    Speaking of EC, have you heard his (relatively) new ablum, his collaboration with Allen Toussaint, River in Reverse? It’s quite good.

    Since I’m pretty new here, I’m going to ask a dumb question: what is the random ten? Is it just ten songs you happen to like right now? Maybe it’s the first ten songs pulled at random from a playlist? Song suggestions people e-mail to you? Not that it matters I guess, I’m just curious.

    Set your music playlist, mp3 player, whatever to “random” and type in the first ten songs that come up. You should join in!

    Well, that depends on your moral position regarding file sharing. I happen to have a copy. I might be able to hook you up.
