OK: Quick recap thus far of what I've bought, borrowed, found, or otherwise sampled:
Elvis: no thanx. Awesome voice, but too gospel for me to stay awake. wazzup with the Jesus-theme?
Beach Boys: not feeling it. Could be memories of my youth, spinning my folks' vinyl.
Gene Autry: another vinyl treat from my folks' stacks. Again, not feeling it. It's hard watching your childhood favorites fade like that.
George Strait: *sigh* George it doesn't snow in Texas, stop making like it does.
Canadian Brass: Only worth it for the 12 days of Christmas, which always makes me smile.
Sheryl Crow: She writes a good tune, but her voice is so thin and reedy. May listen again, for the (Memphis) horns.
Annie Lennox: Will listen again.
Brian Setzer Orchestra: The one that caught my ears was Stray Cat Strut, with different words. Not a good sign. Energetic, though - will listen again.
Diana Krall: Mama told me if I didn't have nothing nice to say, to not say nothing. Will fap again, though.
Aimee Mann: Will use to get my son sleeping on Christmas eve. Actually, her cover of "You're a Mean one, Mr. Grinch" is charming. The rest: not recommended if you're using heavy machinery.
James Taylor: solid.
Dale Watson: waiting on Amazon to hurry the hell up.
