Bent Knee: Say So (2016)

First spin of their third studio album. As with the brilliant preceding Shiny Eyed Babies, the stupendous voice of Courtney Swain grabs your attention, but there is a lot going on in these songs beyond that. Of course, more spins are required to properly assess the album.

Prince - Around the World in a Day. Seventh album, released 1985.

Usually gets a bit of a rough critical ride compared to other 80s albums such as 1999, Purple Rain and Sign o' the Times, but this is still one of my favourites from Prince's prolific peak period.

Good choice! Yes, it's not as interesting as Parade or SotT but it still has a couple bona fide pop classics on it -- I'm a fan.

I'm thinking, "Well, that looks and sounds interesting . . . 'Trust The Insect' is an inticing name whether it's the name of the band, or the album, or both."

LOL. Trust The Insect.

Youtubed it only to find they're The Insect Trust. I'm crestfallen.
So start your very own forum "garage band" called "Trust The Insect"... Just watch... a year from now it will be "Piano Zach and Trust The Insect" - A year after that, he leaves the band and becomes "Piano Zach"...A year after that, a press release announces that Piano Zach will now be known as "The Artist Formerly Known as Piano Zach".

That set - The Bootleg Series Vol. 15: Travelin' Thru, 1967–1969 - greatly exceeded my expectations.

"The compilation focuses on recordings Dylan made between October 1967 and May 1970 for his albums John Wesley Harding and Nashville Skyline, and appearances on The Johnny Cash Show and special Earl Scruggs: His Family and Friends."

This YouTube page links to a couple of the tunes which appeared on the Cash show -


and a tune with Earl Scruggs -

This one and Another Self Portrait cover my favorite Dylan period, i.e. the three records after his motorcycle accident and self-imposed break from the scene. John Wesley Harding is my favorite Dylan album, but Nashville Skyline and the bootleg tracks from Self Portrait are close behind.

"Lead Belly: The Smithsonian Folkways Collection, the first career-spanning box set dedicated to the American music icon, is a 5 CD, 140-page, large-format book featuring 5 hours of music with 16 unreleased tracks.

Lead Belly is “the hard name of a harder man,” said Woody Guthrie of his friend and fellow American music icon who was born Huddie Ledbetter (c. 1888–1949). From the swamplands of Louisiana, the prisons of Texas, and the streets of New York City, Lead Belly and his music became cornerstones of American folk music and touchstones of African American cultural legacy."

This 1965 recording traces the evolution of African American folk music from the South.The oral tradition of folk music in the African American community has demonstrated a perseverance through the eras of slavery and segregation while embracing and influencing American popular music through songs, lyrics and performance.
