A Real Rhapsody playlist blog of questionable quality

Best of Ribaldry & Schmaltz 2006

Once again, here is a retrospective distillation of the twenty finest songs included in playlists here at Ribaldry & Schmaltz over the last year. I spent alot of time spelunking in the Rhapsody Just Added lists, so the playlist mirrors the finer oddity trends from Rhapsody in 2006: old rockabilly, small label soul, random international sounds, the Smithsonian-Folkways catalog, SST Records, the Carinco Ag/Charly Records assault, and some fine local music, among many, many other interesting additions.

Of course, 2006 also saw the digital loss of the Frank Zappa catalog, a tragedy many are still reeling from. We here at R&S also mourn the Rhapsody losses of the Naked Lunch soundtrack, Spanky & Our Gang's Greatest Hits, Sanctuary from the J Geils Band, Connie Francis Sings Jewish Favorites, the early Bee Gees output (especially Cucumber Castle), Coralie Clement's albums, and the odd switching off of ILBT's from the Joe Walsh Anthology. You will be missed, my friends.

May 2007 be as sonically fascinating. A Happy New Year to one and all!
