It's nice to have friends with such wide tastes in music, including the bizarre and perverse.  I'm lying here with a painful sciatica attack and needed some cheering up so thanks to my friend TomD am laughing my head to  Shockheaded Peter, a "junk opera" by the Tiger Lilies.  Absolutely perverse, sadistic and subversive.  My favorite is about Poor Conrad (Suck a Thumb):  Snip, snip, the scissors go, and Conrad cries out -- Oh!  Snip, snip, they go so fast and Conrad's thumbs are off at last."

Another favorite cautionary fable is about poor Harriet who loved matches all too well.  I think my parents should have taught me about the tailor and his cure for thumb sucking and it might have cured me.  Or not!

Also playing Gyorgy Ligeti's Le Grand Macabre; next up Der Vampyre.  I do have some strange friends with some wonderfully off-the-wall tastes.

I just preordered Emmylou's new set (4 cds and a dvd) for $60!  And I think twice about paying for an opera recording but obviously not  for Emmylou.  Such is my devotion.  (Considering I just spent nearly $1000 for opera tickets, I guess this is peanuts.  But Emmylou is Emmylou and what more can be said about this divine artist.

The joy of lps was and is the cover art and notes.  You could actually read the notes without a magnifying glass.  In multiple lps (boxed sets), you got a full-sized libretto or booklet with notes and pictures.  Believe it or not I'm buying my long-lost boxed sets for the art work and booklets which cds cannot duplicate.  Other people on another forum (opera) don't think I'm crazy.  The remastered works on cds frequently don't include the libretto or liner notes; you have to download them.  I'd sooner track down the original lp and buy it. 

And cd jewel cases fall apart before you can even open them.  They are a disgrace.  Lp covers could last for ages with care.  I have some that are over thirty years old (and more) and they are still with me.

Another HUGE vote for Gotan Project. Santa Maria is incredle...likewise the entirely of Lunatico.


Lulu--gotta say in all honesty that while I am great that Shockhead Peter is giving you joy and relief, sounds like one I can easily give a pass to.

Sigh!

I  bitched and moaned when Comcast took away the Americana Music Choice channel wherein I discovered Kasey and Stacey Earle and all the great singer/songwriters, roots music, etc.  Well, Comcast brought it back; unfortunately, they took away my beloved Opera channel (of which I cannot live without).  They have several rock channels, hip hop, rap, latina, several country channels and they can't have room for an  opera channel.  This is a continuation of the  dumbing  down of America.  Just look at what has been done with PBS: doo wop all the time (with continual begathons).  Here she comes, jacobs, Rosie Flores!  Should I have to choose between Rosie Flores and Bidu Sayao?  I don't think so.  Has Rosie recorded anything lately?

I just received my Priscilla Herdman cd.  Will report on it shortly.  Artie Traum and Bruce "Utah" Phillips are among the  backup artists.   Right now, Ricky Scaggs and Bruce Hornsby from their new cd.  Great channel.  Already played were Stacey Earle and Nanci Griffith.  Am waiting for the Emmylou set (4 cds and a dvd).

Hope all is well!

Have you heard of Kendal Carson?

Heard Tim and Mollie O'Brien.  Really must get one of their albums together.
