I listened to that about a week ago for the first time in two years and was stunned/embarassed/something to realize I still knew every word.

Yep. 

Easter brunch discussion of bands that will define the 2000's, led to someone reading the Rolling Stone best 100 albums of the naughts, where Smackie, by virtue of being 5-7 years older than the rest of the crowd has to explain the naughts from the Rolling Stone perspective (my favorite being that Conor Oberst was in Bright Eyes after the "never heard of them" comment).  Then, somewhere in the 70's The Streets come up and I said "oh, great album" and of course they've never heard it, so we put it on and yes, I was quite embarrassed to still know all the words.

"Fit" was first, mixed reviews, so then I said play "Dry your Eyes" totally forgetting that we're out in Oakland because the host is going through a divorce.  The party came to a screeching halt, but you know secretly everybody went home and listened to the rest of that song.

I'll take my bow now.

Fit But You Know It is the obvious starting track but I'd go Could Well Be In next (divorce aside).

Bands that define the 00's and The Streets should never be used in the same sentence.

Ray Barretto- Que Viva la Musica (Fania LP)

I think I am missing only one Barretto Fania classic now (Power).

I guess this is his last record before his band left him and became TIpica 73

A truly gifted young poetess... and her band's not too shabby.  Sorry I missed her when she was in town.

Black Country Communion - 2


man..this is a really nice Led Zeppelin forgery... down to having a Bonham in the band...

although with GLenn Hughes its a little more like Dio than Plant singing..

This album has a lot going for it.. the guys who recorded with Sahm on this are all incredible musicians like Bob Dylan who is on 4-5 tracks and gifted one to Sahm... or Dr John...David Fathead Newman..Flaco Jimenez.... even includes a fairly early cover of Me and Paul with Bob playing harp..


but its that laid back San Antone vibe so its not going to bowl you over either...

I'm not sure I can remember off the top off my head any other album that Bob guested so much on...there's a great picture on the back of the LP of the musicians all laughing it up..evidently a good time was had..
