How about this... for $0.00? Listening to it right now. :)
I actually like this one a little better:
Click for your own copies. Enjoy! :D
Btw guys, thanks for some of the above recommendations - I'm gonna check 'em out! :)
Dang, I'm so sorry! It looks like I've killed another great thread. :o
A little help, maybe?? :)
Only so much I can post regarding "recent purchases" ;)
I need to check out that MoFi Tigerlily. The original is in regular rotation around my place.
Jazz at the Pawn Shop on SACD.
Black Label Society....Order of the black.......Heavy!!!!:)
Since I went on a little buying spree two weeks ago, I still have more purchases to share: :)
Radiohead - In Rainbows
Nina Nastasia - On Leaving
Silversun Pickups - Swoon
Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
Ravel (rang up for $0.99 at my local Fry's), Depeche Mode....and 2 demo SACDs from the Hong Kong High-End Audio-Visual Show
And a very nicely packaged self-titled SACD from Olivia Ong (which I'm trying to figure out how to open w/o tearing up the packaging)....
It's a Blues type of day....got my Music Direct package today:
Joe Beard: For Real (CD)
Albert King: I'll Play the Blues for You (SACD)
Byther Smith: Addressing the Nation with the Blues (SACD)
BluesQuest (various -CD)
Aside from Arcade Fire, lately I've been re-exploring the 80s, the most maligned decade for music by far thanks in part to some really bad new bands (e.g. hair metal) and 1970s musical outfits that tried to adjust but failed miserably, spoiling the decade's reputation for the really innovative artists. A transition time for sure, but many of these acts have held up remarkably well.
Many of these are re-purchases.
First up a purchase of the 2008 Japanese Mini LP remaster of The Smiths classic, Louder than Bombs. Much superior sound when compared to my original Sire pressing.
I've also picked up two classics (Express and Seventh Dream of the Teenage Heaven) by the criminally underrated Love & Rockets. Each of these are remasters (2002) done right, with the original U.K. tracklisting plus a bunch of bonus tracks, including a cover of Pink Floyd's 'Lucifer Sam' which is great. Much better sound than my original Beggars Banquet versions.
Recently I also bought an Echo & the Bunnymen compilation called Ballyhoo. This replaces another classic comp from the 80s called Songs to Learn and Sing. Ballyhoo was released in the mid 1990s...again, the sound is much better than on the otherwise flawless Songs to Learn and Sing.
Next up is Sting's live album, Bring on the Night, that featured his then-new band of extremely talented jazz musicians that was assembled after he disbanded The Police. Sitting at the top of the pop-rock world with The Police in 1983 he had everything to lose from striking out on his own, but his audacity paid off in spades. I was inspired to pick this up after watching the excellent documentary by the same name recently. The documentary illustrates how this guy epitomizes and personifies the term musician, even if he comes off a bit stiff.
Finally, the latest release from Arcade Fire: The Suburbs. A bit plaintive, but anchored by more emotional weight and depth than their previous two efforts, this one takes a little time to fully appreciate but its gonna be a classic I feel.
some nice progressive house.
Yessireeee I real knee slapper
Just picked up Ray Lamontagne's new album along with Black Label Society's new release..
And Tuesday I will pick up the new JJ Grey and Mofro album.
Apocalyptica 7th Symphony.

The Seven Degrees Of Stephen Egerton
Stephen Egerton was the guitarist of one of the most influential pop/punk bands, Descendents. Though Descendents are no longer together, Egerton has assembled an assortment of talented singers from other bands to handle vocals on his solo debut. The list includes: John Speck of The Fags, Jon Snodgrass of Armchair Martian, John Moreland of The Black Gold Band, Tim McIlrath of Rise Against, Chad Price and Scott Reynolds of ALL, Jesse Cole of In Stereo/Le Fang, Dan Adriano of Alkaline Trio, Milo Aukerman of Descendents, Mike Herrera of MxPx, Joey Cape of Lagwagon/Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, Frank Daly of Big Drill Car, Mark Vecchiarelli of Shades Apart, and Abe Brenna of My Name/Wretch Like Me.
If you were ever a fan of Descendents, ALL, Black Flag, etc., you owe it to yourself to check this album out.
