (a rather unsuccessful defense, at that). recently a certain other blog member recommended "the girl in the cafe" to certain ones of us. some certain ones liked it better than some certain other ones. (3 out of 5 people vs. 4 out of 5 people). so yeah. here i am. recommending stuff to you all. we'll see what happens. i'm a toughie. you can shoot straight with me.
ps. monday was Casimir Pulaski Day. how do you like that? and i was even in chicago!
