Liza, That song you mentioned a while back (you asked if you were crazy to like it), the band's name escapes me, well it's on the radio all the time now and now I like it. (They remind me of Meatloaf,

C. Stamitz:  Clarinet Concertos Nos. 2-6 & 10/Concerto for Violin & Clarinet/Concerto for Clarinet & Oboe (Brunner/Chumachenco/Thunemann//Stadlmair/Münchener Kammerorchester) (you can't imagine this pleasant if inconsequential music having been better played in C. Stamitz's day)

Various:  Mission San Francisco Xavier:  Opera & Misa de los Indios (Garrido/Ensemble Elyma/Coro de Niños Cantinores de Córdoba) (GREAT stuff)

Schubert:  Symphonies Nos. 2 & 4 "Tragic" (Böhm/Berliner Philharmoniker) (the least tragic anything labelled "tragic" in probably all of Western culture)

Gluck:  Orfeo ed Eurycide:  Dance of the Blessed Spirits//Beethoven:  Symphony No. 5//Mendelssohn:  A Midsummer Night's Dream:  Scherzo & other incidental music (Toscanini/Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York)

of Montreal:  The Sunlandic Twins

Mayr:  Gioas (Brown/Seller/Frey/Burkhardt//Hauk/Simon Mayr Chorus & Ensemble/Bavarian State Opera Chorus) (everything is totally forgettable except the tune that's directly ripped off from Cosi, which is memorable cuz you already know and love it)

Price:  Symphonies Nos. 1 & 4 (Jeter/Fort Smith Symphony) (showing that boring mainstream classical music is boring even when written by a Black woman)

Joni Mitchell:  The Early Years (1963-1967) (Disc 5) (it's 1967, and you go to a folk club in Ann Arbor, and you hear this 23-year-old with no albums out sing these songs with that voice:  what do you think?   Other than that you're the luckiest person in the world?)

Rosemary Standley/Dom Le Nena:  Birds on a Wire (when I'm in a particularly bougie mood, music like this is my favorite thing)

Micah Thomas:  Tide

Mendelssohn:  A Midsummer Night's Dream Overture//Bach:  Orchestral Suite No. 3:  Air on a G String (not what you're thinking)//Schubert:  Rosamunde:  Ballet Music No. 2/Die Zauberharfe Overture//Wagner:  Lohengrin Prelude/Tristan und Isolde:  Prelude und Liebestod//Strauss:  Til Eulenspiegels Lustige Streiche (Furtwängler/Berliner Philharmoniker) (first, this silences all controversy:  Furtwängler was the best ever, period) (second, these remasterings are far better than what we'd expect from a major label:  these ancient recordings sound amazingly good) (third, what better to listen to on Thanksgiving than a famous Nazi collaborator?)

Rancid:  Life Won't Wait

Everly Brothers:  Down in the Bottom:  The Country Rock Sessions 1966-1968 (Disc 3:  Roots) (one of the great early country-rock albums -- meaning one of the only great country-rock albums) (one of the great albums of 1968) (I LOVE this album) (the bonus tracks are pretty fab as well)

Houston Person:  I'm Just a Lucky So and So

Beethoven:  String Quartets Nos. 12 & 14 (Tokyo String Quartet) (might I opine that No. 14 is the greatest music ever written by a white European male?)
