"Almost all absurdity of conduct arises from the imitation of those whom we cannot resemble."
-Samuel Johnson

Ah, the joys of the semi-regular world music covers show. Many international artists got their start listening to "Western" pop music, and sometimes return to pay tribute to these influences. Or maybe they're just messing with us. In any case, it's big fun to explore these gems. Apologies to the listener who requested something from Seu Jorge off the Life Aquatic soundtrack -- just didn't have time to dig that up.

In the second hour, we heard mostly new releases.

See Spin the Globe's CD Reviews for reviews and info on new releases. Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available on CD at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or via mp3 downloads at the Calabash.
