"Oh Shenandoah"

from Charlie Haden’s Rambling Boy

I wanted to do ‘Oh Shenandoah’ because that’s the town I was born in — as a tribute to my mom and dad for giving me all this music,” Haden says. “I don’t really sing this as a singer, because I’m not a singer. But I wanted to do it for them.

One of my favorite KCRW DJ’s stumbled onto the most amazing Bollywood Disco finds. Read Mario Cotto’s full post here. 

I’d picked up the limited edition Asha Bhosle 12″ that was released just before the full length. The A-side is a lovely Brother Cleve edit of  Bollywood superstar Bhosle’s hit “Udi Baba” but it was the weird chuggy groover B-side, “Koi Lutera”  that basically melted my face off…

With a soppy, melty pool off face all over my hands and keyboard I went looking for video on YouTube I came across…this….and then what was left of my face and head just…exploded.

Yup. My head also kind of exploded too. This Curry Western video is pure brilliance. Add this to my Discostan playlist.
