First and last
My “first and last”series, on the first and last purchase of different recorded music formats started this week with the seven inch single. I posted mine here, and rustyfruitjuice did his here, and Martin’s is here. Next week, we’re moving on to the EP – again, contributions welcome – and the following week we’ll do the twelve inch. Rustyfruitjuice tweets here, and Martin tweets here and blogs here.
Hep to the groove
Something for the weekend: Martin plays “The Nearness of You”, ideal for the late night to a lazy morning.
Malcolm X and Lindy Hop: History is Made at Night dancing in the Roseland Ballroom. (It alway struck me that Spike Lee had a better feel for this zoot suit period than for the politics of Black Power – this part of his biopic is wonderful.)
Music Mondays: Over at Poumista, New York mining disaster 1941, for Robin Gibb.
