Last week's #7 was the worst ever
Well worth $10: April issue of Mojo for the 15-track CD compilation The New Dictionary of Blues and Soul. Great music and I might even read a couple of the articles before I throw the magazine away.
Current favorite beer is Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. Full of flavor without necessarily being as heavy as my usual porter or stout. Just realized the local store of alcohol carried it and decided it was a good night to have a drink. I'll have to check back and see if they'll get the 120 Minute IPA in June. Sounds wicked.
1991: almost forgotten with the DSL blackout. parent post.
There had to have been more, but going by this wiki list of 1991 music, I know I bought these albums/CDs that year:
The Reality of My Surroundings, Fishbone
Why Do Birds Sing?, Violent Femmes
The Ghosts That Haunt Me, Crash Test Dummies
Luck of the Draw, Bonnie Raitt
The Low End Theory, A Tribe Called Quest
And Now, the Legacy Begins, Dream Warriors
Best concert of the year would be Fishbone with Bytches With Problems opening. Packed in near the stage, my glasses were knocked off when I was kicked in the head by a crowdsurfer. I bent down to try and rescue them and three people pulled me up. Probably saved my life.
Second best concert of the year was probably seeing the Violent Femmes do an acoustic show on a river boat in the middle of the Mississippi.
Third best goes to A Tribe Called Quest. I dragged along a friend claiming "this band is going to be huge!" Crowd consisted of the two of us and eight Japanese tourists.
I can't explain it, I've never purchased any music by her, but Amy Grant's Baby, Baby has some weird kryptonitelike powers over me. I could listen to that song all day.
2. I think it's a cookie. Something with "crosses" in the name.
3. B and C. Hmmm.
4. French and Polish. Hmmm
7. Who the hell cares anymore? He's just making this crap up. While I appreciate the effort -- hey, you try doing this every week (to paraphrase Foolio the puppet from last Saturday morning in the slightly different context of an improv live action show [with puppets] for children) -- I'm also not spending much time with it. Names of artists who recorded Hillbilly records.
