The rain and weather seems to be the topic of conversation everywhere I've been this past week. Heck, I even went east of the mountains last week and tried to chase the sun. No luck - it was rainy and cold in Wenatchee too - very odd for this time of year.
Duff McKagan's column runs every Thursday on Reverb. He writes about what music is circulating through his space every Monday.
Okay... we have discovered that Comcast is offering some kick-ass older films in their pay-per-view section (Comcast is our local cable choice in the Northwest). Check out these movie soundtracks:
Soundtrack to Butch Cassidy And the Sundance Kid (Burt Bacharach): I saw this movie at a drive-in when I was probably 6 or 7 years old, and that's when I first encountered the genius of Burt Bacharach. We watched this flick last weekend - such a classic.
Sountrack to Shaft (Isaac Hayes): This record became the soundtrack of my life around 1988 for some reason. This was the same year as NWA's 'Straight Outta Compton' and Ice T's 'Power.' I secretly wanted to be O.G., and often pretended that I was!
Soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever (Bee Gees): It is rare these days for a singular group or artist to do a whole thematic sountrack. Is this because we are more interested in downloading singles these days, and not so much the idea of a 'journey'? Either way, THE BEE GEES RULE!
