I've started reading Willie Nelson's The Tao of Willie which I received for Xmas - a very inspirational tome so far. As is the case whenever I'm reading a book by or about a musician, I have the urge to listen to certain albums as they are mentioned. In this case I'm aching to give Stardust a spin. Being that I only own a vinyl copy this could only mean one thing: it's time to rotate living room albums with basement albums. The two crates upstairs act as a sort of "current listening annex" to the total collection; or do they? What I found was that there were a bunch of Poco records and a copy of Loverboy's Get Lucky. What in the hell is going on here?

Clearly, I had an easy time deciding what to banish.

Here is some of what I brought up:

Bob Dylan ~ Another Side of Bob Dylan

Joni Mitchell ~ Mingus. I don't remember liking this one too much. But it does have Jaco Pastorious, Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock on it.

Ray Charles ~ Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music Volume Two. You know it's a motherfucker.

Music for Flute and Tape. Hunh? On the Nonesuch label from '74. We'll see.

Mahavishnu John McLaughlin - My Goal's Beyond. Yes, apostrophe s. On the Douglas 9 label. Wha? As you can see this and the previous were mined from the aforementioned KPGY.

Marty Robbins ~ I Walk Alone

Lou Rawls ~ Soulin'. Man, I have a surprising number of Lou Rawls albums ...

Mick Ronson ~ Slaughter on 10th Avenue. Yes, I suppose Mick was androgynous, but in a very disturbing way.

Oh yeah - the Willie Nelson albums were all already upstairs in the other crate. Huh.
