Aside from frequent listens to new releases on Mog or Spotify when I’m piddling about the house, the place where I love to treat myself to good tunes is in the car. My car player isn’t the greatest; it’s got good sound but it it just a basic 6-CD changer with no randomizing capability (or, maybe it does, but I’ve never learned it.) Anyway, I like to load up the changer with CDs that work well together.
Today, I drove to Hanscom AFB on a mission to fill the fridge and the pantry, as well as to stock the liquor cabinet. On the drive, I listened to these:
The Decemberists – The King Is Dead –(Last year’s release still resides in the car player. Yes, it’s that good, IMO.)
The Band – The Band (I needed to hear some and it fits right in with the contemporary CDs in rotation. Still hurts a bit when I hear Levon singing.)
I had two others in, but didn’t hear them today, since there’s hardly any skipping of songs.
The Avett Brothers – I And Love And You
Nickel Creek – This Side
I’m never paying for satellite, as long as I have CDs to love.
