Have just listened to Comus - First Utterance. I get the feeling it's being hyped quite a bit lately, a friend recommended it, and it sure is great.

Always listen to Nina. Love the Nina.

I've been spinning Lee Hazlewood's Requiem of an Almost Lady. I started on Cowboy in Sweden but Requiem is very good if you like that sort of thing.

As Hiroshige points out, Dusty Groove is a great source, and I bet they still have copies.

That Amy Winehouse is really nice. I'd like to know more about how her arrangements come together.

@russelm:
Huh? Not gamelan? But that's just the most common English transliteration, and so other spellings may be acceptable (like Gayageum or Kayagum, depending on whether you use the new or old transliteration of Korean).

Ah - gamalan is how it's spelled in Bahasa Jawa.

Golly. Prince's house. Untoppable.

The best I can do is the time I helped Dave Van Ronk polish off a fifth of Jack Daniels backstage at a concert at Case Western Reserve University.
How the man could still make music after what we consumed was truly astounding. Played great, too.

I've been listening to:

Blues: Tedeschi-Trucks Band (As a slide guitar player, Derek Trucks has no peer. The man can raise the dead. His solos have, at times, brought me to tears.) As a vocalist, Derek's wife Susan Tedeschi is a cross between Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin and an accomplished blues picker on guitar to boot.

Theatre: A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd - Stephen Sondheim, music and lyrics. (Both librettos by Hugh Wheeler who, you can be sure, played a big part in supplying, uncredited, lyric ideas and song titles.) And with orchestrations by genius Jonathan Tunick - far and away the greatest orchestrator to ever work on Broadway.
(My parents started taking me to Broadway shows from the age of eight, but even still, this stuff is definitely 'acquired taste'. But what a wonderful acquisition it's been. I can't live without listening to Night Music or Sweeney at least a couple of times a year. For the uninitiated, there's Tim Burton's treatment of Sweeney as a movie with Johnny Depp, just a few years back, where one can see a terrific movie and get the characters and story line so essential to appreciating the full theatre scores. Moreso than any other theatrical songwriter I can think of, Sondheim's music and lyrics only fully come to life when you understand the larger narrative within which the songs function. Few people know that the lyric to 'Send In The Clowns' isn't just some loose theatrical metaphors pieced together - they are very specific to a character in a very specific situation within a larger narrative.)

Joni Mitchell: Joni's 'jazz period' which to me, means everything she did that had Jaco Pastorius playing fretless electric bass behind her. The studio albums 'Hejira', (Jaco plays on four of the tracks), 'Mingus', 'Don Juan's Reckless Daughter'. Also the live concert recording 'Shadows and Light', where the band includes Randy Brecker on sax, Pat Metheny on electric guitar, keyboardist Lyle May, along with Jaco on bass.

Also, my son's been playing a lot of Irish folk music around the house lately - from Pandora via iPhone piped to speakers via bluetooth. Quite infectious.

Fontplayer,
thanks to the iTunes shuffle I had this amusing playlist some weeks ago, the song names in a row almost make sense:

A Touch Of Henry Moore (The Nits)
Writing To Reach You (Travis)
Rainbow Flows (Husky Rescue)
Carry Me (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)
Where The Wild Roses Grow (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)
Smile Like You Mean It (The Killers)
Blame It On Me (Barenaked Ladies)
What You Meant (Franz Ferdinand)
Mercy In You (Depeche Mode)
Unconditional (The Bravery)
The Seething Rain Weeps For You (Mew)
Starz In Their Eyes (Just Jack)
Coming Home (The Crash)
Aerial (Kate Bush)
That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore (The Smiths)
Dress Up In You (Belle & Sebastian)
Sunday (The Day Before My Birthday) (Moby)
Now My Heart Is Full (Morrissey)

Given my question, I thought I should include, for the record, some information I have discovered through my extensive web searches.

A Finnish band, Raggars, recorded "Ei Oo Souli", which is a cover of a song whose English title is "You Don't Own Me"... but it isn't the one written by Madara and White that Lesley Gore recorded. Instead, it is a different song that the musical group Status Quo recorded.

The "Major-General's Song" from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance", for the first time ever. Of course, that means I had no blimmin idea that Tom Lehrer's "The Elements" stemmed from this.

For Quincunx: The McGarrigle sisters!

I first heard about them through Linda Ronstadt covering some of their songs... Their albums are pretty hard to find in record stores these days... Maybe I should try online. :-)

And, of course, I bought the EP in FLAC format because uncompressed audio is always best for the true love of music.

I experienced sensory deprivation once, when I had my tonsils taken out. The anaesthetic blocked all sensory inputs, so I was not in pain from the operation, but I was still able to consciously think.

As for the music I listen to,

There's pop music... ABBA, Carly Simon, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66, Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield, Al Hirt, Sandie Shaw, Mary Hopkin, Lesley Gore, Brenda Lee, The Beach Boys

Easy listening... Percy Faith, Bert Kaempfert, Paul Mauriat, James Last, Frank Chacksfield, Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland, Felix Slatkin, Walter Wanderley, Horst Jankowski, Fausto Papetti, Geoff Love, Billy May, Enoch Light, Tony Mottola, Kiri te Kanawa, Linda Ronstadt

Jazz... Dave Brubeck, Lionel Hampton

Folk... Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, The Seekers, Celtic Woman, Harry Belafonte, Neil Diamond, Don Messer and his Islanders, The New Christy Minstrels

Big Band

Broadway (and also West End)... Elaine Page, Sarah Brightman

Soundtracks... Star Wars, Superman, Flashdance, Silent Running

Electronic... Gershon Kingsley, Hot Butter

Other... Leroy Anderson, Olivia Newton-John, Animusic, Nana Mouskouri (her early Hadjidakis material more than her later pop phase), Mason Williams, Mike Oldfield

Recently, I've been rediscovering a lot of forgotten minor one-hit-wonders in rock and roll, like the Murmaids, Merrilee Rush, Minnie Ripperton, Patience and Prudence, and some rather more successful, like Vanity Fare, Ian and Sylvia, The Three Degrees, Susan Jacks, and European artists, like Caterina Valente, Dalida, Vicky Leandros, Jeanette, France Gall, Laila Kinnunen, Pirkko Mannola, Brita Koivunen...

This is just a sampling, but I'm sure it's enough to convince many that my musical taste is execrable...

Sometimes I listen to the radio or http://3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/ which is great.
But when I'm really at it, working in a flow, only Michael Nyman cuts it.
The Kiss, The Claim, Gattaca are a few of his albums I like a lot.
Most ppl know him from the music for the movie 'The Piano' and a few Greenaway movies.

I can listen to almost anything when I am lettering or designing logos, but when I am doing actual calligraphy I need something with a hypnotic groove. Last night I just could NOT get into a project so I set the alarm for 5 AM and turned on entranced.fm on the itunes radio stream. With the right beat I can get into the flow instantly instead of banging my head against the wall.

My main playlist right now is Bombay Dub Orchestra, Gotan Project (nuevo tango),Beyman Brothers and everything and anything by Leonard Cohen (I saw him in concert last month and it was the most amazing stage performance by a musician I've seen in my life.) So "I'm Your Man" is definitely on my list. Even though they are ancient, I still find that Pat Metheni's OffRamp, Brian Eno's Thursday Afternoon or The Pearl and Keith Jarrett's Koln concert get me into a great creative space.
