This is a very different list from my CD collection, which is much, much more extensive. These are just the CDs I happened to have transferred or cuts I've happened to download.

Fire away.


Labels: ,

WHAT? no Seamus Egan?

And you used to my my hero and the man I wanted to emulate.
Ah, Seamus. Actually, depending on which Seamus you're talking about (there's an East Coast Seamus and a West Coast Seamus) I've got him on the Solas cuts, and he shows up on Alison Brown's records, too.

On my old MP3 player, which conked out, I also had When Juniper Sleeps and The Eighth of January. I haven't gotten round to transferring those over.

Actually, I forgot...I also have Mick O'Brien and Caiomhin O'Raighallaigh's Kiltie Lie Over, one of my favorite recordings ever, as well as a bootleg concert recording of Caiomhin O'Raighallaigh playing solo fiddle in a concert, on my computer. I Haven't been able to figure out how to transfer those over without resynching everything and losing everything I bought from iTunes on my work computer, which I no longer have.
Got Clannad?

If the opportunity ever presents itself for you to attend a Lyle Lovett concert, you might find yourself adding his work to your iPod. The musicianship of his band is astonishing. My brother-in-law, who was in a band for quite some time, disagrees with me in most things but not this.

Lyle Lovett puts on a hell of a show and has some music you might well appreciate.
FYI...I am probably going to be end up being the only one here without an MP3 player.

But if I did, here's who we would have in common (just off the top of my head, of course):

Anoushka Shankar (heard her play with her dad, and with Sting...definitely her father's daughter)
Brad Paisley
Itzhak Perlman
Nickel Creek
Peter Gabriel
Plant & Krauss

...and those we would not:

Ashley MacIsaac
Bobby McFerrin
Bela Fleck
Eric Johnson
Nine Inch Nails
Steve Vai
Seamus Kennedy
Trace Adkins
