Birthday favorites

Today is my birthday, so here for your enjoyment and especially mine is an extremely random selection of some of my favorite things ever:

The Meters - Good Old Funky Music



Frank Zappa - Apostrophé


Thelonious Monk - Brake's Sake


Many more after the break:


Butthole Surfers - Sweat Loaf (some explanation, since this may strike some as an odd inclusion- for 6 months in 1992 I worked for a messenger service in LA, and the only cassettes I had to listen to 8 hours a day were Coltrane's Live at the Village Vanguard and Live at Birdland, along with the Butthole Surfers' Psychic... Powerless and Locust Abortion Technician. That was a strange period).


John Coltrane - Tunji


Stan Freberg - Heartbreak Hotel / Rock Island Line



Bill Frisell - Before We Were Born


Tethered Moon - Alabama Song


Marx Brothers - You Brought A New Kind Of Love To Me


Old and New Dreams - Chairman Mao


Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Secret Agent Super Dragon


Johnny Hartman - Stairway To The Stars
