    I've been working remotely from home. I decided to grab a stack of CD's and just play them in no particular order while working. I just finished four which seem at odds with each other.

    Daryl Hall - Laughing Down Crying (some great Philly soul tracks)
    Patty Loveless - Long Stretch of Lonesome (pure sweet country. Probably grab a George Jones CD later)
    Buddy Guy - Rhythm & Blues (Pure Buddy)
    Sgt. Pepper - Beatles (Nice to revisit after a while)

    Seems like my brain should hurt but it has been really enjoyable and passes the time quickly.

    Got an odd mix to suggest?

    Sounds good actually. I was going to say something snarky about Daryl Hall, but thought the better of it. Happy Friday!

    Back in the cassette tape days I made myself a mix tape: Side A -- random tunes, Side B -- pseudo random favorites.

    Check out some Weepies, Fountains Of Wayne, and Aoife O’Donovan (or I’m With Her).
    Great stuff, IMO.

    That's a really good album from Daryl.
    I just made a supply run - put the car stereo on random on the flash drive and got:
    Billy Cobham
    John Lennon
    Pat Metheny Group
    C.J. Solar
    the Beach Boys

    yes - grab another 4 CDs at random and keep on going! :)

    I tend to listen in that way too .... scanning thru my Recently Played in Spotify and Amazon Unltd. over the last few days, is Herbie Hancock - The Prisoner; Lettuce - Elevate; Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour; Miles Davis - The Last Word; Neil Young - Colorado; Lana Del Rey - Norman F*ing Rockwell; Bob Dylan - "Murder Most Foul"; New Riders of the Purple Sage - Panama Red; Lillie Mae - Other Girls; and Devendra Banhart - Ma. Banhart is a guy I just read about in Guitar Player and figured I'd give a listen ... very cool stuff that has considerable Donovan and Nilsson influences to my ears.

    Good mix. Used to really enjoy Live from Daryl's House on YT.
    From my CD's I could grab:
    Beethoven's Symphony No.3 'Eroica'
    Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland
    The Pogues - If I Should Fall from Grace With God
    Napalm Death - From Enslavement to Obliteration.
    Mix it up, man. Mix it up.

    Just out for a walk. My iPhone playlist du jour was Blues Favorites. Lots of Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and Elmore James. Nothing like some classic Chicago blues to keep you grounded.

    I never caught the Pogues with Strummer. Saw them with Spider Stacey on lead vocals.
    They played my home town with Joe but the Ramones were playing the same night.
    Difficult decision but the Ramones won.
    Next time they toured, Shane was back.

    I listened to Bucky Pizzarelli and Dopethrone and Lucero today, but it doesn't make me eclectic. It just makes me a guitar freak.

    Taste that isn't eclectic can get pretty narrow and uninteresting.

    I was chatting recently with a repairman at my place who was into gear, guitars, and heavy metal.

    Every time I mentioned an artist or piece of gear that wasn't metal related, I could see his his mind shut down. Boring.

    Eclectic? I copied my USB memory stick with 3000 singles and 60 concerts to my laptop so can listen while I work. I have a lot of country, Americana, and folk and some newer indy. This is the contents of one of my "Eclectic Live Mix" folders. In all I have more than 120 similarly sized folders plus albums. I never lack music to open but sometimes have a hard time choosing.
