Best of the Year 2006 AD Sec. 2
wherein we discuss reissues or just old stuff put back together in general:
Tom Waits "Orphans" - so many classics that were previously scattered about or unreleased altogether
Karen Dalton "In My Own Time" - i can't believe this is as good as it was hyped to be, but it is
Bruce Springsteen "Hammersmith Odeon London '75" - the video is great to see too! wool hat era tearing it up
Allen Toussaint "Southern Nights"
Crazy Horse at the Fillmore 1970 - live bands don't sound this good anymore
Eccentric Soul: The Deep City Label - there's a bassline on here that i want to make my ringtone, and i hate ringtones
Wayfaring Strangers: Ladies From the Canyon - almost spooky
Ethiopiques Vol 21: Ethiopia Song Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou - definitely spooky
Andrew Hill Solo box on Mosaic Select - still wading through this greatness
Tortoise "A Lazarus Taxon" - since i rarely pull out the 12"'s this is handy
Cocteau Twins "Lullabies to Violaine" - i loved this stuff when it was coming out (i think i got on board around "from the flagstones" and hopped off around bluebell knoll) and they certainly created a thing unlike anyone else's thing
Broadcast "the Future Crayon" - this band gets better with age and these random tracks play like another great Broadcast record
Miles Davis "Live in Tokyo" - the lineup with Sam Rivers that i didn't think was documented this well...
