23 Jun 2007, 1:38Just listened to Poe's Haunted. I discovered her three or four years ago at Radio Paradise, an excellent and eclectic internet radio station. I end up hearing more new stuff I like that I've never heard of at that station. It's worth it to you to check that site out and support them.
Anyway, Poe. I heard Haunted and bought the album the next day. She's got an incredibly rich voice. If you visit her web site, which is a confusing mess in my opinion, she mentions some sort of contractual fight with her record company that has prevented her from recording. This is the reason she hasn't produced anything new in the last 7 years.
That's rather sad. Poe is an artist who should be encouraged to produce as much new material as possible.
14 Jun 2007, 22:30Listening to For a Thousand Mothers by Jethro Tull and I find myself pleasantly surprised. I've always been a fair weather fan, I love Songs From The Wood mainly because it's THE album to play as you head to the local ren faire, and I've got the 20th anniversary boxed set, but they aren't on my every day playlist nor do they reside on my iPod. Based on this track, I'm going to make a concerted effort to change that.
