    I had an opportunity to meet one of my musical heroes last Monday through my job...That's always a dicey proposition, you never know how it's going to go...this time it was a real blast, a treat, a highlight...

    Anyway, this guy is known as a pretty heavy music geek, so I made him a mix CD of some obscure R&B tracks...he was psyched.

    The track list:

    1. Knockin' At The Wrong Door by The Rollers
    2. Too Far Gone (Alt. Take) by The Four Mints
    3. I'll Take Her by Eddie Floyd
    4. She's A Burgler by Howard Tate
    5. Just Enough To Hurt Me by Astors
    6. After Laughter by Wendy Rine
    7. Rain, Rain, Go Away by Bob Azzam & His Orchestra
    8. When The Lights Are Low by The Paragons
    9. Don't Be Surprised by Lynn Williams
    10. See And Don't See by Marie Queenie Lyons
    11. Let My People Go by Darondo
    12. Inspiration Information by Shuggie Otis
    13. If I Had My Way by Boscoe

    The best tracks I've downloaded from eMusic this month:

    Alemayehu Eshete - Qondjit: Africa's premier funkateer (Fela who?) gets down with his bad self.

    Stacey Kent - You Are There: Unbelievably sad song. So sad, in fact, that Kent has refused to sing this song after recording it. I'd always assumed the person in the song who wasn't there was dead but, looking at the lyrics, there's nothing incompatible with someone who's just buggered off. More to bolster my belief that music can convey as much meaning as lyrics. That's good song writing.

    Ewan MacColl - The Burning of Auchendoun: On this acapella Scottish folk song MacColl demonstrates he has more rock and roll in his left nipple than the likes of Johnny Razorlight demonstrate in their entire careers. He must have had bollocks the size of bowling balls.

    Howard Tate - You Don't Know Anything About Love - probably one of the most underrated soul singers (and there are many underrated soul singers). …
