New compilation of Japanese folk (with the marvellous title of Even A Tree Can Shed Tears) is an absolute stunner. So much gorgeous music, so many artists I've never heard of who I'll now need to check out. Big recommendation.

Absolutely lovely comp with invaluable lyric translations by Hisham Bharoocha, whose name is unfortunately misspelled in the liners.

New Pacific Breeze comp is pretty great. Not sure it's as great as the first volume, need a few more spins to determine.

THIS TRACK is dope as hell

Paul, you'd like the "Tokyo Nights" compilation.

Liking Pacific Breeze 2 almost as much as the first... that was more than enough for me to order the CD and dig a bit deeper on some of this stuff. All these compilations are getting me back into Japanese music after a long time away ٩(◕‿◕)۶

Spring Cleaning 20202 Sale happening. Lots of interesting looking stuff here. Anyone have any favorites from this list they'd recommend? I have a few things in my cart already but I'm gonna spend at least $75 to get the free shipping. Not a huge fan of horror soundtracks (though I can be convinced if there's one that's especially good or unique) but everything else is fair game:

Oh, and I did love that link above, maffew12! Thank you. If the whole comp is of that caliber I'm going to have to pick it up.

Paul Ponzi, Sunday, 31 May 2020 11:42 (three days ago) link

Thanks for the spring cleaning tip. I picked up the 8LP Giant Sand box for $54!

Cow_Art, Sunday, 31 May 2020 12:46 (three days ago) link

Yeah, the Giant Sand box is an incredible deal. I snagged a couple of the Bevis Frond records from them recently too.

Spring Cleaning pages are staggering, but---The ones I'm most familiar with here are the Blaze soundtrack, if you're into outsidery Texas singer-songwriters (not too outsidery: Blaze was cherished and covered by ornery inside-outside stars like the latter-day Merle Haggard etc). This one made my Nashville Scene Top Ten. Also, even more in thee same vein, because vintage and various artists who are smokey pillars of East Nashville etc, the Heartworn Highways soundtrack, from the classick 70s documentary, with Townes Van Zandt, David Allan Coe, Guy and Susanna Clark and so on. Country Funk Vol. 2 has some keepers, though also some "OMG we're white stoned country *and* funky!" self-amazed goobers.
A friend of mine used to play Bernard Hermann's Taxi Driver quite a bit, and though I never heard it when my friend wasn't talking, the music came over and around him pretty well.
Only heard The Exorcist in the theater, but music and sound design by far the best elements of that otherwise lurid-to-ludicrous/70s-as-hell-flick (not nec. a bad thing, but sonics best of all).
Haven't heard those particular Goblin soundtracks, or other titles, but how bad could they be? Ditto those Lizzy Mercier Descloux titles, judging by the ZE reisses I do have.
Early 70s live Funkadelic, Bert Jansch, maybe This Heat, The Camberwell Now.

thanks!

If you're at all interested this edition of the Taxi Driver Soundtrack is the one to own. It's the only release that contains the complete score. The original release is sort of a train wreck; the first side is some chirpy shit that wasn't even in the movie IIRC.
