All The Sounds Of The Earth Are Like Music


It's going to take me a day or two to put some finishing touches on my next links post. Until then, here's what's happenin' in my headphones:

"What You Don't Want Me To Be"---Lee Moses
There's a relatively good chance that many of you have never heard of Lee Moses, and will make the terrible mistake of passing by the opportunity to download this song. While not exactly a household name, Lee's work has rendered much praise and recognition from soul aficionados worldwide (see O-Dub, for example). The LP that this track comes from (Time and Place) is one of those rare musical offerings that can be thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. It wasn't easy to make a single selection, but this song is gut-wrenching soul music at its very finest. Trust me...you'll be able to feel this one in your spleen.

"Practice What You Preach"---Poets Of Rhythm
Switchin' moods quicker than a manic-depressive crack fiend, I now bring you an uptempo groove that features some truly funktastic breaks. Come to think of it, this track could be a stunningly appropriate theme song for the GOP...if only the Republicans had more soul...Check out The Poets' discography here.

"Hold Mines"---Showbiz and AG
I don't think I'll ever tire of listening to the beat on this track. I'm going to be a little bit biased (as usual), and say that no self-respecting hip-hop fan should be unaware of this joint. I lost my copy of Full Scale several years ago to one of my shady friends who never returns stuff. I finally copped this track again some time last year, courtesy of the almighty Havas.

"It Was All A Dream (Kid Jerzee Mix)" ---Jay-Z/ Notorious B.I.G.
I wasn't in the mood for a Black Album remix today, but I said I'd be hosting Hov joints until Kingdom Come, and I'm one stubborn son-of-a bitch (sorry Mom). This is a perfectly nice blend---cop it.

For those of you who are still searching for a preview of what Kingdom Come has to offer, download "Beach Chair" at Notes From A Different Kitchen and "Trouble" via The Scattermish Bloooog.

Back in a blink with your goddamn links...

Love the Lee Moses track. Never heard of him before, but he's great.

Ouch, losing Full Scale? I hope it wasn't vinyl.

S/he shall be beheaded!!! Off to the guillotine!!!

What is it with Showbiz & AG records getting stolen? Someone snatched my copy of Runaway Slave back in college and it crushed me.

JJ---We apparently share a mutual love of the Lee. Cool.

Boogs---vinyl, of course. I have some crappy CDs that keep resurfacing, but some of my best vinyl has been confiscated over the years. At one place where I lived, my landlord's son stole my records. Oddly, one of the things he copped was a Beach Boys record that wasn't even mine.

Flood---I'm planning to go back and spend a little more time, but nice blog...I think that stealing Show & AG records should at least be a felony. Apparently, it's somewhat of an epidemic ;)

Your article is extremely impressive. I never considered that it was feasible to
accomplish something like that until after I looked over your post .
