    Last album cut by Smokin' Joe Kubek with Bnois King... Fat Man's Shine Parlor

    I loved how these two grand blues and jazz guitarists worked together, all for making the songs stand up, not trying to outplay each other in the process. Joe died with his boots on, about to sing at a North Carolina festival in October of 2015.

    The album title refers to a shoeshine parlor Kubek discovered as a kid in a down-at-heels area of Dallas: it was a joint that more than hinted that certain other activities including gambling, drinking and womanizing might take place there. The lyrics to Done Got Caught are a mildly NSFW hoot. Joe was more than up to par on his guitar in this album and Bnois his usual irrepressible self in the songwriting, vocals and trading guitar licks with Joe.

    Josh Rouse & The Long Vacations: "Oh, look what the sun did!"

    (yeah: it made the sky turn blue! -- at least in the south of Spain)



    Hello lazy morning
    Cloud above forming
    Oh where could the sun be this afternoon
    Oh look what the sun did, it made the sky turn blue
    I don’t mind a Monday, staying at home I ain’t going in today
    Oh where could the sun be this afternoon
    Oh look what the sun did it made the sky turn blue
    Hiding he's always hiding his face and shape
    Hiding the hills are hiding in Southern Spain
    Oh where could the sun be this afternoon
    Look out the window now it’s pouring
    Happiness comes without warning hey hey hey
    Oh where could the sun be this afternoon
    Oh look what the sun did it made the sky turn blue
    And the sun says I need ya too

    I wish. Post Your Last Purchase XXVIII

    Had to send the receiver back and order a new one which should come in tomorrow.

    Instead this weekend I’ve been listening with my headphones and DAC/amp or my Pioneer DAP.

    This CD (J S Bach The Concerts for 3 and 4 Harpsichords) arrived this morning and I am listening to it as I write.

    I love this sort of lively Baroque music - and realise that I had some of these tracks on a LP I bought in Strasbourg, oh, a few decades ago.

    Thank you, @LizKat for the timely recommendation.

    This will be added to my iTunes Library and thence, to my mp3 player.

    I liked that too, had never seen it before and just bumped into it looking for something else Rouse had recorded.

    Loved the bit where he sings "I ain't goin' in today" and the video cuts to him picking up his phone...

    One Way or another would be a personal favourite.

    And now, I am back with Bach, J S Bach, his Toccata in D Minor, to be precise.

    I on the other hand am still hangin' in there with Blondie...

    Heart of Glass
    was the very first one I ever heard of their songs. It's still in some of the playlists on my 2nd gen iPod nanos along with Rip Her to Shreds and a few of their other cynical gems... And now thanks to you I'm immersed in all of Blondie's Parallel Lines album during my dinner prep, having fished the whole thing into Apple Music for the heck of it. I don't mind, it's like getting a dance workout in before dinner. :D

    One of my all time favorite music videos, The Killers' Read My Mind. I could play this a million times. I just love it. It shows (or lol spoofs) the personality of each of the band so well and is just such an upbeat video and so fun to watch from start to end. And that little green guy... :)

    Paganini - Violin Concerto No. 3 in E



    This concerto went unplayed between 1840 and the 1960s when it was rediscovered. Paganini's 1st and 2nd receive the attention, but this concerto is underrated, particularly the first movement.

    Paganini's concerti are like the orchestral equivalent of bel canto opera.

    Today seemed to be dominated by the ladies, (plus John Prine and Eric Church).
