Fabulous list. You are totally forgiven for the non-randomness.

Hey, I've got some Tom Waits on my Ten today too-- Springsteen's cover of Jersey Girl.

Hmm-- two from London Calling, Two from A Vision Shared, a classic Pogues track-- pretty good!

I just bought A Vision Shared on cd finally.

Especially loving The Pogues track ... now I need to weed through my Alternative folder to see if I have that one ...

Dale said...

Excellent list on all accounts Bubs. Elvis made my list today too.

Johnny's mentioned A Vision Shared and I've seen it mentioned here and there and everywhere lately. I may have to rebuy it disappeared with all my other cds years ago when I was burgled. If only I'd known you then!

J.G., Tom Waits is the favorite of nearly everyone in this household. I suspect Miz Bubs might answer Bob Dylan. The highlight of our summer last year was seeing his show in Chicago. It was 2.5 hours of brilliance.

Dale, A Vision Shared is a good record. There's only one or maybe two tracks that aren't wonderful, and I know it sounds sacreligious to say this, but I prefer the covers on that record to many of the original Guthrie versions.

Beth, isn't that an amazing song? I cry nearly every time I play it.

Johnny, now that I'm back I have to visit everyone's blogs and see what you've all been up to.

Barbara, I'm always in need of forgiveness. Thank you.
