Ok, I used to be a big Billy Joel fan and recently I stumbled across an article that mentioned an FM recording of a concert he gave at CW Post College in 1977. Trying bittorrent for the first time (actually used this client), I downloaded this show. Fantastic quality for a fantastic show during a fantastic period of his career.

this album is truely amazing. A real pity that The Sheila Divine broke up. If you get a chance, Aaron Perrino's new band Dear Leader is rockin'. Liane and I saw them in concert at the paradise in Boston. Great show and they even covered one of my favorite Smiths song ("There's a light that never goes out").

amazing 3 cd set from the magnetic fields. The idea 69 songs about love. The first song starts with "a" (Absolutely Cuckoo) and the last starts with "z" (Zebra). Convinced yet? Also, Highly rated on pitchfork.
