Yeah I've heard a couple of his songs. I think I have more folk from The Tallest Man on Earth than anyone else. I love his music!

Right now I'm listening to D. Carbone - Apparence. Technotechnotechno.

Steve Reich, Music for 18 Musicians

That’s in my collection – with a homemade cover. I printed the text on foil and put a copper mesh behind the foil.

As a fan of 30 years, I personally feel that almost everything post Emancipation is garbage. Live, he still rips on guitar (check out his solo at 3:27 covering My Guitar Gently Weeps) but seldom show-boats like this on any of his recorded work.

NPG is by far the worst band he’s ever played with. Why he still carries their sorry asses around, I’ll never understand.

In my opinion, some of his better work includes:

This is Not Music, This is a Trip — B side of Alphabet Street 12" single (1st one on this list, crap quality)
Cloreen Bacon Skin — Crystal Ball (fantastic liner notes on this track with the original release)
Animal Kingdom — The Truth (A sweet bonus acoustic album that came with Crystal Ball)
Bob George — Black Album
Erotic City (dance mix) — I got this as a CD single import from France. Set me back $50.

More commercially:

Tambourine — Around the World in a Day
Starfish and Coffee — Sign “O” the Times
Pop Life — 1999


Figure 1: Did I mention that I had a $500.00 private stage-side VIP table when he came to Halifax in 2011?

A radio show on Marel Blues Project, a blues band composed of Marel employees. Mebbe not the Bluesbreakers, but listenable all the same.

Best ever.
I like Khmer, too, but in moderation.
Are you on last.fm Sindre? It seems that we might have some compatibilities. :)

BTW/on-topic: New Massive Attack album has some gems on it.

Mossy & The African Children's Choir - The Light

I love progressive house, I love African choral music, I would naturally love progressive house that samples African choral music.

@Karl, awesome stuff!! I ordered a CD today.

Glad you like. I am not a vinyl fanatic as such but they really do benefit from listening to on vinyl and generally produce very nice packaging. Some Grado PS1000 headphones and [[http://www.olsonkundigarchitects.com/Projects/46/The-Brain|this studio]] to listen to it in would not hurt either...

Nina: …some people listen to music in there, but in my view that's just diluting the experience.

I'm sure you're right in terms of the full experience of sensory deprivation, but there are some pieces of music I would really like to listen to while all my other senses were minimally stimulated. Thomas Tallis' Spem in alium would be top of the list. The depth and complexity of the 40-part polyphony is so demanding and begs to be allowed to overwhelm all other senses: even closing my eyes immediately and completely changes the experience of the music, so I can imagine how doing away with awareness of my chair, etc. would probably intensify it even more.

Ever since I got my [[http://www.sonos.com/|Sonos]] system for my home, the amount of music I listen to has probably exponentially. Highly recommend it.

Currently I am quite fond of Ben Howard, Paper Kites, Oscar Peterson, and Of Monsters and Men.

Today I’m hooked on the Dethalbum. I feel very lucky to live in a time when a cartoon death metal band can release a full-length album and get their marketing people to “leak” it a month before it hits stores.

John’s organum recordings sound fascinating, but I’m on a loud, fast, and distorted binge right now.

Paul, did you see Woody Allen’s Sweet and Lowdown with Sean Penn?

Indeed I did Lore - fun movie. More than any other CD I listen to Golden Bowls by Karma Moffett. It's not really listening, it's more like living to it.

I had the set you are talking about and gave them away - this earlier set is the Berlin Philharmonic playing like Gods and Karajan Zeus-like.

I saw her at the Beacon Theater in NY in the early 90s. The audience was out of control. It was a great show and she did not have any temper tantrums. So glad I went.

all on my "recently added" playlist - this is a good idea btw if you want to go straight to your newest music. Another tip I picked up is to make an On the Go playlist of all the songs you want to delete from the iPod, anyone else find that you hear some song you don't like while you're listening on the road and then can't remember what it is when you get back to your computer? This is an easy way to remember, so you can trash them later.
