What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

So Long So Wrong / Alison Krauss & Union Station
Is a puzzlement, as Yul Brynner's King of Siam was wont to say. What do you do when you find the perfect voice, but have no interest in the material that voice chooses to record? That's the problem I have with Alison Krauss. When she sings It Doesn't Matter on an episode of Buffy, it's a moment of rare beauty among the mayhem and teenaged angst. And her covers of Now That I've Found You, Just When I Needed You Most and Whenever I Call You Friend (all sadly unavailable on the Music Store) have a warmth and a sweetness never imagined by the original artists. But these are rare finds amongst the fiddle & banjo laden performances that fill her albums. What I wouldn't give for a collection with a lot less country and more of that singular voice. So Wrong, indeed. So Long So Wrong
