Garage Music

What do we listen to at the garage?  Well, the list is shorter of what we don't listen to!  Generally I can be found combing the clearance area at my neighbourhood Half-Price Books where recently I have unearthed many tasty sound bites.... recently I found a tribute to Curtis Mayfield from 1998.  It features several artists ranging from Jerry Butler to Delbert McClinton to Huey Lewis and the News, all doing cover versions of Curtis Mayfield songs. there are several standouts in the group...surprisingly one of them being an  a Capella version of "It's Alright" by Huey Lewis and The News...if you can find it, I highly recommend this disc.
