Music Library: J Church, Joe Jackson, Bert Jansch, Jay-Z, Elton John, George Jones

Geo. Jones

J Church - Whorehouse: Songs And Stories (compilation, 1996). A collection of the much-revered punk band. It is pretty good, but I have not yet rushed out to get more of their work.

Joe Jackson - I'm The Man (1979). He is. This rocks.

Bert Jansch - Stepping Stones (with John Renbourn, 1969) and When The Circus Comes To Town (1995). Brit-folk master with his greatest collaborator in the former and keeping his reputation alive in the latter.

Jay-Z - The Black Album (2003). Do I need to write about this?

Elton John - Elton John (1970), Tumbleweed Connection (1970), Madman Across The Water (1971), and Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy (1975). My pal Paul thought I would turn around on Mr. John if I listened to all of these. Sorry, Paul. It's just not my thing.

George Jones - She Thinks I Still Care: The Complete United Artists Recordings, 1962-1964George Jones & Gene Pitney (1965-66)Walk Through This World With Me: The Complete Musicor Recordings, 1965-1971 Part 1, and A Good Year For The Roses: The Complete Musicor Recordings 1965-1971, Part 2. I had just finished working my way through these massive Bear Family sets when Ol' Possum died. I hope he is resting in peace, secure in the knowledge that he was the finest country singer who ever lived.
