Both polyfrog and I had the exact same reaction to hearing The Duhks on NPR yesterday. That reaction was
BUY THE CD NOW !!!
I have been making CDs for my car folder this week. So far I've made mix CDs of
Santana (from the 3 CDs by the original band)- I am continually amazed that one of my favorite vocalists (Gregg Rolie) went on to form a band with one of my least favorite vocalists (the egregious Steve Perry) and as far as I know never really sang again. Sad. His voice was just SO smooth. So many folks think that Carlos was the singer, but so much of the band was Gregg's voice and keyboards. Carlos has always said that the core of the band was he and Gregg. Amazing stuff.
Nick Lowe - I bought the box set The Doings, which is missing a few tracks I would have wanted on my mix, but it's still amazing.
PDQ Bach - also from a box set, the problem was getting it down to one CD.
I also bought a larger CD sleeve for the car. It now takes up the entire front seat. Good thing that the Squirrel has to sit in the back.
Oh, and all the new CDs are printed on by my new printer. They look SO cool.
