Rob Buys Me Music

Way back in April, Rob Paterson was kind enough to make me a gift of an iTunes gift certificate. I’m a slow shopper, so it’s taken me this long to make my way through $35 of purchasing, but today I dropped down to a balance of 21 cents, so I’m all spent out. Here’s what I got:

  • Delusions of Klezmer, The Alexandria Kleztet
  • Slumber My Darling, Alison Krauss, Edgar Meyer, Mark O’Connor & Yo-Yo Ma
  • Dress Rehearsal, Carolyn Dawn Johnson
  • Hard Times, Eastmountainsouth
  • Hard Times, Eastmountainsouth
  • Winter, Eastmountainsouth
  • Ghost, Eastmountainsouth
  • Interlude, Eastmountainsouth
  • You Dance, Eastmountainsouth
  • So Are You to Me, Eastmountainsouth
  • Show Me the River, Eastmountainsouth
  • Rain Come Down, Eastmountainsouth
  • Still Running, Eastmountainsouth
  • All the Stars, Eastmountainsouth
  • Father, Eastmountainsouth

  • (I’ll Never Be) Your Maggie May, Suzanne Vega

Some of these have obvious immediate use — Hava Nagila for example — others, like Suzanne Vega, are old favourites. Thanks, Rob.

Never wrong to listen to Hava Nagila !!! Puts you in the mood for about just anything. =)

By the way, and perhaps uninterestingly enough, I am the brother of Olle Jonsson. That’s how I found my way to this blog/site, you encouraged OJ (Simpson, haha) to make a podcast (or as I would put it — a recording of one’s own voice).
