Maceys Window - It's Getting Harder
Sunshine Theatre - Mountain

Two sunbaked 45s from '71, lovingly compiled on this. Maceys Window are English and Sunshine Theatre are Welsh.

Kind of makes you want to throw a styrofoam cooler full of ice-cold Tecate in the trunk and drive westward, doesn't it?

Peter Gabriel: Disturbed (alternate take)

When this soundtrack came out there were many nights I would put this on before bed. For years I had no desire to see The Last Temptation of Christ for fear that it would spoil the music, no matter how great the director.

I wonder how many soundtracks are actually better than the films they represent?

East Of Eden - Northern Hemisphere

Hearing this again the other day, I was reminded of an article recently linked to by Big B ("The death of mistakes means the death of rock", written by one-time A.D. commenter Douglas Wolk), namely because I love when the bass player fucks up and goes to the chord change too early at 1:20. I'm also quite keen on the one-time modification the guitar player makes to his line at 2:10. Original airdate 4/22/08.
