Joan Jett - I Love Rock n Roll

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3T_xeoGES8

This is one of those songs that needs a subwoofer to sound good. That kick drum has some really nice deep bass that you can feel as well as hear.

eels

Watched E on "From the Basement" but they used a stupid "beep" whenever he sang "It's a mother@#%*!*", so I had to dig out the CD to listen to it properly.

Jesca Hoop - The Complete Kismet Acoustic.

jesca

I went to see her at the Borderline a few months ago and she was great.

Then, signed up to support the release of this new acoustic version of the 2010 album, via a site called Pledge Music (supports artists to raise money as they develop their album/tour etc)

http://www.pledgemusic.com/

Yesterday I got my own signed copy with a little signed note inside to say thanks from Jesca herself.

Most importantly, the album is really excellent and superb sound quality - played it three times in a row.

Looks like amazon haven't even got their copies yet, but worth buying when you can. preview tracks can be heard...

Aja by Steely Dan - musical perfection from beginning to end and still sounds as fresh as it did on release (1977 - man alive that makes me feel old!!!).
