Well, I've posted a lot of these in the "What's Everyone Listening to Tonight" thread, but here goes. . .

Anything by. . .

BaBaZuLa: Turkish rock/dub/folk/synth band, active from the mid-1990s to the present. Albums such as "XX Dub", "Psychebelly Dance".

Vas: interpretations of classical Persian, Middle Eastern and Indian classical and folk music with a modern edginess. Amazing vocalist. Albums include: "Shunyata," "Offerings," and several others.

Niyaz: as above but with more electronic and synth sounds. Based in Montreal. Same amazing vocalist.

Azam Ali: the above vocalist has done a number of solo albums as well, in particular "Portals of Grace," on which she does her own arrangements of Christian, Muslim and Jewish songs and instrumental pieces from mediaeval Spain.

Susan Deyhim: Another mind-blowing Persian vocalist, long resident in NYC. Any of her collaborations with Richard Horowitz, especially "Majoun." Solo albums include "Madman of God," "Shy Angels" (Bill Laswell's dub remix of previous).

Everybody has at least heard of Cowboy Junkies (probably my favourite Canadian band), but fewer are familiar with their recent four-disc (CD and LP) "Nomad" series or their "Kennedy Suite." And then there's that hard-to-find cover of Neil Young's "Helpless" that I find way more powerful (and compelling) than the already-powerful (and compelling) original.

Solace: "Balance," "Rhythm of the Dance," "Sleeping Sober," "Ruin of Ghosts," "Anathema," "Nagari," "Moon Moth Mixes," "The Gathering Season," and many others. Some of these discs (CD and MP3 only) were originally commissioned as practice tapes for belly dance schools, but the music, blending modern electronic, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Chinese instruments and styles far transcends that. . .a fistful of Solace CDs was obligatory when I went down to Meyer Sound Labs in California to audition their big X-10 monitors. Even the engineers there were impressed!

Tinariwen: getting quite well-known now, but hardly mainstream; one of several great Tuareg exponents of what these days is called the "desert blues." One possible description: what happened when Tuareg tribesman fighting for their cultural survival against fundamentalist Islam discovered the electric guitar. . .

Khruangbin: A three-piece guitar/bass/drums rock band out of Dallas, TX inspired by Thai R 'n' B from the 70s and 80s. They've played in Toronto twice in the past year. Cool, jazzy, bouncy, and fun, live or on record. Their second album (CD and LP) comes out at the end of January. Hope they'll be back in or near T-O to tour it!

I could go on, but that's enough for now! Happy listening all and thanks to all posters for their contributions!

There are many but this is probably my favorite: Carlene Carter backed by Rockpile and produced by Nick Lowe. Too 'country' for AOR radio stations when it was released in 1980 and too rockin' for C&W stations so it had a difficult time finding an audience. One of the lost treasures of that era.

That's one I gotta check out. Carlene Carter channeled by Nick Lowe sounds like a perfect match!

Many thanks for the tip!

This one you're likely to find in the $2 crates at the record shows:

Hi,

Oh My! Mae Moore and Lester Quitza. Acoustic guitars and voice recorded on an old school one inch four track in Lester's forest home. Awesome.

Cheers,
David Neice


Saw this couple live here in Orangeville a few years ago.Sensational!

If you are looking for recordings it's spelled Quitzau.

No One's Listening Anymore by Klute. Was at Doctor Disc in Hamilton one day when they were playing it. Asked the girl working there if they had one for sale. They did. Gotta buy me another one soon, this one's almost worn out.

This one has probably fallen off alot of people's radar. It was a minor hit with the audiophile crowd back in '87. Raw and beautiful.

Debut solo album from "E" aka Mark Oliver Everett of the band Eels. Imo this album is a minor pop classic.

Masters Of Reality- Sunrise On The Suffer Bus

Hard, Bluesy psychadelic rock from the fathers of the Stoner Rock genre with the legendary Ginger Baker behind the kit. Imagine Black Sabbath meets Cream meets the Beatles.

Ian Gillan/Roger Glover- Accidently On Purpose

Two longtime Deep Purple alumni collaborate on one of the most surprising and ignored, records of the late eighties. Don't expect Deep Purple as only one track on this fantastic release even remotely resembles Deep Purple.

RTZ- Return To Zero

Debut release from Boston's late vocalist Brad Delp's side project. Underrated straight ahead Rock'N' Roll that is better than anything Boston released after their debut.

Neil Finn- Try Whistling This

Former Split Enz and Crowded House frontman's debut solo effort. Traditional haunting Finn pop melodies merged with techno rhythms to a surprisingly successful effect.
