Nice list - I enjoy this kind of thing (as opposed to "best of" or "top 10" variety) because they offer a chance to break out of my internal heavy rotation selections.

Balanced, (way) out of the ordinary: thanks for this. I'll even give Rubberlegs another try.


Remember Ry Cooder singing the Twenties/Thirties number "Taxes on the farmer feed us all"? Those were the days... Farmers could make a living, people actually paid their taxes instead of skating, the implied social safety net was soon to be realized (even as the duststorms and the greedy banksters destroyed that tax base).
