I think TG and others are being unfair to John Coan. He has an agenda, he knows what he wants.

Here's John (on the left) at a recent gathering of another social group he's taken-over and now leads:

The Jimmy Reed CD should be decent, what"s all on it?


at least half are country/rnr covers. But I may explore further.

I'd have picked up a lot of these myself, at least for a quick inspection to see what's what.

dolly parton - coat of many colors - Like her but just would never play it.
johnny cash - out among the stars - I'd buy almost anything Cash that I didn't already own.
the best of mountain - This one for sure. I only know a few songs by them.
danny o'keefe - breezy stories (big discovery for me, only knew "Good Time Charlie's got the Blues") - Never.
bobby womack - greatest hits (capitol) - I imagine this one is superb.
mountain - avalanche - This one for sure. I only know a few songs by them.
jerry reed - guitar man (camden) - Camden label is usually second rate material poorly pressed onto vinyl. Don't know how they do with CDs but I'd likely pass.
ella fitzgerald - ella swings lightly - Own some Ella and never really play it. I would have passed.
pointer sisters - break out - A singles band. I'd pass on anything but a Hits CD.
dolly parton - 9 to 5 and odd jobs - Like her but just would never play it.
solomon burke - proud mary - Definitely worth a look.
johnny guitar watson - what the hell is this? - This would almost certainly be picked up and taken home.

I have to agree with the Camden assessment and the Ella one isn't exactly one of her best, but ya never know until you listen to it, I suppose.
Oh boy is it getting rough, when my old world charm isn't quite enough.

Camden is also RCA/BMG's midprice heritage line, annotated, good sound, good pick of artists.

Thrift find of the day:

Roachford - Permanent Shade of Blue (epic, 1994)

Wow! Incredible stuff, nine tracks in, and it is all jaw-droppingly good. Highlight: "Emergency".

Right up there with your John Legend, Raphael Saadiq, D'Angelo, etc.

That's a good CD reissue with some post-LP singles added-on. He was probably down on his luck after being dropped by Atlantic, but his final years with that label hadn't been too successful either. I like Proud Mary a lot.

Will you honestly listen to all that, Googa? The Shakatak, Sailor, 3 Chris Rea, Ray Dee Oh, Alberte albums, all the way through? Serious question. Do you ever listen to things more than once?

You know there's bona fide quality on the list, as for the lesser items, sure, I love variety, especially at 24 pence. If I ever run out of space, I can cull and trade in at 50 pence per disc. Sailor, okay, just for a laugh. Chris Rea, underrated, a bit Dire Straits-like, but cooler, with a keen sense of melody. The Danish stuff you can't really comment on, without having heard it.

Two or three years ago an American member posted that he had decided to stop spending two or three hors a night downloading music to which he would never listen. I was aghast. I could not understand why he was doing such a thing anyway.

All my LPs and CDs receive multiple plays, even just to confirm that I don't get them/still don't like them.

some are growers of course, and some are just pleasant background music. I tend to ration the best stuff, so it doesn't get stale. At any rate, it takes me years to cycle through the whole collection.

How large is your cd collection, roughly? You are missing out on some good pop.
