Busy with work this week, so I don't have time to write much right now. Here's three random songs that have absolutely no relation to each other, other than the fact that I like them all.

MC Chris - "Fett's Vett" If you're a Star Wars geek like me, chances are you've already heard this one. If you haven't, take a listen now. I pretty sure it's the best sci-fi gangsta rap ever. From Chris's album Life's A Bitch and I'm Her Pimp, which was available as a free download from his site a while back.

Mark Curry - "Merry-Go-Round" I did a post on Mark a few months back. For some reason, I didn't put this song up at the time. It's from a compilation called This Is Hard Soul.

Screaming Trees - "No One Knows" (Live) Recorded live in the studio for Dutch radio station VARA, in the town Hilversum. Released on the promo compilation An Epic Tour De Force. The studio version is on Sweet Oblivion.(buy)

It's a big week for the holiday box sets. Really great if you're into jazz legends. Here's the new releases I'm thinking look most interesting:

AC/DC - Backtracks (buy) Rarities box.
Billie Holiday - Complete Commodore and Decca Masters (buy) Box set.
Ella Fitzgerald - Twelve Nights in Hollywood (buy) Box set.
Grant-Lee Phillips - Ladies Love Oracle (buy) Slightly expanded re-issue.
Pixies - Minotaur (buy) I'm a Pixies fan, but even I think this $230 box is a bit of overkill.
Various Artists - Pirate Radio Soundtrack (buy) A good 2 disc compilation of classics.

There's also batches of reissues from The Rolling Stones, King Diamond, Queen (yet another best-of), and a live disc from Robyn Hitchcock.

Re. Screaming Trees track: it was recorded as in-studio performance for Dutch radio station VARA, in the town Hilversum.

Cheers, P@ndora

Thanks for the info, P@ndora. The track details on the promo are written so small, I couldn't quite make them out.
