Just Added Thursday Ode Playlist
The Rhapsody Just Added list brought in a surplus of fascinating stuffs this week, alot of it from TVT Soundtracks and an outfit identified only as "SPECIAL IMPORT SERVICES". The first includes alot of odd movie soundtracks and quite a few TV theme songs not Rhapvailable before. The second brought in a boatload of dark horse rock gems like Suzi Quatro, Mud, and most of the Bonzo Dog Band catalog.
Also of note, the Rhapvailable Supagroup doubled, the early Squeeze catalog was rounded out, and a heap of early Cold Chillin' single reissues came into Rhapsody for our edumacation. Oh, and let's not forget Ronnie Milsap's legendary "Crunk Classics".
Is it a coincidence that this all happens just in time for Thus Spake Drake Lelane's birthday? Who can say. We'll just wish him a most happy one, and offer up this ode for the occasion.

P.S. On closer inspection, those just added records listed with "SPECIAL IMPORT SERVICES" all appear to have the label "RAK Records" printed on the sleeve, so there's a little more education [wikipedia] for sheltered Americans like me.
P.P.S. It pains me to note that "Jailbait" on "Fire For Hire" by Supagroup suffers from some mortal diginoise problems at about 1:40 into that song. Come on, Rhapsody, set that right.
