    Vampire Weekend, constantly, for the past two days. Absolutely loving this CD.

    Careful there SJ.

    Bet most of your peeps discreetly wander off when you crank that up...

    Funny you say that, because just today, I had it cranking, and the thought ran through my mind that most people just don't get it, and that is fine by me. Miles plays some very personal music, which speaks only to the lucky few.

    We were separated at birth, I am absolutely convinced. I've been listening to Vampire Weekend for the last month or so. VW is the up music, and the new Jack Johnson is the downtime music.

    I believe all of the above have some live shows which can be downloaded for free at tapers.org, but you have to have some skills. (compliments of John R and a few other tapers -- free to download and share, but not for selling)

    Now granted, Black Beauty may be a little on the periphery...but Miles Davis is pretty universal, isn't he? Kind of Blue is loved by everyone.

    And there's a fine new book:

    "It's About That Time: Miles Davis On and Off the Record"
    by Richard Cook

    He's one of the editors of the fine "Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD".

    It's a breakdown of most of the major Miles albums with comments on his personal and professional life at the time of each and how they relate. Odd you should be listening to that period, that's the part I'm reading just now.

    tapers.org rules.

    Also check www.archive.org. That's where I feed my Little Feat addiction.

    Unique Sound, but didn't buy the whole album. My neighbors kids were listening to it in the driveway and I became intrigued.
    I love "The kids Don't Stand a Chance". :clap:

    Old. Awesome.

    Slight edit- "Carnival of Sorts" will always be my favorite REM song.
