    Good choices but I would add the Mahler 6th to the list. [​IMG]

    The 6th is OK, but I know others who like it quite a bit more than I do. I don't think it captures what he does with it in live performance.

    For the 6th, I like Yoel Levi's account with your hometown band on Telarc better. I kept hoping for an SACD multichannel release, but apparently that's not in the cards.

    The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Telarc is superb. The Jennifer Higdon works are terrific.

    since getting a phone call last night that Ian MacKaye was dead - then googling the story to find that he wasn't...best bad news ever.

    I heard the new John Fogerty yesterday and it is terrific. Plan to purchase it soon.

    I'm glad I never heard that rumor about Ian McKaye, as I would have been quite devastated. Anyways, I've been listening to a rather strange mix c.d. I got for free with the new Uncut magazine. It's a mix of songs arranged by Paul Weller, and has an eclectic mix. Little Richard, Midlake, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Dantalian's Chariot, Big Youth, Declan O'Rourke, the Kingstonians, Big Bill Broonzy, The Hold Steady, and a song by Paul himself. Honestly the recording quality is pretty crap, but I put it into my laptop and have been playing it by default. I also listened to a bit more of The Jam, but that's typical for me. Top rotation for me typically includes The Jam, Manics, and The Smiths. Finally, I've been making a sort of more current "punk" mix c.d. for a female friend of mine... trying to slowly get her from whatever their name is...Fall out boy... to something less MTV 13yr. old female fan based. I'm really behind on current punk, but I found a few bands to throw on the mix that I've been listening to more and more. A Wilhelm Scream, Dead to Me, Bayside, and No Use for A Name (which is older but I never listened to before) all are on repeat for the past few days. Oh... and my alternate driving personality has been listening to Sufjan Stevens in an attempt to calm down... it's had mixed results, but mostly has worked in avoiding road rage. Also, Annie Clark from St. Vincent is amazing live if anyone has seen the Texan guitar virtuoso, and hot in a quirky way. Back to the punk rock now...

    Lately, I've been in the mood for some of the old standards. I found a station on iTunes (Martini in the Morning) that plays Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc. Since I've started dressing a bit more respectably, the bubblegum pop that is Eurodance just doesn't feel right.

    I'm compelled to play Kanye's album every morning when I wake up (Good Morning... ooo woo ooo woo woo wooo wooooo...). I've been listening to Graduation a lot these days. Also in the last couple of weeks, I've often played the Once soundtrack + Camille (cool french chanteuse) + latest K-Os + Basement Jaxx + the grey album

    I have not been listening to much music recently...

    A couple of songs that I find myself listening a lot to recently are:

    Simon & Garfunkel - Sound of Silence
    Don McLean - American Pie
    Sidney Bechet - Petite fleur

    Otherwise, quite a bit of Aznavour, Reggiani, The Strokes, Coltrane, Elliott Smith, Neutral Milk Hotel and David Bowie.

    It is a tad random...
