Friday's Random Ten

I'm recovering slowly from last night's show. Whew! Planning to mainly accomplish jack shit until basketball time. I might be cajoled into a horseback ride in the hills. Casey (the arab stallion) is restless and acting like he wants to stretch out a bit. Down the road, up into the hills, stop for coffee with a neighbor, sounds like a plan. Go Suns!

Until then hit random and we get:

When Ye Go Away - - - Waterboys
Dunsmore Lassies - - - Chieftains (with Ry Cooder)
Twisted - - - Lamberts, Hendricks and Ross
Gimme One Reason - - - Tracy Chapman
Do-Re-Mi - - - Woodie Guthrie
Go and Say Goodbye - - - Buffalo Springfield
Amarillo By Morning - - - Me, on celtic harp, the beautiful Scarlett on violin
Get Up John - - - Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers (live, at the Ryman)
Biko - - - Sweet Honey in the Rock
The Wreck of Ol' 97 - - - Lester Flatt

Bonus (hit random twice, take the top)

Tennessee Waltz - - - Slim Whitman

bonus bonus (only 'cause hitting the one slim outta 37 gigs of tunes is too cool)

Ki Ya Gris-Gris - - - Dr. John

what's on ya'll's playlists?

I was listening to Red, Hot & Blue on my way to work this morning. There is something very special about hearing Shane MacGowan growl out the lyric "a trip to the moon on gossamer wings".

sweet honey is truly an act of genius. harmonic improvisation has to be one of the hardest things to do in music. they make it look effortless. they make it sound sublime. they match exquisitely what me da used to say about how to make jazz come out perfect "from the top of your head and the bottom of your heart at the same time."
