Athens, Georgia – All hail the vinyl. I’ve got a few solid titles for listening to today. Please, let me share.

Rick James’ “High on Your Love Suite/One Mo Hit (Of Your Love)” is glorious. Know this. Rickie Lee Jones’ debut album was selected for no particular reason. Cecil Taylor. If you follow me here [or, on Instagram], you know I am a major fan of the eighty-eight year old avant-garde jazz pianist/composer. Taylor’s work is not for the faint at heart. Dark To Themselves is perfection.

“Late this afternoon, I scored this copy of ‘Cecil Taylor Unit’ for two dollars while thrifting. This title has been on my list forever. It’s in very good condition. (I) almost didn’t hang in there (i.e., keep crate digging) due to the copious amounts of empty covers. Far out, man.”
