JEFFREY MORGAN'S MEDIA BLACKOUT #423.24!
Cale & Lou Reed - Songs For Drella (Sire) :: Everything
they've done separately, no matter how good, is mere artifice compared to this sincere, monumental work of art. When's the
last time you listened to it?
The Sharp Ease - Going
Modern (olFactory) :: Meanwhile, if Cale and Lene Lovich had sired quadruplet daughters
25 years ago, those four femmes would've grown up to record this smart 'n' sassy pop album.
Tara Angell - Down And Out: The Come
Down EP (Rykodisc) :: Hide the razorblades because if ever a record lived up to its title,
it's this one. This dour dish makes Marianne Faithfull sound like Toni Basil cranked to the gills on a helium speedball.
Josh Rouse - Nashville (Rykodisc) :: Maybe the Ryman Auditorium isn't ready for a guy who sings lyrics like: "Later
on, after the show, we can go to your room, I can try on your clothes."
Cash - "A Boy Named Sue" (Columbia) :: Then again, maybe it is.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF
THE WEEK: The Devlins - Waves (Nettwerk) :: Having survived the trauma of Chas being killed by Harry Flowers, the two remaining brothers buck up
and record this fine album. I like that, turn it up.
Be seeing you!
