    Which is bleeding great.
    Curiously, the first time ever I listened to "Dahomey Dance" was by Tom Scott and the LA Express.

    I'm a huge fan of those records in mono, but the original Atlantic CD's are the best sounding digital versions I've heard. I have a few of the original mono records, but have never heard the mono CD box.

    I'll most likely be spinning this one more often this week. In full!!!

    It certainly does dominate the record, but side two is pretty glorious as well. "Aisha" is gorgeous.

    This is another one of those "mystical" songs by Coltrane that I love...

    I have six or seven of his albums plus the Rhino 2CD anthology, but it seems that my Fahey collection is quite measly compared to yours.

    I have not yet explored The Residents’ music outside of a few random tracks here or there.

    I’m sure that I’ll become obsessed once I do.

    I used to listen to the Residents in college to lull me to sleep at night, had crazy dreams later of course !

    I have most of his albums, but I'm missing a couple from the 80's (his least interesting period).

    I only have a couple of their albums.
    I'm not very fond of their vocal work. Instrumental extravaganzas are generally welcomed, but I'm more traditional when it comes to vocals.
    I can enjoy them conceptually, though.

    Another favorite album of mine by any artist. Even the bonus tracks are perfect.

    It seems ironic being that he is not connected with it at all, seemingly. Still though, I feel like his influence
    from the first few albums is draped all over Stranded. It is one of my picks from their catalog as well.

    I can't help getting goosebumps when I listen to "Strange Fruit". Thankfully, Commodore didn't give a damn about the reactions of racists and let her record the song in 1939 (we can't say the same about Columbia).
    Even though my favorite Lady Day is the post-war one, this is a great period in her career.

    ...I’ve been on vacation from the job for a week now, go back Monday (booooo) and I’ve gone through the Oh Sees discography about six times in that week. A killer body of work. Creatively all over the place, but flows nicely one after the other. In any order. One of my favorite bands still killin it. @bzfgt knows ;)


    NP:

    ...makes a nice extended album together (from the same sessions).

    Excellent old school California country music.



    Rockabilly boogie from '49. To me, this is more rock n roll than Bill Haley five years later...
    I think that might be a 16 year old Roy Nichols playing the guitar. He later played with Merle Haggard in the Strangers.

    First Mingus album for Atlantic. Highly recommended. If I weren't typing on a cell phone, I would add more details.
