Comments: Rhythm in Exile

Ok - I don't agree with most of your pics, but you can certainly make a good argument for them. Except Chris Isaak. In the entire history of music, I am willing to be there is at least one album better than that one.

Hi Zach,

Well, I did only rank it sixth out of the list, although I must say in retrospect it probably deserved the No. 9 spot. But ah well. It's an enjoyable CD -- at least for me -- and as always, fabulous driving music. That's enough in my book!

I'm guessing by your recent addition of Robert Mitchum as Captain Pug Henry to your collage that "War and Remembrance" may be a recent discovery for you. I remember when it first came to TV, when I was in middle school, I think, and my dad taped it all, and I watched it on tape several times. It prompted me to go out and get the novels "Winds of War" and "War & Remembrance" by Herman Wouk -- good reads, if you haven't read them yet...

Geoff,

Yeah, they're great reads -- and I am thrilled that War & Remembrance is out on DVD. Now all we need is "The Winds of War!"
