Time to break out my bassy IEMs:


Easily has the best tracks from Redman and Keith Murray. Where Am I and Easy Left are all-time great tracks.

Caution, this may be otaku level Clash nerd by me:

Rat Patrol from Fort Bragg, by the Clash. It's a weird bootleg; Mick Jones had mixed the entire set of songs that became Combat Rock in 1982 without consulting the rest of the band. The rest of the band weighed in, and the resulting collaborative mix became Combat Rock, my least favorite of the Clash's canon with Jones/Strummer still in the band.

Rat Patrol is a weird entity. It was recorded when the Clash were at their worst personally and least collaborative/mutually inspired. Money, drugs and ego were already taking a toll, even if Combat Rock was their biggest commercial, if not critical success. There are some songs that I think are better on Rat Patrol than on Combat Rock, and some that are just a misfire for me.

But historically, it's an interesting piece. It's a missing link between what was the Clash and what became Big Audio Dynamite, you can see Jones shifting direction.

I've been getting into Clash bootlegs, specifically.

Other than that, I've been listening to the ghost of America's integrity wail in the wind as it dissipates.

Testing out the Elegias and Amazon's HD Music service because apparently I feel like Jeff Bezos needs more money.

Also, when you have access to 24-bit music you suddenly want to listen to Journey's Separate Ways. Probably because it SOUNDS FUCKING AMAZING.
