got the jazzin' wreckroom blues
we went out to best buy friday nite to blow some of our refund moola. sharon heads for the music dvds, and i stumble over to the box set section . i was lucky to find a copy of ken burns' 'jazz'.
it is great! i watched the series when it was on pbs, but never got around to the set. there was always something else i wanted first, like martin scorsese's 'the blues', or sun records 8 cd set, '50 golden years', that we got at sun studios in memphis for only 60 bucks, (which is now almost impossible to find for less than $150!).
so we have been jukin' and jivin' and singing the blues all weekend, with the occasional dvd foray, (we plowed thru the u2 'elevation' dvd, next up is the 'crossroads guitar festival' show w/ eric clapton et al and i really can't belive sharon sat thru the whole 'end of the century - the story of the ramones', had to be the wine).
well, time to put another dime in the jukebox . . .
and here are few gems that have had the wreckroom jumpin'!
