I don't know quite what to think of the mammoth Pink Floyd box set that has come out for the holidays,

http://www.amazon.com/Oh-Way-Box-Set-16/dp/B000X1LH6C/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1195835691&sr=1-6

I like PF as much as the next guy, but there are only 4 or 5 CDs I would really want to have, among them the recent re-release of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn,

Will have to pick up that issue; just recently listened to Theessink.  Will have to play more.

Also been listening to Shaver, who's been played a lot on my Americana music station on cable.

Jacobs:

Great, great article on Theessink.  Loved it and will certainly buy his new cd.  Great to see him recognized in a magazine.  Thanks.

Am listening to the wonderful Maddy Prior "Tapestry of Carols" cassette you made for me and the cd of which I just ordered from amazon.  I already have the Loreena McKennett Christmas cd which you put together on that magical cassette.  I'm amazed this tape hasn't worn out from constant playing.  Exquisite music, indeed.  But you already know that.

Theessink's web site with lyrics to his new CD.  Check out the song called "Katrina."

Quick!  Get over to the classical forum; they are discussing early music there.

I just heard a cut from Gloryland by Anonymous 4 with Darol Anger and Mike Marshall and I was taken with it. It's a very unusual album because their voices don't seem to belong to American roots music but it did sound lovely.  And I'm really tempted to get it.  Really tempted, indeed.

Anon 4 with Anger and Marshall? Do they really know how to get rootsy? I heard their take on Sacred Harp Music, and, to say the least, was underwhelmed.

Jacobs:

It was pretty singing but no Carter Family if you know what I mean.

Been listening to Elana James and must get her new cd.  What a find.  Her version of an unknown Dylan song (unknown to me) One More Night is wonderful.  Haven't heard other cuts but this one is enough to get me going.

Also Last Train Home is a great group.

But Elana James excites me as did Kasey Chambers when I first heard her.

Beautiful and rootsy are not always a good match.

I suppose it is middle age, but I find myself yearning for Dino, Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr. these days.  Seems the Rat Pack never falls out of style.

Part middle age, part the release of George Mitchell's report on steroid abuse in major league baseball, part disgust with the overall greed and lust for power in sports, I'm yearning for a little Simon and Garfunkel.

Yea, Mitchell's report is damning to say the least, and one wondered why Clemens was able to keep going so long.
