Some short reviews

Miles Davis, Complete Birth of the Cool : terrific sound (relatively), a fave recording/style/group/performance.

Echo and the Bunnymen, remasters of the first three records – wonderfully done, excellent packaging, extra tunes and notes, fairly priced from one of my fave 80’s bands.

Leonard Cohen, Old Ideas: I’ma fan, and this is very funny if un-ambitious and laid-back.

Steve Wynn, Northern Aggresion: raw and rocking.

 

Also enjoying the Alien box set (9 discs!) what is some of the best horror/sci-fi movies ever, Seasons 1 & 2 of Justified what is hilarious and even thought-provoking with a charismatic cast and great (Elmore Leonard-inspired) writing, and Season 6 of X Files what was so long-lived and successful for good reason including intriguing plots and imagery and excellent cast.
