oSo in my boredom Halloween afternoon I was on You Tube looking for stuff and I was
looking up John Cooper Clarke and maybe I could find the title to a song I heard 40yrs
ago by him (still looking) but in the meantime there is this video of John Cooper Clarke
doing a very popular thing on "amoeba.com" about "What's in my bag" where musicians
walk into a record store and buy a bunch of stuff and then share with the viewer what
they bought and why. I could have been on that show as I brought many bags of records
home over a 30yr period and would love to tell you why I bought every one. The "Whats
in my bag" has a whole bunch videos by artist you know and what they bought from the
record store. So here are few "What's in my Bag" to enjoy.

So Leon Russell kicked the bucket. I have 6 of his Lp's on vinyl and dug them
out and played them all twice. I got Leon Russell songs rattling around my brain.
I don't know about your radio station in the early 70's playing a lot of Leon Russell
songs. A friend of mine turned me on to Leon Russell by playing his records and
never thought to ask where he heard him first. No matter as I went and bought them
all at the time. Leon Russell did fade away...better esplanation...his music got piled
over by a lot of other music...like about 40yrs worth. So if you don't have any Leon Russell
LP's/CD's...there is a greatest hits (who had no hits) of Leon Russell CD completely
free of the horrible Shelter Records vinyl surface noise. So I found Leon Russell doing
"My Funny Valentine" which is a jazz standard done by many Leon does a good job
with it as well. This video has a lot of great pictures of Leon Russell so enjoy.

So another find from the Comcast "Music Choice Channel 945" that has offered up
plenty of new jazz tunes for me to like. So I love Gypsy Jazz a lot. Django Rheinhart
is a guitar hero to me. This rhythm is like my "core speed" and respond so easily to it.
All this gypsy jazz on guitars requires one hell of a "strummer" or more strummers to
make the "sound". So another "name" to add to the list of great gypsy jazz guitar players
is Hank Marvin. He has a lot on YouTube if you want to listen to him more. So I like this
Hank Marvin "Noto Swing" a lot.

Well this has been my definitive Christmas song since I first heard it on a rather
obscure Mile Davis LP not on Columbia Records. "Blue Xmas" is a great "Xmas Song".
Very few Christmas's as an adult turn out like you want.

Nice ambience. Night music definitely.

Just heard it on radio on our way in on the highway.

I'm sure if this tune came on the radio on your drive you would want to post-it...tuu.
Dr Alex Patterson is The Orb...one of the first guys to go all "electronics" with no band.

"Sounds from the Ground" is a new group/band/artist for me and I like everything I've
heard so far and more to explore. So "Drugstore" is the first tune I heard and liked it.
Looking for another tune by them and I found one real easy. "Sounds from the Ground"
makes music I like.

OK some more electronica for you. This came out in 2003 and I think I got the tune
on a Musique Electrique radio show back in 2008 I have on DVD. So its been 10 years
since I heard it last and the Comcast MC ch41 has played it 3 times in one week to
where its rattling around in my head. Air "Playground Love".

Thanks for the African music Uke. So I've been discovering new artists in the electronic
music today thanks to Comcast ch 941. I was just thinking I haven't turned on my stereo
for over a week which means no KNKX or jazz. I can get hooked on a steady flow of the newest
electronica. If I was still collecting records/CD's I might want to add some "Air" to my collection.
They got about 4-5 tunes out there that attract me. The latest one I like may take a few listenings
before its "in your head". And once its in your head... Next is a tune I heard for the first time
just tonight but its an oldie in electronic music years by Alex Gopher and "Ralph and Kathy".

So a song/tune/track by "Faithless" was heard by me on this date. I sort of got
caught on the last 2mins of this track "Giving myself away". This is unusual rap
music but I have liked some over the years. Then to add another Faithless tune that
first got heard in a movie soundtrack that is really worth hearing called "Addictive".
I know something about addictive....music.

Beautiful Lou Reed number covered by the Black Crowes, off their Cabin Fever-DVD, "Oh Sweet Nuthin'"

Some sweet, sweet blues. Part of the movie sound track
