Athens, Georgia – Not much going on today but me being a mild anxiety attack wearing a two piece navy Miro printed linen pajama set with a sleeveless beige turtleneck beneath. Here, let me remove all vestiges of sexuality from my indoor-outdoor brunch look. Head to toe my entire ensemble beat yours up in three steps. To tamp down whatever is troubling me, here are this afternoon’s selections from my collection of hot wax:
Funk or Walk [1978/ Atlantic] – The Brides of Funkenstein
Athens, Georgia – Hand selected vinyl for listening enjoyment on this first day of Fall. Really, there is nothing finer. Desolation Boulevard and On The Rise are old faves. Twins is an Ornette Coleman compilation of works from the 1960s and outtakes. The Fela Kuti/ Ginger Baker collaboration is new to me. Baker is featured on two tracks. I cannot wait to hear this cornucopia of sound.
Twins [Atlantic/ 1971] – Ornette Coleman
Desolation Boulevard [RCA/ 1974] – The Sweet
Live! [Regal Zonophone/ 1971] – Fela Ransome-Kuti and The Africa ’70 with Ginger Baker
Athens, Georgia – I’m totally cheating here [in relation to #vinyltshirttuesday]. The t-shirt I own. I’ve had it for over thirty years. The vinyl I do not possess just yet. Looking for the right price point and that sucker is mine.
