Today's CDs (6/5)

Bought a few new discs yesterday...

DJ Shadow - The Private Press
Los Lobos - Good Morning Aztlan
Robert Randolph & the Family Band - Live at the Wetlands

Shadow's disc is great, but not as much of a departure from Endtroducing as I would have liked. Los Lobos, as always, has turned out an excpetionally good album, and Randolph's disc is just spectacular.

Excellent choices. I've had No Need for Alarm for at least 7 years, and I never get tired of it.

Do you like this disc? I don't have it but did buy their last one, and it bored me to tears. I really wanted to like it, but they just seemed like a poor carbon copy of the Byrds, the Burritos, etc. Upon listening to it, one of my friends said that these guys are to the Burritos as Oasis is to the Beatles. And, why listen to an imitation when you can hear the real thing? Anyway, is Once We Were Trees any better/different than their debut?

I do like this disc. I have not heard their debut, actually, but here is my review:

You should check out the Country Teasers. Music doesn't get much uglier than this. Imagine a trio of Scottish racists and sexists making country music. It's wonderful.

Also in my Top Ten albums of the 90s. The bonus tracks on there (if they are the songs from the singles released that year) are fantastic.

Surprisingly, I like it even better than the Word's disc and any of the Word shows I've got. Randolph's a great discovery...one of the most exciting guitarists I've heard in a long time.

By the way, are you planning to see Trey? I caught both Vegas shows this past weekend, and they were simply awesome. The first set on the first night was some of the best music I've ever heard the man play...with or without Phish.

I'd probably put them slightly above The Word as well.

I saw Trey in San Francisco and it was amazing. Unbelievable show. The band is so much tighter than the last time I saw them.
