Radiodred

The strangest thing I found on eMusic this week, while searching for a version of Toots Hibbert’s “Pressure Drop”: Radiodread, by the Easy All Stars, is a reggae reinetpretation of OK Computer. (It used to be that I said of highly implausible things “That’s about as likely as a reggae version of OK Computer.” I’ll have to come up with something else now, I guess.) Suggesting either the broadening or the decline of my taste in music, it’s not at all bad.

Confirming your impressions of said taste, I’m happy to see that eMusic is stocking a pretty good John Prine catalogue now (Steve Goodman is new there, too). They’re not offering his Missing Years but they do have a great live version of that album’s almost-title song “Jesus, the Missing Years.” Good stuff.
