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

Silver Jubilee / Riders in the Sky
Silver Jubilee I mentioned Riders in the Sky in my last entry as an object lesson in not judging a book by its cover or being more selective in your prejudices or something. But they're worth a mention for themselves. Riders are talented musicians and very funny besides. And this album marks twenty-five years of performance, with a combination of classic western themes that even I know, like Back in the Saddle Again and Ghost Riders in the Sky; comedy bits like The Salting of the Slug and That's How the Yodel Was Born, a painful ditty I once used to prove to a disbelieving Brit that we Americans do have a sense of humor; and the more recent and popular Woody's Roundup from Toy Story 2. It's a chance to see if you agree with my Dallas friend that cowboy music is a genre all its own, one that's fun to explore.
