Luther Allison - Bad News Is Coming

Going through the entire record collection makes me rediscover some gems I haven't listened to in a while. This must be one of the best blues albums ever recorded.

Lots of hippie stuff, Procol Harum, Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills and Nash. That sort of thing.

To make things even more complicated my collection isn't strictly alphabetically ordered. Tom has his own section. "World music" has another section ordered geographically with Sweden as a starting point. Modern jazz is separated from traditional jazz. My Proper box sets have their own shelf, sorted chronologically (that's why I started with Bessie Smith). Large box set which don't fit in my regular cd shelves are placed here and there.

So I'm expecting a lot of variation...

I've tried different approaches to organising my collection. In some respects it makes sense to have for example a jazz section, but then again there will always be crossover albums or crossover artists. It would not feel good to have various albums by the same artist or band in different sections. UGH! So it works up to a point. Or it seems like a good idea until I actually try it and encounter problems.

I've recently decided to have a jazz section in my singles. We'll see how I feel once I've done it.

Still on Dylan by the way, in the LPs. Next up in my CD collection is Biosphere, 90's ambient music from Norway. I wonder how it will feel to hear that after all these years.

I know. It's hell. "The organization of information". The librarians nightmare. My wife hates my system. Especially the geographic organization of the "world music". She can't understand how South Africa is followed by Iran. I try to tell her that you have to think Sweden, Europe, Turkey, Middle East, North Africa, Central Africa, South Africa and THEN the rest of Asia starting with Iran. She just gives me a dark look. I can't blame her...

Anyway, now have come to a nice combo of Bowie, James Brown, Duke Ellington and traditional Irish music.

Mine seem to be scattered randomly in the basement. Recent listening includes Seasick Steve, Pokey LaFarge, Willie Murphy & John Koerner, Blind Faith. My cds get more play though.
Now Playing, Mount Royal; Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge. We saw them perform last night, same day as the record release. What a couple of great guitarists! (all acoustic no less. The way dog intended guitar to be played!) Eldridge is a master of the form but Lage truly plays on another level. So effortless & fluid. Real stream of conciseness playing. He finds sounds on an acoustic guitar that few are able to & little flourishes that are also real entertaining to watch as well as hear. Don't get me wrong though, there's some real substance there. When called for he gets everything needed out of a note or two to convey deep soul. What a great time experiencing these two interacting on stage in front of a single microphone.

Just read a nice (though perhaps excessively highbrow) review of this...

I'll have to pick up a copy next week. Unless I pre-ordered it and it shows up in my mailbox before then. Who knows?? :lol:

You'll be pleased whenever it is you get it! Hey, it's the New Yawker. Good read though, hard to disagree with anything in it. They really do have an amazing rapport when playing together.

The first time I saw them I thought they might be dating. :lol: The funny thing is that I've seen Julian play duets with other guitar players since, and it's like that with all of them! But I've seen him in a trio and a quartet and it was much more normal, so I guess he can only hypnotize one person at a time.
