A few purchases and gifts to catch up with:
Frank Sinatra - "Nature Boy." One of my kids' favorite songs. I almost always stick to the Alex Chilton cover or Nat King Cole original, but I had an extra download from eMusic and thought it would be fun to hear the Chairman's take. Which is half-great and half-overdone.
George Jones - Burn The Honky Tonk Down (1965). Another best-of, although this one opens with the title cut, one of my favorite of his songs that I've never been able to get ahold of in the past. The Meat Puppets do a killer cover of it, but the original is unstoppable.
Griftegård - Psalmbok EP (2007). Swedish doom metal band performing one song named for Charles Taze Russell, the father of the Jehovah's Witness faith, and one for the engraver Paul Gustave Doré.
Ithdabquth Qliphoth - Funeral Spirit Of Holy, Holy And Holy Trance-Formation EP (2009). Black metal from Russia that flirts with ambience before erupting into the pounding stuff and then back to the ambience. Evil!
