I've been trying to be good and not buy to many CD's, it's the lean time of year what with higher power bills and the slow season at work. I ordered the two in the previous post and kept the long list of stuff I want internal, but then Bloodshot Records sent me an email about a garage sale and KPBX had their recordings and video sale and next thing you know there's 14 new to me CD's cluttering up the living room.
It's a broad mix, one of the high lights from the KPBX sale is Women of Istanbul, a collection of female cabaret singer from late 20's to early 40's Turkey. This is one of those albums I probably won't listen to a lot but I love having in my collection because it's so different from any thing else, plus it will be perfect next time I throw a middle eastern potluck.
From Bloodshot Records a got the newest albums from The Bottlerockets and The Meat Purveyors, a sound track and The Legendary Sundowners. The Sundowners, according to the liner notes, held forth in Chicago honky tonks from the late 50s clear up to late 80s and I do like good honky tonk music.
GW wants us to go out and spend our refunds I wonder if Robin will let me blow it all on music?
