Show Notes: Very
summery show this week, with lots of songs about and evoking sun, sweat,
tropics. Just the thing after the weather teased us with near-90s temperatures
last week, only to retreat to the 60s in the last few days. Also played some
new releases (see the reviews page for more)
and talked with Vassili of Children of the
Revolution about their newest
CD, Revolution, their Seattle show tomorrow, and his musical philosophy.
Our cover song of the week was back with a vengeance -
and it brought friends! We heard Bakra Bata's version of Lord Kitchner's
"Gimme de Ting," Brazil and Beyond's cover of "Eleanor
the sublime Lila Downs retooling the Mexican classic "La Cucaracha."
For that matter, we also had a cover of Fela's "Shakara/Lady
Part Two" - what a busy day for the CSOTW!
