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

The Wide World Over - A 40 Year Celebration / The Chieftains
With St. Patrick's Day and the search for green beer just a day away, my first thought was to highlight Irish Drinking Songs, a collection by The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners and The Irish Rovers of Unicorn fame. But then I came across The Wide World Over. And that reminded me of Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick's unimaginably beautiful and unimaginably dull version of a novel by William Makepeace Thackeray. Which is relevant only because that was the first time I heard The Chieftains. Later on I had a couple of their records of traditional Irish music in my collection, back when I had a record collection. And now I can go back and recreate the less embarrassing parts of that collection without all that bulky vinyl. Including this album of collaborations with Irish performers like Sinéad O'Connor, The Corrs, Joni Mitchell and Ziggy Marley. (Ziggy Marley is Irish? Who knew?)

Or better yet, enjoy them uncombined. With or without green beer.
