    finally got around to this one. fantastic articles reprinted from magazines and newspapers in 2003 - my favorites were a profile of james brown, the history of NWA and LA rap, a spin article on why mexicans love morrissey, an interview with tom waits, and a profile on fat possum records and the old bluesmen that they record. a good compilation but i skipped the stuff on jazz, country and other genres that i'm not into. minor complaint, but valid enough: da capo really should have had someone pro finally got around to this one. fantastic articles reprinted from magazines and newspapers in 2003 - my favorites were a profile of james brown, the history of NWA and LA rap, a spin article on why mexicans love morrissey, an interview with tom waits, and a profile on fat possum records and the old bluesmen that they record. a good compilation but i skipped the stuff on jazz, country and other genres that i'm not into. minor complaint, but valid enough: da capo really should have had someone proofread this thing. typos abound, and a few instances of missing punctuation. annoying.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I got this from my sister one Christmas and I held off reading it under recently. I really enjoyed most of the essays; especially the ones about James Brown and Tom Waits respectively. I was disappointed with the jazz essays; I thought they were tedious and I didn't learn much about the genre. Oh, and for those who have read the essays or happened to read the article "Who's that Girl?" in the New York Times back in 2003, Amanda Latona (the artist profiled) is on I wasn't sure what to expect when I got this from my sister one Christmas and I held off reading it under recently.

Oh, and for those who have read the essays or happened to read the article "Who's that Girl?" in the New York Times back in 2003, Amanda Latona (the artist profiled) is on YouTube and after hearing a couple of her songs, I now know why her career went nowhere :P

    Of note is Chuck Klosterman's Viva Morrissey!, a Spin article in which he profiled the odd Mexican adoption of the effeminate singer and Best Band in the Land by Bill Tuomala where he puts Van Halen as the underdog in a saturated punk rock world.
