Music Library FINAL Catch-Up: Es, Fs, and Gs

Keepin' on truckin', minimal-style.

Dave Edmunds - Get It (1977) and Tracks On Wax 4 (1978). Yeah, this is great stuff.

Eleventh Dream Day - Lived To Tell (1991). Much love for this band, written about elsewhere on this blog.

Endless Boogie - Long Island (2013). I picked this up a long time ago and just now am getting around to mentioning it. But it's great stuff, in keeping with the other Endless Boogie albums.

Exuma - Exuma II (1970). Really, really good. A worthy successor to the first Exuma album.

Tav Falco - Sugarditch Revisited (1985) and Deep In The Shadows (1994). Much love for Mr. Falco, a true original.

The Firesign Theatre - The Giant Rat Of Sumatra (1974) and In The Next World, You're On Your Own (1975). Mostly harmless, sadly.

The Flamin' Groovies - Shake Some Action (1976), Now (1978), and Jumpin' In The Night (1979). Why have I never picked these up until now? Amazingly great.

Eleanor Friedberger - Personal Record (2013). Continuing her evolution into a pop star circa 1977-88-99 or something like that.

Max Frost And The Troopers - Shape Of Things To Come (1968). Very enjoyable and coherent, especially considering that this wasn't a real band, but a collection of studio guys cashing in on the psych-garage fad.

Fucked Up - Glass Boys (Deluxe Version) (2014) and Year Of The Dragon (2014). I always think the most recent album is one of the best, and weirdly, I'm always right.

Game Theory - Blaze Of Glory (1982) and Distortion EP (1984). RIP, Mr. Miller.

Gene The Southern Child - Southern Meridian (2014). Free offering from [adult swim]. It's pretty good. Might even be priced a little low.

Allen Ginsberg - First Blues (1975). The sound of a genius fucking around.

Jay Gonzalez - Mess of Happiness (2012). Heavily power-poppy SoCal Laurel Canyon sound from the heavily talented Drive By Truckers guitarist.

Davy Graham - Folk, Blues, and Beyond... (1964). He's sort of the British Doc Watson, I think.

The Grateful Dead - Fillmore West 1969. I think I may be brain-damaged. This was thoroughly enjoyable at times, even though it is approximately 900 million hours long.

Guided By Voices - Sunfish Holy Breakfast EP (1996) and Live From Austin, TX (2007). The former is more enjoyable than the latter, but the latter sort of gets me all choked up.

I love that cover of Werewolves of London on Jumping in the Night! I really like these records too, nice how they blend their originals in with the covers to form a fairly seamless whole.
