Music Library Catch-Up: Andrew Bird, James Blackshaw, Blue Öyster Cult, Bonnie "Prince" Billy

More brief catch-up reviews!

Andrew Bird - Soldier On (2007).  Pretty good EP of outtakes, early takes, retakes, and B-sides.

James Blackshaw - Sunshrine (2005), Lost Prayers And Motionless Dances (2007), Waking Into Sleep - Göteborg 27.05.06 (2007), and The Cloud Of Unknowing (2007).  Four excellent albums of trance-like acoustic music from the current master of trance-like acoustic music.

Blue Öyster Cult - Agents of Fortune (1976), Some Enchanted Evening (1978), and Fire Of Unknown Origin (1981).  Good. Great. Okay with moments of greatness.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Little Lost Blues (2006) and Beware (2009). Compilation and studio album.  As always, great stuff from Will Oldham.
