  1. Disc 1, Matt Wallace's original mix of Don't Tell A Soul:
  2. Cootie Williams in Hi-Fi

    Turns out I have the 1994 BMG reissue, which is not the one to which Dan's referring in his original post. So he's still looking for help on this one.

    PM on the way!
  4. Play ball! 2019 MLB season thread

    Yeah, Otto's been crapping the bed on a semi-regular basis for the past 6-8 weeks. Biggest problem was Paxton going less than 3 innings--well, that and utter failure to do anything against Houston's pen. NY has to win at least *one* game against the Verlander/Cole axis to have any chance of winning the series, and last night seemed like a good shot at it. Astros haven't lost a game with Cole as starter since I don't know when... July or something crazy like that?
  5. Last week’s Night Lights show sampled some of the final editions of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, featuring musicians such as Wynton Marsalis, Mulgrew Miller, Kenny Garrett, Terence Blanchard, and Javon Jackson. It’s now available for online listening: Late Art: Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers In The 1990s
  6. Play ball! 2019 MLB season thread

    Yankees sure blew a great chance last night to come back to NY up 2-0. Now they have to beat Cole in game 3 *and* take the next two to avoid a game 6 and 7 scenario where they’re lined up against Verlander and Cole respectively. Whatever happens from here on out, they need to clean house and overhaul their strength/conditioning/rehab regimen during the offseason. No team suffers such a tidal wave of injuries (the latest being Stanton, yet again, with a right calf strain from running to first base—insert long string of expletives here) as a result of “bad luck.” The Yankees set an MLB record this year for most time spent by players on the IL. Do what the Nats did three years ago and get a new crew and approach in there. Maybe get these guys to do a little less 400-lb-plus bench pressing and a little more yoga.
  7. The original Matt Wallace mix of the Replacements' Don't Tell A Soul is revelatory--I always loved these songs, in spite of the late-80s big-hair makeover they'd been given. And man oh man, do they sound even better as originally intended:
  8. Art Blakey - Centenary of His Birth

    Archived Night Lights show: Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers: Class Of '57 I'll be posting a new show soon devoted to 1980s editions of the Messengers.

    Up—started revisiting this set after pulling it out for the Anita O’Day sides. Such a fantastic collection.
