Liveblogging! Playlist for “It’s Too Damn Early” 12/10/11

December 10, 2011

I played a lot from the Accretions 25th anniversary compilation today– if you’re noticing the absence of Eric Glick-Rieman in the lineup, it’s because I’ve got so much of his stuff in tomorrow’s “Sounds Like Radio” broadcast. Next week, look for new recordings from his latest album “In My Mind, Her Image Was Reversed.” Also– played some cool new recordings from a couple favorite people– R.P. Collier sent in some goodies, and I hope you’ll take a while to check out what he’s up to; Duane Pitre also saw to it that “It’s Too Damn Early” listeners could check out his “ED09: Live At The Stone” LP here on the show. I appreciate it, and of course would like to encourage you to pick up a copy for yourself.
