|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).
|Have some music to recommend? I can always use a few pointers. Use the comments link at the bottom of the page.

|Anthology / Kenny Rogers & The First Edition
|Kenny Rogers, he's number three. In my last installment I wondered who'd be the next performer to jump on the old standards bandwagon. But it wasn't Boy George; it was Kenny Rogers, with an album of (and called) Love Songs. Which shouldn't be much of a surprise; I mean he wasn't always singing those maudlin country songs about the faithless Lucille, the even more reprehensible Ruby or that philosophical card player. No, once upon a time he was competition for Strawberry Alarm Clock, with his mildly psychedelic Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In). Which might make one wonder if it's the drugs in the 60s that necessitated the move to Country in the 70s. Brain damage'll do that, I hear.
