7/5/2012 ‘(Earfuls of) Dust ‘N’ Dry Bones’ tracklist

It would be nice to imagine a throng of music-lovers have been waiting for this tardy list, using caffeine, chocolate or nicotine to keep from gnashing teeth, pulling hair, biting nails  or scratching themselves without itch. Obviously this isn’t the case, but if anyone is interested in what tracks might have been plucked from The Kitchen Sink’s collection for inclusion under the ‘desert-noir’ umbrella, then here you are…..

11)RY COODER – TRAIN TO FLORIDA / from ‘Geronimo: An American Legend’ OST/ Sony 1993

And that train to Florida brought our sonic sojourn in the desert to a close. It was out into the cool of a Brno night for me, no rattlers or scorpions to worry about, just the rattle of wrappers and other litter  unsettled by the breeze……

Another tracklist coming up very soon. Til then, wish you (the invisible, probably imaginery throng!) all many a sonic delight, S.
