Out To Lunch Friday Playlist

Since nobody around here makes a chile relleno burrito (one of the most sublime experiences of my mortal existence) my local favorite is the chorizo and egg burrito from La Veracruzana. Today out to lunch, no second fiddles. Just su-poib grooves, con queso.

Andorinha - Antonio Carlos Jobim
Samba De Mon Coeur Qui Bat - Coralie Clement
Perfidia - Perez Prado
Mambo Herd - Tito Puente/Woody Herman

Friday Pair Playlist

I may be too lazy to press a few buttons and post all week, but it doesn't mean I don't spend my days hip-deep working in the schmaltz mines. Here are the two shiniest bits extracted this week.

Thursday Negligence Acknowledgment

Greetings, world. The staff here at Ribaldry and Schmaltz is currently preoccupied getting acquainted with the new Built to Spill record, and meeting the Jason Loewenstein 2002 release At Sixes and Sevens, also just added to Rhapsody.

Nothing profound to say about either right now, but we're curious and far from disgusted...

Out To Lunch Friday Playlist

It looks like somebody wants to distract me from all the great albums that have been disappearing from Rhapsody over the last year. This week on the Just Added list were some fan-freakin'-tastic long-missed loud tracks, along with some fine odd hits previously completely absent from Rhapsody.

In Column A we have the DRI album Crossover, with the erstwhile Five Year Plan. And Rembrandt Pussyhorse to help embellish the burgeoning Butthole Surfers offerings in Rhapsody. Then the Melvins output on Boner Records, notably Bullhead and the KISS-style solo releases. I hadn't heard the solo albums before, so it's a treat of a Friday for me.

In column B we have Translator and Lene Lovich in the playlist, but there were also fine albums added from Sleep, Guided By Voices, Luiz Bonfa, and Arthur Lyman. Not to mention the recently-sprouted mountain of Fela Kuti I haven't ventured onto yet.

Happy Friday to one and all.

Out To Lunch Friday Playlist

Five Year Plan - DRI
Two Parter - Butthole Surfers
Skeeter - King Buzzo
If I Had An Exorcism - The Melvins
Bricklebrit - Joe Preston
Everywhere That I'm Not - Translator
Monkey Talk - Lene Lovich

Positively Jerry Thursday

So I posted my fresh catch yesterday including Ramble On Rose, then wandered over to the Rhapsody Just Added list to see Volumes 1 and 2 of the Jerry Garcia and Merle Saunders Live at the Keystone up for grabs now.

Some bits of these albums are rambling behemoths, but I've always been in love with the fragility and sweet bitterness in this version of Positively 4th Street.

All also a propos given the national news this week regarding Jerry's old pink toilet [LA Daily News].

Midweek Fresh Catch Playlist

The recent Minutemen additions to Rhapsody eventually led me to backtrack to Creedence land. Hey Tonight gets my tip top Fresh Catch vote.

And, in another miracle of odd brain chemistry I hear the Monkees playing but my brain fills in the voice of David Gedge every time on Pleasant Valley Sunday. Let's see some more Wedding Present added in 2006, oh Rhapsodish ones.

Fresh Catch Playlist

Hey Tonight - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Pleasant Valley Sunday - The Monkees
Hand Of Fate - Rolling Stones
Ramble On Rose - Grateful Dead
You're Still On My Mind - George Jones

Whipping Flossumentary Playlist

Today, a brief documentary duo of a playlist. The setup: a Whippin' Post from the Frank Zappa album Them Or Us. The story: the exquisite results when a Finnish fan calls out for Whipping Post while the band is ready to play Montana, from Volume 2 of You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore. Bonus Material: any rainy morning goes better with Yo Cats.
