Miles Davis, "Bitches Brew"

Woo, I am seriously unequipped to comment on this. Kinda feel like I should call it a day.

Butthole Surfers, "Human Cannonball"

We're with Locust Abortion Technician here, part of the great Surfers run prior to ending up on Capitol Records, somehow. It's a record that just wanders wherever the band chooses with no particular regard to genre boundaries or anything else, something that can be very difficult to pull off but I wish more bands did.

Highball Holiday, "Why?"

A late release from Moon Records, Highball Holiday have a sort of ska/lounge music hybrid going on. It's interesting, but for the most part it's a little tame, so it's not some hidden lost gem.

(For the record, there was a different track here, by a band that I have in the library who I later learned are very sketchy, so I skipped 'em. I don't know why I feel I need to mention this.)

Michael Jackson, "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'"

While it's not the first record I bought, I think this is the first record that I owned. My sisters and I all received a copy of it in 1982 during the craze for the album, which meant there were, I believe, four copies of the record in the house for some reason.

Bob Marley, "Lively Up Yourself"


Joshua Buergel
