Picked up a couple of CD's this past week.  The first is Ry Cooder's My Name is Buddy, a tribute to his fallen cat, which folds out into a lovely illustrated booklet.  He has enlisted the likes of Pete Seeger and Flaco Jimenez in this latest effort.  The other is a new CD by Mavis Staples,  We'll Never Turn Back, produced by Cooder, in which he and his son join her on the album.  Staples' voice is as strong as ever.  The songs hark back to the Civil Rights era with a sense that a certain amount of "redemption" is taking place to today, and that these events need to be brought to the fore once again.

Mavis is a huge favorite of mine and esp. the thought of her teamed with Ry Cooder makes this disc a must-listen.

Mavis Staples still sounds very good,

Her latest CD, We'll Never Turn Back, is excellent, with some beautifully subtle strumming by Ry Cooder behind her.

The clip of I'll Take You There is a wonderful time capsule of the early 70's.

It was fun to watch Chris Norman at a Lithuanian concert ushering in the summer.  Norman seemed to be a good sport, joining in with Lithuanian singers on several songs including "Stumblin' In," as well as singing his classic, "Living Next Door to Alice," from his "Smokie" fame,

Smokie is one of the bands that had managed to crack through the iron curtain, along with Boney M, and receive a grand reception whenever they come to Vilnius, which is quite often.  Never could figure out what the story was behind Alice.  I mean 20 years of living next door to her, and never saying anything to her seems a bit pathetic.

Can't say that The New Pornographers really grabbed me,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9yBnzNitqM&mode=related&search=

but it seems they put on a fun show.  I picked up their Twin Cinema CD.  Drawn to them through Neko Case,

I have her Live from Austin City Limits CD, which is excellent.

This is an interesting article on the Rolling Stones. It asks if Jagger is still capable of strutting around in concert like he used to. It wonders whether their next tour will be their last. It questions if they've been cast aside as new music trends have gained prominence.

And oh yeah; it's from 1981.

from the article... Despite extensive security precautions taken by Rolling Stones Records, a copy of the album (probably a tape) made its way to WNMR, a radio station in Philadelphia, and was broadcast at the beginning of last week.

my how times have changed.

hey, dude. don't worry 'bout bad puns over at the creative writing forum. the entire thread is one big, bad pun.
