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
