At the end of the Tom Hanks movie Castaway, he meets a woman at a crossroads. She's the owner of the ranch where he finally delivered the battered package from his long ordeal. The implication is that maybe she's the one he's been looking for to move on from his wife. The woman in the pickup truck is attractive. You get the idea that he could follow her down the dusty road to a new life. Maybe he did. Maybe he didn't. The movie leaves it as an open question.

I met her. She was a country singer in the late 90s who had a couple of hit songs. A very sweet and talented person who unfortunately passed away from cancer a few years back.

God damnit Ford. That's not the happy ending I created in my mind for that movie.

This is why some of us listen to nihilistic metal, because the real world sucks. Kids get cancer and die from starvation every day, and it doesn't seem like there is a helpful god watching over us.

Etta James, from just about any stage of her career. Faves: Watch Dog, Deep in the Night (play this on a rainy night in the car...), I'd Rather Go Blind, My Mother in Law, Laying Beside You, any cover of an Otis Redding tune (she knew how to pick 'em and how to respect 'em.) That rich molasses voice. Goddamn, she had it.

The Specials were -- at their peak -- brilliant. I think my favorite is Too Much Too Soon, with Gangsters as a runner-up. Terry Hall cracks me up with his wiseguy accent -- don't know what part of London or UK it typifies, but he's perfect for the band.

I was pretty sure Terry was a Brummie (Birmingham, England) but now that I checked he was actually from Coventry which is pretty close. I enjoyed some of his Fun Boy Three stuff too. there were some good Ska/2Tone bands around that time, The Selector, UB40, Madness.

Two cd's that may be perfectly legal, but who knows (they can be found on both American and UK Amazon).
Ry Cooder: The Complete Bottom Line Broadcast 1974
Randy Newman: Live at the Boarding House ('72)
Both capture these unique artists at the stage where they had released their first influential albums and hit their stride as a blues interpreter (Ry) and a singer songwriter of razor-edged wit (Randy). Wonderful full-length concerts for car trips. Lots of comments to the audience.

Transformer by Lou Reed.
Picked up the recent Speaker's Corner reissue and comparing to the original release. While the Speaker's Corner vinyl is less noisy, the 1971 US first pressing has slightly better dynamics. Or maybe I am just used to the original since I've been listening to it for 35 years. Highly recommend this album if you don't have it. If you have the right gear, the base on this record will shake your house.
