Robert AshleyPrivate Parts ... LP
Lovely, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of the most important records from composer Robert Ashley – and one that's got a compact approach that helped it circulate a lot more than some of Ashley's larger operas! This piece is very much like those – with Ashley's unique spoken approach – part poetry, part performance art – but the sound is more stripped-down, and in the spirit of the young downtown New York generation of Laurie Anderson and Phillip Glass – served up with great instrumental help from contemporary Blue Gene Tyranny, who plays piano, moog, and clavinet – with some additional tablas for accompaniment! The whole thing was recorded at the important Center For Contemporary Music on the west coast, at Mills College – and is almost a Bay Area answer to some of the more compelling art records from the New York scene. The record is divided into 2 parts – "The Park" and "The Backyard" – both filled with a hypnotic mix of voice, keyboards, and tablas! (Out Sound, Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mister RogersIt's Such A Good Feeling – The Best Of Mister Rogers ... CD
Omnivore, Early 90s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A full set of vocal performances by the legendary Fred Rogers – mostly tracks from later years, and all done with superb accompaniment from Johnny Costa – who provides the spare, sprightly piano lines that always make the Mister Rogers lyrics sparkle so much! You'll recognize most of these tunes from the famous show – if you were lucky enough to watch it when you were a kid – and the CD is a nicely overwhelming package of the sorts of upbeat, positive tunes that Rogers always gave us on the airwaves – every bit as understated here as on the screen, in a set that also features a few unreleased tracks too. 23 tracks in all – including "Pretending", "Tomorrow", "You Can Never Go Down The Drain", "Today Is A Very Special Day", "Be Brave Be Strong", "You're Growing", "I'm Taking Care Of You", "Once Upon Each Lovely Day", "It's You I Like", and "The Clown In Me".
