IN HEAVY ROTATION

Since our little attempt of a month or so ago to get some more music categories failed miserably, and since it would seem users are still reticent to recommend or write a mini review of the music we feed our systems, I thought I might start this thread whereby users could just list titles that seem to keep finding there way onto our players. No need for format or catalog info. No review or critique reqiured, just a short listing.

Obviously this changes from month to month, but what are you currently spinning?

Re: IN HEAVY ROTATION

I've been listening to classical music through my tuner for the majority of my time as of late. A few discs that keep finding their way into my player when I'm not "tuning" are:

Supertramp, Some Things Never Change
Donald Fagan, Morph The Cat
Steve Winwood, About Time
Otis Spann, Good Morning Mr. Blues
Sonny Boy Williamson, Keep It To Ourselves
Nancy Bryan, Lay Me Down
Janis Ian, Breaking Silence

The Supertramp and Winwood discs probably slipped under the radar of otherwise fans. Both, are real keepers for a couple of tracks where they really strut their stuff and show what decades of experience can offer.

Re: IN HEAVY ROTATION

Wow!

Killer lists!

We just had a blissful week away from civilization with only (sadly, no vinyl) the CD player to provide any electronic entertainment.

let's see, we grooved multiple times on...

Donald Fagan: Morph the Cat

Morphine: Cure For Pain and Good

Mazzy Star: So Tonight That I Might See

Cannonball Adderly: Somethin' Else

Joni Mitchell: Court and Spark

Dar Williams: Mortal City and Honesty Room

Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks

The kids played: Jack Johnson's Curious George disc alot, and it wasn't bad. They also spin alot of They Might Be Giants, Green Day (what is it about 6-8 year olds and Green Day?), and plenty of Keith and Mick. We wanted to get a feel for the last ten years or so of Stones music, so we kept Voodoo Lounge, Bridges to Babylon, and Bigger Bang going. I like 'em, but when you've done Let It Bleed, Beggars Banquet, and Exile on Main Street, it's tough to keep it at that level.

No offense to fans, but I'm just not connecting on The Decemberists or Arctic Monkeys.

We've got the new Rhett Miller yet to hear, as well as Willie Nelson's new disc.

Oh, The Eels have a new live set I haven't spun yet, but it's on deck!

So are The Yeah Yeah Yeahs - I bet Stephen Mejias is friends with Karen O.

Next from the shop...k.d. Lang's new disc had some bits played on the 360 Show and sounded good.

I've actually never met her, but we have a few mutual friends. Our bands almost played together on a couple of occasions, but that never worked out. So it goes.

I like what I've heard of the new album, but it strikes me as tame. I'll have to give it more listens.
