not everybody listens to music, but for those who do, everybody's tastes are different, curiously so.
the last few days i've been struck by two pieces of music that i cannot get out of my head. i drive a truck for 10 or 12 hours a day, can't get out, can't stop, can't do anything else. so the stuff i think about has a long time to work.
i don't see how these two pieces of music could be so different, and yet both have affected me strongly. so this is what i'm listening to, at the moment. what about you?

Friend here whose father was a trucker in the sixties and 70s- when he came across small town bars and cafes who were getting rid of their juke boxes, he'd buy their boxes of 45s. Kid has thousands of C&W records 1945- 1070. Everything from Hank Williams to the Buckarrooos. He makes me cds of what I want...
The guy I was working with today was listening to Wide Spread Panic. Pretty good and also Bob Weir .... He had a Greatful dead Tattoo as well so I guess it was to be expected. I did just pick up some vinyl at a thrift store any been playing those all week before I go to bed. Joe Cocker and CCR , Bessie Smith and Cream, Crosby Still and Nash plus many others all for a dollar a piece. They play pretty good too. Best score on used records I think I've ever had.
