The Otherside of Daybreak

Highway to the Sun aka
Lessons Learned From Rocky 1-3

As the fam' and I prepare to hit the road for a weekend in our state's capitol, I had to repack the CD sleeve for the road. It has been raining everyday since last Sunday, and after playing ambassador to the Queen City all last week, it will be good to get the F out of dodge for a few days.

For anyone that is interested, and I know someone out there in internet land is, these are the CDs I just packed into the sleeve for the car ride.... a little sumptin' for everyone!

  • Queen Greatest Hits - the kid's favorite. 'Need Someone to Love', we'll probably hear this 20 times or so...
  • The Replacements Tim - coolest CD in the bunch
  • Julian Cope - Peggy Suicide and Better To Light a Candle Than To Curse The Darkness- a double shot of weirdness for j.
  • Yer Favorites - double CD of T Hip classics, essential road music
  • Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco
  • Scotty's Town Ballroom Sessions - a great mix he made to commemorate opening at the TB for Sharon Jones & Dap Kings a few years back.
  • Scion CD Sampler c. 16 mixed by DJ Cutler - local boy mixes good
  • Sugar Minott- 20 Greatest Super Hits - sun-splash reggae for a sunny ride! Thanks Stricker!
  • Ani D - Out of Range
  • The Headhunters- First Things First- Terry's band, my out-of-town friend Mike made me think of this one last night.
  • Blue Sky Blue - Wilco
  • Bash & Pop - Friday Night is Killing Me
  • Beth Orton - The Other Side of Daybreak- really good
  • Bebel Gilberto
  • a Brad Mix: Pumpkin Flavors by DJ Brant, aka 'sounds good 10/16/07'
  • Daft Punk - Discovery
  • M.I.A.- Kala
  • Lenny Kravitz - Love Revolution- this CD smokes
  • Room on Fire - Strokes
  • Arcade Fire - Funeral
  • Global a Go-Go - Joe Strummer and Mescaleros
  • Roland Kirk - Domino masters edition
  • Sharpshooters - Twice As Nice
  • GURU - Jazzmatazz
